He was a terrible QB for us mostly.




#'s as a Saint

82 games started
38-44 overall record
1,563 completions
2,771 attempts
56.4% completion rate
19,156 yards passing
120 passing touchdowns
84 interceptions
209 sacks
340 rushing attempts
1,410 yards rushing
13 rushing touchdowns
1 reception (which he threw to himself)


In Saints history, he's 3rd in completions, attempts, and yards.
Brooks is 2nd in touchdown passes.
And he has 13 rushing TDs, second among QBs to Archie's 18. (2 more rushing TDs than Mark Ingram)

Good post.

People forget how much of an asset Brooks was on a bad team during a troubled time for the franchise. Some may argue it's more of a testimony to how bad the Saints are historically than how good of a QB Brooks is, which may be true, but we are the Saints and he's one of the best.

He deserves to be there.

Aaron Brooks and Hall of Fame should never be used in the same sentence. I'll never forget seeing his stupid grin after throwing interceptions. He thought it was the funniest damn thing.

The only way he should get into any HOF is if he pays full price for a ticket.

That is dumb....there are 3 qbs in the Saints HOF....Brooks was better statistically than all of them...and he won a playoff game which they didn't do.

If somebody didn't F up in Miami Brooks may well still be the best QB in Saints history.

He did those things, or so i've heard. Never actually watched him play


If any fan was paying attention, Blake and Brooks benefited greatly from having McCarthy as OC. You know, the guy that makes QBs play well

This is the stupidest thing I ever heard. What do you idiots want him to do? Throw his helmet down and kick the gatorade table down? I suppose you have never smiled out of frustration when you did something stupid.

But let me guess--When Bobby Hebert wagged his index player at every WR who dropped one of his passes EVERY TIME they got back in the huddle, he was a "fiery competitor." Nothing was EVER Bobby Hebert's fault.

Agreed, I never understood the stupid fan reaction created by Aaron Brooks smile. Some people just process things different ways. If tiger woods slams a club and curses after a bad shot people crucify him. I just think people are just looking for shite to gripe about.

I sincerely hope people don't boo him when he's introduced at the Dome.

You'd have to be a real a-hole to do so.

I'm sure some will.

re: Aaron Brooks & John Carney to be inducted in the Saints HOF
I am glad Brooks is getting this honor.

I know Brooks is looked back as a tale of two quarterbacks, pre contract Brooks and post contract Brooks.

I remember the good more than the bad, and I don't think his bad should over shadow the spark he put into this franchise.

Brooks came off the bench to lead us to that spark of success in 2000, he wasn't supposed to be the guy to bring us our first playoff victory, but he was, and he has a place on my wall for it.

If that happened, I love for Drew Brees to get on the PA system and call out any "fan" that boo'd a Saints HOF player.

If you don't like Brooks or don't think he should be in the HOF, just keep your damn mouth shut. But unfortunately, some folks can't control their inner asseholisty.
