Randall Cobb: The more we point fingers, the worse off we’ll be

Packers wide receiver says pointing fingers are only going to make things worse in Green Bay, but the only pointing any kind of fingers is Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers’ drop from 3-1 to 4-5 has led to a lot of discussion about what’s wrong with the team both inside and outside of the locker room.

There’s not much the team can do about what people from outside the organization will say, but things from inside can be just as harsh. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has talked about the team’s low energy level and need for players to feel like their jobs are on the line in recent weeks while defensive lineman Mike Daniels has called for his teammates to get angry about how things are unfolding.

Wide receiver Randall Cobb sees things a little differently from those two. Cobb believes that the key for the team right now is to avoid pointing fingers in favor of presenting a more unified front.

“That’s the most important thing,” Cobb said, via “There are things outside of our room that try to separate us, that try to pull us away from each other, that try to break the bond that we have that was created throughout the season. But we must stick together. That’s the only thing that we can do that’s going to get us wins. The more we point fingers, the more that people start doubting us, the worse off we’re going to be. So we just have to stick together and not let the outside noise change what we believe.”

Whether they are accusatory or conciliatory, the solutions to the Packers’ problems aren’t going to come from words. They are going to come by doing a better job on the field because, as Cobb says, “winning fixes everything.” If the Packers can’t do that, all the rest will just remain the noise of a team heading in the wrong direction.
