Green Bay rookie Randall Cobb tied an NFL record with his 108–yard kickoff return against the New Orleans Saints last night.
OK, I'm a Packer fan so it stands to reason that I would like this. But if you are a football fan, even a Saints fan, it's worth another look ... or two or three.
For some reason, when I saw that return, I thought of a scene from "Citizen Kane" — when the singing tutor Kane had hired to instruct his wife said, "Some people can sing. Some can't."
The same logic surely must apply to kick returners. Some can. Some can't.
Randall Cobb definitely can.
