    Honestly, we have done more with less in the past even if we don't have Cook or Britt. We will have Britt this year unless he does something to land himself in jail (which is very possible!) We will probably tag Cook and offer Marks and Velasco contracts. Marks and Velasco keep improving, so resigning them is positive. I really believe the key to this year will be getting a solid #2 power back, fixing the O line, and fixing our pass rush from the front 4 which is already much improved from 2011. That plus the Wilson signing and hopefully a healthy and productive Markelle Martin should fix the secondary. If Cook doesn't work out, then the next man up needs to step up to the plate! Let's see what Preston has to offer, he is big. Let's send Wright down field and see some of that speed that we saw at Baylor. Washington runs great routes and is getting older, let him own the slot. All of these guys are capable, we just need to be creative and keep defenses guessing.

    They should play this whenever we score a touchdown now

    Has everyone forgotten that Cook is injured and missed the last three games of the year. We don't know where he is physically and isn't it amazing that his camp hasn't mentioned his recovery at this point. Hmmmm.

    They should be forced to watch the movie so they can understand how a young Kevin Bacon and the late Chris Penn risked their lives so that kids in a small Iowa town could dance and listen to music.

    Cook and the NFLPA can show all the stats and package formations they want, but the fact is that Cook always practiced with the TEs, attended all the TE meetings, was drafted as a TE, worked out at the combine with the TEs. Besides that all the Titans have to do is show how pathetic Cook is at blocking when he puts his hand in the dirt to justify why they didn't use him in that capacity more often. Cook will not win the appeal.

    I would have no problem moving on from Cook as long as we used the money to go after one of the top FA WRs.

    matchup advantage is in physical stats ONLY. He doesn't consistantly come thru when the stats say he should.
