Randall Cobb says up-tempo Packers offense is ‘unbelievable’
After just one preseason game, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is already blown away by the tempo of the team’s offense.
"We banged out 33 plays in the first quarter, which is unbelievable," Cobb said, per Michael Cohen of the Journal Sentinel. "I think that’s a good sign for us."
The Packers’ first-team offense moved the ball in the middle of the field with ease against the New England Patriots. However, when the offense reached the red zone, it had a tendency to stall out. The Packers’ starters ran eight offensive plays inside the Patriots’ 20-yard line and did not score once, according to the Journal Sentinel.
"Of course we’ve got things we still need to work on," Cobb said, via the Journal Sentinel, "but to come out and get 33 plays in the first quarter, that was huge for us offensively."
Assuming the red-zone offense will come together with time, the Packers appear to be deadly on that side of the ball.
Joining Cobb in the receiving corps is Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and third-round rookie Ty Montgomery, plus a handful of other pass-catchers fighting for reps in practice. Eddie Lacy is still lugging the rock at running back, too. Operating behind a world-class offensive line, reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers has all the tools a quarterback could ever need.
