Chris Cooley’s Dropped TD Pass Was An Epic FAIL! (Video)
Despite earning the victory, yesterday afternoon’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars was one that Chris Cooley will definitely want to forget. The Redskins’ tight end had recorded only one touchdown in his previous ten games heading into week 16, but it appeared as though he had his fourth touchdown of the season placed right in the palm of his hands. Unfortunately, it seemed as though Cooley’s pre-game ritual may have consisted of dipping his hands in a pool of butter.
On a first-and-goal play from the Jags’ one-yard line, the Redskins went with play-action, leaving Rex Grossman with a wide open Cooley in the back of the end zone. Grossman delivered a perfect ball to Cooley, but the 7-year veteran couldn’t hold onto it. One the very next play, Grossman went to his back-up tight end, Fred Davis, who had no problems hanging on to what may have been the greasiest ball Cooley has ever played with.
The drop in the end zone was just one of many dropped balls for Cooley on the day, but it will undoubtedly be the one that you will see on bloopers packages for weeks to come.
