I think Cooks is a deep threat and needs to be just that. He doesn't need to be a number one nor should we expect him to be. I don't see him as a possession WR even. We need him going for the shots that we take deep down field.
Agree.
Colston has taken a beating at times in the middle of the field and due to his size he was able to keep playing. If Cooks takes hits like that he won't be in the league for very long.

This is just a taste of what a good not great D can do to our O. On the defenseless side of the ball this is a taste of what a middle of the road O can do to them, it;s going to be a long season. NT and a scheme change might work for the D and play action with a little to lot of game management for the O(ground and pound).

If Brandon Cooks is gonna be great, he's got to beat the top CB's in the league.

Payton's been a stubborn coach from the beginning.

Wow.

I agree with him, we just look too similar to last year. It's like a continuation of the same ol' bull-@&$?! Why should we have any hope? This is a "what-have-you-done-for-me-lately-league," right???

Similar to last year? How so?

I saw speed and passion on defense and our patchwork DB's looked better than they did in any game last year.

Looking at our schedule I'd rank the 5 toughest games as

1. @ CAR
2. @ AZ
3. @ PHL
4. @ ATL
5. DAL

We lost a close game on the road against what I'd consider our 2nd toughest game on the schedule, with 25 new players on this team, 11 rookies seeing their 1st NFL action, and several of our star players missing.

This looked nothing like last year.
