“In the Zone” with Randall Cobb

Is this the 6 millionth post I’ve written about Randall Cobb? Probably. But he’s worth it.

SB Nation recently profiled Cobb in their “In the Zone” series, and it’s just as good as you would imagine. Cobb talks about his journey from a high school quarterback many thought was too small to play in college to one of the most dynamic and exciting young players in the NFL (seriously, I expected Faith Hill to sing an entire verse about him on Sunday night). Part of that journey, of course, was his time at Kentucky, which Cobb describes fondly. SB Nation won’t let me post the video here (**shaking my fist**), but you can get to it by clicking the pic above. Because it’s #Goldeneyes and I can’t help myself, here are some of my favorite highlights:

I see you, Block K hat:

Cobb keepin’ the house festive:

On going to Kentucky:

“The coaching staff at Kentucky really believed in who I was as a player, and told me they were going to give me the opportunity at quarterback. It didn’t work out they way I thought it would, but they thought it was best for me to move to receiver, and when I made that move, the rest is history.”

On leaving Kentucky after his junior season:

“It was a difficult decision. For three years, I gave everything–my heart and soul–to the university. But in the end, to be here in Green Bay, it was something special, so I think it played out in the right way.

Mmm, burgers:

On his so-called “rookie slump” (wha???) and what motivates him:

“My dad’s always told me there somebody out there just as good as I am. And they’re working, they’re getting better. If I’m not continuing to work and get better, then they’re going to be better than me.”

I seriously doubt that, Randall.

    Cobb will always be one of my favorites, the kis busted his butt at UK and gave all his heart in every play. Some UK players can learn from him.

    GUYS– we have more than 1 UK player in the NFL. Why is every article about Randall Cobb? What about Danny Trevathan? This makes us look lame and seems like we only put 1 guy in the league.

    4. When SB Nation profiles DT, I’m sure it will be on KSR.

    Randall is my favorite football wildcat and I am so happy to see him doing well in the pros especially for my favorite team. Every time he touches the ball you just get the feeling something exciting is about to happen.

    I actually agree with 2. I’m really glad when KSR talks about Cobb but I hardly ever see anything about Wesley Woodyard who is having a fantastic season. He might even make the pro bowl this year and he has been voted team captain by his teammates. Again I love hearing about Cobb, just wish you guys would keep us up to date about other Cats in addition to Cobb.
