Re: Cooley Sets New Skins TE Receptions Record

Cooley also breaks a ton of tackles and is always fighting for extra yards, I can't hate on him too much for 3 fumbles this year.

Re: Cooley Sets New Skins TE Receptions Record

Cooley is a special player at TE. A real Franchise TE.
One position we DO NOT have to worry about.

he might have lost a couple fumbles these past couple games...but nor do i put those games on Cooleys shoulders entirely by any means. In fact..he gets my pass completly.

Hes had some GREAT GREAT games for us. The 2nd Cowbodys meeting in `05 sticks out.
The way he breaks tackles...its almost a mystery...players just slide off him as he runs by...Hes got great leverage for YAC.
But hes really been there for some sure hands alot over these past few years. And im sure we havent seen his best game recieving yet.

Re: Cooley Sets New Skins TE Receptions Record

With that many catches you just wonder why he wasn't able to find the endzone more. Probably not his fault, it may have something to do with the scheme.

I don't even remember the last time they looked his way in the red zone.

Re: Cooley Sets New Skins TE Receptions Record

I'd like to know how many trips they've had to the red zone since the offensive slump began.

I love the guy, but he probably broke the record for critical fumbles as a Redskin TE too!

Cooley leads all tight ends in yards after contact. Sure, he could bring his fumbles down to zero if he took a knee after catching the pass, but what he brings to the table is the ability to run with the ball. Three fumbles is meaningless compared to the key first downs he's fought for after initial contact.

I don't believe that is true because peopl lead all the time with their helmet when making a tackle and the runner lowers their head before a hit.

The only rule I could find is this one:
Quote:
Article 8 There shall be no unnecessary roughness. This shall include, but will not be limited to:
(g) using any part of a player’s helmet (including the top/crown and forehead/“hairline” parts) or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily
http://blogmedia.thenewstribune.com/...20RULEBOOK.pdf

In the scenario you outlined, it's not violent or unnecessary (i.e., the defender can't control what the RB is going to do with his helmet).

Thats what I think and I also looked but could not find the rule either.

It has to be intentional and blatant.

Sure helmet to helmet contact happens all the time, just not intentionally. That's when it gets flagged.

I agree wit this statement, unforutnately his fumbles come at the wrong time during the course of a game.
