Chris Cooley’s Sunday In Philadelphia

Redskins Broadcast Network/ESPN 980 personality Chris Cooley didn’t take the team flight up to Philadelphia this weekend and it nearly forced him to heed the assistance of Eagles fans.

Rushing up to the Linc hours before the start of the game, Cooley entered the stadium in a blur, hurrying to get some last-minute prep in before the Redskins’ third divisional game of the season.

When he came back out of the stadium shortly after the conclusion of the game Cooley noticed his car lights were still on.

Uh-oh!

Cooley explained the situation on Monday.

On Wednesday, former Denver Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey joined The Drive with Cooley and Czabe on ESPN 980 to talk Mike Shanahan.

McCaffrey joined Shanahan in a move from San Francisco to Denver following the 1994 season, having his greatest success in the Mile High City.

Under Shanahan’s tutelage, McCaffrey accumulated 6,200 receiving yards, 46 touchdowns and of course two Super Bowl victories in nine seasons.

He spoke in-depth about Shanahan’s high football IQ and ability to get the most out of his players.

Cooley On Reed’s Play, Comparrison

If there’s ever been a day for Jordan Reed news, today is the day. Just 48 hours removed from the best game of his fledgling NFL career, Reed has found a way into every single one of my posts and as we continue to look back on the game that was, you can’t help but feel excitement when thinking about the kid’s potential.

Reed notched a career-high 134 yards and touchdown on only nine catches. Each and every day the team’s decision to draft a tight end in the third round (scrutinized due to belief that it wasn’t a position of need) looks better and better.

Reed set a franchise rookie tight end record with his 134 yards, surpassing greats Chris Cooley and Jerry Smith in the process. On Monday, Cooley’s praise of Reed continued on Monday Morning Redskins Roundup exclusively on Redskins.com.

Cooley’s Take On Offense’s Performance

No sleep can do a lot of things to the human body.  I know for myself personally, it means a lot of coffee drinking, the subsequent consequences of drinking multiple cups of jo and rubbing of the eyes over and over again.

For former Washington Redskins tight end and current ESPN 980 radio personality Chris Cooley, it means an amplification of his team pride and a great soundbite on Monday Morning Redskins Roundup, heard every day following a game at 9am on Redskins.com.

Chris Cooley Talks Rivalry

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 12, 2013 – 8:00 am

(AP)

(AP)

In nine years as a Redskin, Chris Cooley’s hatred for the Cowboys intensified, eventually honing into a beautiful thing like, say, a well-crafted ceramic vase. The former tight end and current ESPN980 personality gave me a few minutes of time during a radio break Friday to talk about what disgusts him about the Dallas franchise and what he sees for the future of the rivalry.

Gabe Hiatt: In your third game as a pro, you played against Dallas at home. How were you indoctrinated into the rivalry?

Chris Cooley: It takes a while because you get that there’s the rivalry, but until you start to know their players and know their fans and really look at what that team stands for, you don’t buy into the rivalry. In Year One it was the idea that everyone said, ‘It doesn’t matter what you do this year, just beat Dallas twice.’ You start to learn that’s what people say every year. And beating Dallas twice has such a serious feel to everyone involved. But then you start looking at their fans and the way they look at our team. Cowboys fans think the Redskins are garbage, which is funny to me because they’ve been garbage as long as we hadn’t made the playoffs as well. And you start looking at their players and the way, to me, they’ve always seemed to play with an arrogance of ‘we’re better than anyone else’ when they’re really not. After about a year and a half it was like, if I was going to beat one team every year it would be the Cowboys without a doubt. Again, lastly it just goes to that idea that they really believe they’re America’s team. They have no doubt that they’re the team that everyone loves and that they’re the pretty boys of America and the pretty boys of football, and they play like it.

GH: You had a three touchdown game against the Cowboys in your second year. Did that mean anything more coming against that team?

Chris Cooley’s Sleepless Radio Transition

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 10, 2013 – 4:23 pm

What happens when you cross a tight end that spent a lifetime of fall weekends physically applying himself to be the best player and teammate that he could be with his current job as a radio broadcaster?

A whole lot of sheep being counted while lying in bed.

For nine years Chris Cooley spent a living breaking down game film in hopes of finding holes in opposing defense,  and boy would he.

While he may be doing the same now for ESPN980, he isn’t speaking on a microphone through a helmet nor is he walking on the freshly waxed floors inside the radio booth at FedExField with football cleats on.

Cooley admitted this morning on “Monday Morning Redskins Roundup” with Chris Russell that he struggled catching Z’s last night after his first regular season game as a radio broadcaster.

Chris Cooley Stays True To Roots

Last night when the Denver Broncos soundly defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the season opener, those who picked them in season predictions to make a deep playoff run were giving themselves pats on the back over and over again.

Has somebody checked Chris Cooley’s back this morning? Cooley, Redskins legend and current radio analyst on “The Drive with Cooley and Czabe” heard weekdays from 4-7 on ESPN980 along with “Cooley’s Corner” on game days, tweeted out his hand drawn playoff prediction featuring the Broncos and this team:

A Closer Look At Chris Cooley The ‘Potter’

Posted by Chris Herting on April 23, 2013 – 2:11 pm

cooley-gallery

In continuing our trend of checking in to see how Redskins players, past and present, are spending their offseason, we’re going to take a look at free agent tight end Chris Cooley.

Cooley has been a staple of the Redskins organization for just over nine years. He is the Redskins’ all-time leader for receptions by a tight end (428), a fan-favorite among many crowds, a leader in the locker room, a spokesperson in the fight against breast cancer, and an experienced potter. He’s an all-around good football player and good leader; the kind of guy you would want your daughter to date.

Alexander Prepared For First Pro Bowl Trip

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 24, 2013 – 5:09 pm

Alexander Pro Bowl

Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander understands that the key to success is through preparation.  Throughout the offseason he prepares himself to be stronger and faster than the year before. During the season, he prepares himself to be the best player on gameday.

And when he finishes off a career year that leads the NFL in special teams tackles, he solicits advice on how to be ready for his first career Pro Bowl.

The first person he talked to was teammate London Fletcher, who will be joining Alexander for his fourth-straight trip to the Pro Bowl. Like Alexander, Fletcher was snubbed until later in his career, when he finally got the respect from his peers to make the trip to Hawaii.

But that’s about where the respect element ends, at least as far as hotel room charges in concerned. Read more »
