Cornish. Hughes receive awards
Has Cote ever won a weekly award? He s one of the unsung heroes that never gets the recognition he deserves. I am sure all teams have these type of players. There needs to be an "unsung hero" award for those guys that go into the trenches, do the things others don't want to do and do it well. Thank you Cote for what you bring to the team and what you do day in and day out.
I completely agree. And you know what, I thought he was going to be a big step down from Teyo Johnson. But honestly, due to his lunch pail work ethic, I think I actually may prefer him.
Sure he may not pull down an epic Hail Mary pass as time expires the way Teyo did a few years ago, and maybe he's not as big or athletic, but he's every bit as reliable a pass catcher. I couldn't even tell you the last time I saw him drop a ball. In terms of overall effectiveness in the passing game, I don't really notice a dropoff at all.
In terms of the little details like blocking he may even be better than Teyo was.
