Everything seemed possible before the bye, now, not so much.

Re: Cooley put on IR

I don't see that this affects us a lot, seems like his playing time had been steadily decreasing.

All I can say, is this is now definitely MS' team, for good or bad. Even the stalwarts of the previous era are falling, Moss, Cooley, even Fletch was out a bit last week. Time for us to see what our future holds.

Re: Cooley put on IR

Bottom line, it's time for the young guys to step up.

I may be the only who feels this way, but none of these injuries are deal breakers, save London, and this team can still make a run.

Re: Cooley put on IR

This sucks, but totally makes sense, given the depth we have at TE, and pressing needs at OL and RB. I hate to ask the question, but will Cooley be back with the Skins next year? I would expect the team to ask him to take a pay cut. I'm pretty sure that Davis will be a free agent after the season, and the FO would be wise to give him an extension before he can hit the open market.

Re: Cooley put on IR

I think both Cooley and Davis come back next year. I mean, Cooley has a hand injury not an ACL tear. He'll be fine, but I have to think Davis is now the future at TE.

Re: Cooley put on IR

I think we've seen the last of Cooley as a Redskin, unless he takes a huge pay cut. The era of Fred Davis has already begun.

Re: Cooley put on IR

Sucks for Cooley and for us this year.. He's going to have to take a pay cut in order to be back in 2012.

I think it sucks too but does make sense. I thought he would have hung around and would only come back if we made a playoff push. I dont think him playing just to play this season would be worth it. Hopefully this gives him time to get his knee right too.

I think he will be back. hes proven that when hes out with a injury hes still the guy that coaches other players. With Samuels gone hes probably the biggest offensive leader. I also dont think hes getting paid that much.

A positive is that this could act as a bait ploy to keep Davis around. Davis is going to rightfully want some money and will also want to start. Now that he will truely be considered the teams number 1 TE for the rest of the year the starting position will probably be considered his job to loose next year. Im thinking Davis will continue as a hybrid TE/WR next year while Cooley will play the more traditional TE role. Hopefully we will actually get to see more of the 2 TE sets next year that weve been promised agian and again....

Re: Cooley put on IR

Feel bad for Cooley but I think his career here is over. Not really a big loss on the field cause he was a non factor. It's Davis' time and position now.
