About AB and the Saints...

Outside the Tampa game, the line blocked better, the D played MUCH better, special teams stepped up, and he still looked like crap more than he looked even decent. I am tired of that. But it\'s all good.
Yet we won all four. I wonder how many we\'d have won had those units played like that all year. I\'m think 10 minimum and a playoff trip. The bashers would still be calling for his head.

I guess it comes down to this for me. Plenty of basher say all the time that he is crap, yet they want to trade him and get at least a 2nd round pick. Hello? If he\'s crap, he ain\'t worth a second round pick.

So, basically, i sit here everyday trying to figure out that paradox. Which is made 1000 times more difiicult when some guy wants to point out the weaknesses in my examples rather than the main points.

Yeah, 25, I know. But the thing is every QB has fluctuations from year to year. I didn\'t mean to imply that it would get better every year., but that he improved it and even this year didn\'t degrade into an abysmal stat.

whether for ousting or keeping i think it would be some kinda magnificent treatise to convince people he has improved every year for 5 years. yes, i believe the win/loss record and passer ratings show no improvement and inconsistency. people see beyond the numbers though- the fumble at the cardinals goal line, the backwards pass, the assinine statements. carr is on a still poor team that might possibly contend next year. people are behind him no matter what the stats cuz they are going in the right direction. harrington is on a still poor team that might possibly contend next year. there is quite a growing negative buzz about him though. why? not wins or losses, not stats, just the proven product on the field. this is what i sense about brooks not just on this board but on others, the press, and from columnists and commentators i respect. teams can contend because of the qb or in spite of them. i think his 5 year track record and the sense of where he is at or going doesnt justify his contract cost, much less the 10 yr/10mil extension variety.
