Default 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).
