The Packers would love to not have to use Randall Cobb on punt returns. But they haven't found anyone better to do it. According to Weston Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, special teams coach Shawn Slocum said Cobb and Micah Hyde are the options, and Cobb's first on the depth chart for a reason. Before...


I thought Janis was getting it done, but maybe they want a sure thing v the Seahawks.

I expect Randall Cobb to be focusing on WR by Week 2. The Packers coaches have said over and over again that starting off with a win is very important to them. I think this game has a touch of "revenge" with the Fail Mary deal. Even though it wasn't the Seahawks fault, I think the Packers, specifically Aaron Rodgers, will be aiming to light up the Seahawks.

I think Jeff Janis will be returning punts when they play the Jets.

I sincerely hope your thesis is correct.
I don't want to see Cobb returning punts on a regular basis.

Cobb wasn't even that impressive of a punt returner last time he did it. Maybe he'll be better at it this year but doesn't seem worth the risk to me, just have someone who can catch it.

Janis has more speed, imo. I guess the main question is fielding it cleanly.

I like Cobb on punts. That's a good decision. For now. They got a starter on the Seahawks doing the same thing. We're not alone. Let's see if Cobb goes back to the success he had the first season he returned punts. That's what we're looking for.

Kickoffs are Harris and Janis. They can go back and forth with those guys. Janis will get his oppotunities but I like him better on kickoff returns. Again, for now.

I don't like it much, but hopefully he mostly fair catches the ball. The Packers offense can move the ball on their own 90% of the time.

Does anyboyd have statistics an how many punt returners have been injured while returning punts and what type of injuries they recieved? Returning kicks is where the biggest hits on returners happen.

Over the last few years, the average for the team is about 30 actual punts where there was a return. So if they are divided between Hyde and Cobb, we are looking at 15 or so additional plays where he might get hit.

Smart move. We are all eventually going to love seeing Janis become the official returner of the Packers but let's not throw him to the wolves where he is most likely going to be vulnerable of a rookie mistake. I tried looking for it but there was a statistic showing Seattle as one of the best punt coverage teams last season.

Cobb won't make the mistakes that have been made by others and he also won't drop the punt which has happened far too much this preseason. He'll suffice for week 1.
