Packers' Randall Cobb is frustrated with double coverage

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has said he is frustrated when he is constantly facing double coverage.

Since the injury to Jordy Nelson during the preseason which has sidelined him for the year, Cobb has been the number one receiver in terms of receptions in the Packers offense with 28.

However, with the high amount of receptions, come the high amount of targets, which provides the opposing defense with an insight as to who the ball is going to on the offense. This means Cobb has consistently received double coverage.

And this double coverage is causing the wide receiver to become frustrated, but he realizes it comes with the territory he is now in.

He said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “It’s definitely frustrating. But it’s part of the game, it happens. I’m sure Jordy felt like this at times last year. But the more guys make plays around us, the harder it will be for teams to do that. That’s why we need everybody making plays.”

He hasn't been too bad considering the situation he is in. Cobb has helped the Packers stay undefeated so far this season, and has accumulated 312 yards and four touchdowns from his 28 receptions over five games.

Since fellow wide receiver Davante Adams was sidelined during the Packers' week three clash against the Kansas City Chiefs, Cobb hasn't produced, only achieving 67 yards from eight receptions.

However, good news has occurred this week, as Adams was able to practice and may even play this weekend against the San Diego Chargers. Cobb will be hoping the injury report on Friday will report him as available for the game.
