The time has come to make Jared Cook a wide receiver. We talked about this some last week, but this data from Pro Football Focus shows that the Titans are already splitting Cook out wide on 60% of his snaps. Why not just make the move permanent?

They also have to find a way to get him the ball. I am not talking about finding ways to get him open. I am talking about force feeding him the ball. He has the ability, or should anyway, to go up and take a ball away from a defender. The Titans have no one else on the team that can do that. Why not take advantage of it?

There are a lot of teams on the schedule in the next few weeks that put up a lot of points. The Titans aren't going to be able to keep up with them if they do not change something. Making Cook a wide receiver permanently would be a good start.
