The last word from Chris Cooley

Chris Cooley, Barry Church

Yes, Chris Cooley’s comments about Tony Romo have already received too much attention.

Yes, we’re going to give them more attention. It’s for a good reason; Cooley wrote a long and thoughtful post about the topic and we wanted to pass it along.

“In a league full of glad-handing and ass slapping between competing teams, I actually care about the organization and fan base that has supported me throughout my 8-year career,” Cooley writes.  “While I feel an honest respect for all NFL players, I show no remorse in cheering against another team, especially the Cowboys. If it sounded like I was delighted by Tony Romo’s failure last week, I was.”

Thank you.  Cooley goes on from there to point out that it’s not personal with Romo.  He also responds in hilarious fashion to a lot of the nasty Twitter messages he’s received.

Admonishing Cooley like he’s some fourth-grader is a joke. The more that I read about the NFL of the 60′s, 70′s, and 80′s, the more I realize there was far more “trash talking” then.  You want players to root against each opponents. It’s boring to get the same fake sound bite over and over.

There is nothing worse than hearing phony moralizing from people who take sports too seriously. When there is a rare player like Cooley that has a little fun, we kill him for it.

We leave with an actual response from ESPN’s Skip Bayless about Cooley’s quotes:

“Way, way, out bounds.  I lost a lost of respect of Chris Cooley,” Bayless said with a hushed tone as if someone had died. “He comes across as some lame-brained, knee-jerked Redskins fan.”

This is coming from a man who holds the world record for lame-brained, knee-jerk, out of bounds, hypocritical sports commentary.

    “If it sounded like I was delighted by Tony Romo’s failure last week, I was.”

    BINGO!

    end of story!

  2. favreforever says: Oct 6, 2011 3:01 PM

    In a portion of his statement that was quickly edited out, Chris went on to say that Senor Romo and Los Gay Caballeros were among the league’s worst offenders when it came to “ass slapping” and “glad handing” opponents, in the genital area.

  3. shieldsisland37 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:01 PM

    Skip is just crying because his Cowboys lost.

  4. jpb12 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:02 PM

    His name is Skip.

  5. gmenhq says: Oct 6, 2011 3:02 PM

    Hey Skip, if you knew anything about being a competitor at this level we’d have more respect for YOU

  6. realitypolice says: Oct 6, 2011 3:02 PM

    “Way, way, out bounds. I lost a lost of respect of Chris Cooley,” Bayless said with a hushed tone as if someone had died. “He comes across as some lame-brained, knee-jerked Redskins fan.”
    =================

    Yes, God forbid a player say something that makes him sound like a fan of the team he plays for.

    What does it say about Bayless that he compares a player to a fan and means it as an insult to the player?

  7. kd75 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:03 PM

    It isn’t like Cooley was a Groomsman at Romo’s wedding and then returned an INT to the house…

  8. tinkletinkleonyourstar says: Oct 6, 2011 3:04 PM

    as a giants fan living in the middle of redskin territory, i pretty much hate every player on the redskins (and eagles and cowboys for that matter)
    but i must say, the other day i was having a conversation with my son regarding what cooley said and i told him that of all the players on the redskins, i can tolerate cooley the most.
    as much as it pains me to say this, he is a class act.
    people get their panties in a wad way to easily these days. he said what he felt, if you’re offended by it, tough shi*.

  9. turk2875 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:04 PM

    Skip Bayless is a turd…enough said.

  10. jimbobobjr says: Oct 6, 2011 3:04 PM

    I am now completely on Chris Cooley’s side only because Skip Bayless isn’t.

  11. kevinfromphilly says: Oct 6, 2011 3:05 PM

    “Admonishing Cooley like he’s some fourth-grader is a joke.”

    Correct. Same for deleting PFT commenters’ posts.

  12. orakpownd says: Oct 6, 2011 3:06 PM

    Im happy to have a player on my team that has a connection to the heritage and fan base. We love in Redskin Nation Captain Chaos!!!!

  13. wagon151515 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:06 PM

    Please pft, write another article about what some washed up, injury plagued, pottery making, non-productive tight end has to say about Tony romo. The previous 11 stories just isn’t enough.

