Washington tight end Chris Cooley spoke about the process of picking up the Mike and Kyle Shanahan-run offense and the adjustment he and other receivers are going through in working with new quarterback Donovan McNabb.
Entering his seventh year in Washington, where there have been several coaching changes, Cooley is no stranger to new systems. He has been impressed, however, with how offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is instructing the team.
"As far as the offense I've really been impressed with the way they've coached it," Cooley said. "There's a lot of volume, it's the NFL so you expect that, but the way we've utilized time in the classroom, the way Coach [Kyle] Shanahan has coached it with a lot of film study instead of just black and white on paper has been really impressive, I've really enjoyed that."
Seems like a pretty good bet veterans Cooley and McNabb will be a solid fantasy connection, and Cooley may benefit the most. Tight end is pretty deep fantasy-wise these days, but Cooley could be in store for a nice year.
