Default Cook to LG?

Why not? Keep Robinson at C and move Cook to LG.

You're kidding me right? Boling has been a top 5 LG in the league. This is crazy talk.

Might as well rotate them all. According to Jay they're just like WRs.

Well they now have the second-most offensive holding calls in the league.
12 sacks over the last three games. The 38 sacks allowed on the season are the most since 2008, when Bengals quarterbacks went down 51 times.

Part of this is on Andy for holding it too long and Gruden for not playing to the lines strength, running the ball. Cook does need to stay on the bench though.

Good center does not equal being a good guard, so why would we want to see a below average center move to guard?


Let's move Whalen to TE...

or how about since people dont think highly of Peko much anymore, move Peko to a our starting FB Charles back to TE, drop John Connor, pick up Haynesworth, and let the good times roll!

Actually scrap all the above, move Leonard to TE (Keep Herron, Peerson, and The Law), Dalton to SS, pick up Tim Tebow, and... nevermind.

yeah i know last year the line looked great because andy was quick to throw it away or out of bounds if the play wasnt there this year hes trying to do more and its lead to more sacks and ints. But you cant just play safe forever lol...

Getting healthy and finding our Players was key this year Boiling was suppose to be a backup but has played great for a 2nd year guy.

Found sanu then lost sanu

Rbs have been up and down all year and now that they figured out their strenghts in the run game has been pretty consistant the last 5 weeks.

And no one on our OL looked good vs the EAgles lol (those guys most be playing for there very jobs right now that DC in Philly wants to stay)

F*** no, get rid of him.

Cook has been "Wally Pipped" by Robinson, but the coaches (i.e. Paul Alexander's dumb@$$) refuse to acknowledge it.

1 bad game is < every bad game that Cook plays.

True how bad is it when you've been in the league for many years played lots of games . But aren't as good as an undrafted rookie free agent not like Robinson is a first round player here.

Well, you see on the front page that they're doing the center rotation again.

I fully realize that while most of us have played some football and coached some football, that we don't have the knowledge or see all the things that the coaches do.

But hasn't our line, as a whole, played at a much lower level since they started this stuff? I'm not even trying to judge Cook against Robinson, but an offensive line is such an interdependent group that I think bouncing it all around must be at least part of our recent problems.

Cook has more experience, but Zeitler and Boling have played more games with Robinson.

Everyone just wants the best for the Bengals, and certainly no one more than the coaches. But I just can't understand this thinking.

Thing is, Cook is a good Center, However, rotating Centers only serves to disrupt the timing of the line. Pick one and keep them in long enough for their mates to get their timing down with him.

The way I look at is that the Offensive Line is healthy and deep. All the starters are healthy and the backups (whoever that is Cook or Robinson) are solid along with Collins as the backup tackle. They have an Offensive Line for a playoff run.

I just read on Reedy at Cincinnati.com that he thinks Robinson and Cook will split the snaps 50 - 50 this week. I don't like it. Robinson 100% snaps.
