Redskins’ tight end Chris Cooley is no fan of Tony Romo. That’s not surprising, because well, he’s a Redskin. He once made a video with then-reserve Redskins’ quarterback Colt Brennan--who, our sources at Wikipedia tell us, was last seen with the Hartford Colonials--mocking Romo and tight end Jason Witten, and then published it on his blog. He also once took a photo of his junk, and unwittingly posted it on the same blog--this last one has nothing to do with Romo or the Cowboys. It's just still kind of funny.
Anyway, Cooley, who has seven catches for 66 yards and no touchdowns on the year, took special joy in watching the Cowboys--and Romo in particular--collapse against the Detroit Lions last Sunday, a joy that he then shared with the guys on the LaVar and Dukes Show, a DC radio show.
“It’s so good,” Cooley said, via 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, amazing to 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. 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.”
Ah, yes, the cage fighting. Apparently in reference to an earlier discussion, Cooley then ventures a guess as to how a cage fight between he and the significantly smaller Romo might turn out.
“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.”
In case you were wondering, the Redskins and Cowboys next meet on November 20. Dallas handed Washington their only loss of the season two weeks ago.
