SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Weather displaced the New Orleans Saints again Thursday, and it's getting on the nerves of quarterback Aaron Brooks.

Freezing temperatures caused the Saints to move a morning walkthrough from a downtown parking lot back to the Alamodome, where the team was forced out earlier this week so the stadium could prepare for the NCAA women's volleyball tournament.

Following the walkthrough - held on the Alamodome's bare concrete floor and staged near a volleyball court - the Saints returned to the high school baseball field where their newest locker rooms are located.

It was just the latest disruption for the Saints, who haven't had a place to call their own since Hurricane Katrina uprooted them from New Orleans in late August.

"Weird," Brooks said after finishing dressing at his locker behind the dugout on the third-base side. He expressed frustration at the number of moves.

"We move one more time and I'm quitting," he said.

No other moves of the practice facility are planned.

The Saints (3-9), already mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, have four weeks remaining on their schedule. New Orleans plays at the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.

I think the Aints are planning to move and leave no forwarding address for Brooks. Doubt he's there next year.

The Saints will be taking QB with their first pick.

Based on those comments and the comments I heard Aaron Brooks make about his coach, owner and the NFL..... I don't see him lasting very long with that team and wouldn't be surprised if he becomes the next NFL problem child.


PS is it me or does Aaron Brooks look like Martin Lawrence?

Funny you say that, because last year I used to go to Hornets games all the time and once I sat courtside and I thought I saw Martin Lawrence but it was just Aaron Brooks. He is a pretty tall guy.

Doesn't he have a cousin or somebody that plays in the NFL too?

He does look like Martin Lawrence.

I'll cut the guy a break. He's had a really hard year with the hurricane and all that mess. It must be very hard for all those Saints players. I feel very sorry for them.

I believe Michael Vick is his cousin.

well i think this all could have been avoided if the commish would have stepped in and told benson to pick one spot for the remander of the season...he shouldn't have told benson he had to stay close to new orleans...baton rouge isn't a suitable place for them because there isn't a training facility there they can use...he should have let them stay in san antonio for this year and until they can fix the superdome...that way new orleans is able to keep their team...and the saints have a base of operations...something they don't have now...as for brooks he has never been a top tier QB in the league even though he has the talent to be...they need to get rid of him...i see them pursuing cutler the kid from vandy
