    Like I said, I'm all for giving him first team reps in practice/preseason to see how he does. But the fact remains, he's a late round pick who did literally nothing last season. Has no game experience, has not taken a meaningful snap since December over a year ago. We can't go into the season hoping he'll be a stud. We need a contingency plan. Draft somebody high, sign a FA, something. Even if Cole is a stud right away, we need a backup anyway. Get a starter and let Cole compete for the job, but don't assume Cole is the guy.

    If Cole didn't have those pick-sixes in that one game, we wouldn't be having this conversation. Remember a few years ago when everyone thought Sherels would be the next great thing since he had one good play in preseason? He's just straight up awful. Every year there's a guy like this. Jason Carter ring any bells?

    The coaches see Cole every day at practice. They evidently don't think it's worth giving him game reps.
