Cooley mocks Romo, wants to cagefight him

The rivalry between the Cowboys and Redskins is always entertaining, especially when you have characters like Chris Cooley involved. (For those that don't remember Cooley and then-teammate Colt Brennan did a mock video of Jason Witten and Tony Romo doing a "Fantasy Files" video. It's amazing.)

But Cooley might have taken things to a new level this time, mocking the Cowboys choke against Detroit last week and Romo's meltdown. Also, challenging Romo to fight.

"It’s SO good," Cooley said of Romo's play in Week 4, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. "I was watching the scoreboard in St. Louis, and I didn’t see that they’d lost really until they end, I thought they blew them out so I kind of stopped paying attention. It’s amazing, AMAZINGto watch him choke like that.

"I’m just saying, I’m up 24 points in the third quarter, if I’m the head coach, I feel like I could probably just take a knee for the rest of the game, punt it away and there’s no way that Detroit’s gonna drive on you that many times," Cooley said. "The only way you’re gonna give up that many points is turnovers, right? It’s hilarious to watch him throw pick sixes, too, back-to-back. I loved it. But it wouldn’t be as good as my cage fight."

Cooley makes a pretty good point, and the same one I've been screaming about all week -- the Cowboys were up 24 points and weren't running the damn ball. Just because it's a passing league doesn't mean you have to pass. Run the ball. Melt the clock. Win the game. It's a pretty simple formula if you're up 24 points.

Whatever, the point being that Cooley also said he thinks he can take Romo in a cagefighting match. Arrington, per Steinberg, asked Cooley how long it would take to finish Romo off in the classic steel-cage format. The result is, predictably, awesome.

"For me to beat Tony? I’m gonna be honest, I don’t know what kind of cagefighting skills he has," Cooley said. "I would probably try to incorporate my wrestling ability, like when I was in high school. Obviously it’s been a while, but I didn’t like to beat people fast. I like to embarrass 'em a little bit. Like, take a 24-point lead, and then just play with it a little bit."

Well then -- the Redskins/Cowboys rivalry is just taking on a whole new turn of nastiness isn't it? Cooley seems to have already forgetten what happened in Week 3, when the Cowboys won on Monday night. But that's OK, it only makes the fight that much spicier.

With that in mind, let's break down the measurables. Or, at least, the stuff we like to compare between the two guys. To the tape!

Matt Cooley is an idiot.  If he had damaged Tony Romo on the field, The League would have had to suspend him because he "called his shot".  Literally.

I think Cooley should man up and challenge a guy his size!  I'd Say Demarcus Ware!!  6'4 260 would be perfect.  There you go cooley think your tough lets see Demarcus and Cooley cage it up.

Okay.. so we are supposed to take a screen like porkchop seriously.   Just joking don't get upset....  Cooley says a lot of stuff to get folks to read his blog.  He's playing around and he respects the Cowgirls.. I mean Cowboys.   Good grief, Calm down.  Folks are getting thinskinned.  As far as the Boys... they have a lot of talent, that is why they have been the prohibitative favorite to win the division and one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl the past 4 years.   The fact they are playing better is not a suprise,  it is when the play sloppy and that high powered offense does not produce that is a surprise.  If they put it together, the Cowboys will be formidable.    But that all being said... Go Redskins!   (had to put that in there).     I agree about Al Davis... he was a charactor and a visionary and the league is better for because of both.    God Rest his soul.
