    Well unless they have Cook running a 5 yard route on 3rd and 6 then he probably won't see many passes from ol' Hasselbeck

    MH played as bad overall in that game as he ever has since coming here. He played like a damn rookie and stared down receivers. Forced the ball and missed open targets like Cook.

    Thanks to Palmer for at least telling it like it is. Wake up Matt!

    That was certainly the case and he only targeted Stevens when he was outside the hash marks.

    He will see it............ see it flying 5 feet over his head of Rusty is the one throwing the ball.

    Theres only like 7 good games in there, Hass doesn't utilize him.

    If RollTide high-fived a post, it must be good stuff.

    Here is what is really mind boggling. With Cook and Stevens we have a pretty darn solid pair of TEs. Yet we don't utilize them like we should. Other teams kill us every game with their TEs. Basically just about every defense is going to have a tough time dealing with TEs in the seam and Cook has enough speed to come across the field and out run LBs. Since we aren't running the ball we should be using these guys all the time.
