"However, his fortunes would change when Norv Turner took over for Richie Pettibone. Turner wanted a back that was more consistent with his runs. He was used to Emmitt Smith gaining yards every time he touched the ball. While Smith never really broke the big run he rarely lost yards and was always going forward for a gain. Brooks was a different type of back. He was in the Barry Sander's mold of lose a yard, lose four yards, gain twenty yards. Brooks's yards came in chunks--not small pieces. In a Norv Tur ner offense controlling the ball is a key, and a running back like Brooks wouldn't be effective doing that. But that's not what sealed Brooks's fate.
He made what Turner calls the "big negative play" i.e., the fumble. On several occasions during the '94 season Brooks made the "big negative play" and put his team in very precarious situations. His playing time drastically declined. He was benched in '9 4 for Ricky Ervins, and with the signing of Terry Allen in '95 Brooks's career as a Redskin was all but over. He had played in all sixteen games as a rookie carrying the ball 223 times. Over the next two seasons he would carry the ball only 102 times playing in only one game for the '95 season. He was let go during training camp in '96."

Anyone have some info on if he's still cage fighting these days?
I just did some searching on your question, because I was wondering too.

Apparently it was a one-time thing.

Not the most reliable source, but the best I could find. There were plenty of fight announcements online...but all for that same date.

Yeah I do remember that his style of running wasn't what Turner wanted. He was definitely a home run type of runner and they couldn't get him to take the 2-3 yard gains when they were there.

Re: Redskins cards on eBay

I might have to check my old cards when I get home tonight. I probably have some pretty good ones from the early 90's.

Re: Redskins cards on eBay

Well Beckett has it for 250-450. its in MINT condition. and you know how hard it is to get a Sammy Baugh Auto. Actually I have 2 of these. the other one i am keeping it is #33 of 33.. Sammy's Jersey#. and to think I had won the #1 of 33 and it got sent to Florida during the '05 Hurricane season and it got lost.. Luckily had insurance hehhee. but would have rather the card. Like I said anyone interested lemme know.
