He wasn't likely to make the final 53 anyway. This just makes cutting him an easier decision.

Cut him because he sucks, but not because he got arrested.... Otherwise Jacoby Jones would have received his walking papers for his arrest.

Taylor hasn't proven he can play FB. Or block from the RB spot, for that matter. I think Rick Smith keeps an eye on the waiver wire for a backup FB.

Exactly, not saying the pot was not his, but we do not know what the excuse for that is.. So just because it was in the car does not make him a stoner.
Cut him because he's not good enough to make the team...

LOL, I don't think his life is in shambles. It was just two ounces of pot, and he didn't have registration in Texas. He's made over three million dollars in his NFL career, I think he'll be just fine. He'll hook on somewhere else once the Texans cut him - which they were going to do anyway.

wasn't it Taylor that let the blitzing LB have his way with Sage in the Denver game? if so, that doesn't give me a very warm feeling about his blocking and missed assignments.

Let's put the drugs aside for a moment. How hard is to maintain a valid driver's license and properly registered vehicle. Most of us make a fraction of what this guy makes and we do it. Your a just begging to be pulled over, not smart at all, especially with that much pot in your posession....geez. Probably thought he was above the law or something, I just don't get the mentality. Handle your freaking business, it's not that hard.

As far as the drugs, I think, not sure that large of an amount is a felony and they can nail him with intent to distribute, and if it is not his again he reveals his intelligence by allowing it in his vehicle.

Someone has to take Rickey's place. Williams is looking pretty good. Kind of makes you wonder what could have been if he turned down the ganja and Ditka didn't try to make him 80% of an offense.

2 ounces makes him more than a stoner i think. (if it's his).

The Chronicle said it was 2 GRAMS, not OUNCES. Either way, though, it's a Class B Misdemeanor. It's the same as a first-offense DUI. Not reason enough alone to be cut, but coupled with poor performance on the field - and some horrific drops last season - I'd say congrats, Mr. Taylor, and welcome to your new position.

He wasn't doing much at the other position anyways, but after seeing him let Sage get drilled, I wouldn't be comfortable letting him play FB either.

I remember a couple of times when we played against Denver where he completely whiffed on blocking LBs that shot the gap and tackled our RB for a loss.......he never even got a hat on anybody, just them the run right by him.

It's plays like that, that make me glad we have Vonta Leach.....he's a fullback that likes contact.

I would say Leach is a FB and Cook is more of a HB.
Leach also missed a few blocks in his time (and that's supposed to be more of his role).

As far as fumble is concern, Cook had two in his career out of 95 touches.

Leach fumbled twice in 38 touches (both of them from last year).

Leach is a excellent blocker and a hellavu lot better football player then Cook. So people tend to disregard those two fumbles. Beside, I don't think those fumbles were in crunch time and didn't cost us games like Cook fumbles did.

Ummmmm. Not to pick on you 76, but football 101:

Question:
What is the difference between a halfback and a fullback in football?

Answer:
The half-back is the primary rusher on an offense, and had a main job of gaining yardage by running the ball, or running a route and making receptions. Half-backs tend to be small (5'8"-5'10") and agile. The fullback typically runs much less than the halfback, and primarily blocks for the halfback and protects for the quarterback. Some fullbacks also catch passes well. Fullbacks tend to be around 6'0", and are bulky and powerful.

HOUSTON (AP) Houston Texans fullback Jameel Cook was arrested for multiple charges, including marijuana possession, authorities said Thursday.
A sheriff's deputy stopped Cook at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday because his 2007 Mercedes sedan had no front license plate or registration sticker, sheriff's department spokeswoman Terriann Carlson said. He's free on a $500 bond after authorities said he had about two grams of marijuana, no valid Texas driver's license and no proof of liability insurance.

The old definition doesn't work in the WCO.

We utilize Leach more in the traditional sense of a lead blocker.

We utilize Cook more as a hybrid between a tailback, a sometime-blocker, and a receiver out of the backfield. What I want to say!

Cook only had 8 carries last season (and he got 5 of those carries in the Indy game after Green went down, because outside of Dayne we were incredibly thin...he was forced to do spot RB duty) Cook only had 3 carries the year before when he was labeled the starter.

In his two year carear with Houston Cook only has 26 receptions........Vonta Leach had 25 just last season alone.

I don't get where Cook is this hybrid FB in Kubiak's offense, infact even with the Bucs he wasn't a "hybrid" fullback. Just because he isn't the blocker that Leach is, that doesn't mean he's a hybrid FB.

IMO he's just a crappy FB that's light in the britches who's fixing to find himself off this team. I'll take "the man without a neck" over him any sunday

Haha, TB, my bad, I mean a hybrid H-Back type, not Half-Back.

