Cobb: We Want To Be The Best
Green Bay Packers rookie receiver [intlink id=”1616″ type=”category”]Randall Cobb[/intlink] is all the rage this week after scoring on two now-he’s-down, now-he-isn’t plays against the [intlink id=”234″ type=”category”]New Orleans Saints[/intlink].
He made an appearance on the NFL Network on Monday, where he discussed his kickoff return touchdown, receiving touchdown and the Packers receivers.
Cobb was humble throughout and has obviously been tutored well by the team’s veteran receivers, who’ve instilled the team-first mentality.
“As a group, we want to be the best; we want to be known as the best,” Cobb said, referring to the Packers receivers. ”We go out to practice every day and we’re trying to get better; we’re pushing each other, we’re motivating each other, and if somebody is slacking, we let them know. I think that’s really something about our group is we don’t care who is getting the success as long as everybody in the room is doing their best and doing what they can to help everybody else out.”
It’s both interesting and encouraging to see, considering the Packers are loaded with weapons on offense.
A lot of people thought the Packers biggest problem this season would be finding enough balls to keep everyone happy. That doesn’t appear to be an issue, at least right now.
