“We’ve had a lot of critics, naysayers and non-believers in us these last few weeks of the season, saying that we can’t get it done,” Cobb said in a video posted to Bleacher Report. “That was more of a message to them, whenever I said ‘You Like That.’ Kind of similar to what Kirk Cousins did earlier in the year. I guess you can call it a ‘mimic.’ I was mimicking what he did earlier in the year when a lot of people had given up on him and the Redskins.”
He apologized if the phrase came off the wrong way, and said that he was simply “channeling [his] inner Kirk Cousins.”
Cousins first screamed ‘You Like That!’ towards some local reporters after a 31–30 win over the Buccaneers in Week 7 after three losses in four games. He later filed for a trademark on the phrase after it grew in popularity.
After the Packers advanced to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs with a 35–18 win over the Redskins on Sunday, Cobb was caught doing the same thing.
The Packers will play the Cardinals on Saturday at 8:15 p.m. ET.
