I think the hype for CEH in KC seems pretty similar to the hype Cook is getting from Bills fans now. CEH was supposed to be their dynamic RB catching the ball

 

CEH was a completely different prospect. Cook is a lot more dynamic with the ball in his hands IMO. CEH was supposed to be more of a traditional inside runner with some pass catching ability, and had just okay speed. His lack of elite playmaking ability made him a questionable 1st round pick.

I hear ya, there is a lot of butt hurt fans when it comes to this sort of thing, kinda funny to read their laments…, oh well, life is indeed good,👍

Not likely getting either at pick 32…, 

 

SB winner or not, the Cook pick will likely be what stands in the way of it happening. That's why I hate where he was taken so much.

You like many in here thought Breece Hall was going 1st rd, probably thought one pick higher than where C. Johnson was selected too. So what's your point?

 

I could see top-notch speed in any C. Johnson highlight reel, college or professional; I have to force myself to see James Cook's game-changing speed.

 

James Cook can be good for the Bills, he's just not the best we could have committed to at the position.

 

 

That’s because he plays RB…..and luckily, we preferred to spend out 1st round pick on a premium position and drafted the best cornerback we could’ve committed to.  Cornerback >>> RB.  If you don’t know, know you knoooooow.

 I'm glad Beane took Cook, he's the piece the offense has been missing. A legit dual threat RB/WR with speed to make defenses pay for covering with a LBer and also doubling Diggs. He's in Rich Eisen's top 5 sneaky good picks. Spoiler Alert....He's #1.

 

 

I 100% agree with his top 5.  I ask my Bills fans this... Everyone goes into nickel 2 deep packages against us. I say that is why Devin did as good as he did because teams really never defended our run nor did a simple swing pass scare teams.

 

What are defenses going to do when teams go 2 deep, and we just swing it to cook. 

What are defenses going to do when we have Cook back there then at same time, we swing McKenzie in the backfield as well? 

 

This game is all about forcing defenses to your will. 2 TE sets on top of it is going to make it very hard for defenses to stay 2 deep because we now have the dynamic ability to get 5-6 yards a play with what we now have.

 

By Game 3 Cook is going to be driving defenses NUTS... maybe even by game 1 or 2.....

Agreed.  They are not even close to the same type of player.

 

if he’s talking about the “hype”, yeah, every rd 1-2 pick gets hype

Late second after two trade backs. They probably had him rated a third rounder. There weren't any players with a second round grade left by the time they picked Cook. Your takes are persistent, certainly bull-headed, often wrong, imo. Cook will expand the capacity of the offense to get YAC and make the defenses have to prepare for multiple options on the field, as Cook is more than capable as a slot receiver. You can even line him up on the outside on occasion, as he tracks the ball very well.

Or maybe they just didn't use the 1st pick on Cook because he didn't have a 1st rd. grade on him.

CEH was a "fully committed to mahomes and give him what he wants" mahomes said he wanted CEH so they got him to appease mahomes.

His skill set couldn't be more different from cook, yes ceh can catch the ball well but he was brought in to be the bell cow power back that can catch the ball. Cook is being brought in to be the miss match for LBs in the passing game putting defenses in a tough spot if they want to run the 2 high. CEH can bruise you up the middle and grind out a clock but hes not a miss match for LBs. I would compare CEH to more Singletarys style but with much better hands.

It actually doesn’t matter where he was taken, and one player, a rookie RB on top of it, isn’t what makes or breaks a championship run, 

 

They can always draft another RB whenever, it’s not a big deal, ya gotta remember, the cap is totally fungible.

Cook is now a Buffalo Bill.  I defiantly understand where people coming from in wanting Hill over Cook. 

 

Cook is now a Buffalo Bill, and you show 0 respects for that fact... I have spent the time trying to get to know all of our top 4 draft picks and although I may not agree with say the LB pick for example... They are now a Buffalo Bill and because they are a Buffalo Bill, I love them.

 

You on the other hand you have shown nothing but pure 100% Hatred for the dude. You have gone on this crusade to will your way through this topic with bad narratives, comparing to the best ever and even worse not responding to 1 valid point made on these forums about Cook. I have seen valid points on both sides. You a minority think cook is trash. You're in the minority for a reason.

 

Then you write this piece of trash here...  Chiefs have slight odds to only the bills in winning the whole darn thing... and you type this? We should of been in the big game last year and we would of won it.. We are a way better team this year even without cook. We will be more diverse on both sides of the field. 

 

your horrible narratives are making 0 sense... None!

duh…..

just like Kamara, Henry, Taylor, cook, jones, Chubb, Mixon, Akers, ekeler weren’t given 1st rd grades….

 

he wasn’t the “best rb” in the draft.  No one is saying that he is. Your point being that Cook was “not the best we could’ve committed to at RB”……means nothing. Who cares?  Was Damian Williams the best RB the chiefs could’ve committed to in 2019?  No.  But he was good enough and didn’t keep them from winning a super bowl.  The following year, they committed to who they thought was “the best” available yo commit to…..and they lost.  It means next to nothing.

at least 10 of us have tried... lost cause.

 

That being said I 100% agree with your message :D
