  • Derrick Brooks vs. Keith Brooking

    Shiver and I are having a debate as to who is better/more valuable, Keith Brooking or Derrick Brooks.

    I think Keith Brooking is a good player, but I also think Derrick Brooks is a great player and is not showing his age yet. Everyone says he is getting older and slower...

    Derrick Brooks ranked #2 in the NFL in tackles for Outside Linebackers in 2005. He was 2 combined tackles (125) behind the leader, Demorrio Williams (127).

    This is not to mention 3 sacks, 1 INT, a 2006 Pro Bowl MVP, and a partridge in a pear tree.

    Keith Brooking had a very very respectable 115 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 4 INTs.

    The question is, which one is more valuable: Brooks or Brooking (this question isn't a "dynasty" question, as to which one is more valuable over the next 8 years, but just for next season).

    Brooking easily. He is the second best OLB (behind Bulluck) and he can play every LB position. He is very important to the Falcons defense. Brooks is very important to the Bucs, but next season I would take Brooking.

    That is correct comahan

      Brooking is awesome but doesnt compare to the leadership and ability of Brooks

        I have to go with Brooks...even if I was a Falcon fan i probably would consider him the best OLB in the game...

          - 5 Straight Pro-Bowls at three different positions. (4-3 WLB, MLB and 3-4 ILB)
          - Only 30 Years old, three years younger than Brooks.
          - Had 3 more Interceptions than Brooks, and the same ammount of Sacks.


          Career Wise; Brooks.
          Here and Now; Brooking.


          Of note; this started because I felt Chris Hovan would be a bigger upgrade for the Falcons defense, than Derrick Brooks would be. In the "take 2 from your division teams" thread.

            Brooking is the unquestioned leader of the Falcons defense.

              Brooking. He was only 10 tackles behind brooks, but he picked off 5 more passes.

                yeah and you forgot to mention that Brooking was playing out of his natural WLB spot the entire year. you also completely forgot the fact that Brooking had an overall better year considering he was only 10 tackles behind Brooks but had 3 more INT's and .5 more sacks. and no one cares about pro bowl MVP. it's like bragging about company softball MVP.

                  It's stupid to think that

                  10 Tackles

                  >

                  .5 Sack
                  3 Interceptions


                  Not even considering age, which Brooking has much more left in the tank.

                    Brooks is the unquestioned leader of the Buccaneers TEAM, not just defense.

                      well, I'm sorry the Falcons have Vick who leads the entire team. You can't really hold that against Brooking. man sometimes you come off as the biggest ****** I have ever seen post here.

                        -Brooks doesn't play his age like I said
                        -Mad props to Brooking for the INTs, not going to lie

                          I would take Keith Brooking he can play a lot of positons on defense. He has a couple more years more to play then Brooks.

                            It's 3 more INTs. You subtract, not add. j/k Staubach

                              This wasn't a multiple season question. Read the freaking question (*******)
