When something becomes as big as the "You like that!" craze, it's bound to be used against the fad's creators. And on Sunday, when the Packers prevailed over the Redskins at FedEx Field, Randall Cobb proved that to be true: The wide receiver yelled his own version of Kirk Cousins' signature line in the stadium's hallways moments after the fourth quarter ended.
However, seeing how his actions were being received did not sit well with Cobb, because on Monday, he made use of Bleacher Report's "Uninterrupted" to clearly explain he intended no disrespect toward Washington's quarterback.
"I woke up this morning to see that the video of me saying 'You like that' has went viral, and what some are calling a mockery of Kirk Cousins," he said. "You know, we've had a lot of critics and naysayers and non-believers in us these last few weeks of the season saying that we can't get it done, and that was more of a message to them. Kind of similar to what Kirk Cousins did early in the year."
In fact, Cobb indicated he did it more as a sign of admiration, and was just trying to replicate the fire Cousins showed when he first shouted the now-famous three words.
"I guess you could call it a mimic," he said. "I was mimicking what he did earlier in the year. I got a lot of respect for him as a player and that organization, and I just wanted to be the first to let y'all know that was not the case. I sincerely apologize if it came off the wrong way to anyone. Really, I was just channeling my inner Kirk Cousins."
Not many seemed to take issue with what Cobb did — considering how popular "You like that!" has gotten, it's understandable that people would look to turn it around on the 'Skins whenever the chance presented itself — but he obviously wanted to clear the air. Him and his teammates now headed to Arizona for another playoff game, meanwhile, which is something he definitely likes — and won't have to apologize for, either.
