Randall Cobb knows what it is like to play with Aaron Rodgers.
The former Packers receiver who followed Aaron Rodgers to the Jets had a message for his new teammates. During the latest ‘Hard Knocks’ episode, Randall Cobb provides some advice to the New York Jets WRs, saying that trust is key to Aaron Rodgers.
He warned them Rodgers would snap if their play didn’t improve.
“I was just talking to 12, or 8,” Cobb said, funnily forgetting that Rodgers has a new number now that he’s with the Jets. “And he was just telling me, you know, we had a lot of mistakes in our room today. Just basic stuff, little things. We can’t have that. And it’s all cool right now, but I’m telling you, one day, he’s gonna lose his s—.”
“It’s gonna happen if it continues to go the way it’s going right now. Cause he if don’t trust you, he’s not going to throw you the ball. I can promise you that. If he don’t trust you he… he does not like throwing interceptions. So if he can’t trust that you’re going to run the right route, he’s not gonna throw it. It’s just a matter of time. Continue to work. Stay in your book and stay locked in.”
Rodgers certainly got word of what Cobb stated because he addressed it while speaking to reporters.
“Cobby said some things about how you got to watch out because you know 8’s going to snap at some point,” Rodgers said. “I don’t feel like I’m the snapping type anymore. I mean, I’m going to raise my level of intensity, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to embarrass anybody.”
Rodgers’ first season with the New York Jets is going to be one of the biggest storylines in the NFL.
Even in a down year by his standards, Rodgers’ 3,695 passing yards with the Green Bay Packers in 2022 would have been the fifth-most in a season in Jets’ history. Those numbers on the Jets last year would’ve certainly had them as one of the best teams in the league and in the playoffs.
Those same numbers and even better would assure the team of getting where they want to be, and that is in the postseason and running it all the way to the Super Bowl. It would be the second time Rodgers’ would be there should it happen.
