this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Don\'t forget smiles never hurt anybody, and you don\'t need to be a leader at the QB position. Any more?...

... I have said it before, and I will say it again...

...when some fans stop giving all the props to Brooks for everything good the team does, that will be the day that other fans will stop micro-analysing Brooks and pointing out his every flaw.....

Offensive line = Brooks to Pro Bowl

This will be a make or break year for him... there are no more excuses. All the weapons are there for him now...
I have heard this statement every year for the last 3 when it comes to Aaron Brooks.

No offense, but it\'s flat wrong. I don\'t disagree that AB needs to put up or shut up. In fact, I\'ve been saying that for years. What I mean is that this isn\'t make or break, and yes, there are ALWAYS more excuses when it comes to AB. The only thing as consistent as humidity in New Orleans the last few years have been mediocrity, inconsistency, and excuses. There WILL be more excuses this year.... at some point... for someone... most likely Brooks. I guarantee it.

You are right -- excuses are a part of the NFL. But this year - with the beefing up of the offensive line -- most excuses will start to fall on deaf ears. I think that is the main point here

AB has had decent lines in front of him before. He was behind a less than decent line last year. It didn\'t matter. He has been inconsistent regardless. AB will continue to start until someone beats him out or Haz finally has enough.

Offensive line = Brooks to Pro Bowl

For ANYone who thinks Brooks has been playing behind good offensive lines ... CLEARLY we haven\'t been watching the same games.

It just took our offensive line \"sucking\" SO BAD last year that some of you finally noticed it.

And CLEARLY Haslett and Co. are thinking the samething. Which is why they placed such a high priority on the offensive line this year.

Make no mistake ... Our offensive line sucked at pass blocking in 2003.

You guys do understand there\'s a BIG difference between \"run\" blocking and \"pass\" blocking?

Offensive tackles might be real great at pushing a defensive linemen around and opening up holes for the RB, but they might suck at pass blocking. Some of those guys (like Victor Riley) just don\'t have the foot-speed to get out fast enough and pass block.

In any event ... our offensive line appears to be much better than average this year.

Brooks was voted to the pro bowl as an alternate in 2003. It\'s not that big of a reach to think Brooks will play much better behind a great offensive line.

And as soon as some of you get off of your Brooks\' agenda, you might see the samething!!!

Kind of like the line he had in 2002?? When the Saints were one of the top offenses in the league, and despite all that, he still couldn\'t break the top 15 in QB rating, Comp %, etc???

Go look at old posts from before every offseason. EVERY year since 2001 or so it\'s been \"make or break\" for AB, Haz, and the Saints in general. Every year there are excuses.

Last year, AB made as many mistakes as the o-line did. the year before that, the line was good, and AB was selected as a pro-bowl alternate. We all know this. This is nothing new.

You base the offensive line being good in 2003 based on what?

From what I saw , they were terrible at pass blocking in 2003.

And Brooks made as many mistakes as the offensive line last year???

Hey ... we our offensive line led the NFL in penalties. Not to mention those 46-sacks they gave up. And don\'t forget about all the times Deuce got hit in the backfield.

Turley - He was horrible.

Roaf - Yea he sucked too.

Fontenot - One of the worse centers who\'ve ever played the game.

Holland - Wow what is he like 5\'2 130, he blocks like a girl.

Bentley - Who? Did we sign this guy from the XFL?

Naole - This guys isn\'t anchoring Jacksonville\'s line is he? WTF?

YES CLEARLY, WE have been in outer space.
