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!

Wow. Romo has his issues, but Cooley isnt even the best tight end on his own team.  Cooley, put the Blackberry down and go run some freaking patterns or something.

Cooley go back to being on the Injury List you hack.  Chris realizes that his career is almost over and needs to do something so that maybe someone will remember him one day.
well said

Cooley's a NOBODY, and the annals of history won't even remember he existed. I'm the furthest person from a Cowboys (or Romo) fan, but this washed-up TE sounds like a complete and total chode

Not sure about defending Romo but Witten verses Cooley/Davis is not even comparable and hasent been for their entire careers.  Witten has them beat in every statistical catagory and thats if you combined both Davis and Coolys numbers.  For the record I would rather have Romo than Groseman,,,, at least with Romo you have alead in the 4th quarter,, with Rex, you are usually playing ffom 14 points behind.

Its good that Cooley called out Romo.  My god he has got to be the worst choke artist in the history of the NFL.  Just give Ol Tony a chance and he will find a way to lose the game for ya.  I have been thinking and I have come to the conclusion I would pay to see him in the cage with Cooley running around like a little girl going "Oh Chris dont hurt me!"  Romo is simply a joke and the cowboys will continue to suck as long as they dont get it.  COOLEY VS ROMO no holds barred in Las Vegas at MGM Grand on pay per view.  I am in!  HA HA HA HA HA.
