Chris Cooley is a bit performer for this year's Washington Redskins, but that's not the point.

After suffering through a string of treacherous losing seasons during his nine-year career, the veteran tight end is basking in Washington's six-game win streak that culminates with Sunday's NFC East title fight against the Dallas Cowboys.

"I think this run has been the most exciting part of my career," Cooley told The Washington Post on Wednesday. "It's been amazing seeing this team get the success that you work for every year. It's hard when you're not winning to come to work every week and keep doing the things you're doing. It's such a strange game because when you're not winning it's like every week is for naught. So the run we've had this year has made this so much fun."

Said Cooley: "Everything that we're working for, working together, has been in a positive way. It's been in a winning way and a winning fashion. It makes it so much fun to be here."

Every long-suffering team has their version of Chris Cooley. He brings hope to the masses, and we can't help but root for the man.
