Randall Cobb blames himself for Packers offensive issues
The Green Bay Packers have had some issues on offense this season, and Randall Cobb holds himself responsible.
The Packers picked up just 77 passing yards last Sunday against Denver and rank 28th in total yards this season, an unusual spot for a typically high-powered offense quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers. It’s Cobb, though, Green Bay’s number one receiver, who is taking responsibility.
“I feel like it’s my fault,” Cobb said, via ESPN. “I feel like it’s on me. I’ve got to make more plays when I get opportunities.”
Cobb hasn’t caught a touchdown since week three. His coaches, however, aren’t that worried.
“I’m not looking for guys to come out of themselves and try to be something else,” said coach Mike McCarthy. “Randall just needs to keep being Randall. The best thing about Randall, he feels good, he’s healthy. Frankly, I thought he played pretty good in the Denver game. He’s like the rest of our prime-time players, he just needs more opportunities.”
Cobb refused to use the preseason injury to Jordy Nelson as an excuse for Green Bay’s woes.
“I don’t know what you want from me. I don’t know what you want to hear,” Cobb told reporters when asked if the Nelson injury had impacted him. “I’m going to go out and I’m going to play better for this team. I’m going to do more. I’m going to be the best Randall I can be.”
Green Bay’s next game is against the tough defense of the undefeated Carolina Panthers, so it won’t get any easier for them from here.
