i watched cohen play a few snaps against denver. he did okay, but let's just say he didn't have his finist moments in this game. he had a underneath pass hit him squarely in "both hands", but unfortunately he dropped it. however on another play, he picked up about 10 yards or so on a screen pass.
thing is, if you're like most "diehard aggies" (like myself) who has seen all 4 years that cohen played at a&t, you come to "expect" cohen to make at least one "big play" or two when watching him at the nfl level...
she's the "symbol" of lady aggie basketball excellence. its amber calvin's "show time" in aggieland!! the queen of "no look" passes...

The Chicago Bears have a two-headed monster at running back with the combination of Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen. Howard will do most of the heavy lifting on early downs and Cohen will dazzle with chunk plays as a dynamic receiver and all-around weapon.
But it’s the return game where Cohen could shine the most, according to NFL.com’s prediction of the 2018 All-Pro Team. Cohen was dubbed the most likely candidate to be the league’s top punt returner.
Cohen is a jaw-dropping talent who can score from anywhere on the field whenever he has the ball in his hands. Whether it’s as a runner, receiver or returner, he’s one of the NFL’s most electrifying players so it’s no surprise he’s the favorite to become the league’s best punt returner.
The Bears have to decide if Cohen’s skill set as a return man justifies exposing him to more hits and potential injury. The answer seems like an obvious ‘yes,’ but if he carves a bigger role on offense than anyone is projecting right now, his days on special teams could be numbered.

Tarik Cohen, Bears RB and former NC A&T star, throws shade at ECU after Aggies win

Aggie pride is real and after North Carolina A&T beat East Carolina on Sunday, it’s possible no one was prouder of the win than Tarik Cohen, the former A&T running back and MEAC all-time leading rusher who now plays for the Chicago Bears.
After the Aggies 28-23 upset over the Pirates, Cohen, who played high school football at Bunn, posted on Twitter Sunday a 2012 email he sent to then ECU recruiting coordinator Donnie Kirkpatrick asking him to “look at my highlights and give me any feedback.”
On Sunday, Cohen also tweeted: “I sent my high school highlights to ECU everyday my senior year in my 4th period class. Never got a response from them, so happy they didn’t. #AggiePride”
