Re: Chris Cooley Released

It is as if we have lost a member of our family. We will miss Chris Cooley.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

It's all for the best. I wonder if the Redskins just decided to release Cooley or trade him first. The Redskins releasing Cooley is like the Cowboys releasing Jason Witten or the Jets releasing Santanio Holmes. Cooley in a trade, would have been worth at least a 5th round draft choice as compensation.

I understand Shanny wants to take this team in a different direction but it is still disapointing as a diehard Redskin fan. I hope that Shanny does get this team to the promise land but i still question some of his moves. Now i just have Moss to root for as he is still one of my favorites but how long before he is cut? I guess its time to get some new favorites but i just love the old reliable ones. Anyways im done with my rant and HTTR and may we have great success in the future with or without my favorite players
I loved Billy Kilmer. He was my first football hero gritty, hard drinking and a guy who was all Redskin. I hated it when he was done.

I loved John Riggins. He was tough, gritty and a character like no other a d a guy who was all Redskin. I hated it when he was done


Ditto Cooley.

Soon, new players will arise who will win our affections. Cooley's left, sad though it may be, new favorites will arise.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Cooley lasted a bit longer (couple weeks) than I thought he would

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Well, I know this isn't a popular opinion around here, but I don't mind seeing him go. I was never a fan of the blog and of all the non-football attention he managed to grab. It was always funny when he'd show up to practice in those silly shorts, but it always seemed to me to suggest he wasn't taking practice as seriously as he should have been. And reading about his drunken escapades on his blog sent a strange message to me about his priorities. Of course, to average football fans, the Cooley persona went over great, because it made him relatable, by I don't want my players to be relatable. I've been told on this site before to lighten up about criticizing Cooley, and I understand why I would have been told that. Nevertheless, I personally feel that for the past decade, the players in Washington have not been as committed to winning as the players on the more successful teams, that the collective approach and attitude from the locker room was far too laid back and not serious enough (Club Med?). For me, Cooley's off-field persona kind of personified that, even if he did always say the right things. I'll give the man credit, from his post-game interviews to his hysterical blog posts, he always knew what to say to make Redskin fans love him.

Great post. As a kid I grew up in the eighties and nintetie. Lots of players to love and they have all gone. This is the way of the sport we love so much.

Rak and Kerrigan are a couple of new guys to love, and we may have a great qb when it's all said and done.

Imagine how much worse you would feel if we actually won something with CP and Cooley, as we did with Art Monk and Darrell Green. Monk and Green were also great Redskins and good good people like Cooley. Add winning multiple Championships and the loss of them hurts even more.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

For all the obvious reasons, this is one of the tougher releases to stomach of any Washington Redskins player since I've been following the team. It was the right move though.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

I just don't get it though. Fred Davis is one strike away from a year long suspension and Nile Paul has a pretty bad case of the drops. Ironically enough I prefer Logan Paulsen at this point to Niles Paul. Hopefully I'm wrong because Paul has tons of upside at TE but right now it's nothing more then potential and empty Shanon Sharpe comparisons.

True enough. And it's also nice that releasing Cooley gives him complete freedom to choose where he wants to go, assuming he still wants to play.
