Sure, take a screen shot and post it as proof. On that play cooks was lined up across the field from Ekpre Olomu, his coaches knew that he couldn't get open against Olomu so they tried to line him up against Terrence Mitchell instead. But what happened on that play was Cooks ran a deep post and Olomu had deep thirds on his side and saw where the QB was looking so he ran over to help defend the pass from across the field. Again, Cooks couldn't get open when lined up against Olomu. The only receptions he got when lined up against Olomu was the first dig route and then a few quick screen stuff. He couldn't get open on a route past 10 yards on Olomu. And I could care less about the Bears right now, we suck even worse without Tedford. You realize that we had virtually the worst defense in all of college football in 2013 right?
I say that Cooks couldn't get open on the outside against a NFL starting level corner and you go post a clip of Cooks facing Practice Squad, at best, level players. And wtf is Bob?
