Chris Cooley Drops Wide Open Touchdown Catch

Chris Cooley has been vocal in recent weeks on his radio show about his lack of targets prior to the fourth quarter, and lack of targets in goalline situations. This week he got both on the Redskins' second drive of the game against the Jaguars. Unfortunately for Cooley, he didn't quite make the most of it.

Following a penalty in the end zone that gave the Redskins a first and goal from the 1-yard line, Cooley found himself wide open. No, really. He couldn't have been more open. It was a playaction fake called specifically for the tight end. Rex Grossman did his job well to put the ball right in Cooley's numbers. But before Redskins fans could finish high-fiving their friends, the ball was suddenly on the ground.

Perhaps Cooley was too busy plotting his Peanut Butter Jelly Time touchdown celebration?

The good news is that the Redskins scored on the very next play. A similar call resulted in a Grossman touchdown pass to second-string tight end Fred Davis. Hmm... Any irony in Davis making the catch when Cooley couldn't?
