no bashing just praise...

though he has fumbled 51 times in 4 years he did reduce the number from 14 to 13 last year! they are getting better at recovering them too. i hope the new oc still keeps the qb fumble drill in practices.

he has effectively adapted to the shorter range west coast offense style. his number of 40+ yard completions the last 4 years has gone from 13 to 12 to 7 to 5. it could possibly be complete mastery next season.

I\'m sorry LK but I can\'t let that go. 99% of the time Brooks fails to complete dump-off passes to RBs and TEs becuae he is obsessed with finding a WR downfield. This is especially true when he is under pressure. He needs to recognize pressure better and find the short dump offs rather than scrambling looking down field and either throwing into coverage or barely throwing the ball away before he gets sacked (or goes out of bounds).

If he would adapt in this one area, I believe it alone would improve his completion percentage, his interception/TD ratio, and his fumbling problem.

I don\'t think this is a negative post. Just an observation on one way he could improve.

I am positive the \"west coast offense\" is only used when your quarterback can\'t read defenses well enough to make plays or throw the ball down feild with consistency. I hate this offense...it is assinine.

oh-this is for positives on AB: I am positive if would pamper his line, stay late and watch film and dedicate himself to the game he might, just might be a good quarterback.

He did say there was love on the team, albeit false. But false love is a type of love right?

He has a super-strong arm - which allows him to laser throws into the ground at his WRs feet. I mean, with out an arm like that, he\'d just get sacked when he held onto the ball too long! You guys just can\'t see the positives.

I am also positive that when all else fails, he will make a bone-headed play. But it is all about the effort isn\'t it? And noone can doubt the effort he puts into trying not to look smarter than anyone else on the field. He does the opposite. That\'s dedication.

Wouldn\'t guess that would have anything to do with time in the pocket?

I also like how his helmet looks way too big, like one of those bobbleheads. That guy never stops trying to entertain.

by staying in the pocket more he has been able to reduce his yards per running attempt from 4.5 to 4.1 to 3.2 to 3.0 the last four seasons

Also, by staying under center a second longer after he calls for the ball, he allows those pesky speed rushers to get behind him while he makes his ten stop drop.

he is wonderfully charitable with his community \"read to pass\" program. rumor has it he is considering expanding it to some sort of game strategy involving the other team\'s defense.

Or creating ingenious new ways of finding an open player, like an offensive lineman, 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage. ;)

ok, ok, maybe not mr. left coast but give him due for completing less long passes every year. he\'s got THAT aspect down. at this rate zero 40+ yders next year.

He always finds SOMEONE open, even if it is a Denver LB. It\'s the NFL\'s fault they don\'t count TDs for the other team for the QB.
