    See I knew I wasnt the only one and my habit carried over from my Grandmother.

    I've been feeling pretty insecure about mine since all this started, I am looking at upgrading to this bad boy model from Kitchenaid

    Our base set should be Britt and Cook split out wide separate from each other, Stevens as the inline TE, and Johnson and Johnson in the back field. It is a power running set with 2 big fast targets on the outside. If the other team drops the safety into the box to stop the run then you go to the single covered WR.

    Our use of Cook has always pissed me off. He should never have his hand in the dirt blocking. He is a major receiving threat and should be used that way.

    I certainly don't want to trade him, but if we did I would hope we would at least get our 2nd rnder back along with another later rnd draft pick.

    I'm hoping Cook is just trying to gain leverage when it comes time for a new deal. That's what I'm hoping this is all about. I'm hoping it doesn't have to do with him not being happy hear.

    Well, I would assume so. At least Gronkowski would probably play more for us since he can actually block a little. The major downside for him is that he probably would not be a big enough celebrity to get his picture taken with a half naked C-list porn star.

    LOL... I do think Taylor can be an impact player. But he's so raw right now. Stevens & Thompson would be one of the best blocking duos in the NFL.

    I've never sipped any of Fisher's juices, WTF are you on?

    Jared Cook has proven time and time again that he's not reliable or a full-time player. He couldn't be trusted early on, hell he still runs the wrong way.

    I like what you're saying, but this is the complete opposite of what Chris Palmer wants to do. He wants to spread things out which in his mind opened things up and always give you an open guy. And the fact that both our QB's completion% is up from last year suggests he's on to something.

    Actually he's proven pretty much the exact opposite.

    But again- what you're saying is regurgitated nonsense from Jeff Fisher's lips. The same guy that tried to keep him on the bench behind Alge Crumpler.

    The same guy that tried to keep Kenny Britt on the bench behind Justin Gage.

    Yep.

    LOL okay.

    Hasselbeck doesn't trust Cook and I don't blame him, it's hard to trust someone who's running his own stuff.

    Keep up this conspiracy theory though, its almost entertaining.

    thats a WR's job.

    Dont get me wrong, I completely get what you are saying, but you can already tell with Cooks whining the past few weeks he is going to want some major $$ to stay here and honestly, as much as I really want to sign Cook, a TE that cant block is nothing more than a WR.
