none of those things matter when 80% of this board talks about how bad AB is either, they're simply excuses. I find it humorous it suddenly matters when the topic is Jake Delhomme, or any QB not named Brooks.

OK fine. Good point. I'll concede. None of those things matter at all. Delhomme had better numbers in every category last season. Delhomme is the better QB. Ta-da. I like the way you're thinking Danno - keep that up.

And the curious few are supposed to glean exactly what from all of these figures?
More than likely why Brooks name ended up on a list ???

QB Aaron Brooks / Saints
A base salary of $5.5 million isn’t ridiculous for a quarterback, but Brooks' development seems to have plateaued or, in the eyes of some, completely regressed. Brooks has been enigmatic at best over the last 25 games. Also, WR Jerome Pathon ($2.5 million base) won’t be back in New Orleans at that price.

I suppose we and others are gleaning up the thought of is Brooks worth the cap hit . Some think not .....

I knew that comment was going to get it going again. I fully expected Billy, uh...I mean The Gambler, to respond the way he did. Hilarious!

Yet, when you look at a game like the Carolina game, AB outplayed Delhomme.

Nevermind the fact that Jake attempted 50 passes to AB's 24.
Nevermind the fact that Jake racked up 307 yards, 2 TDs, and 0 INTs. (AB - 216, 1, 0).
Nevermind the fact that Deuce ran for 140 yards, Goings rushed for 46 (only 13 carries).
Nevermind that the Saints defense allowed fewer yards and points.
Nevermind that the Saints D had 5 sacks in the game (Brooks was sacked 3 times).
Nevermind that the Saints D held the Panthers to 10 points until the closing moments of the 4th quarter.
Nevermind that the Saints had 3 takeaways.

Nope, none of those things matter when you're talking about how well AB played - only when you're talking about how poorly - then those are all perfectly good excuses.
I agree, but those excuses shouldn't be made for other quarterbacks when comparing them to AB. Jake and AB are both decent QB's. I don't really favor one over the other. IMO if AB plays well, he deserves his props. When he plays bad, he deserves his critizism. Same thing for every QB in the NFL.

Assuming Jake is a better QB, and honestly I don't think he is.........it really is of no benefit to the Saints if he IS better, other than the occasional "I told you so" or "we kept the wrong guy" from bitter fans.

I don't have anything against Jake, personally..........but dear Lord, I honestly think some of you guys would rather see Carolina beat us twice a year, just so you can blast the Saints' personnel decisions at QB. Some of you, deep down, would rather Jake have a 300+ yard game, with 2 or 3 TDs, and see Aaron throw 2 INTs and have 2 fumbles.....just so you can say SEEE??? SEE??? SEE WHAT I MEAN? Maybe those guys aren't necessarily ROOTING for Carolina.....but if the end result favors Carolina, then I doubt they'll cry in their beer too much. After all...JAKE WILL HAVE WON!!!!

If you guys want ANY chance of a successful season this year.........you'd better damn well pray every night that Aaron Brooks takes every snap this year. ADRIAN MCPHEARSON IS NOT THE ANSWER.........at least not this year. And quite frankly, I really don't feel like watching him go through rookie growing pains when we have a PERFECTLY CAPABLE QB at the helm.

Saints 31, Carolina 17...........in Game 1. Look for Brooks to have a solid outing.

hmm, so just cause someone is your qb, you have to like and support them, no matter how much they f%^k up? at the worst possible times? don't think so. yankee fans boo a dynasty team when they aren't playing well, why should we cut fumbles any slack? i could care less if he Gets hUrt. I don't think we are going very far with hiM anyway. he is not indispensiBle, like peOple wanna make it seem. We will run the Ball more anyway, so we Can get it done should he go down. If not, it's not like we are losing a pro bowl qb or something.

i also don't think anyone wants carolina to ever Beat the saInts in any game, it just so happens they usuaLLY do, and jake has been the qb. we already knew the fo sCrewed up the wAy he Rolled against ne in the suPerbowl, wE doN'T nEed caRolina beating us any more to show that. that argument is moot.

Your totally wrong , Sorry but you are .

We are doing our part as fans to help Brooks be all he can be by comparing him to Delhomme ......

Can't help it Brooks is an unmotivated slouch , who needs inspiration to win a game in December .

Saints hope Brooks keeps “chip on shoulder�

Aaron Brooks finished the season very strong – both on and off the field. His emotions, which were aroused by constant comparisons to his former backup Jake Delhomme and his successful cousin Michael Vick – were on public display after a final four-game win streak and a very emotional final win over Delhomme and the Panthers.

I didn't get the BC part. Then again, I'm not a smart man.
