And Davis was the target 4 out of 5 times. Not sure why the defense wouldn't have read the play regardless of who was targeted, except that if Davis was there for the 5th time you'd think EVERYBODY would expect it.
Jumped the route? Did you watch the play? Jumping a route is either undercutting it or making the cut better than the receiver. The guy who intercepted was the safety behind the play. No body jumped the route on the int. RG3 double pumped it and never should have released it. That ball was complete if Paulsen doesnt stop his route. It was a mis-communication between a TE and QB who dont normally play a lot together. As far as the defender sitting back, what you mean is he was playing safety. And last I checked, every safety in the league plays safety, except M. Williams apparently.

Cooley never could run.
What he does is catch.

And get chicks.

Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

I think re-signing Cooley was a good move at this point. I don't really expect much from him, but he should be able to help move the chains and provide some added leadership.

He might not contribute a ton, but it would warm my heart to see him have a helluva last season healthy.

Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

Sad for Fred....
HAPPY for CC. Always regretted that he played in some pretty rough Redskin years and....Would Not have a chance to play with Robert.
How Stoked is he at the thought of playing on a high powered Offense???
Excellent!

Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

Injuries happen in the NFL every week. That's why NFL contracts aren't fully guaranteed. I just hope Fred Davis can rehabilitate his injury and be ready for next season. Chris Cooley on the other hand is a welcome addition. I'm so glad that he waited on the Redskins and not sign with another team when he could have. He's certainly worth more than the veteran minimum.


Does Cooley still wear #47 or another number?

<sigh> I hate Mondays on the Warpath after a loss.
He was a graduate assistant for one year at UCLA before Gruden gave him a job in the NFL. It had absolutely everything to do with his father. Hey good for him. Wish my father was an NFL coach. Dont kid yourself though his NFL existence has EVERYTHING to do with his father. It happens all the time - not just in coaching but in Hollywood and the music industry , etc etc. Big deal. I would give my kid a job like that if i had the power to do so also.

Oh - back on topic. I see like three good "coooooooley" yells this year and not much else. He just seemed soooo not himself twards the end and to think he is going to be anything more than what he was seems impossible to me. I have been really happy with Paulsen especially this past game. Very serviceable.

edit: Not that I'm impressed with Niles Paul's transition to TE so far. Lot to develop on.
Im glad he will be behind Paul. Now when the ball goes through his hands someone will be there to catch it!

Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

I like Cooley but he seemed totally shot last season. He claims he is healthy, and i know every soon to be ex-player always does, but if Cooley's play is servicable this year, any chance at all he stays on the team past this season? Cooley is only 30 and I'd really like to see him get in a few more years before having to retire. I think he would make a great backup..

Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

Umm, couldn't we have looked for a younger faster tight end somewhere? How about calling up Kellen Winslow? Cooley's done. Yeah, it's good for those nostalgic fans here who don't want to move on and tickle their jollies by yelling "Cooooooley" on a 5 yard catch, but from a football move he does nothing for our offense but slow it down as he can't stretch the field.

Alfred Morris don't get hurt, we just might be calling up "Southeast Jerome".

He knows the offense and I think that's the main reason. But I agree, he's so slow now and seems to run with a limp.
