Guess the Cooks trade was the right idea

It just occurred to me -

Pats best WR Edelman is out for the year and now have Cooks to fall back on.

Saints best OT Armstead is out for most of season at least and now have Ryan R. (1st round pick) to fall back on.

Very true. Poor Cooks had just 1 catch for 8 yards last night though... "Closed mouths don't get fed" right Brandin?

Remember when Edelman posed nude for ESPN? Remember what happened to Arrietta's stats in MLB after he posed nude last year? This thing is the new Madden curse.

Edelman was his main competition. Edelman though, hardly any TD's last year and with their offense, he could be iced at any given time. I doubt he gets the yards he got last year. It was a good move for us. MT is a much better WR1. He can do it all.

It will be interesting to see if Brandin starts pouting again when he isn't the focal point every damn week.

If he does, he'll get cut right quick.

Hard to imagine him under 1000 yds even if he wont go across the middle. He can beat you deep and hell take a short post the distance too. Brady will get him the ball. It might even be scary good too. I hope not.