Car_Bombed, Cook only got 6 starts in 06 (3 rushing attempts, 18 catches - 21 touches)
No start in 07 (8 R/A, 8 Recpt - 16 touches)

Leach had 4 starts in 06 (Zero run, 6 Recpts - 6 touches)
12 starts in 07 (2 rushes, 25 recepts - 27 touches)

(The reason for the discrepancy in starts was sometimes we listed 3 WRs off the block, sumthing like that.)

It's a no brainer that Cook lost his starting job following the fumbles.
Leach took on the primary job, and we employ him more to the task.
Let's say, (in term of RB) Leach was the feature RB, and Cook is the change-of-pace back in 07.

And I will venture to say that Leach was in the game about 2-1 as compared to Cook in 07, but that is not really the point.

The point is we utilized Leach as a lead blocker more often than with Cook (even if we pro-rate the number of times each were in the game.)
Cook was employed as an emergency RB, a receiver out of the backfield, a decoy, running a counter/trap/fake type of play moreso than with Leach.

Another thing is, Leach keeps improving beyond his blocking skill.
It's not the point about Leach vs. Cook, I would be a fool to take that on.
If I am willing to consider Taylor as an alternative, it has to mean that I'm in no way satisfied with Cook.

But like Polo said, he was not a bad player.

It's a shame this has happened to Cook. He probably wasn't gonna make the 53 anyway. Someone posted earlier that at least JJ wasn't arrested due to involvement with drugs, so he should be allright with the team from that standpoint. For anyone who hasn't figured this out yet, alcohol IS a drug, albeit legal. They'll cut Cook for the right reason. Lack of productive play.

Don't think so. He did not even go with the team.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The old definition doesn't work in the WCO.

We utilize Leach more in the traditional sense of a lead blocker.

We utilize Cook more as a hybrid between a tailback, a sometime-blocker, and a receiver out of the backfield. What I want to say!

Football 101: The West Coast Offense
Quarter and Running Backs
Fullbacks and Running Backs
Two other positions important to the West Coast offense are the fullback and running back positions. The ideal size for the fullback position should be about six foot one inch and weigh about 245 pounds. The running back should be large enough to take punishment and retain stamina. The main goals for the fullback and running back position in the West Coast offense are to be able to block and catch. In this offense these positions also have to able to pick up blitzing linebackers. The most important value for these positions is to be able to catch. These positions in the West Coast offense will probably have more catches than rushing attempts.


Ummmm, that's what fullbacks do in a West Cost Offense.... Sometimes blocker and sometimes receiver.... In other words, there is no hybrid to it, thats what they do... Is there deviation due to situational plays? Sure....

Good question, but I would think the idea would be Leach and the "Taylor Experiment", no??

I thought that Cook was kept around last year primarily for his contributions on special teams. But that might be wrong.

Thats probably the idea, but Taylor worries me a little in terms of injury. I know he only had one so far, but it was a big one. I couldn't really tell what happened to him vs NO, just saw someone fell on his leg. I think one has to go out of C.Brown, A.Green, C.Taylor their injuury prone bodies make me sick to my stomach. I think its one thing to have a backfield of average RBs, which is fine for a season or 2, but the a backfeild full of Backspasms and Bone Bruises who might play this week or next is unsettling. I am really glad we have Leach, he is a good FB, I am impressed at his catching ability as shown last week. Time will tell what our backfield picture looks like soon enough.

Was it some good stuff he got busted with. 2 grams? Betcha it was White Rhino or Northern Lights. Yeah, I have some knowledge of these things. I used to smoke, but gave it up 4 years ago. Just got bored with it. At the ripe old age of 53 I just don't feel the need for it anymore.

TB, it sure sounds like you're citing a lot of stats to me:brickwall:

Legalize drugs for the love of God please. It is ridiculous that marijuana and cocaine are illegal while you have millions popping prescription drugs all over the place. You can do coke and weed and still be a highly functioning member of society. This screams Driving While Black.:party::party:

They said he just had a muscle cramp and apparently he has a history of that.

It's a no brainer that Cook lost his starting job following the fumbles.

Cook was injured. Leach ran away with it after that.

Cook has a hard time catching.

Cook is actually thought of as a receiving FB. That's why they let excellent lead blocking FB Moran Norris go and brought him in.

Admit it, your coffee is spiked...

True that would happens on the field is not written in the book - however, basic philosophies are written down. Basic formations and plays are written down. Variation from there, is called creativity or situational adjustments.


Now go get another coffee and drop some whiskey in it... :smiliedance:

I wonder if Cook has more weed at da house? Cook should just stay in Dallas now and join the Cowboys since they seem to like the criminal element.

What restaruant?

Did Marvin Zindler come back to life and find there was a health code violation like "SLIME IN THE ICE MACHINE"?
