I cant believe no one has said this

Am I insane or does Cooley seem to be dropping more passes this year than he catches? I've heard so much shit about how good he is, but week after week he keeps dropping easy catches. This guy has got to get his act together. He is so good at getting open, if he could just learn how to catch then he would be a very dangerous weapon.

Yeah, he's having a rough year, but he's still, pound for pound the leagues best TE, IMO.

I'm not enamored with the Gates, Shockey, and Crumpler group who gets all of their yards split out wide and never blocks on passing downs (and are usually shitty run blockers). Cooley does it all.

Not sure if he is the best but you have to say he gives his all every week and lays his body on the line for the team. Sure the dropped passes hurt but if every player had his attitude we would be a lot better off and he catches enough and makes enough big plays to change games.

Re: I cant believe no one has said this

Cooley has had a rough season, but who hasn't on the Skins this year He's dropped some balls, but he's also had some huge plays. If I was in charge I would try to sign Cooley and Sean Taylor for that matter, to long term contracts when this season is over. They're both great young players, fan favorites, and are home grown talents. We cannot afford to lose either one. I think they are two of the most important of a core group of guys that the skins need to keep together, unlike they have done in years past. If we don't lock them down soon, they could end up maturing into superstars and try to go somewhere for top dollar, especially if we keep losing.

Re: I cant believe no one has said this

CC has dropped more than usual, I made the same comment in the game thread yesterday. That being said it's just a microcosm of our season.

Re: I cant believe no one has said this

I think cooley is a terrible blocker...
He is not in the same class as Gates or Gonzales.
Cooley is just this teams version of Jamie Asher.

Re: I cant believe no one has said this

Cooley is a heck of a lot better than Jamie Asher ever was.

Bad comparison.

Re: I cant believe no one has said this

dropped passes are better than fumbles, he had some bad fumbles last year. I feel like some of his drops are also due to the ball arriving too late.

Re: I cant believe no one has said this

To me it seemed like Cooley was trying to make a play before actually catching the ball.....

Last time the Skins won a game, Cooley was largely the person to thank. So I don't think I'm in the mood to bash him.
