Still waiting for some definite news on Cobb's situation. This article mentions the concern about having him return kicks given the evidence of his playmaking ability.

I have to admit that Cobb showed his smartness with picking up the ball half in/half out of bounds. Maybe Ross can make up for his drop during that disaster trick play and take over as a star returner.

I would like Boykin in that role. Hopefully this was just a sprain.

I would not... tall lengthy guy like that has too much real estate for the opposition to hit. Ross looks like the ideal type of candidate. Not real long in length.. quick in the short area and not counted on in the offense nor defense currently.

Doesn't look like they will switch anything up.

Mike McCarthy said:
I’ll be honest with you: I don’t have a really high tolerance for this because I don’t understand how you play scared in the game of football. I don’t get that,” McCarthy said. “I think it’s convenient questioning. I understand the risk involved in every single play. Some plays are higher risk than others, and I’m fully aware of that.

“But you can’t sit here and say special teams is important if you don’t put a guy like Randall Cobb out there as a returner. Now, if we’re sitting here next year, we might be having a different conversation. But the way our team is built for 2012, Randall Cobb is a huge part of our success on special teams.”


Can't really blame him though, taking Cobb off of returns would essentially take away half of his "touches" per game.

I agree with McCarthy's decision not to change the plan this late in the season, but if we lose Jennings to free agency then I'd prefer Cobb be taken off special teams altogether. Ross looked good on his long return (albeit with the help of some great blocking). I have a feeling Harris would be good back there too.

Remember when Tramon Williams was our punt returner?

Glad they took HIM off. Way too valuable.

I remember Tramon being our fair catcher on punt returns. Don't recall him actually returning many. And I cringed every time he didn't put his hand in the air. I would say Cobb finishes off the year what he is doing and give the job to Ross next season.
