Points:
1) Brooks will be a top ten qb and only not start if injured

2) A-Mac will get the #2 spot to start the season. He has the potential and probably will be good down the road. We will only answer the hype/no-hype debate if Brooks is injured. Only hype out there is that he is good enough to take Brooks' job this year.

3)Bouman Blows

4) I think Haslett does like Brooks, but I think his decision to play him while injured had more to do with stubornness and his never quit personality. I think that is one area he has matured in over the years by retaining the never quit attitude while knowing when to act correctly in certain situations. Everyone knocks our coaches, but I like Haslett. He's learning and has the mentality a coach needs for our team. Not so sure about those underneath him though.

Bouman can blow all he wants but he has the experience and better knowledge of the game. I wouldn't put my rookie 5th round draft pick as my 2nd stringer. I don't think even Aaron Rodgers will be Favre's primary backup.

Ride the pine and pay his dues. We shouldn't expect much if anything at all this year from Adrian. If he's lucky, he might get to kneel out the clock on the final play of a game this year.

Hey sure I think A-mac is going to be good... may even end up replacing Brooks one day but to say he is going to be our savior this year is simply NUTS

A-Mac might see some playing time in the preseason.....other than that, I highly doubt we'll see him on the field this year.

I think calling him a rookie 5th rounder is misleading -- most believe his personal screwups were the reason he dropped so low. I know that you are going out of your way to slam A Mac because you do not want anyone with any potential behind AB but I'll tell you this -- 5th round rookie or not - if he is better than Bouman (and I think he is) then I want him as my second round QB. If he is better than Brooks (and he may be in a few years) than I want my 5th rounder as the QB. (By the way -- what round was Brady drafted in -- AB for that matter)

Lets not forget what happened in St Louis. Kurt Warner started his first year out of the Arena league. I do think this kid should mature a little. He is probably one of the most athletic QBs to be drafted. My feeling is that we have another Delhomme situation on our hands. Well keep him for a few and trade him to a team that will have a Super Bowl Season.

BrooksMustGo,

What are you going to change your username to if or when Brooks finally goes?

I'm not trying to dog him being drafted in the 5th round because I wanted us to drafted him much earlier. I'm just saying barring some freak accident to Brooks and Bouman combined with an absolutely horrid record, I honestly don't think he'll see the field besides preseason. Trust me... I LOVE A-Mac's "potential"... but he still is raw and needs to learn the our version of the West Coast offense, a system in which normally takes quite some time to pick up.

Exactly... in a few years once he has a grasp of everything. We aren't a rebuilding franchise like the 49ers or the Texans... we don't need to throw him into the line of fire right away. That's what Brooks and Bouman are for. A-Mac is our future... not present.

If you knew me 4saintspirit or generally read my posts, you would know I could careless where anyone was drafted. I'm all for underdogs and I LOVE to see young players develop. A-Mac will be great for us down the line and I'm a supporter.
