I think I heard the best analysis of Brooks just now ...

Brooks is awesome when he doesn't have to worry about turning around and defending a runner from behind at full speed. That is his biggest weakness. We see it when teams counter. It happened against Honduras.

When Adams is on the pitch, his uncanny ability to put pressure on the ball in the mid field helps Brooks immensely. They work great as a tandem. They bring out the best in each other. Acosta, Yueill, Lledget ... they can't do that.
