I would like to take a lighter approach to Chris Cooley, and ask him some questions that hopefully he has not answered thousands of times, and would be interesting to Cooley fans all of the NFL.

1.)    I think everybody playing football or wanting to play football wants to hook up with the hottest cheerleader on the squad. You did that! Does that hook up help round out your fantasies as a football player?

2.)    What do you say to all the kids who play in a school, that’s not well known like the Utah States of the College football world?

3.)    Who was your idol as kid? I don’t mean football I mean writing? You love to blog, who do you envision yourself as a writer?

4.)    Is there a book deal in the future?

5.)    What’s the craziest thing that has ever crossed your mind while playing a football game, NFL or College? And be truthful!

6.)    You have a great personality! What are your goals for youth participation in football, and how do you plan to use your influence to achieve that goal?

7.)    What coach or teacher influenced you the most in life and why?

8.)    After football, do you plan on pursuing your acting career?  Do you think you could be the next Tom Cruise?

9.)    What does the Cooley family do for fun, when the TV cameras are off, the blogs are silent, and you’re not filming a high quality movie?

10.)  Last but not least, tell Redskin nation how you feel about the fan base, and what the crowd does to inspire the football team.



The questions I would ask would be of a lighter nature. I know that the guys get hammered all day long about the X’s and O’s of football, but most people do not care to cover their aspirations and long term goals.

Chris Cooley is a fan favorite of the Washington Redskins, and will continue to be so as long as he wants to be.

I think his rise from a smaller College to the elite ranks of the NFL is a testament unto its self, and Cooley does not need to asked questions about how to play the game! I think he already knows how!
