Found September 13, 2012 on Busted Coverage:

Poor Chris Cooley. In a matter of 30 days his life has become a complete mess. He lost his NFL job in August when the Redskins cut him and now, according to the Washington Post, he’s getting a divorce from his ex-Redskins cheerleader wife, Christy. Once known as the godfather of NFL social media, Cooley is jobless and hasn’t used his Twitter account @thecooleyzone since March.

Now 30, Cooley is just a broken down ex-NFLer who will owe his ex-wife a chunk of money for their four-year marriage. He didn’t have a pre-nup.

The divorce, filed Aug. 29 in Loudoun County, has been in the works for months: The couple separated in January and, despite having no pre-nup, we’re told, have already hammered out a settlement deal.

“Both Christy and Chris worked hard to be reasonable with each other so they could settle this matter without litigation,” said her lawyer, Lindsay Hendrix. “They are both to be credited for reaching a resolution that permits their private lives to remain private.”

From what we can see of Christy’s Facebook account, it seems she isn’t having trouble rebounding from the divorce. Just 27, she has plenty of good years left to find another NFLer.

RG3: 'Griffining' is 'pretty funny'

Robert Griffin III says ''Griffining'' is ''pretty funny.'' It's the 2012 answer to ''Tebowing.'' The ''Grifining'' pose was born during the rookie's first NFL touchdown pass in the Washington Redskins' 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Griffin was hit while throwing the ball, then sat up...

Washington Redskins at St. Louis Rams NFL Week 2 Preview

Robert Griffin III was the first rookie ever to throw for over 300 yards and 2 or more TD without throwing an interception. RGIII certainly is capable of becoming a future Pro Bowler, but the talent around may decide his fate at Washington. There are a bevy of decent backs and receivers to allow RGIII to succeed, but everybody needs to relax about this future stud becoming a current...

Week 2: five fantasy things to know

1. Only the Desperate should Invest in Morris as a Starter Redskins running back Alfred Morris seems to be generating as much discussion in the fantasy football world as anyone. As a (for now) starting running back for Mike Shanahan coming off a 28-carry, two-touchdown game in Week 1, it's easy to understand why heads are turning. Morris doesn't have much speed at all...

Washington Redskins at St. Louis Rams: Week 2 NFL Pick

Washington Redskins (1-0) at St. Louis Rams (0-1) I had the Rams as one of my underrated teams coming into the season. They improved 6 games in 2010, but, as could have been predictable, regressed 5 games last year. Teams that have a large improvement in win total typically regress the following season and vice versa. They should bounce back this year. Teams that regress 5 games...

Week 2 NFL Picks Cautiously High on RG3, Looking Forward to Monday's 'Gravity Bowl' (Podcast)

OK, so Week 1 could have gone a little bit better, but that's why there are 17 of these. The NFL picks podcast got off to a rough 7-9 start in Week 1, but that's to be be expected. After all, what can you really expect out of anyone in Week 1? One team that took the podcast -- and a lot of others by surprise -- was the play of Robert Griffin III and the rest of the...
