NFL Insider Gary Horton on drafting A-Mac

Andrew (New Orleans, LA): Gary, Does it strike you as odd that the Saints would draft Adrian McPherson because they think "he's another Aaron Brooks" ! Isn't one maddeningly inconsistent quarterback enough?

Gary Horton: A lot of people were really intrigued by McPherson during the draft. I think that most teams -- including the Saints -- put a value on him where when they selected him, it would actually be a steal. That's what happened. I don't know if you can tag him yet for being inconsistent -- although he has had some personal problems. I think it was more than inditement with the organization's unrest with Brooks for a guy that can take them to a championship title. I'll say this, to me, Aaron Brooks is one of the most puzzling players in the NFL. I look at his stats and I watch him on film and I see potential greatness. BUT, then I see ridiculous mistakes, slopiness and a general lack of concentration and I'm just not sure that he will ever be consistent enough to win on a big time basis.

I am on Insider daily. It's pretty cool cause you get the archives for the chats they do with different people. Some good stuff. Besides the fact is it Insider for all sports, not just football. I have yet to be disappointed with my choice to join.
