On a side note, Malcolm Jenkins just murdered Brandin Cooks.

Oh and despite my dislike for the Patriots and not being exactly crazy about the Philly Fans I was definitely pulling for Jenkins tonight.

Brutal hit .. legal but brutal. Cooks had bad field awareness & left himself exposed. Take a page out of Issac Bruce/Torry Holt route tree... know when to go down.

Hope he is ok.

I wonder if Payton gets suspended for Jenkins' hit on Cooks. Clearly it stemmed from Bountygate.

I'll take Ramczyk over Cooks any day. Ramczyk is a lunch pail kind of guy who works hard and gets the job done. Thomas made Cooks expendable.

Cook's field awareness is one of the reasons we traded him. He's not a bad player, but he's also not a great runner after the catch. It nearly got him killed.
