Cofield Sack Dance Will Live On In NYC

Defensive tackle Barry Cofield confirmed the worst-kept secret in Ashburn yesterday: he’s excited to play his former team on Sunday.

“Yeah, I’m excited, I’m excited,” he said, trying to conceal a huge smile.  “Like I’ve said, I’m definitely looking forward to it. Obviously coming to a new defense, I had a lot to learn during training camp. So I had to balance the two and I had to put my excitement on hold.”

I can confirm that the excitement is no longer on hold.

Cofield played at defensive end for the Giants for six years before bringing his talents to the Nation’s Capital, and has nothing but respect for his old teammates.

“I’ve always stayed in contact with my friends that I played with, y’know, those relationships go past just teammates on the football field,” he said.  “It’s a weird sense of familiarity, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to what we do.”

After yesterday’s media conference call with Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, it’s clear that the respect is mutual, despite Cofield jetting for a division foe.

“He’s just a solid guy and I hate to see him go,” he said.

Tuck also gave Cofield positive reviews on his position move from end to nose tackle.

“I talked to Barry during camp and I think he feels pretty comfortable with playing nose He can multi-task. He can play the nose, two-gap, three-gap or whatever. I know he’s going to help the [Redskins] football team at that position.”

But Tuck did assure the media, that if he gets a sack on Sunday, Redskins fan will have visions of Barry Cofield’s sack dance:

“I’m just going to try to make sure I do a sack dance before he does,” Tuck said with a laugh.  “Everybody knows about it, he has one of the most famous dances out there. I’m on Twitter every day and people always ask me, ‘Are you going to do Barry Cofield’s sack dance?'”

No Twitter confirmation on that, but it sounds like Tuck intends to show it off, if given the opportunity on Sunday.

Appropriate Redskins hashtag: #notgonnahappen.
