    Sullivan questionable, so Cooper looks to start

    The offense functioned better in the second half, and the coaching staff liked the way Cooper handled the line calls and directed blocking assignments.

    "He did a pretty nice job, held his own," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. "The most important thing for us is that the center directs a lot of the show. I feel confident with Cooper. He does a great job, he's scrappy, he's tough. He's going to fight each and every play. I'm excited about him."

    Whats really up with Sully's legs?

    I'm beginning to think that maybe he is trying to be bigger than his body will let him. If thats the case, we need to move on and hope Coop can hold the Center position down for the rest of the season at least.

    Coop is small, but is super intelligent.

    On a side note this looks like and indication that Cook has found yet another position he can't play on the OL. Apparently his play against Detroit was just a mirage.

    Coop is a good fill in. I think Cook could do the job if he is put there and not everywhere along the line. Not sure what is happening with Sully and his legs.

    Another article just posted quotes Hutch as saying the opposite.

    What I think it is, is an indication that our backup Center is finally figuring things out allowing our swingman to focus just on 3 positions instead of 4.

    An excellent post from someone who appears to understand the play of the OL.

    I'm not so sure my friend. Personally, I believe Mangold is the best C playing the game right now. He is listed at:
    Mangold, Nick 6'4" 307

    Matt Birk played the game pretty damn good back in the day and he is listed at:
    Birk, Matt 6'4" 310

    Our Centers are listed at:
    Sullivan, John 6'4" 301
    Cooper, Jon 6'2" 291
    Cook, Ryan 6'6" 328

    Sully is right there about were I expect a C to be at, Coop is a bit light, but I think the shortness kindof helps with respect to the QB and his visibility.

    Cook on the other hand, is just a bit to tall if you ask me and probably is a bit heavy when it comes to pulling, however, there is another C that I like to watch play (Koets/Giants) who is listed at 6'5" but as with the others, weighs in at 301lbs.

    Put 10 lbs on Coop and it would appear you would have an ideal size/wieght for a starting C.

    On a side note, I still wonder if Sullys issues are related to trying to carry to much weight however he was at/around 300 lbs when he was drafted if memory serves.

    Re: Sullivan questionable, so Cooper looks to start

    Was looking for a Marrdro post saying something of this sort

    "So the center IS responsible for line calls and blocking assignments? Who was that yutz babbling about the play of the center and that cats responsibilities" :P