  14. jamesmbell says: Oct 6, 2011 3:06 PM

    Like I said after the original post…If this was a black player saying this about Romo every writer on PFT would have bashed him, as they always do. Or would have made some lame brained, knee-jerk response about home Cooley has single digit receptions and should focus more on his own game.

  15. Joey C says: Oct 6, 2011 3:07 PM

    Could not agree more about the hypocrisy especially from Skip Bayless. The guy is absolutely brutal to listen to.

  16. raynman49 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:07 PM

    Last paragraph is right on. bayless has finally caused me to avoid ESPN First Take. he’s getting worse by the day. Total idiot!

  17. fofofotey says: Oct 6, 2011 3:08 PM

    How can Cooley go on living without Skip Bayless’ respect?

  18. jackfnburton says: Oct 6, 2011 3:09 PM

    The Cowboys and Redskins SHOULD despise each other. It’s tradition. It’s the way it’s always been. It’s like Packers-Bears or Ravens-Steelers. And to a lesser extent, Broncos-Raiders.

    I love it.

  19. isonic1 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:10 PM

    It’s hilarious everyone took him so serious in the first place. This is after all the same guy that posted a pic of his junk on the internet.

  20. waitingguilty says: Oct 6, 2011 3:11 PM

    Great Bayless closing shot. Kudos!

  21. sneschalmers says: Oct 6, 2011 3:11 PM

    Amen on so many levels. I can’t stand Skip Bayless for one, and Cooley’s comments were fine. You want him to stop making them, Cowboys? Start winning.

  22. sadskinsfan89 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:11 PM

    Cooleys the man. Bayless is a joke, Espn is a drama filled joke of a station. Maybe Bayless should talk about how he said the redskins wld be a joke this year and wld be competing for andrew luck.

  23. dccowboy says: Oct 6, 2011 3:12 PM

    I just hope he enjoys the game when Dallas plays at Washington in November as much as this. NOT.

    I guess, in his own way, he’s trying to re-ignite the intense rivalry/hatred between the Skins and Cowboys and, he’s succeeded admirably if that was his goal.

  24. cleverbob says: Oct 6, 2011 3:14 PM

    Skip Bayless is a clown.

  25. Panda Claus says: Oct 6, 2011 3:14 PM

    Maybe with the Redskins bye week here Cooley will find time to step away from the keyboard and microphone and enjoy some quality time with his lovely wife.

  26. ickky says: Oct 6, 2011 3:14 PM

    Cooley= pond scum

  27. nutitletown says: Oct 6, 2011 3:15 PM

    Hate skip bayless. he a pompous, bird-brained clown. Why would they every put him on TV…..

  28. east96st says: Oct 6, 2011 3:16 PM

    Someone still watches ESPN when a football is not on? Why?

  29. bossyrossy says: Oct 6, 2011 3:16 PM

    F Skip Bayless (and Colin Cowherd for that matter). Hail Captain Chaos.

  30. mempusa says: Oct 6, 2011 3:16 PM

    Skip Bayless is an over-dramatic nancy and Cooley is the man. If you’re a Redskin, you’re supposed to dislike and root against the Cowboys.

    When did football become such a soap opera?

  31. nj22 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:17 PM

    Who cares what a mediocre Tight End who retired 3 years ago has to say?? He did retire 3 years ago right? Surprised a scrub like him gets any press at all. Good for him for trying to seem relevant!

  32. dstep24 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:18 PM

    something a bit hypocritical about Gregg Rosenthal, or anyone at PFT, criticizing people who make mountains out of mole hills.

    “This is coming from a man who holds the world record for lame-brained, knee-jerk, out of bounds, hypocritical sports commentary.”

    Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  34. moronhater16 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:19 PM

    Cooley has about 10 more catches left to his career, he has to get one last segment on ESPN before he is retired…

  35. thanosfan says: Oct 6, 2011 3:19 PM

    Bayless is probably the worst person affiliated with sports in the country. The only reason he says such stupid things is becuase it gets everyone riled up. He can’t believe a fraction of what comes out of his mouth.

  36. zwhateverz says: Oct 6, 2011 3:21 PM

    “This is coming from a man who holds the world record for lame-brained, knee-jerk, out of bounds, hypocritical sports commentary.”

  37. dewalt2990 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:21 PM

    Bayless…. the guy who asked Bobby Carpenter if he thought Romo threw that INT to him on purpose, because theyre friends..that Bayless? turd.

