Funny thing about Blake-Brooks season

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was just looking over the stats for that season, did anyone know Blake completed 60.9% of his passes before he got hurt, and when AB came in, he only completed 58% with the same receivers, same line, same defense, ...

Funny thing about Blake-Brooks season

I was just looking over the stats for that season, did anyone know Blake completed 60.9% of his passes before he got hurt, and when AB came in, he only completed 58% with the same receivers, same line, same defense, same guy selling popcorn, same roof on the superdome, same crappy big screens, and whatever other excuse there is for him not ever completing 60% of his passes? I thought that was pretty interesting. Two QBs, same season, same team. One was able to exceed 60% on his passes, the other wasn't. And the trend has followed for AB ever since, except he picks up more excuses from fans as the years go on.

I sure would like to know what Aaron Brooks did to you?
Because the way I see you down the man...it has to be personal.

# of games played for Aaron up to the end of 2004, 72. Seasons completing 60% of his passes, ZERO. But hey, he just picked up another excuse.

But you weren't alking about since, you were talking about that season and how all things were equal. Yet, you conveniently left out experience and now you just want to call it another excuse. How many 60% 16 game seasons has Blake had since?

You beat me to it, but 'ol crawdad wont' have it. You can't help someone until they're ready for it.

AMEN! Gonna bash folks like me for rooting against Jake Delhomme (this just in, he's the QB for our division rival) and do everything he can to discredit the QB of his "so called" favorite team. It's amazing how some people think huh?

And the trend has followed for AB ever since,

Guess you missed that huh Scotty? I related it to the fact he started that way, and is still that way. Oops.

Yup. That ONE pass a game he needed for 60% really hurt the team. It really hurt our defense too...that ONE frappin' pass completion. Could it have been one of Aarron's poor throws. Sure. It could have also been one of our WR drops too, or not running the right route, or the line failing to block, or play calling, or a WR falling down or running into an official (that cost Joe a drop and a TD as I recall...cost Brooks too). Yeah, any number of things could have caused that ONE pass to fall to the turf, but lets be silly and put all the blame on the QB. We can't piss off as many people unless we blame the QB exclusively.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Funny thing about Blake-Brooks season

Not an oops on my part, bro. Guess you left out the expereince factor on purpose in some assinine attempt to make yet another AB bashing thread. Anyway, Blake didn't reach the 60% mark in a season until he had over 75 games played. Maybe this is Brooks' year.

Why don't you just admit that your using skewed logic in order to further bash AB and get it over with. This thread is a perfect example. You wanted to say that all things were similar in '00, but you left out quite possibly the most important factor. You weren't talking about since when you were referring to what went on in that season.

Shouldn't we expect that AB would have a lesser % than Blake in '00 given the disparity in their experience? Why is that an excuse and not just a fact?
