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 mocks Romo, wants to cagefight him

you know what? im glad to hear a moron like chris cooley running his mouth. yea he is a much bigger guy, he probably would kick romo's a$$, but, this is not MMA. i like the spice in this rivalry, let him run his mouth, backing it up is a different story. i been a cowboy fan my whole life, i hate the eagles even more than i hate the redskins, but it was always the other way around, until the day michael irvin was on the field almost crippled for life, and the eagle fans cheered this injury, the mayor of silly filly even had to appoligize publicly, for that. i hate filly... its ok cooly says this, because  he is right about romo and the cowboys blowing the big leads or just leads in the 2 of the 4 games played so far this season. they should have just pounded the rock. bad coaching, knowing romos history, play it safe, run the ball, with a big lead in the 3rd qtr, and walk away with the win. BUT HERES THE THING, take away, 1 blocked punt, vs. the jets, wk 1. 5 or 6 dumb passes, that turned into points off turnovers, whether pick 6's or 2 plays later, that should have been runs, instead of passes, jason garrett's and other coaches call, romos fault as well. but, take away 7 snaps from center, 7 plays out of over 200 offensive plays for my cowboys. just take them out of the equasion for just a second, and then you will see that we can easly be 4-0 right now. were not 4-0 were 2-2, because of 7 plays. so eveyrone that is a cowboy hater, fans or players, remember this, there are still 12 games to go. and for our sake, the cowboys fans and the cowboys themselves, lets learn from this and make better decisions all the way around, we could still have the best season we had in a long time. also, when we play the pats in wk 6, we will be 100%, for the first time this year, defensivly and offensivly. and we all know the pats cannot defend the pass well at all. so hey ya'll thats just my 2 cents, have a great day.

 1 last thing. R.I.P. AL DAVIS a true football man and a legend to the sport, for today, i say go raiders, my prayers go out to the family, friends and the oakland raiders.

Cooley might want to start with someone easier since he he will have plenty of time to practice. Fred Davis will soon have Cooley's job.

Chris Cooley is a funny guy.  This is entertaining.  I like a good trash talker, and he has to talk a little more now that Clinton Portis is gone.  Remember that guys comments, he was as crazy as they come.  I like Cooley picking up the slack now that Portis is gone.
