Cooley Film Breakdown: Week 17 vs. Cowboys

Posted Jan 5, 2016

Chris Cooley breaks down several plays from last Sunday's win against the Cowboys. Catch up with all of his analysis here.

Chris Cooley breaks down several plays from last Sunday's win against the Cowboys. Catch up with all of his analysis here.



Cooley recognizes a successful screen pass play to Jamison Crowder from the Redskins’ preseason game against the Ravens. It begins with a beautiful play-action fake to the left and ends with a big chunk of yards from Crowder thanks to two big blocks from offensive linemen Brandon Scherff and Morgan Moses, running downfield to pick up two Cowboys defensive backs.


On the Redskins’ touchdown pass to Pierre Garçon, Cooley gets really excited about the way quarterback Kirk Cousins moves in the pocket and keeps his eyes downfield. With pressure in his face, Cousins shifts to his left and extends the play, allowing Garçon to cut back inside on his route for better leverage as he goes to grab the ball.


Cooley goes to another touchdown play, this time to Crowder, who makes an impressive jumping catch on a pass thrown a little high from Cousins. The play, which starts on the Cowboys 5-yard line, uses wide receiver Ryan Grant on a pick route, angling to the inside to let Crowder escape free just above the flat and for an easy walk-in score.


Cooley finishes the offense breakdown with quarterback Colt McCoy’s 71-yard touchdown pass to Rashad Ross. The Cowboys present a quarters-coverage scheme but don’t account for Ross’ speed and account too much for Jamison Crowder’s out-route to pick up a first down. Both cornerbacks bite on Crowder’s route and Ross ends up all alone down the field. 



Flipping his cap around, Cooley talks defense next. He uses a few plays involving wide receiver Cole Beasley, one of them being a touchdown pass, to show how the Redskins defense adapted to familiar schemes and routes. Ultimately, their recognition ends with an interception at the goal line.



“It’s so obvious” the Cowboys want to throw to tight end Jason Witten Cooley says as he dissects linebacker Will Compton’s first quarter interception. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry makes the Cowboys look like “dum-dums,” presenting lots of coverage downfield and giving quarterback Kellen Moore nowhere to throw the ball except to the defense.
