He won't openly admit Cobbs is his favorite player, but Sparano's consistent praise, and the fact Cobbs has more than a handful of plays designed specifically for him, speaks volumes to everyone associated with the team.
"We joke that every time Pat makes a mistake, Tony is in tears," said fellow tailback Ricky Williams. "That's his type of guy. A guy who works hard and consistently produces."
The Leprechaun Cobbs started off as a sort of punchline to the fact that we had shitty running backs to fall on after Ronnie and Ricky went down to injuries a couple of seasons ago. Samkon Gado, as it turned out, was rather shitty. Cobbs? He was rather awesome.
Patrick Cobbs is the perfect scrappy, lunch pail blue collar player guys like Sparano and Parcells love. He's hard working, brings it every single play and has tremendous versatility. He'll play the H-back, he'll catch passes out of the backfield, he'll break open screens with his quickness, he'll punch you in the dick for no apparent reason. He can also fight twenty men armed with swords and flails while downing a pint of Guinness with one hand and pleasuring a harem of Asian hookers with the other.
Ain't that right, Pat?
Foick yeh, ya foickin' fannyball knobrot!
