    Haha yeah Gannon for MVP was pretty darn sad.

    For some apparent reason I just don't find Daunte that accurate. Most of the time when he launches a 40 yd pass our WR never can just catch it and run in stride, they have to stop or jump for it. I can remember tons of time last year Daunte's accuracy was getting attrocious to the point where I had enough.....

    I'm not saying Daunte isn't accurate but that he isn't very accurate.

    I would agree that Daunte isn't anywhere near as accurate as his completion percentages may state. Moss clearing everything out for the easy short underneath passes, made it pretty darn easy for him to look accurate.

    However, I still wouldn't say Aaron Brooks is a more accurate QB. I have watched him play too much to think he is accurate. What Brooks actually is, is a streaky passer. He can look amazingly accurate for a game and then look absolutely horrible for 2 or 3 games, then look awesome again the next week. I think this is the big reason why NO struggled with him and decided to part ways.

    Good point, he should have a chance to start in the NFL, just as much as Brad.

    They could be competing somewhere.

    Yes, Brad is under contract, but what if he was part of a trade to another team for a RB???? Just a thought. I personally want him here in MN to start the season if DC can't go right away. Brad is under contract and he is obligated to be in MN.

    BTW, Brooks is not that bad of a QB. He has done well getting the ball to Stallworth and Horn. He has been on a bad attitude football team. He needs a change of pace and he might play a bit better.

    It is just one of those things, like talked about in another thread(money spent on renovating practice facility), attitude of a team makes a difference. Saints are losers and their crony owner does nothing to try and change their attitude. You can go on figuring that if you pay people a lot of money to play, that they will play with an edge, but it is not true. Little things do count. Change is a way to keep from feeling stale.

    Aaron Brooks will ave an opportunity to start somewhere next year. Sombody like Oakland or Miami will sign him. He won't want to come here where he has no shot at starting.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
