Brooks to get booted?
Not saying anything myself, just thought fans would like the read:


We've been aksing league insiders for all of the offseason whether the Saints will be marching out quarterback Aaron Brooks, whose release would result in a net cap gain for Nawlans, given his 2005 salary.

And with the team's selection of former FSU quarterback Adrian McPherson, our guess is that the Saints will give McPherson every chance to show that he can become the quarterback that Brooks never became.

Brooks has been inconsistent at best, mediocre at worst since emerging as "the guy" with the Saints during the 2000 season. After winning a camp battle with Jeff Blake in 2001, Brooks held out for a new deal in 2002 -- and in the three seasons since he hasn't exactly earned all of those dollars that had to be pried out of owner Tom Benson's fingers.

So if McPherson, Florida's first and only "Mr. Football" and "Mr. Basketball" and an emerging star who got run out of Tallahassee in the wake of gambling allegations, can show the Saints a little somethin'-somethin' before September 1, we wouldn't be surprised to see Brooks' name in the final transaction report before opening day, when his entire 2005 salary will otherwise become guaranteed.

I would like to see AMac at least get a shot at becoming this franchise\'s new quarterback. However, I think with our new line, the running game should be vastly improved, especially if Deuce stays healthy. As a result, I think this will take some pressure off of Brooks because he won\'t have to throw the ball 60 times a game. I would love to see AB have a great season, but who knows with this guy?

You never know about NFL QBs.

They always show so much promise coming out of college (Ryan Leaf)

Or sitting on the bench. (Eli Manning)

But once they get thrown into the fire things don\'t look nearly as promising.

Is McPhearson the next great QB? Sure he is!

That is ... until he proves otherwise....

At least now if Ab goes down we dont have to worry about Bouman coming in the game.

Interesting, but pro football talk is usually about speculation. And if McPherson is the QB opening day, and Brooks is released, traded, whatever, don;t we go from Brooks and Bouman to McPherson and Bouman?

LOL, I seriously doubt that Brooks will be going anywhere in the next two years. It\'s like Venturi, he\'s Mr. Benson\'s best buddy.

Billy and I have been agreeing far too often. It\'s really starting to worry me.

How about we at least see McPherson in uniform before we declare him the starter this season, huh? :)

Sporting news on McPherson .

Lacks ideal lower - body strength . Must improve technique ; relies too heavily on arm strength . Can get impatient in the pocket . Questions linger about his intelligence and ability to pick up schemes quickly . Character is a concern after a gambling scandal in college .

What we have here is Brooks jr.

Another sad attempt by the Hassteroid regime to provide no depth at the quarterback position to challenge Brooks .

Art Schliester in the making ..... ;)

Whodat said it all....lets see him in uniform first. I just really hope the staff allows a open competition in camp this year. It could be win win as competition usually brings out the best in both. Only one will win out though.
