I've seen some negativity in a couple of recent threads about Randall Cobb's play in the preseason. That's puzzling to me. I haven't seen him as playing any worse, maybe a little better than last year. I would guess he, along with several others - Shields and Tramon come to mind, look like they are not going full throttle in order to avoid injury in the preseason. That may even be under orders from the coaching staff. After all, the games are basically meaningless, and his job certainly is secure.

I've noticed that also. Some people are just looking for anything negative they can find so they can blather on. Preseason games are next to useless for Cobb, ARod, Lacy, etc. Preseason is about the bottom 20-40% of the roster. Think Cobb can really do anything to lessen/ improve his role while playing in meaningless games in which the opposition is playing vanilla? The only thing these 'starters' can do negatively is get hurt.
The real point should be, "Why all the negativity?". There are some rigid stances taken on here lately by posters. And quite honestly, as fans, we don't know s**t. We see a few minutes of a pretend game and try to make personnel evaluations. Like we have all the information. When we don't know squat. A month ago, there was a forum touting Lyerla as the greatest TE to ever sign. What a steal!!!! 4 weeks later, he's released. What a bum!!! Reality is that we didn't know his talent level, then or now.
I like bourbon. A lot. Almost as much as I like the Packers. But I don't know anymore about making bourbon than I do player evaluation. I enjoy the end result. But I'm not an expert. I don't know more than Ted Thompson or Mike McCarthy or even the Executive wing janitor. If some posters on here actually knew as much as they spout, they would be employed by an NFL team instead of living in their Mommy's basement.
The negativity is getting old, folks. Relax. Sit back and enjoy the time you have and the Packers. (And bourbon, if you're 21!)

did you only answer this because your screen name is husker and the title is Cobb? ... :)

we paid him and he will be getting lots of playing time - the one practice I saw he looked good. I know I liked what he has done for our team ... we will see

Will Cobb, now in his contract year, be paid as a result of his preseason performance, and is his spot on this team in jeopardy?

I'm sure there are plenty of reasons for why everything happens or has happened the way it does. It doesn't mean Cobb is going to have a terrible year or anything but it isn't unfair to point out he hasn't been very impressive this offseason and pre season. Him especially since he's one of the most exciting players on the team.

I don't like him having to return punts.

Let Janis do that, until the playoffs. I don't like a rookie back there in the playoffs.

Yeah I don't too bent out of shape on what happens in the pretend games. They and their stats are meaningless. I remember how much fans have loved this player or that one based solely on what he does against a 3rd or 4th string team. (sort of like Jayrone Elliott these days.) Don't get me wrong they have to excel against the 3rd and 4th string before they can move up to face the better players and I am glad they can but it doesn't mean they will perform the same way against elite players.

Cobb has a proven record already. He is not competing for a job. We just want him and the rest of the starters to emerge fromt hese worthless games uninjured. IE- Stretch well young man!!! [grin1]

As was said, pretend games don't mean much. Cobb is a great talent, and will be there come game #1.

Take a look at Matt Forte's pre season stats and tell me if you think he looks like a top five NFL RB (I know a lot of you will look at it though your Bear Hater glasses and say he isn't a top 5 RB anyway but I pretty much ignore those types of posts)

I can't really think of much that I take seriously out of the preseason and stats for guys who have already proven themselves is one of my least concerns.
