Brandin Cooks Confirms Frustration After Zero Catch Game


A couple of days ago, we sensed frustration from New Orleans Saints wide receiver after he posted a cryptic message on social media. The frustration stems from him not being targeted once in the Saints 49-21 blowout win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Yesterday, Cooks finally broke it down to the media. 

“I feel like the opportunities will come,” Cooks stressed. “But at the same time this is a very emotional game and every once in a while you have to express that and you have to express what you want. Closed mouths don’t get fed.”

“It’s one of those things, the competitor. I was a little frustrated, but at the same time our offense was moving the ball, we won the game, so that was the bright side of it. I was just thinking from a competition standpoint. I always want to help. I feel like I necessarily didn’t (against the Rams).”

The Saints are set to face the Detroit Lions this Sunday.