  38. redskincrazy says: Oct 6, 2011 3:21 PM

    Skip Bayless does not understand football rivalries. If he did, he would not have made those comments about Cooley. When you are playing one of your division rivals, you don’t go over a joke with them. You smash them in the mouth on every play of the game. The Redskins should go into every game against the Cowchips with that attitude. And if Cooley wants to make comments like those, then great.

  39. captainwisdom8888 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:22 PM

    Skip Bayless is a weasel and I’m convinced that it is undebatable…it is simply fact. That being said, the media-weasel might as well thank Cooley for speaking out the way he did instead of berating him. COOLEY GAVE YOU A STORY TO REPORT ABOUT.

  40. rwjk says: Oct 6, 2011 3:23 PM

    Cooley is raw. As a Skins fan, I just gained a lot of respect for him. Fight for Old D.C. baby

  41. fcs34 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:24 PM

    Anything Skip Bayless is against I am for. If he wrote an article condemning ethnic cleansing I would actively begin deporting my neighbours.

  42. chas88 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:24 PM

    “Admonishing Cooley like he’s some fourth-grader is a joke.”

    You know what else is a joke? ESPN’s First Take. That show is a trainwreck.

  43. toonsterwu says: Oct 6, 2011 3:26 PM

    For everyone criticizing Cooley’s production – you do realize that, when he is in the game, he is often asked to help out in protection. When they are in two tight end sets, he’s the one that typically delays in going out into his route?

    Has Cooley lost a step? Of course. It’s nature. It’s Father Time. It happens. He still runs fairly well and gets open fairly well. It’s been noted locally, but Rex has missed him a fair amount of times.

    Cooley, though, is the more well-rounded TE. When Fred Davis is in the game, the Redskins chances of running behind Fred consistently is fairly slim. He’s in there as a pass target. As a passing weapon, Davis has probably surpassed Cooley at this stage of his career, but that shouldn’t be a knock on Cooley. Davis has exceptional athleticism that allows him to attack seams in a way Cooley simply can’t anymore. But Cooley is still an above average, well-rounded TE.

  44. waitingguilty says: Oct 6, 2011 3:26 PM

    I’m not on “The Twitter” but if you read Cooley’s post you’ll see @brad_hankins call Cooley some names and threaten to fight him….

    Just for fun I looked at this tool’s Twitter feed. On Sunday, he called for Romo to be cut and for fictional serial killer Dexter Morgan to murder him (Romo).

    Uh…dude…you want to call out Cooley after you wrote that?!?!

    Stay classy Cowboy fans!

  45. ctiggs says: Oct 6, 2011 3:28 PM

    i love cooley for this

  46. The Prophet says: Oct 6, 2011 3:29 PM

    Amen to Cooley. I’m getting tired of people getting so offended by things Brett Favre says about Aaron Rodgers, or things Cooley says about Romo. THIS IS FRIGGIN COMPETITION! This is not ballet, this isn’t exhbition performances for charity, it’s sports played at the highest level for billions of dollars. it’s a Goddman fight on the field and there’s nothing wrong with players talking to each other as if they are in a fight. All players respect each other for putting on the pads every week of course, but as long as they’re not attacking each other’s families or being racist, let ‘em say whatever they want!!!

  48. dequan81 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:31 PM

    Who cares! He’s trash talking, he’s a fan of the Skins. I mean I heard Chris on the radio and he’s been dissing the Cowboys and their players for years, he’s an entertainer not a football player. Rewind back when he claimed he was as good as Jason Witten. Now if that doesn’t discredit your statements, I don’t know what will.

    Instead of standing on the sideline watching the scoreboard and rooting against Tony, maybe he needs to focus on getting back onto the field and getting his job back.

    8 yrs in the NFL 2 Pro Bowls… ok. Who cares about Chris Cooley. BTW, this doesn’t get attention on ESPN or NFL Net…

  49. butternutzz says: Oct 6, 2011 3:32 PM

    “Who cares what a mediocre Tight End who retired 3 years ago has to say?? He did retire 3 years ago right? Surprised a scrub like him gets any press at all. Good for him for trying to seem relevant!”

