Chris Cooley is all the way back from his leg injury

Since the beginning of training camp, Pro Bowl tight end Chris Cooley has shown no lingering effects from the injury that cut short his 2009 season.

Cooley had a team-high six catches for 80 yards against Dallas last week, and Coach Mike Shanahan has known for many months that Cooley would be in top form to start the season.

"To be honest with you, I could see that through the OTA days," Shanahan said. "I knew he was in good shape. He just had to get back to football shape. It didn't take him long.

"Once we started summer camp, you could see Chris was full speed ahead. Great football shape, great awareness and each day he feels more comfortable with this system and the offense.  He's really a sharp guy."

"Thomas has not been in the team's plans on offense since late in the preseason because, for the most part, he has not impressed the coaches with his overall approach toward his work. "---RI


Didn't someone have isssues wehn I referred to this underachiever as a "knucklehead."

Sometimes people get it latter rather than sooner. With the weakness at receiver opposite Moss, it is necessary that Thomas improve the "overall qapproach" of his work NOW.

when not wehn, later not latter and "approach," not qapproach."

Other than that, not a bad post. It's early here on the Left Coast.

Could DT11 possibly give us less than Galloway and Roydell did the first game? Seriously. You can only improve so much running with the 2nd or 3rd team in practice. How many reps do you think those guys get during the week? This is asinine.

If DT11 was going to succeed he would be doing so by now. Don't you think, in his third year? The rest of the young receivers in his class are now doing their thing, IE; D. Jackson, M. Austin, M Manningham and others. If you got it you got it and you will prove it early on. I think we've wasted enough time on both DT11 and MK12. Let 'em both go.

You don't think playing with QB's like Rivers, Romo, and Manning instead of JC made a difference in their development. Besides Armstrong DT11 and T. Austin were the best looking WR's in preseason. Neither is playing. What's the point of preseason if the players who look good don't get a chance to play?

Also I'm not saying DT11 is a star in the making. I'm saying his output probably wouldn't be any worse than what we will see from Galloway and Roydell so what do we have to lose.

===============================

I'm not going to argue about comparing him to J Galloway or R Williams, I just assume the coaches think that (J Galloway, R Williams) are playing better than DT11 in practice.

I'm just saying, DT11 should be showing some consistency by now if he was going to. He should be "standing out" over all the other receivers in practice, if he was any good, except maybe SM89, instead of being the "potential threat". The "Potential crap is getting kinda old. He's been catching passes from McNabb and Grossman for months now and they're both as good as Eli or TR9, in my opinion anyway.

Oh, DeShaun Jackson done well last year with McNabb at QB, I don't know why you threw Rivers in there.
