Something Positive about Brooks. I must be insane.

Ok, this just occured to me and I'm going to put it out there like an alcoholic admits alcoholism.

I have never been more confident in a Saints QB to score a TD when needed in the last 3 or 4 minutes of a game to win.

This isn't about why we needed that score or why it might have been his fault we were down. I think if people are honest with themselves they feel pretty much the same way. Never in Saints history could you expect a Saints offense to go down the field late in a game and score the winning TD or what should be the winning TD if the D could only hold the other team for a minute and a half.

Yeah, I must be ill. I'm going home for the day. (The only perk to self-employment).

Hmmm...

He is also extremely durable. Aside from the infamous shoulder injury, he spends a lot of time getting sacked, knocked down, and scrabling around, and he has remained remarkably healthy.

The result of Kyle Turley whiffing on his assignment. Is ANYbody more Mickey Mouse than Kyle -- I like to smoke weed and I ain\'t stoppin\' -- Turley?

I have never been more confident in a Lions K to kick a FG when needed in the last 3 or 4 minutes of a game to win.

Well, regardless of his occassional utter embarrassments, I\'ve got to remember that AB -is- holding a lot of the Saints QB records. He\'s been the QB of the highest powered offense the Saints have ever had. I\'ve got to dremember that.

I used to hate him, wanted him gone. Now, I\'ve reconsidered, I think he\'s adequate, adequate enough to win games.

I think the focus for replacement should be put on the defense rather than on Brooks. 32nd ranked just won\'t cut it.

You\'re right about that, no question about it. When the game gets down to it in panic mode - when game plans go out the window and essentially it\'s sandlot football, AB can shine.

One of these days folks are going to figure you out.

So when the game is on the line it\'s \"sandlot\" football, huh?

But that\'s just for Brooks, right?

John Elway was considered a great \"leader\" when he did it.

So was Montana.

So were many many QBs.

But, ol\' WhoDat don\'t see it that way for Brooks.

Hey, WhoDat ... Was Elway and Montana playing sandlot football when they led their teams in the 4th quarter?

Give it a rest.

John Kasay is the best kicker the Panthers have ever had.
