I'm also tired of seeing Banks making poor KR/PR decisions, including running the PR out of the end zone this week and being stuffed inside the 10. These poor decisions plus his fumbles have far outweighed the few returns he has broken for significant yardage.

Nothing against Paulsen but I'd like to see Cooley get a few touches. He's made some nice blocks, but with his hands I would think he'd be a great outlet receiver for RG3.


As slow as Cooley is now, what makes you think he is a better option than Paulsen?? You do realize that Paulsen is bigger, faster and stronger than Cooley right? I think we should let Cooley go, he has done nothing to warrant playing time and is still SLOW AS MOLASSES GOING UP HILL IN DECEMBER......Captain Chaos is long dead.........

God, I'm glad you aren't part of the FO. This franchise owes CC a debt, and I would keep him on the team the rest of the year, regardless. BTW, have you ever seen Paul or Paulsen attemp to block? TEs have to do that sometimes. :roll:

I think it's safe to say all of our TE's have blocking issues or we'd be seeing Cooley more often.

Being in the front office in the NFL is sometimes a very cut throat business. We don't "owe" Colley anything.

I agree with you on that, but we do owe Cooley a chance to be part of our SuperBowl run. :up:

AND - I'm not sure how having Cooley on the roster is hurting us for the rest of this season


Cooley has earned a rep for being a clutch player and he plays every down with desire - we should be so lucky

Well, it's been hitting Pittsburgh and Philly pretty hard this year. I'd say that's a good start.

Maybe we gave it to them . . .

On the flip side, I don't see how having Cooley on the roster is helping us at this point either.

It makes sense to have a 3rd TE on roster. Who would you prefer?

And he's a core Redskin, unlike this Colley guy FLWSkin says we don't owe anything.

Sorry if my mistyping of a letter upset you. I have just never felt players are "owed" anything. They are very well overpaid for their services. It doesn't matter if he is a so-called "core Redskin", if he can't play anymore, which it is obvious Cooley can't, then he shouldn't be on the team. Now I get that he is here because he knows the system and that is about the only reason. I also know the only reason he is on the team is because Davis is hurt. Riggo was a core Redskin too and he was cut. So were all of them. That is the nature of the game.

Yes, I am incredibly upset by your lack of typing skill. I might just quit this board, and never come back.

I don't think that's as obvious as you do, since he's currently on the team. And another reason he is on the team, is because he refused to play anywhere else. It doesn't get more core than that. So, obviously (to me and the team, anyway) it does matter.

What teams did he refuse to play for?
