Let's check in with The Cooley Zone

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Redskins tight end Chris Cooley's blog had always been a must-read for me until he started (accidentally) posting male body parts. I took a few days off, but I'm happy to report that Cooley's returned to his bread and butter.

He does a great job describing some of the key plays from Sunday's 24-17 win over the Cardinals, and it's fun to see references to "Z man" and "JC."

"I was stoked to make the catch at the end of the game," Cooley said. "I love that Z man will get after defenses with the game on the line. When JC called the play in the huddle, I looked at the O-Line promising them I would get the first down. Before the play started I knew there would be no one in the flat, they lined up with a safety in the middle of the field so the corner on my side was going to have to run off with the receiver. I have to give a run-fake on the linebacker who had me in man coverage and he bit hard down inside. It was actually a tough throw for J who had to roll to his left and squirm his body around to get me the ball. Once it was in my hands I knew the game was over, but I was trying to score. No Brian Westbrook here, I was going for the end zone. I mean, I already gave up my fantasy points to Yods! Really, I was just so happy we could finish off another one."

That Brian Westbrook reference goes back to last December, when the Eagles running back sacrificed a touchdown in order to ice a victory against the Cowboys at Texas Stadium. For those of you who have been hiding under loose impediments, "JC" is Jason Campbell and "Z man" is Redskins head coach Jim Zorn.

I'll be interviewing Campbell at about 12:15 p.m. ET tomorrow. If you need me to ask him something, now's the time to speak up. I'm also planning to spend about 15 minutes interviewing Tony Sparano this afternoon in case anyone's interested. You'll be able to hear the audio on Tim Graham's AFC East blog.
