Bears Vs. Packers: Dave Toub Lauds Randall Cobb As One Of NFL's Top Return Specalists

Chicago Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub was quick to praise Green Bay Packers return man Randall Cobb. The second-year player returned a punt 75 yards for a touchdown in the Packers' Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and has three returns for touchdowns in his 16 career games. Toub took note of Cobb's skills and knows the Bears must be aware of him:

"We have to manage our kicks very well this week with Cobb back there," Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub said. "He's excellent. He is, if not the best, besides Devin (Hester), I don't who else there is. Maybe the guy down in Arizona (Patrick Peterson), he's pretty good too."

The Bears' special teams unit will be ready for Cobb, as they are always one of the NFL's best and performed strongly in their Week 1 victory over the Colts.

The Bears and Packers will kickoff at 7:20 p.m. CT on Thursday.
