Entering the 2011 season Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook was supposed to have a breakout campaign and in some ways you could argue that he delivered on that promise. However, for much of the year he was inconsistent and waited until the last three games of the season to show his true potential. Therefore, despite the very solid season he turned in, Cook has plenty of room for improvement in 2012.
In the first 13 games of the 2011 NFL season, Cook hauled in 28 passes for 424 yards and two touchdowns. Thats an average of just over two catches and 32 receiving yards per game, not exactly elite numbers.
Yet, in the last three games of the season Cook flashed superstar potential, putting on an exhibition as he totaled 21 receptions for 335 yards and a touchdown. That averages out to a whopping seven catches and 111.6 receiving yards per game.
Its not that anyone could expect Cook to produce those kinds of numbers over a 16-game season, that would be exceeding even Rob Gronkowski...