    NJ22….your an idiot. Cooley is like 7 all time for tightend receptions and he has only been in the league for 8 seasons. Talk about what you know about. Stupid!!!

  50. luckyarmpit says: Oct 6, 2011 3:34 PM

    Cooley’s response to the ridiculous amount of attention his comments generated is HILARIOUS. Glad to see he’s keeping it in perspective, since so many other people are not. I took them for what they were…. someone who was glad to see a division rival perform poorly. He didn’t say he wanted anything BAD to happen to Romo, such as an injury. He was happy that Romo played poorly. I celebrate when Tom Brady plays bad, but I don’t want to see the guy hurt.

    All you Keyboard Cowboys who are threatening Cooley are making me laugh out loud. I guarantee you wouldn’t say those things to him in person.

  51. Land Snark says: Oct 6, 2011 3:37 PM

    “When there is a rare player like Cooley that has a little fun, we kill him for it.”

    Not for nothing, but when you use the term “we”, you admit your complicity in the act.

    Oddly enough you’re moralizing on the other side of the argument.

    It’s not a big deal, but let’s step down from the soap box before you fall.

  52. txtroutslayer says: Oct 6, 2011 3:37 PM

    I’m a cowboy fan and I hate both skip Bayless and Chris Cooley….that said I understand what Cooley means it’s a great rivarly that’s had it share of smack talkers…I still believe however that maybe Cooley should have been out practicing catching passes since he has only caught 7 passes this year then running his mouth on some lame radio show run by X Redskins….I am also willing to bet Chris Cooley would jump at the chance to play for the Dallas Cowboys and catch passes from Tony Romo a much better quarterback then he has ever had on the Redskins that’s for sure. Hell Tashard choice Dallas 2nd string running back has caught more passes then Cooley has this year.

  53. skinsfan87 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:37 PM

    it was all in fun until some twitter gangster started making threats…
    it’s football, there’s been trash talk between the NFC east teams since there was an NFC East!!
    Seriously folks, the media blew this way out of proportion, we all know the Cowboys blow chunks, we didn’t need the media hyping up Romo as superman to point it out to us… enough rambling… Cooley, the redskinsnation got your back, we appreciate your honesty. HTTR!!

    Obviously you have never heard/seen Skip Bayless.

    He hates the Cowboys. EVERYTHING that he has ever written or said about them is negative.

  56. sportsmediacritic says: Oct 6, 2011 3:38 PM

    TO or Ochocinco say the same thing, and they get scolded by the media with righteous indignation. I mean, for crying out loud, Ochocinco said “watching the NE Patriots offense is like watching a video game, its awesome!” and he got KILLLED by the national media.

    Cooley, enjoy your free pass dude.

  57. gorilladunk says: Oct 6, 2011 3:39 PM

    Cooley and his pecan sized pud need to keep it zipped until he actually contributes something. I would have more respect if Cooley had made some wise ass remark after the skins LOST to Romo and the Cowboys less than two weeks ago. By the way, I hope the headline for this posting is correct. Enough of this self-absorbed “legend in his own mind” under achiever.

    Gregg, as you work in the journalism industry, you might want to work on your grammar. When describing decades, you’d write the above, “’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.” An apostrophe-s denotes possession.

  64. nj22 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:49 PM

    By the way No Nuttzz, stop staring at your pic of Cooley’s peewee and check your numbers, he is more like 19th in receptions for tight ends. You know your stuff. Typical uninformed Redskins fan!

  65. sadskinsfan89 says: Oct 6, 2011 3:49 PM

    @jamesmbell. And that has what to do with anything? At all? Funny how the race that wants to eliminate racism are always the first ones to bring it up. Y don’t u worry about the article and football instead of trying to pick out racists. Seems like u have the race problem not pft.

  66. kkickflip says: Oct 6, 2011 3:50 PM

    Skip and pretty much every talking head at ESPN has nothing important to say about anything and has no credibility whatsoever at this point. Their sanctimony and holier than thou attitude when they’re a bunch of melodramatic ego maniacs is enough to make me ignore that channel altogether.

