Re: Chris Cooley Released

I'm just saying maybe being close to home is not what would help him. Maybe a fresh start and a total recommitment to just at least trying to become the player he once was would benefit him. You could apply it to any player in this situation really, this isn't exclusively about Cooley

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Cooley is not retiring. He will prolly play for the Panthers, Dolphins or the Rams.

I think in Cooley's case and a lot of other older vets father time has simply caught up to them.

At 39 now I can feel the difference from when I was 20 something. My joints and back are much more sensitivity to workouts and physically demanding days then they were say 9 years ago.

I workout and eat well but still I can feel the effects of age.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Cooley just turned 30. As long as his knees aren't shot he should be able to still play. Speed was never his game anyway.

Interesting list.

I remember when we let CP go, there were rumors about the Giants getting him too...I don't see it with Chris.

He'll probably get a call when some team has a devastating injury at TE like Gates/Graham/Finley/etc.

Houston's TE has had trouble staying on the field...can't think of his name at the moment but he's very good when healthy.

I can't come up with any clever response to this

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Smoot, are you thinking about the storm or the game with your tag?

Re: Chris Cooley Released

I could see him going to the Packers as well. Jermichael Finley is prone to injury and is very VERY streaky, and Cooley is more of a grind it out, sure handed player that can function well in the cold. Imagine him and Finley with dual TE set, with Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson split out wide.

Fukkin dangerous. SOmeone is gonna pick him up, he still has plenty of tread on those tires.

BREAKING NEWS.....

John Beck and Case Keenum battle it out to see who gets the nod for the Texans 3rd string (practice squad possibly) QB. The Nations attention turns away from Hurricane Issac to the BATTLE ROYALE OF THE CENTURY.




Texans quarterbacks John Beck and Case Keenum will have a final chance to vie for a roster spot on Thursday night at Reliant Stadium.

Coach Gary Kubiak announced Tuesday that backup quarterback T.J. Yates will not play against the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason finale. Beck, a sixth-year veteran, will start the game. Keenum, an undrafted rookie from the University of Houston, will play the entire second half.

Im watching, I know that for damn site.

Speaking of the storm, Isaac sucks. Water is everywhere and many trees are down. Luckily I still have power so I can still visit the Warpath.

that's how i feel. his game has been finding the hole in the zone and settling down as a safe target (and then breaking tackles and/or falling forward).

i never really paid attention, but did he ever play on coverage units? could be my imagination but i feel he would be a strong special teams player (despite his lack of speed).

Yes sir. My house is ok because it is raised but there is flooding right across the street and my yard is a lake.

I just hope the electricity lasts long enough to see the game tonight.

Well, on the bright side, Mississippi is officially out of the drought.
