    Re: Childress on Cook

    "are we done yet?"

    Not yet.

    I re-read the article.
    Childress praised Cook.
    But he didn't praise him as a center.

    Childress praised Cook's ability to play effectively at OT and C.
    He also provided some insight into his strengths, which Del Rio mentioned several times, and some weaknesses which he needs to work on.


    I agree Cook will be a good, if not great, OL.
    But I am not sure he will be a great Center.
    My points are based on pro scout criticisms, not provided in the article, that Cook is a bit too tall to play center, due to leverage issues.

    There is no disagreement between Del Rio and I over the major issue that Cook will be a great OL.
    There is a difference of opinion as to his POTENTIAL to be a great Center.

    Birk is likely to be around for a few more years.
    So, due to OL coaches' tendency to not fix things that ain't broken, and their bias against tall centers, Cook won't likely get an opportunity to play center as a starter.

    I think Cook will thrive at RT, and the Vikings will abandon the idea of replacing Birk with Cook in 4-5 years, opting to draft a young C in a few years, instead of moving a very good RT inside.

    OK, I'm done now.

    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Among other things.


    I find it funny that sometimes what is on here mirrors my issues at work.....

    Today we are doing integration testing of some networks that will be going over to the sandbox and guess what they brought with them.
    VIRUSES
    .

    Take a look at the thread "Computer Help".
    Ironic isn't it
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    However I were wondering why people insist to defend Del as he is clearly capable of doing himself.

    When people like pp that is a good poster himself takes up a discussion like this, I enjoy the read.

    We all know Del is knowledgeable about football, but that doesn't mean that he shouldn't be challenged in his views.
    Did you just say that Del is not the master poster of PP.O?!?!

    I agree, I don't think that Del needs to be defended, he can take care of himself. He knows a lot about football and has completely kicked my butt on occasions, but as a result of it I learned more about football. I hate it when people just bow to certain people because they have more posts....big deal, challenge if you feel you are right, and argue it, but just don't be to stupid that you can't learn from it.

    So the point: Everyone should challenge Del
    Just like I said. We should kick Del's ass on a consistent basis.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I thought that was policy......see Del's post....ignore what is said.....make shit up....kick Del's ass
    If you promise to be smarter, I will promise to be nicer.

    My posts are worth 6 of yours.

    I didn't tell him to bow because it was Del. I told him to bow because I felt Del was obviously right: Height means poo in this situation.

    Had Plexing and Del switched stances, I would have told Del to bow to his sensei.
    So in summary: Bow to your Sensei, not whoever haws more posts.
