    Derrick Brooks vs. Keith Brooking

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

    You called me a homer, because I didn't think Derrick Brooks is exponentially an upgrade than Keith Brooking is at this point and time.
    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).

    Brooks all the way, and its not just homerism.

    When you have a guy who has not missed a game ever and started every game since his rookie season and does not look like slowing down porduction, how can you not pick him.

    Three ATL players, that's funny.

    All Bucs players are easy to spell: RON-DE BAR-BER, DER-RICK BROOKS, SIM-E-ON RICE, CHRIS SIMMS, MICH-AEL CLAY-TON, CAD-IL-LAC WILL-IAMS...lol Hooked on Phonics NFL style.
    3 ATL players that people can't get right yet the Buccs make it easy. their hardest name is Zemaitis.

    it's not like thurman is difficult. :roll:

    additionally, samardzija's name comes up on google as a "did you mean" on the most common misspellings. as does jurevicius's.

    90% of the people on here don't know how to spell Joe Jurevicius or Jeff Samardzija. My bad on the Thurman.

    This is just Scar being nitpicky. "IF YOU SPELL ODELL THURMAN'S NAME WRONG AGAIN, YOU WILL BE CAST OUT INTO THE DAMNATIONS OF HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!"

    Maybe if they were better players their names would be more recognizable...everyone knows how to spell Roethlisberger.

    Wow you caught that he misspelled Odell Thurman's name, that proves your correct in your argument that Keith Brooking is better than Derrick Brooks. Seriously what is the point of correcting people on such trivial matters, I'm sure not everything you type is correct.
    it's the fifth time I have seen him call him Thurmond. There is no one in the NFL with the last name Thurmond and like njx said at least get the name right. it's like when people say Brookings, Kearney or Finnerman.

    nope, i'm sick of this.

    if you can't spell a guy's name right, you're clearly not qualified to talk about him. there's a vast difference between the 1,001 people who don't know the difference between lienhardt and leinart and the people who make an occasional typo.

    the moral of the story is, if you don't even know his name, you probably shouldn't be talking about him in the first place.

    Not when we drafted Barrett Ruud as the first ILB in the 2005 draft. Remember, Ruud was ahead of Thurmond and Tatupu in terms of ranking. Some think he was the best because there were concerns with Channing Crowder's character issues.

    The kid has skill, he just hasn't been able to showcase it like the rest of the 2005 ILBs that had success as rookies. He has had to play behind Quarles who had a career year. A lot of people think he could be the starter coming out of training camp.

    I see nothing wrong in this thread, and I also see nothing wrong with a heated discussion.

    Care to explain to me how Derrick Brooks will be better next year "by far."
    Does not matter next year, because Brooks will be old. Derrick Brooks was WAY better then Brooking in his prime.
