Palmer has to get Cook more involved in the offense

  • He's arguably the team's biggest difference maker on offense with Britt out.

    PapaTitan keeps it real.

  • Is it possible that Jared Cook has to get Jared Cook more involved in the offense. If he is as great a player as most say he is, I think that would be pretty clear to everyone watching the game including Matt Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck saw and knew what a talent Kenny Britt was; Matt Hasselbeck had no trouble whatsoever getting Kenny involved, it was pretty clear. I think Cook is a good TE, I don't think he's great. Just watching his play, running routes, coming out of his breaks, etc., I'm just not seeing anything special, except for straight line speed (for a TE). My point is, Hasselbeck is desperately looking for a playmaker to get the ball to out there (with Britt out); if there were one, we would see it, we're not seeing it.

    You make some valid points. I just remember Palmer talking about Cook when he first got the OC job. With Britt out and CJ producing nothing, I do believe Cook has the potential to be a playmaker. He can't catch the ball if it's not thrown to him. Why not try to get him involved early and see where things go from there.
