Apparently Morgan & Toon just don't have the drive to get in there and play ball.

And Meachem has 4 (FOUR) catches with 16 (SIXTEEN) targets. Sorry, but that is a steamy pile of excrement.

I agree with Cooks taking Meachem's down field targets...RM is rocking 25% receptions per target. I could live with Cooks doing that, getting the experience to help him reach his ceiling. Meachem's ceiling? That happened in 2009.

Re: Brandin Cooks

Here's the problem with Cooks (actually a Payton problem IMO)


Brandin Cooks
Pass Thrown Behind LOS, 15 for 66 yards
Pass Thrown 1-10 yds, 10 for 71 yards
Pass Thrown 11-20 yds, 6 for 86 yards
Pass Thrown 21-30 yds, 1 for 32 yards

So even though cooks is making the plays downfield when they are there, Payton is mostly keeping him behind the LOS or at 1-10 yard routes.

Cooks has shown he can run all the routes, we need to send him downfield more often, even if it means his speed drags the safety away and leaves someone uncovered

Re: Brandin Cooks

I'm fully aware the coaches know more than every single poster on fan forums, but I can't help but think Cooks and Morgan (Joe Morgan in case you guys forgot who he is) should be getting some more deep targets than they are.

And if you draft a 2 or 3 year project at CB, shouldn't you have addressed the CB spot in free-agency with someone other than a 70 year old HOF bound has been?

Re: Brandin Cooks

Ditto. I'm done with Meachem. I believe Cooks, Morgan or Stills could've caught some of the balls Meachem has missed
this year.

Re: Brandin Cooks

Drews problems would be fixed with a better offensive line. Nuff' said.
