The other Cooley zone

Drop the snowshovel, grab the coffee and hang out with us today. There's stuff to look at and read and discuss and, like such as, maps.

Annys Shin writes in the Post magazine on how Tanner Cooley (I believe you're familiar with his brother's work) is stepping out of Chris' shadow. Tanner will be online for a chat at noon Monday, so send him questions.

Why do we care?

7 inches of snow with another 10-16 inches to fall, and blizzard like conditions because of the wind before it's over. I sure hope Cindy that you're able to keep us entertained today.

Snyder haters (you know who you are) can take some satisfaction from a story in today's Wall Street Journal.

When Six Flags declared bankruptcy, the shareholders lost control of the company to the debt holders. Snyder had put together a package under which he would still be Chairman of the Board as the debt holders took control of the company. Apparently the biggest debt holder balked and it wants to throw Snyder out completely. Not only would he not be Chairman of the Board, he wouldn't even have a seat on the board. The article estimates that Snyder and his investment partners (Cerrato was one) lost about $50 million. As one analyst said, "They lost a bunch of money. It's nothing to brag about."

Good news for Redskins fans? Not at all. He has more time now to run the show:

"A person close to Mr. Snyder said he would 'seriously consider' remaining board chairman if asked, but remains torn on continuing the role. Lately he has been focused on the Redskins, having just replaced his top personnel executive amid a disappointing season."

Come on, Cindy, pay attention. Chris Cooley's brother is so 2008. 2009 is the year of Fred Davis's brother.

2010? That will be the year of George Allen's brother.

I've been on the road, so I haven't read all the comments from yesterday and thursday, but I hope Allen gives JZ the opportunity to finish his contract. it would make sense since Gruden wants to stay in TV at least one more year, and if JZ still doesn't show serious progress next year, then bring in Gruden or whoever. JZ and JC just might be the long term answers with Allen's work to rebuild this roster from the inside out.

I being very much anticipating the arrival of Mike Shanahan and company ever since Bruce Allen joined the team. Then last night I started thinking..what if. What if over the next three weeks, Bruce finds that the coaching staff in place has a firm understanding of where this program is going? What if he likes how the team team is preparing and playing under the new delegated duties of the HC and his staff? Finally, what if Mike Shanahan tries to leverage the Skins and the Cowboys against each other? IF that happens, it wouldn't surprise me to see him retain JZ and staff. IF the staff moves the team forward, then that's great. If they falter, again, then there is always John Gruden out there.

Why did they cut off the video just as it was getting interesting????

The Snow is falling and we are going to get a ton.


I think Zorn is gone no matter what, if they can't get Shanny they will go after someonbe else. The team is playing good inspite of Zorn not because of him.

"The other Cooley zone"

"Annys Shin writes in the Post magazine on how Tanner Cooley is stepping out of Chris' shadow."

Someone explain to me why I am supoosed to care that Tanner Cooley is taking a shower in his brother's sweat?


Too many people are getting famous because of what some other cat is doing, and not because they have talent.

Just what is Tanner Cooley's talent?

Did he crash a White House party?

Is he the first president from hawaii?

Has he been on tv longer than "The Simpsons"?

Did he lie and say his kid was in a balloon that floated away?

Is there youtube video of him dressed up as a cat playing the piano?

Is he displayed on the back of some milk carton with the phrase "Have You Seen Me?" slapped above his forehead?

Does he look like a poster worker in drag while singing with British accent for Simon Cowell?

Did he sleep with Tiger Woods?

If he did, now that might be something work reading about.

That, as we have come to find out, requires skill.

And talent.