    Yes Cooley is 100% correct what is going wrong in the world today??? Are we to love our enemy and kiss they’re arse??? Too many folks believe in this fantasy world where they teach kids oh no Skip no one loses everybody wins, turn the other cheek, oh you need a timeout… I think Skippy needs to listen to some old sound bites of players from years ago and what they thought and have to day about their opponents…what a wus Skippy is and for all you cowboy fans i’m sure when 11/20 rolls around the Skins D will have Cooley’s back and have Romo on his…that’s if they don’t allow the O-lineman hold Orakpo and Kerrigan….

    You should laugh. Cooley is a clown. From flashing folks on the Internet, to the bleach blond hair. He’s mad that the Cowboys didn’t need to score a touchdown to beat them. Mad that the media doesn’t talk about him. Mad that his job is in serious trouble. Mad that he will never be as great as J.Witt. It’s sad really. I think DWare knows how to wrestle, call him out punk!!!!!!

  74. skinsfaninnebraska says: Oct 6, 2011 4:20 PM

    Bottom line, which all you classy Cowpies fans need to realize, is that Cooley is 100% correct! There is no way Detroit comes back to win that game if Romo doesn’t hand them 14 free points on two consecutive possessions.

    I mean, what elite QB in the history of the NFL has EVER thrown a huge lead away like that? He threw pick-6s on CONSECUTIVE POSSESSIONS!

    Not to forget either what he did with his fumble and INT in the Jets game; the Cowpies would easily be 4-0 without Romo’s horrible mistakes.

  75. howley1 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:20 PM

    Thank you. Cooley goes on from there to point out that it’s not personal with Romo.

    ———————–

    Uhh you start talking about wanting to fight somebody so you can humiliate them, it’s personal. His main problem is that he’s almost irrelevant in his chosen profession at the young age of 29. This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to stay relevant. His game is gone but his mouth still works, obviously.

    But what happens when the Redskins cut him and the Cowboys are looking for somebody to back up Witten and Phillips?

    18-16.

  76. howley1 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:24 PM

    Oh I see how it works, when Bocephus speaks his mind he’s got to suck it up, take the criticism and the consequences, but when Captain Tinydork the Playbook Distributor says something it’s LEAVE MY WASHED UP TIGHT END ALOOOOONE!

  77. howley1 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:28 PM

    I guess, in his own way, he’s trying to re-ignite the intense rivalry/hatred between the Skins and Cowboys and, he’s succeeded admirably if that was his goal.

    ———————————-

    At the end of the day, the Cowboys have still won 20 of the last 27 games. It’s not really a rivalry if one team is constantly getting the snot kicked out of it.

  78. rajbais says: Oct 6, 2011 4:30 PM

    People who develop prejudices to the point where they start blatant smear campaigns are bad for our country!!!

    A guy like Bayless is no different than a racist!!! However, he can’t be one because he actually doesn’t wear a klan hood, but the prejudices that I see through his disgusting rants disturb me!!!

  79. ndallasruss says: Oct 6, 2011 4:30 PM

    I’m a huge Cowboys fan and I applaud Cooley for his comments.

    You’re supposed to root against the other teams and their players. You’re supposed to be glad when your team is winning and the other teams aren’t.

    Similar to the league getting rid of all the big hits, the players are getting too caught up in finding their buddies on the other team after the game so they can hug and chat. I prefer when players are so mad that they just lost that they go straight to the locker room and figure out what just happened.

    As for Skip Bayless. No one in Dallas liked him when he wrote for the local paper. He’s always been a tool that felt like his were the only opinions that were informed or made sense. He should crawl back out to San Jose and be content covering Silicon Valley HS football games.

  80. fordman84 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:33 PM

    As a Cowboy fan, I’m ok with the statements. Just hope that Cooley and all the Skins fans are ready for the Cowboys to have the last laugh, and exploit it in the media, when you once again end up in the cellar after a hot start.

    Skip may be an idiot but he’s making money to be an idiot and I’m sure he makes more than the loser that wrote this lame article. This is by far the worst app I have on my phone for sports coverage please write something relevant

  82. skinsfaninnebraska says: Oct 6, 2011 4:41 PM

    …and Skip Bayless is a twerp.

  83. realdeal12 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:41 PM

    Foreskin fans need to stop drinking the KoolAde.

    You really think Rex is gonna take you anywhere? and who is Cooley anyway isn’t he some other guys backup? When is the last time he did anything noteworthy, beside run his mouth so people will notice him.

    Rats and turds belong together.

