Connor Cook to Make NFL History Saturday
Former MSU QB Connor Cook will make NFL history Saturday when the Raiders face the Texans in Houston. He will be the first QB ever to make his NFL starting debut in a playoff game. A game I think he can win.
The Raiders organization likes the 'swagger" Cook plays with. He saw his first action last week against the Denver Broncos, one of the best defenses in the NFL. He threw for a touchdown and 150 yards but did have a fumble and an interception. The Raiders lost starting QB Derek Carr to a broken leg and his back-up Matt (Holden) McGloin was injured against Denver.
Michigan State Head Football coach Mark Dantonio called it a great opportunity for Cook. He had character questions at MSU even though he won more games than any Quarterback in the HISTORY of MSU football. MSU sure missed him this year going 3-9 with a Senior QB who was a team captain.
