This is why we needed to get rid of him. We needed defense more.

Something you will never seen in New Orleans...

Seriously? It's on Drew Brees because Cooks dropped passes? If that's the case with Ginn catching balls from Brees then we're screwed.....

Cooks was limited in his repertoire and Payton had bigger visions for him in the game plan when we traded up in the first round to get him. He was not a good return man and wasn't very elusive. But he was fast and when Drew dropped the ball in for Cooks at full speed it was a thing of beauty. Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem were fast too.....Drew made them look good. So did Curtis Johnson the receivers coach. Who incidentally is back coaching our receivers both young and old with his impressive coaching techniques and style.

My point is Drew made those fast receivers look good not the other way around. He does it consistently and elevates the team around him in almost every game he's played as a Saint.

He's human and makes mistakes. Everyone does. Even I do. So do you. You just have to learn from your mistakes and he's a student of the game. He is one of the best prepared men in the game and keeps himself in peak physical condition to perform at his maximum every game.

I don't understand how you evaluate this team. It's obvious that you love them but get a big screen color TV so you can see what's going on.

Will(Insert Team Name Here)81 and facts have always appeared to be mutually exclusive.

Deep threat is someone who can catch a long pass, not someone who can catch and keep going. Thomas wasn't the one hauling in 98 and 80 yard TDs last year.


Still blaming Cooks for a game that the offense has had a history of losing and struggling against that particular defense is nothing but an excuse to hate someone IMO.
Check the actual stats, dude. Their YAC and YPC were very close. You try as hard as you can to try to act like you know what you are talking about. Adopt a new team. I have heard the Raiders are up and coming! Get you an early seat on that bandwagon. But a warning. They also have fans that know what they are talking about.
