Put him in at center??? He can only be better.
Can he play right guard? That is our biggest weakness on the OL IMO.
Actually, both of our guards are terrible.
Our season is saved!
Just because he is activated doesn't mean he plays. It will probably take a few more games to see some action, afterall, it is a 'process' to get into game shape.
Seriously, this is great news. True, he needs a couple of weeks of work, but he could be a real center for us.
I didn't think he was still on the team.
I agree. If anything it means Arkin doesnt snap in a regular season game. Cook was a guard before he came to Dallas. He's done an admirable job all things considered but he's not a natural center.
No, Cook's run blocking is what is killing us right now. It just isn't what he does well. Livings has been good and Bern is way better than early in the year
It is quite possible that he would be better suited to play guard if center is not his natural position. It's hard to judge what his performance would be as a guard because he is playing out of position at center. Then again, it may be possible. Center is not an easy position to play.
I don't know about the rest of you, but when I saw Kawasaki play center, he played strong and fast! I think once he's healthy and gets some practice in, either this season and plays, or next season with OTA's and training camp, he will be a player for the Cowboys.
Bern still sucks, and Livings is average.
Cook isn't "Killing" the running game any more than Bern.
Most around here liked Kowaloski better than any of the Centers that were viaing for the position, thank god for aquiring Cook but if healthy Killa equals an upgrade for the running game.
Part of JG's new coaching strategy... go with players with impressive sounding nick names..
That's what I'm talking about, plus he's young and getting ready to play wherever the team needs him at.
And you can tell DeMarco wants in the game! He wants to run some ball.
He couldn't be any worse then Cook. Cook has been decent in pass protection except for stunts, has issues with that. But he is AWFUL in giving any push in run game. Between him and Bernadeau I don't think they have ever created a hole
Cook has to be the worst run blocking center in the NFL. Ironically, considering all the off-season criticism he took, I believe Costa's injuries are really hurting our offense badly this year. If we had Kowalski available all season there would have been a much smaller drop off.
Activated but how long before he is in football condition?
