Chilly Pulls the Trigger on Cook

It finally happened – Brad Childress got fed up with Ryan Cook‘s penalties and whiffs on pass-rushers and benched the right tackle.  Gosh Brad, what sealed the deal for you?  Gus Frerotte getting turned into a human tackling dummy the last couple of weeks, largely because Cook doesn’t get off the ball worth a damn?  Stephen Hawking has faster reflexes than Cook.  Now Artis Hicks will start at right tackle.  He was the starting left tackle when Bryant McKinnie was suspended so I doubt he’ll have much trouble sliding right in.  This doesn’t fix all our offensive line issues obviously, but it goes a long way toward shoring up the right side.  And there should be a noticeable reduction in the number of bad penalties.
