To all Brooks' Bashers.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brooks is a woman and has a 36D bust. I\'m pretty sure his trade value with fans in San Fran is going up this very minute....

okay-even though I don\'t totally agree..i\'ll agree with this--so either 1. we get into the playoffs or 2. we get a high draft pick-but atleast we won\'t be lukewarm anymore.
No. We could draft a QB who carries our team to another 8-8 season. I call false dichotomy here.

Given the rate at which 1st round QBs succeed, we are roughly 30% likely to get a bust (think Rick Mirer, Akili Smith, etc.). Furthermore, even if we get a guy who will be better than Brooks, my analysis in another thread (which I won\'t repeat here), demonstrates that statistically speaking our new guy will be worse than Brooks for the next two seasons.

I understand the intangibles arguments and that people are tired of Brooks stuff, but, again statistically speaking, you guys are betting on a horse that is both unproven and overwhelming likely to not be good for a couple of years.

I\'d like to see more consideration of proven QBs - like Brees - rather than this speculation (unfounded statistically) that a rookie could make it happen for us. There just isn\'t reason to believe that (unless a MUCH MORE detailed argument for particular rookies is given - which it hasn\'t).

a 36D bust
It is taking every ounce of self control I have right now NOT to post a photo.

Should I start the chant?

Bust... Bust... Bust...

Do it, BMG, do it. (Double entendre intended.)

Things are about to get ugly!

Thanks JK. I know you weren\'t fishing for compliments, but I have to say you are making some highly intelligent points on this thread. No way I could tackle it that well. You\'re doing the \"Militant Moderates\" proud. (Sounds better than \"The Fencers\")

Scotty, I\'m not sure how we ended up on a team, but I\'ll take it. My sunshiner days have passed, but I did enjoy them. However, those moonshiner types scare me a bit - I think they party a lot...

Reminds me of a song: Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right...and I\'m stuck in the middle with you.
