university boulevard. lanes are open out here on the west at 66. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. >> thank you. a pet project for inmates is yielding promising results. the inmates from the patuxent institution planted and cared for hundreds of trees as part of the county's plant it green program. now, 490 of those trees are mature enough to be replanted in howard county parks and other sites around county. the program has planted more than 45,000 trees in the last four years. redskins tight end chris cooley still making headlines, finding himself in the middle of some drama with the cowboys. he explains the comment he made about quarterback tony romo. stay with us. d
time now no say good morning to our facebook fan of the day. it is bella del agua. she says her entire family including her dog hunter starts the day with fox 5 morning news. they think talker is awesome. fine us on facebook by searching fox 5 morning news. no space between fox and the number five and then post a comment under bella's photo to be our facebook fan of the day. so we talked about it a
little bit yesterday about chris cooley making national headlines for the comments he made on 106.7 the fan. he said he enjoyed watching tony romo and the cowboys choke against the lions. now, aafter greating praised and taking some heat, chris is clarifying his take on tony romo. >> i would expect players of the cowboys to want us to lose. i clearly expect cowboys fans to want us to play poorly. from my twitter feed, i know the absolute amount that they despise me so it headaches makes the game fun. ments the entertainment business. it make you root for your team and care about your players more. >> safe to say the next meeting between the two teams in week 11 will be rather interesting. joining us now, the sports junkies from 106.7 the fan. good morning. >> hello. >> you will be talking with chris. why is this even a big deal? i don't understand it. it seems to me every playering
thinking this. he just happened to say it. >> we're excite because chris cooley will join us in studio tomorrow starting at 7:30 and be here throughout the show after that. that is pretty cool of him to take his time to do that during the bye week. i don't have a problem with him yapping about tony romo. it is a division rivalry. the teams do not like each other. they haven't for a long time and he is just voicing what everybody has seen over the past few weeks. tony romo in pressure situations, this season he is personal lyric not coming up big. >> he has given away two games and if you know krause kris or you heard him talk as most people in d.c. have, he just goofs around. he is lighthearted, good dude. he is funny. he likes to mess with everybody. i guarantee you romo is not taking this serious. no one else should. >> i like t i like that, as a fan, you want to hear the plays are get after each other. i think you want to hear them come out and say t i don't have a problem with it and i'm not quite sure why people do. >> i like it more than the hightower yapping about going to the super bowl or rex
talking about winning the nfc east. this i think, like jason said, a little more playful and that is just what chris cooley's personality is. we've seen that as long as he's been here. >> i'm willing to bet that tony romo will choke again before the redskins make it to the super bowl. >> air probably right. >> that is a good bet. let's talk a little bit too about the college game right now. maryland, all the focus has been on the uniforms this year. every wednesday, it is a show to reveal the uniforms. do we still care about the uniforms or do we need to focus on the team? >> i think the uniforms are getting downplayed. i don't see as much hype about. it the first oneful games, i can understand it. but now, you have to look at the fact that they got drummed by temple at home. they struggled with towson in the first half though they pulled away in the second half. now, the focus has to be on the fact that they are facing some tough teams. they have to take on georgia tech, florida state, clemson. the focus is on the product on the field instead of what those
guys are wearing. >> new coaches in transition especially with teams without a lot of talent, clearly denny o'brien is in the doghouse, has not played well stemming back from the west virginia game a few weeks ago. everyone should be focusing on this schedule because now it is really difficult. georgia tech is the real deal. clemson is the real deal and florida state is the real deal. if this team wants to try to make a bowl, and it doesn't look good now, they better start worrying about what is going on on the field. >> you had craig loughlin on yesterday. i think matt hendricks will be on the show today. what is the feeling for the caps? >> i'm optimistic. i'm always optimistic. i have abeen a caps fan for probably close to 30 years at this point. i like the additions in the off season. i like picking up joel ward. i like troy braugher, acquiring him.
i love the off season additions. it is just a matter of can they get deep in the playoffs. the regular season doesn't matter. 100-plus point seasons don't matter anymore. it is what you do in the playoffs. >> like craig laughlin told us yesterday, if this team gets off tie poor start, guys could lose their jobs early. they may make a change with coach boudreau. who knows? the regular season doesn't matter. this team should be judged on what they do in the the post- season and the last few have been a disaster. >> if you don't mind me jumping in, you men'sed joe ward. he is one of these guys who shiebed in the playoffs last year and it will be interesting to see if the plays are think now in the beginning of the october, if the folk is is what is going to happen in april and not what is going to happen in the meantime. >> i'm pretty sure ward had seven goals in 12 play offgames. i'm looking forward to the 1500-
mile trip to play a division won't in the winnipeg jets. >> one more note before we go. tiger woods will be playing once again. he hasn't played in a while. he is now out of the top 50 in the world. would you still put money on tiger vague good performance or is he pretty much washed up at this point. >> i think he is shot at least for this season. i would not put any of my hard- earned money, steve, on tiger woods. >> this is a fall series event. it doesn't matter for the fedex cup obviously. it counts for the world ranking points. he is not washed up. he will play tournaments. i am till intrigued. >> i am as well. thank you -- i am still intrigued. >> i am as well. >> the world remembers apple cofounder steve jobs. how is apple responding to his death? that is coming up. there is the 14th street bridge. live pictures right now. we're back at 6:00.
