What if Fred started 16 games?

This guy has only started 8 GAMES! And has 40 catches and 6 TD'S... If he started 16 games for us this year he would easily have 10 TD'S and around 80 REC. I Love COOLEY but I think this kid is going to be even better. IMO he would have been a Pro Bowler if started all year, this is why many ppl had him a first round selection in 08. O and 4 straight games with a REC TD, when is the last time that's happen for us?

Fred Davis

Just think of the other unknown to the league M.Mitchell his speed next year will stretch the field. I hope the right coach comes here because there is talent. Just need some coaching.

Could not say it any better warpaint.. Haynesworth even mentioned this team has alot of talent just bad coaching.. Think about it with Shanahan, he will have Davis at TE (I Still think CC will be traded), Thomas, Moss and Mitchell at WR. If we can somehow find some olineman we could be much improved. ZORN is really a nice guy but a terrible HC. And last night was him mailing it in.

I hope he is a break out player next year but he is a 4.5 guy, DBs are not going to be scared of his speed.
I just don't understand what some people see in him at this point that says he can play in this league.

Re: What if Fred started 16 games?

Imagine a talented 2 TE set like we will have in a Shanahan offense. Also remember Davis has the speed to be flexed out in the slot to create mismatches. I hope they don't trade Cooley because you shouldn't let go of a strength like this when you have it.

He catches what is thrown to him, he is tall and fast of the line and he can plant his foot and release from it well. He could be something special.

Even when the redskins were beaten in all phases of the game last night. The few bright spots within that game was Fred Davis scoring a touchdown.

Re: What if Fred started 16 games?

Oh, how quickly we forget the best that we have. Cooley is a Redskin, and I can't say let's replace him just because he got hurt and Davis plays in his place. If we had Cooley right now we might be looking at different plays being called with two tight ends in the lineup. Nope, I can't agree to a trade of Cooley for a 3rd round pick!

Re: What if Fred started 16 games?

does any team in the league use a 2 T.E set, with both being primary receiving T.E's? i don't think so. more then likely, one of them will go. i hoping Davis stays, for a bunch of reasons

I Hope so!!! But I really could see CC Traded because of our low amount of draft picks... Fred is amazing, he has A.Gates talent at the TE position.

The young man can play that's for sure. Could get 800 yards easily.

Fred Davis
i'm not gonna knock davis or anything but his production is a direct result of sherm lewis calling the plays, zorn did not do a good enough job of getting cooley the ball. i find it amazing(in a bad way) that people want to kick cooley to the curb just because davis is having a good season. cooley is a probowl te.this should be an interresting off season.

you hit the nail on the head my friend

and what alot of these people around here fail to realize is that cooley was always the drop down guy and never really involved with an offense the way sherm lewis knows how to run it. fred davis looks like a stud and i am taking nothing away from what he has done he looks great, but we have never seen cooley involved in a true working wco, the likes of which we have seen spurts of here lately

and for all the guys that want to see cooley traded why wouldn't you want to see a two te set or an option with davis in the slot or cooley in coming out of the back field

keep cooley for next year and then if a two te set doesn't work then you think about moving one of them most likely cooley, until then lets stop talking about trading the one last guy we have who we drafted and groomed into a elite player in the nfl

Re: What if Fred started 16 games?

What if we start creating two set of TEs plays? We have two talented TEs, we just need to get creative w/ plays.. LBs could not over both Cooley and Davis; we can start using rushing plays whole lot more, it would become easier to use Cooley and Davis at same time.. This would set up nice play action plays, only if the offense coordinator (or head coach) knows when to use it..

Why would we want to trade away our best weapon, Cooley? If it wasn't for him, our offense would have been whole lot worse.. Now then, Davis is nice addition.. Redskins FO knew that we were going to draft a talented TE when we already have Cooley.. We should have prepared for it but we weren't..
