Randall Cobb: This year feels different “and it doesn’t feel good”

Over the course of eight years with the Packers, wide receiver Randall Cobb has been on a few teams that have faced questions about whether they could solve what was wrong in time to make the season a success.

There was the 1-2 start in 2014 that led quarterback Aaron Rodgers to tell fans to “R-E-L-A-X” and the four-game losing streak that left the Packers at 4-6 in 2016. The Packers were able to right the ship in those seasons and wound up in the NFC Championship Game both times.

The Packers are facing some of the same questions they faced in those years after closing the first half with a 3-4-1 record and some might suspect that Cobb and others who were around for those seasons would use them as an example of how things can turn around. Cobb went another direction, however.

“We’ve lost games before here, but this just feels different,” Cobb said, via ESPN.com. “And it doesn’t feel good. It’s not fun. But we’ve got to figure something out. … Yeah, I mean we definitely need some momentum, we need to get a win,” Cobb said. “I can tell you, this isn’t fun. Very frustrating and it’s tough. Because I know what we’re capable of and we’re not there. I don’t know what it is, but we’ve got to find a way to get it done.”

One thing they’ll need to figure out is a way to win on the road. They are 0-4 away from Lambeau Field and will play in Seattle and Minnesota after hosting the Dolphins this Sunday.

  1. The only saving grace for the Packers over the last decade is that they’ve been in one of the consistently worst divisions in the NFL. But it’s also hurt them because every year they’ve done OKAY (just okay), so they’ve never felt an urgency to make necessary changes. Like a coaching change.

  2. Trolls make me laugh.

    Take it from a Bears fan. They still have Aaron Rodgers. And until they don’t, the Packers are always a threat. Say what you want about their roster full of holes, or their head coach, they still have Aaron Freaking Rodgers. I hate him, but he’s that good. SMH.

    BEAR DOWN!

  3. Even our own players openly admit how bad our Packers are.

    Woe is me. I’m a Packers fan. Woe is me.

  4. This next game is our best chance to win a game this month.

    But we know our season is over.

  5. Randall Cobb on being 3-4-1 and it feeling different because their expectations are so much higher:

    “It’s very frustrating and tough because I know what we are capable of. We need a win and get some momentum”

    Very typical feelings after losing two games in a row. Things can change quickly with 2 games over five days coming up here. Randall knows that. Get one win and momentum and start a run.

    Stay tuned…

  6. Don’t freak out. This year may be lost, but the problem was mostly the drafting of Ted Thompson. Too many failed drafts. Gutekunst looks like a BIG upgrade. The Packers will be competitive the rest of this year, but may not make the playoffs. They aren’t far off, and this years draft is looking like gold. They have a LOT of draft picks for next year. Help is on the way. McCarthy and Rodgers seem to have lost “that lovin’ feelin'” so next year will see some rather large corrections and I am betting they will be very good next year.

    He didn’t look very good in Foxboro last week

  8. This is what it looks like when your QB got paid and is mailing it in this year to get his coach fired. Fun.

  9. BTW, I’m not impressed by the Bears. I think the Packers will smoke their butts in December. They should beat the Dolphins, maybe the Seahawks, the Lions, and the Jets. That would be five more wins and probably just miss the playoffs.

  10. @rho1953 You nailed it. They kept Ted on about 3 or 4 years too long. His last few drafts have proven to be horrible. Especially for a draft and develop team. I think one of two things needs to happen: McCarthy has to go, or, McCarthy has to turn the offense over to someone else. He’ll never do that, so we’re back to choice number one. He’s got to go. He’s a successful coach, but his offense is stale. When the fair weather football watchers in the room know what the play is before it happens you need some changes. When your QB holds onto the ball for 5 or 6 seconds because no one is open, you need some changes. That might be Rodgers fault somewhat, but the coach is supposed to change bad habits.

  11. What took him so long to wake up?
    This season was years in the making without reason for hope in the future.
    A-A-Ron will regret sticking with GB.

  12. Seems like back in the Favre days, win or lose, even when the Packers were really bad, they were always fun to watch. Their unpredictability kept you watching cuz you never knew when something crazy might happen… There is nothing fun or unpredictable about this current bunch. It’s literally been the same crap over and over since 2011. Rack up stats against crap teams, lose to good teams, then get embarrassed in the playoffs. Over and over. And over. It’s tired, old, and worst of all, boring.

    Don’t freak out…..
    =====

    The team is merely going to gut their coaching staff… and may need to turn over 1/3 of their starters… but, hey, no big deal…………

  14. Mike Daniels is a go Sunday.

    Bulaga practiced full today. 99% a go.

    Cobb and Blake Martinez both still very questionable. I’d lean towards Blake playing, but I have zero to confirm that.

    Another team wrecked by the Patriots
    =====

    The Seahawks wrecked them.

    4 years ago.

    That would be 2014, right? Didn’t some team wreck the seahawks in the superbowl that year?
