Maybe we should have kept Keith Brooking around. I mean, sure, his skills have diminshed to the point that he has very little use on the field, but at least we could have preserved his reputation as a hard working, humble player with a team-first attitude. I am not sure who that was we saw yesterday wearing Brooking's number for the silver and blue. He sort of looked like Ray Lewis, well, except for the making great plays part. He only looked like Lewis AFTER the whistle...jawing, talking, jumping up and down....doing the bird dance? Really? Keith Brooking? It takes less than one season playing for the Cowboys and one of the proudest LBs in Falcons history has turned into this?
I thnk he had 2 tackles in the box score - but at least a dozen dances, celebrations and other nonsense that doesn't show up in the box score. Oh yeah, it looked like he was the one who blew the assignment when Weams was quarantined for the easiest TD you'll see in the NFL.
I understand he spent a lot of time apologizing to the Falcons after the game for his behavior - but he's always been better than that.
