Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb says that he wasn’t mocking Kirk Cousins by shouting ‘You Like That,’ the Redskins quarterback’s signature phrase, after Sunday’s win. He was “mimicking” him.
“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.
