    If Cook can't block well enough to play inline like a real TE then he is just a big WR and our need is not at TE.

    I'm tired of people blaming our coaches or our system for why Cook didn't produce more. It's his own fault that he was not on the field more.He's too one dimensional.

    You could compare him to Hernandez of the Pats who is also not much of a blocker. So if Cook doesn't get to play with a hall of fame QB and a pro bowl WR he can't function? The teams most attractive to him are not going to be interested.

    The Saints and Pats don't need a hybrid TE/WR and the Packers don't either and can't afford him.

    For what team that would sign him will Cook get more looks and better numbers?

    If Cook is on the field for 300 pass attempts and 65% of those passes are completed and he accounts for 25% of those completions that adds up to less than 50 catches.300 X 65%= 195 x 25%=49.

    Teams are not throwing it as much now and the record breaking TE numbers from 2011 did not happen this year. The Pats for example had almost 200 fewer pass attempts than they did last season.

    So what team? Another thing about TEs is that they get a lot of catches on first and 2nd down. Cook is missing out on 15-20 catch opportunities because he can't block!

    If he is not in on those easy 7 yard catches off of play action on first or 2nd down that makes him just a slot WR competing with all our WRs for catches.

    Knew this was coming.

    He's too good for this team anyway. In all honesty.

    Needs to go somewhere where the fans aren't idiots (i.e. "he can't block" blah blah blah) and the team will use him as he should be.

    Cook will be gone. I don't know why people keep insisting on playing him at TE and complaining about his blocking. Ever since day 1 it was clear he should be split out and used to create mismatches. Sadly Tennessee still doesn't believe in the forward pass, so any creativity in that part of the game is out of the question.

    Don't trust La Canfora too much. He's trying too hard to be first with the "reports", but he has way more misses than hits on his "1st to report", than most other guys.

    Sign an old dog TE for a year. By then Thompson should develop and we can forget about Cook.

    Besides, Cook was basically a WR for us anyway.

    I'll be shocked if the Titans don't tag him.