    “Admonishing Cooley like he’s some fourth-grader is a joke.”

    Correct. Same for deleting PFT commenters’ posts.
    ____________________________________________

    Agreed. And also apparently not letting commentors use MF’s last name. Try it. I bumped into this rule by accident, responding to a MF post and calling him by name. As far as I can tell, using the name spelled out (correctly) gets the comment filtered out automatically, and drawing attention to it (or doing creative spellings like with multiple spaces) gets your post deleted manually.

    Really? Lame.

    How long will this post last?

    JP2132 than un install the app. Or do you not know how to?

    The Redskins and Cowboys are rivals. They are not suppose to like each other. That is what makes a rivalry. Go ask people that played on the teams in the 80s and see if they liked players on the other team. I can tell you the answer is no. Same goes for the Jets and Dolphins, Raiders and Broncos, Pittsburgh and Cleveland, and Chicago and Greenbay. Back in the day they hated each other. now they are sissy’s just like all the Cowboy fans out there. Including Skippy!

  86. vanilla2 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:54 PM

    All these skins fans taking so much joy in the Cowboys loss. How’d it feel a week earlier?

    18-16…..FAIL

  87. favreforever says: Oct 6, 2011 5:00 PM

    Why the outrage over treating Cooley like a fourth grader? I mean, have you seen him with his pants off?

  88. deadmanwalking47 says: Oct 6, 2011 5:00 PM

    As a Cowboy fan, I’m ok with the statements. Just hope that Cooley and all the Skins fans are ready for the Cowboys to have the last laugh, and exploit it in the media, when you once again end up in the cellar after a hot start.

    Geez are all cowboy fans morons???? who was it that was a favorite to be in and the first to possibly host the super bowl last year…Yes your beloved cowboys and where did they end up??? oh thats right 6-10 same as the Skins so lets not talk about being in the cellar as it was a longer fall for the fakeboys…trust me if Parcells couldn’t win with these dirtbags Garrett surely won’t.

    Skip Bayless is a carnival barker. The only good thing about him is his brother: Rick!

    Skip is just crying because his Cowboys lost.

    ————————

    Obviously you have never heard/seen Skip Bayless.

    He hates the Cowboys. EVERYTHING that he has ever written or said about them is negative.

    Last week he sounded like the biggest cowboys fan on the planet. He practically declared his love for Tony Romo and defended him for over an hour as “not a choker”

    Your right I do not know Skip’s history per se, but last week he sure seemed like a big time Dallas fan.

  92. thompgk says: Oct 6, 2011 5:52 PM

    Chris Cooley is trailer trash.

    He filled Jeremy Shockey’s shoes perfectly when he left the NFC East.

    Would not be surprised if he wears Tap-Out t-shirts.

  93. therealsmiley says: Oct 6, 2011 5:53 PM

  94. occamssabre says: Oct 6, 2011 5:54 PM

    What I find most amazing about Skip Bayless is that he was poo-pooing both Joe Flacco and Mark Sanchez after their Sunday night meeting but absolutely loves him some Tony Romo, even after his total ch- ch- choke against the Lions.

    You know what Flacco and Sanchez have over Romo?

    Playoff Wins!!

    And I guess the skins are going to the superbowl, C’mon son get real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Cowboys should have been in the Superbowl, For the past three years for sure.If not for poor coaching and bad breaks. IT’s easy to highlight somebody else (Romo) mistakes while over looking your owns. The Skins have a no brain(FOOTBALL Brain) owner, A overrated coach (When was he in the playoffs last), Hyped up GM (IS this the guy that supposely built the SuperBowl BUcs?? I thought it was Dungy) and have been The laugh stocks of the NFC East for I dont know how long. Have had a host of freeagent bust. And Rex Grossman as their QB. LOL, Sorry. The Boy’s went 6-10 without Romo, The skins went 6-10 the last couple of years, If not finished last for the past 6 years (give or take). And we’re 1-0 against the skins this year, So classless no my friend, We are in a class of our own!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  96. RomosRibs says: Oct 6, 2011 6:00 PM

    I want to say “Thank You” for the bulletin board material, Cooley. I’d pull against him if I were you, too, but I wouldnt go public with it and make an ace outta myself the way you have JERK.

