Brandin Cooks

We seem to use him less and less each week. Why do we take shots with Meacham when we have a stud speedster with Cooks? Mecham hasn`t caught a single deep ball this year I think and even had some crucial drops.

We only seem to use Cooks for Slants and short outlet passes...

Re: Brandin Cooks

Arguably the fastest receiver in the league and all we use him for is screens or slants

Throw a couple down field for him! Not many people will run step for step with Cooks.

Re: Brandin Cooks

I would like to see them just devise a play where they hit Cooks in stride
That alone should spring him

Re: Brandin Cooks

The judgement of our coaching staff is nearly treasonous.

Re: Brandin Cooks

If Brees can't hit Meachem what makes you think he'll hit Cooks?

He overthrew meachem vs Detroit, cooks is way faster than meachem
Plus he hit Kenny in stride for the TD aswell.

So it's Meachem's fault Brees overthrew him? Several times this year.

Nope Brees is off his game, but meachem is a waste of money even at league minimum
He doesn't even fight for the ball in the air anymore and he's lost his speed, which means we are paying him to be a skinny Offensive lineman

surely preseason "Hall of Famer" Nick toon can't be worse.

Re: Brandin Cooks

Back on topic to Cooks.

Brandin Cooks Stats - New Orleans Saints - ESPN

5+ catches a game
7+ targets a game

I also wish he were more of the game plan. I thought he was going to be a breakout playmaker as a rookie. One thing seems for sure that you will never be a rookie of the year in a Payton offense.
