Packers have some 'work to do' with Randall Cobb and the Wildcat

From ESPN - November 14, 2017

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Wildcat formation was a couple of weeks in the making, but Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb had angled for it his whole NFL career.

"I have been waiting on it for seven years," Cobb said. "It was fun to be back there a little bit."

It might be seven more before the former University of Kentucky quarterback gets another chance to take a direct snap. He did it three times in Sunday against the Bears and the results were underwhelming -- runs for minus-1, 6 and 3 yards.

"We have got some work to do with that," Cobb said. "We did not line up correctly a couple times. We did not execute the play like we wanted to a couple times. So if we are going to continue to do that, then we have got to clean it up a little bit."

It's something coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett put into the plan after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone last month. They finally decided to give it a try against the Bears.

"I love it," Cobb said. "That's all I did in college, so that's right up my arsenal."
