Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

Cooley was never very fast he just seemed to find a void in the D and then make people miss all in slow motion.

Alfred Morris don't get hurt, we just might be calling up "Southeast Jerome".
Why Kellen Winslow? Why someone with a bad knee who's been on three teams in less than two years and, despite being only 29 years old doesn't have teams knocking down his door?

I would give my kid a job like that if i had the power to do so also.

As in all things, relationships undisputably open doors. Generally though, and particularly in the ultra competitive world of professional sports, once in - it's on you to man up. I would suggest that Kyle has done just that and, from what I can tell, is very well respected in the league.

It was a mis-communication between a TE and QB who dont normally play a lot together.
Sorry, you're not going to the get the Goat "Strong Post" stamp of approval with comments like these - (1) You failed to criticize Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan, or Haslett and (2) you compound this failing by pointing out something that demonstrates it was not Kyle's fault. Accuracy be damned! I don't care if the ball was beyond the intended receiver - the safety jumped the route.

Brilliant on so many levels.

Re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

As to Cooley, and as others have said, I get it. I guess, though, that I think it was time to move on and he really adds nothing to the offense. At this time of year, however, pickings are slim and, I suppose, better to have a plug and play guy than hope to find some developmental guy who is a liability every time he steps on the field (insert Niles Paul joke here).

I agree. If anyone cares to look in the Oxford English Dictionary under 'Team Albatross' there's a picture of Kellen Winslow, AKA The Soldier.

I'd much rather have a true Redskins on roster who desperately wanted to go out on his shield (and now gets that chance) than some immature super hero who has never got it done.

Coooooooooooleeeeeeey!

I don't think adding Cooley was necessary either. Would rather see Young, even Grant in an expanded role in the passing offense

Well he has been an OC for what six years? Had some really good talent in Houston, whom by the way, have not missed a beat since he left. What he did here in Washington his first two years was - well- no comment. Now RG-3 is making him a genius again. Man up? Maybe. Step in a big pile of shit when they landed RG-3 to save his job? More like it.
