What's that? An Aaron Brooks thread?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Yep, against my better judgement, I'm starting a Brooks' thread!! First: In all likelyhood, Brooks will be the starting QB for the Saints next season. Second, not nearly enough folks talk about the positives of Aaron Brooks. And third, Brooks ...

What's that? An Aaron Brooks thread?

Yep, against my better judgement, I'm starting a Brooks' thread!!

First: In all likelyhood, Brooks will be the starting QB for the Saints next season.

Second, not nearly enough folks talk about the positives of Aaron Brooks.

And third, Brooks has proven he can take us to the playoffs and win!!!

Lots of folks say we're at a disadvantage with Brooks having to learn a new system. (Even though we might still use the same or close to the same system)

But, let's say we do go to another system.

Remember it was Brooks who took us to our only playoff victory in his first year in the "system".

Granted he free-lanced a lot a made more plays with his legs.

Well, I - for one - want to see more of that. I think that's a plus.

Hopefully, a new offensive coordinator will demand that. Not that I want Brooks to do a Mike Vick impersonation. I'd just like to see more of it from Brooks.

That is all .... for now!!

Positives
1. I\'m positive our problems on offense are NOT entirely Brooks\' fault.
2. I\'m positive he is a decent QB.
3. I\'m positive we need a change of identity.
4. I\'m positive replacing Brooks will change our identity.
5. I\'m positive we better have a QB just as good as AB if we do let him walk.
6. I\'m positive many will be happy, and many won\'t.
7. I\'m positive we\'ll hear \"I told you so\" no matter what happens.

LOL...

There\'s only one thing I\'m positive of.

And that is this thread will quickly start to deteorate just as soon as some folks read it...


Anyone wanna bet on that?? :P

1. Agreed
2. I\'d rank him on the + side of decent
3. Agreed
4. Agreed, but there are a lot of things that can be done to accomodate an identity change, and a new OC is one of \'em.
5. Agreed and I\'m not sure who that would be since I don\'t subscribe to the \"anybody but Brooks\" theory that\'s so popular around here.
6. Agreed
7. I\'d probably be one of \'em. LOL

:soleil:

I suppose your definition of deterioate is to disagree.

Oh contraire monfraire !!!

Just the opposite. But sooner or later the \"Leon\" reference will get tossed in or one of those other silly comments and no good discussion will come of this thread.

That leaves the field pretty wide-open. Gumbo (the mascot) could probably fill that requirement!!

If you knew that going in, then why start the thread to begin with. Hasn\'t this horse been beaten enough. There are those of us that think enough is enough, and the only way that he, and not you, is going to shut us up is to stop making underhand passes that get intercepted for TD\'s, stop throwing backwards to linemen, stop having butterfingers, stop killing drives in the red zone, and bring us back to the playoffs. All the positive talk in the offseason is just that...talk. Most of us are in favor of positive production, and not a bunch of promises from die-hard Brooks fans that fade into oblivion by the end of the season.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

at the beginning of the season i was huge brooks supporter. now im not ready to see him leave yet this year. i dont think this year we can get anyone better. he ahs the ability to be a very good qb. but he has to mature and lead this team. i never knew how much of a lack of a leader he was until his comments right before the last game. if he cant change that then eventually he has to go. but for now we need him for one more year. in my opinion.

Agreed all around LB. \"I\'ll start a thread I know some will disagree with and call them out on it BEFORE they ever post.\" Classic. And I wonder why most have bothered not to respond. Hhhmmm
