Watching the tearful goodbyes of Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb in Green Bay was heart wrenching, but it’s good to see that Cobb is settling in well in Dallas.
Randall Cobb spoke to the Dallas media earlier this week, calling the situation in Dallas “perfect” for himself. Of course, many fans agree, as indicated by the overall excitement which surrounded his arrival in Dallas.
Jason Garrett spoke more to Cobb’s increased fit with the Cowboys, highlighting his football IQ and acumen when speaking to DallasCowboys.com. “You ask him (about his practice) and he lists off his five mistakes that he made. To him that was a terrible day of practice. But he comes back to get it corrected each day. He’s got a great spirit about him. He’s a real pro.”
We all knew Cobb is nothing if not a consummate professional, so it’s great to see him sharing his veteran knowledge with a team of young stars. We saw just how much better the Cowboys got last year after the addition of Amari Cooper. Maybe adding another quality receiver, one with plenty of savvy and experience like Cobb, will turn Dallas into a legit Super Bowl contender.
Which is tough for me, a lifelong Cowboys hater. But I hate to say it, the new guard of Prescott, Zeke, and Cooper with Cobb providing assistance? That’s a team that’s tough to dislike.
