    I'm not defending Palmer but Cook is his weakest blocker and it seems the Titans do much better running the ball with Stevens or Thompson (or both) in the game.

    I've also wondered how much Palmer is wanting to keep Cook fresh since he's usually going more downfield on his routes than Stevens/Thompson.

    Munchak had no idea about a Cook trade request and was asking reports if it was Cook asking or if it was his agent. Our coach doesn't even know these things. :bs:

    he was pretending to act clueless. Usually does it on the sidelines too, just a rope a dope strategy

    I'll admit that I was wrong about Cook his first few years. Fisher and Co. stifled him and benched him, and he has always had the ability, and it took us.. what, 3 or 4 years to realize it???

    Nor should he. Agents deal with the GM in negotiating contracts.

    This thing is no more than a designed "leak" because, most likely, the Titans front office is not negotiating for a long-term deal and they see his value dropping the more he's off the field. Remember, he's been out quite a bit with the shoulder which has limited him as well.

    If the Titans intend on keeping him, they need to play him a lot more than they are now. If they don't, then get something for him.

    That Munchak reply was just coaches speak. You'll recognize it too after hearing Jeff Fisher talk for years. That's all that ever came out of his mouth. We could never get a straight answer about anything ("He had a good week of practice" sound familiar?).

    Is it me, or on the sidelines, does it look like Munch is always trying to fart silently? He makes that face where he shows his teeth like "Ehhhh that was bad."

    More like it took Cookie 3 years to figure things out.
