Cooley as handyman and artist

Posted by Ross Hollebon on May 17, 2014 – 6:27 pm

Screen Shot 2014-05-17 at 6.05.23 PMChris Cooley, former Washington Redskins tight end and current radio analyst, was keeping busy inside Redskins Park on Saturday as rookies were outside for the second mini-camp practice of the day.

As LB Trent Murphy, OL Morgan Moses, OL Spencer Long and the rest of draft class and undrafted rookies worked to get things in order and understand the Redskins way, Cooley was in the ESPN 980 Radio studio – tearing things apart.

He and two friends removed some studio foam tiles off a portion of the largest wall – space Cooley will use to paint a mural in the coming days – and began the process of sanding, patching, and priming the walls for the next Cooley creation.

Check out the video below to see some of the initial prep work done today and we’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date as the room is put back together and decorated as only Cooley can.

Back In The Day Alex Ovechkin Shared His Redskins Jersey With Nicklas Backstrom

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 5, 2014 – 2:10 pm

Ovie1

Down the jersey rabbit hole we go.

On Wednesday the DC Sports Bog directed me to this article from Dick’s Sporting Goods about reigning NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin’s jersey collection.

“I have LeBron and am going to get Kobe and Michael Jordan,” Ovechkin said. “I also have RG3 and Chris Cooley ones.”

 

After a little digging through the archives in this space, I found images from 2008 and 2009 that verify at least one item in the closet of the Washington Capitals captain.

Kevin Harlan Realized Cooley’s Dream

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 4, 2014 – 12:00 pm

Chris Cooley

Chris Cooley squeezed in a wish for Kevin Harlan, asking one favor from the veteran NFL voice in an ESPN980 interview from Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row last week.

“All I ever wanted to do was score a touchdown in the Super Bowl. I never got it,” Cooley said. “Can I paint a picture? We’re on the 25-yard line, and I just want to hear your voice say that Cooley scores.”

Harlan, who will call his fourth straight Super Bowl for Westwood One, obliged. Click on the 10:35 mark to hear Harlan call the play that hands Washington a fantasy radio land Lombardi trophy.

This brings new meaning to fake it ’til you make it.  Read more »

Chick Hernandez And The Greatest Afros In Redskins History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 16, 2014 – 4:04 pm

Chick

I have no doubts CSN Washington anchor Chick Hernandez rises in the morning and likes what he sees in the mirror.

Chick is confident man in a profession of confident men. If he didn’t like what he saw, he probably wouldn’t put it on camera. But maybe some mornings he looks at his closely cropped hair and remembers what was with a pang of nostalgia.

There was a time, a golden age for anchormen, when Chick’s head sprouted hair so abundant it would make Pam Grier weep.  Read more »

‘Everyone Likes’ Sean McVay

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 15, 2014 – 11:35 am

McVay_Action

Jay Gruden wasn’t ready to commit to Sean McVay right away, but on Wednesday the Redskins confirmed what has been reported since the head coach’s first day in Washington.

The Redskins announced McVay will be promoted from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator.

Last night on The Drive with Cooley and Czabe on ESPN980, Chris Cooley effusively supported the 27-year old coach. Read more »

Let’s take a look back at Reed’s breakout campaign and compare it to a few other impressive rookies throughout Redskins history.

Chris Cooley: Jay Gruden ‘Down To Earth’ And Good For Robert Griffin III

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 13, 2014 – 12:04 pm

D51U9370

In nine seasons with the Redskins, tight end Chris Cooley played under Joe Gibbs, Jim Zorn and Mike Shanahan. In his first season as an analyst for ESPN 980, the Redskins Radio Network and the Redskins Broadcast Network, Cooley provided an insider’s perspective throughout the final year of the Shanahan regimeCooley arrived at Redskins Park last Thursday with some time to kill before interviewing Gruden on-air after a press conference to introduce the 29th head coach of the franchise.

Cooley briefly met Gruden before the coach’s hectic media tour. Afterward, I sat down with Cooley for a one-on-one interview to get his early impressions of the new head coach. (The following interview has been edited and condensed).

Gabe Hiatt: What are your impressions of this move and this fit with Jay Gruden?

Chris Cooley: I’m excited because I feel like all the pieces that Bruce (Allen) wants are currently here. I’ve been a believer in Bruce since the minute he walked in the door. I think he understands people well. I think he understands players well. He knows who to bring in. My trust in that, and his relationships with everyone in the football world are so high. I think it’s an exciting time. You have everyone on the same page with Bruce, with Jay, with the scouting department now… You have a completely synched organization. That’s something we really haven’t had since I’ve been here. Read more »
