Why doesn't Deuce score more TDs? It seems for all the yards he gains, Deuce just doesn't help this offense when it comes to scoring. And that's a pretty important STAT !!

Must be because he doesn\'t smile when he screws up. He mopes and pouts and quits.
Maybe thats why he\'s so popular with Saint\'s fans. He\'s a natural born pessimist! :poke:

Maybe because Brooks usually fumbles the goal line snap.

probally because we have other options in the red zone. at least two of the other guys you names dont or didnt have much. the only person preist has been competing with is gonzalez. tomlinson before last year was the only option. besides we have been down in so many games by so many points do we really ever have the option of doing much else besides throwing.

Clearly it\'s the line\'s fault.

9-posts? Get one more under your belt and we\'ll talk ... ;)

Just kidding with you, of course.

There\'s a Brooks\' bashing party. See WhoDat and saintwhodi and they\'ll get you an offical T-shirt. :P

Are the negative statements about Brooks FACTS or FICTION? They are FACTS. Call it bashing if you want. So you are bashing Deuce then, right? So we can label you as an official Deuce basher. See how many people jump on that train as opposed to the AB FACTS train.

Welcome kojak. Never mind Gumbo. Sometimes his AB shades clouds his judgment of most things rational. ;)
