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!

Cooley is average at best.  Compared to Antonio Gates, who came into the league one year before Cooley, Gates has more than over 100 more catches, 2300 yds receiving, and more than doubles Cooley in TD receptions, 69 - 33.  Cooley needs to shut-up or start putting-up numbers like the better TEs in the game today.

I'm surprised to hear such a thing leaking off of a cowgirls fingers but I'm totally with you.  What's the matter honey?  Big ol' cowboy shoot something in your eye?

  What a juvenile tool.  Hey Chrissie, why not challenge Romo to a game of tetherball at recess?

Cooley is an ignorant hillbilly.  Maybe he should go back to doing shots with his inbred father-in-law.  Cooley is like the stock market...he was good 5 years ago, but sucks now.

Hunter 71 is right!  What are you Cooley?  5 yrs old?
Romo probably laughed his ass off when Cooley dropped the pass that would have put them in the playoff a few years ago.

Your brain = Witten
Your brain on drugs = Cooley

Back to your trailer Un-Cooley

Its hilarious how many bandwagon Cowboy fans there still are! Let me guess...most of you are between 20-30 and and watched the Cowboys win all kinds of titles in the 90's and POW! they became your favorite team! Not paying dividends anymore is it?? 
If they've stuck with them through Quincy Carter & Chad Hutchinson, do they still have the bandwagon label?


Work on what game? hes been 1 of the best TE since he came in the league.
Ha...He's been good...Not great...

OK first off Chris is a great TE. I am a skins fan and still say Witten is a beast, but Cooley is good too. That sid he is a character and always has been. this is funny stuff and he is setting himself up to be on TV on Sundays after his football days are over.

Cooley isn't even good anymore. Shut your mouth and worry about your own crappy team that will get exposed soon.
