Re: Would you swap even up Cooper for CMC? Nah -

Wouldn't do it. Both are fine men, good people, team players.

Cooper Kupp plays the more valuable position - but let's take that out of the equation too.

Cooper Kupp is a force multiplier. Not just in the "he makes the players around hiim better" general sense, but also in specifics.

The Puka we've seen in his first two games is not the same player who came to camp. I see him putting moves on people in his route running that are straight out of the Cooper Kupp playbook.The ins and outs of playing the position, the things that translate to the increased effeciency between receiver and quarterback, are things that Kupp can imparts to others in the receiver room, if they are capable of learning what Kupp can teach as next steps in their growth, and translating these things into heightened performance on the field. I wish I had the techno expertise to go into the clips, isolate examples of what I'm talking about, and produce an overlapping narrative to demonstrate clearly what I mean.

Kupp's rapport, chemistry, dedicated study and communication with Stafford is synergistic - it elevates the performance of both players. You don't get that connection after the handoff between a quarterback and any running back.

Even though we'd be gaining at the running back position we'd be giving up too much by losing Kupp.
