Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was asked this past week about Randall Cobb’s problems with dropping passes. It’s something that happened last year and has carried over.
“Randall Cobb catches the football very well,” McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “He might drop a ball. I don’t know if there’s a concern. But it’s something we spend a lot of time on. We need to catch the football better….I’ve never been part of a perimeter group that accepts anything less than being 100 percent, and that’s what we’re striving for.
“As far as Randall Cobb’s evaluation of catching the football, he has very good hands.”
Packers wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett says they’ll continue to work with his players.
“We’ll just continue to make that the primary emphasis for us,” Bennett said. “Catching the football, how we’re catching the football, attacking the ball, not allowing the ball to cross our eyes, looking the ball all the way in. But he had two today that he definitely shouldn’t have.”
“Sometimes, guys might lose that and just take their eyes off of it as far as getting ready to run,” Bennett said. “Generally, sometimes that’s what happens. Instead of looking the ball all the way into the tuck, they get ready to see where the defender’s coming from and not put the ball away and look the ball all the way in.”
