The NEW Rumor!!! HUGE!!!

"BIG NEWS:
I heard from a buddy at Mardi Gras while down in NO that Aaron Brooks is going to HOLD OUT if the Saints fail to renogotiate his contract before the season. It seems Aaron feels that he is deserving of a TRUE top 5 contract, and that his pittily$36 million no longer fits that category. AB believes that he is in the same realm as Manning, Culpepper, and McNabb. He thinks his development and success is being held back by a team with poor coaches and underacheiving players. He also thinks that his ability to make money in endorsements is greatly effected by the small market and Delhomme-biased fans of New Orleans. He wants the team to move to LA, but in lieu of that, he will demand a big money contract similar to the $100 million one Peyton Manning recently received. The guy who told me this works for the Zephyrs, is constantly down on Airline, knows a number of executives and other officials with the Saints, and is highly plugged into the professional sports market in N.O. In fact, he met with Hornets officials when the team moved, but they ultimately brought their existing people that work in his capacity.

So what do you guys think? Is Aaron Brooks worth Peyton Manning money? Can you believe that this guy is demanding $100 million??!!!"

Are you kidding me?

He\'s undoubtedly NOT worth Manning money...And..He\'s NOT a top 5 QB..never was...

I hope against hope that somehow...the team can get rid of him this Offseason...

Seems like everybody\'s going to try to cash in from the 4 game winning streak last year....

What are you talking about? It\'s an internet rumor about how Aaron Brooks wants Peyton Manning money b/c he\'s a \"great quarterback.\" You don\'t think he\'s worth it?

Don\'t see the team getting rid of him unless he gets busted like Q. Carter and I don\'t see him as a top 5 - didn\'t he prove that over the last two seasons? Did\'t he prove that in his decision making in almost every game last season???

I think there is a lot of room for optimism that the new QB coach might be able to further refine AB\'s ability and teach him how to make good decisions and LEAD!!!

He\'s certainly going to only hurt himself if he thinks a holdout is going to improve his value

DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!

He\'s the greatest!! His ability to drop balls on the 1 inch line are surpassed by none. His ability to throw a ball at the speed of sound to a receiver 4 feet away have no other QB in the league to compare to. His ability to inspire mediocrity in his teammates has not been seen since the days of Danny White of the Cowgirls. No one could be this dense and not get at least $100 million. Pony it up, Uncle Tom; we need 5-6 more 8-8 seasons. Wow!! I\'m pumped. Pay the money I say. :exclam:
