5 Reasons Why Saints WR Brandin Cooks is the “Real Deal”

“Sean (Payton) is one of the brightest minds in the NFL today and he knows he will not get back to the Super Bowl without a power rushing attack,” said an NFC defensive coordinator. “He will put a lot of emphasis on a power rushing attack in 2014, which means more of Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram in the lineup. Teams also didn’t have much fear of the Saints wide receivers going deep on them. Payton will bring in a “quick strike” wide receiver to get those safeties off the line of scrimmage. I think they follow the blueprint of what the Denver Broncos did in getting Peyton Manning a large array of aerial weapons. I believe they’ll change up their style a bit to aid Brees, but a steady dose of power football would really enhance the Saints in 2014. The philosophy of all these long drives sort of ends by the Saints because now, if they can acquire that big play end, they can strike quickly offensively and have confidence in a talented defense that will get them some three and outs. That part has never been there in New Orleans under Payton. It is now.” - NFL Analyst Mike Detillier, February 2, 2014;

The words of this defensive coordinator are EXACTLY what Ive been posting for months now. That our inability to run the ball was not the lines or Ingrams fault but of the WRs inability to get open.

Stills and Moore were the only guys who could somehow get seperation at will,
and they disappeared mid-season. In the playoffs we got jammed at the line
and that just killed the timing. Adjustments will be made and pieces have already
been put in place to counter. A strong running game will go a long way in helping Drew Brees' longevity.

I wish everyone would quit comparing him to Sproles and connecting the two. Different players. Different positions. Different roles. Sproles won't be missied out of the backfield. Cooks brings something to the WR corps that was severely lacking.

I don't think he's missed a catch.
