G Cobb May Run for Congress

From the Philadelphia Business Journal:

Garry Cobb, who played 11 years in the NFL as a linebacker for the Eagles, Detriot Lions and Dallas Cowboys and has enjoyed a 20-year career with 94-WIP, is leaning toward running as a Republican for New Jersey’s 1st Congressional District seat being vacated by Democratic U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews.

“He is seriously considering it and will probably make up his mind in the next two weeks,” said Pat Breslin, a friend who returned a message placed to Cobb Thursday.

Garry is a nice man who legitimately knows football, but – let’s turn on the sarcastic font – what this country really needs solving its complex problems is an ex-football player who yells at his GPS.

    I can’t wait to watch him fall asleep in his seat during the State of the Union, just like he did/does when he’s on the air at WIP. I think it will be harder for him to sleep and say ‘uh-huh’ to people in front of him as opposed to people on the other end of a phone line that can’t see him.

      Yeah whatever radio Raheem I know that’s you.

    Quality old school WIP Producer name, but I’m not Raheem, just like you’re not G.

    G’s a nice guy. He knows football, but that’s it. Otherwise he’s a stone cold dope.

    FORMER-i agree with you he seems to know football, sometimes he can’t get the right words out, but i always thought he was un-prepared for most of his shows, -you gotta tell me though big daddy has to be a total douch-right?

    Well, he can’t be any dumber than what is already in Congress. Doubt that he would win though;

    Turd – What makes you say that about Big Daddy? I didn’t interact with him a lot, but never found him ‘douchey’ the times that I did.