  97. dccowboy says: Oct 6, 2011 6:12 PM

    So wait, first he wasn’t joking, then he was joking, now he’s back to not joking again?

    this guy does more flip flopping and backwatering than a politician caught in a lie during a debate.

    All I thought when I first read his comments was, “what a clown” and then went on to other things with more importance, like what’s for lunch.

  98. therealsmiley says: Oct 6, 2011 6:22 PM

    Haaaa! We had bad coaching…waaaaa! We should have won the last 3 Super Bowls. What are you talking about? Chris Cooley insulted our QB…waaaaaa! Stop crying. Waaaaaaa! Hai!

    —————————-

    Dude, your cornerback attacked inanimate locker room objects after he gave up a 3rd and 21 catch to a gimpy Dez Bryant and lost the game. Crying does not reach a higher level than that.

  100. howley1 says: Oct 6, 2011 6:45 PM

    You know what Flacco and Sanchez have over Romo?

    Playoff Wins!!

    ———————————–

    Get real. Flacco in particular is a terrible post-season QB. 4 TDs, 7 INTs in 7 games, passer rating of 61.6. Put Romo on that team and the Ravens have at least two more Super Bowl wins. He’s got the same number of playoff TDs and 5 count ‘em 5 fewer playoff INTs.

  101. howley1 says: Oct 6, 2011 6:51 PM

    trust me if Parcells couldn’t win with these dirtbags Garrett surely won’t.

    ——————————-

    You know Wade Phillips basically took Parcells’ guys and won four more games than Parcells could with them. What’s with the Parcells worship, anyway? He wrecked the Cowboys, wrecked the Dolphins, no team that has had him involved in any capacity has won a playoff game since after the 1998 season.

  102. therealsmiley says: Oct 6, 2011 6:54 PM

    Cause you were in the locker room right? Waaaaaaaaaa!

  103. jagerbmb says: Oct 6, 2011 7:33 PM

    ESPN should have fired Skip and kept Hank

  104. bangitfootball says: Oct 6, 2011 7:51 PM

    Didnt Chris Cooley retire a couple of years ago lol

  105. crussell75 says: Oct 6, 2011 8:52 PM

    No problem at all with Cooley showing Romo some love. It’s great for the game, and it’s great for the rivalry. I’m not sure when the NFL teams decided to get so overly-friendly with each other on the football field. You see it all the time – smiling faces, ass slapping, high-fiving, etc. C’mon man! Can’t you just hate each other for 60 minutes. You really should want to introduce your blunt fist to the face of your opponent, should you?

  106. crussell75 says: Oct 6, 2011 8:54 PM

    shouldn’t you? -I meant

  107. brownwood26 says: Oct 6, 2011 9:07 PM

    Great post, Rosenthal…anybody who has a problem with what Cooley said has a problem with themselves. If you’ve ever read his blog, you know how he rolls…and he’s nowhere near as bad (or as constant) as Rex Ryan.

    As for Bayless…he’s so far in the tank for Dall-ass that instead of blaming Romo for the Jets loss, he blamed Witten for not scoring on the long pass play that set up the goal line fumble by Romo. Seriously. If that guy is hating on Cooley for acting like a “lame-brained, knee-jerked fan”, then that’s hypocrisy at its absolute highest level…

  108. rajbais says: Oct 6, 2011 9:08 PM

    Rosenthal, we actually agree for once; Bayless is an idiot!!!!

  109. yeahyeahyeahbono14 says: Oct 7, 2011 12:46 AM

    Skip Bayless sucks.

    Sean Salisbury wears granny panties.

  111. londonfletcher says: Oct 7, 2011 7:25 AM

    “Cooley and his pecan sized pud need to keep it zipped until he actually contributes something. I would have more respect if Cooley had made some wise ass remark after the skins LOST to Romo and the Cowboys less than two weeks ago. By the way, I hope the headline for this posting is correct. Enough of this self-absorbed “legend in his own mind” under achiever.”

    Are you kidding me?? “Contribute’s something”?? Chris Cooley is one of the main reasons the Skins won Any games between the 2006 and the 2009 seasons. With a joke of an o-line getting to the qb on almost every snap, he was the go to guy.

    He’s just had it rough since he broke his ankle. Now he’s having to have his knee drained after every game. He hasn’t been 100% for quite a while now.
