Cooks looks like the real deal

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Cooks didn't look like a rookie in his first preseason game. I'm very optimistic. Not only for him but for what he can mean to the offense as a whole....

Re: Cooks looks like the real deal

Yeah it was good but I didn't see anything remotely what everyone has been reporting from camp... there has been A LOT of hype but just hasn't translated into that game.

The rams pretty much double covered him whenever he was on the field, the commentators kept repeating that the rams are "scared to death of what cooks can do with the ball in his hands"

You put our full starting offense out there, who you going to double?
If you double graham, cooks, stills and colston will work the underneath and intermediate routes and absolutely destroy the defense

Then not to mention Ingram, Khiry and PT, its going to be a fun year!

5 for 55 w/ 1 TD; not bad for your first game ever with limited snaps

Looks good all the way around. That being said - I was really waiting on that cut he made.

He only had one realistic chance to make a play and he turned it into a TD. All his other catches were in traffic or with a safety right on top of the route. But we should be encouraged by those plays too because most rookie WR's will not make those tough catches between two DBs like that.

Yep. Toon has been here what 3 years now and still can't do it.

Re: Cooks looks like the real deal

What people should realize is that his presence is probably the main factor in the Saints RBs suddenly finding so much running room. You can't put 7 or 8 in the box with Cooks out there.
