I can see Cooks beating up on alot of DB's this season. He's speedy gonzales in human form.

No doubt but Sean was getting beat off the line. This guy is all of 6'3 & is no scrub but yeah Cooks is a human missile.

Re: Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

One of my worries is the lack of the teams ability to close games out. That Lutz FG should have been a TD and th game would have been dead.

Whe i have watched the Pats or Seattle especially in the past few years if they had the lead or where level and had possesion with 5 mins on the clock you new a long 4 min plus drive was on the cards and they'd see out the game. The Saints dont play the clock well these days imo

Yeah you could see Cooks gaining inches on every step he took. Just amazing.

I just want to say; even though we lost; both sides of the ball played better than I thought they would...

Even with the loss of Breaux; I'm excited to see the rookies play...

Exactly, why don't they just trade him if they don't want to use him? As I said we have not really ran it consistently with one back late since PT left.

Re: Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

We havent been able to close games out since mid season 2013 when we lost to the patriots, only needing a first down to win.

Sorry to say, but this team is not going anywhere until some coaching changes are made. Payton just hires his friends and refuses to accept that our LB's are piss poor every season, Our D line is invisible every season and he can't handle the clock management duties at all.
