Brooks should benefit as Saints simplify things

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Its Brooks' job to lose. Brooks gets replaced if he gets hurt. If A-MAc starts that isn't a good thing at all. He is not even close to being ready to even line up behind center. He has a major ...

RE: Brooks should benefit as Saints simplify things

Its Brooks' job to lose. Brooks gets replaced if he gets hurt. If A-MAc starts that isn't a good thing at all. He is not even close to being ready to even line up behind center. He has a major learning curve to over come. Brooks will not slip... Brooks will be his self or better.

RE: Brooks should benefit as Saints simplify things

Agreed. I don't know if brooks will "break-out" this season with 30 TD's but he will not get any worse. I expect fewer fumbles and interceptions and possibly better completion percentage.

He could get 30 TD's though:
Horn 12
Stallworth hopefully 10
TE's 4
That leaves 4 TD's which can be more to Horn or whoever shows up at wr #3 should get 4

Here's to optimism

I think you can count on at least 4 or 5 WR's getting at least one TD, because if you just throw to two WR's, than they will just watch 2 WR's. And Boo, Ernie, Deuce, and other RB's and TE's getting 5 at least, so the only ? is how many Stallworth will catch. I know A-Mac isn't polished to NFL standards, but didn't he lead the AFL in TD's last year? I know there is a difference between AFL and NFL, but he has had expierence playing with older and better guys, and he responded well to it. I just hope whoever starts at QB will be able to make sure we win.

Agreed, plus if/when he gets his shot, he should be good in the red zone, a very good quality.

So, every team we played knew exactly what plays we were gonna run, and now we're gonna make it MORE simple?
Yea, that sounds like a winner.
Sorry dude, just being a realist.

Dude, are you crazy? We could send other teams our playbook and it wouldn't matter. Our players are amongst the most talented in the league, and THIS year they REALLY will all play up to potential!! Our coaches made all the right moves this offseason. This year's changes really will work. You're just a miserable person if you question the total domination that the Saints will have this season. Geaux Saints!!
