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.

Quote:
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that coach Mike McCarthy said Cobb would test his ankle on Friday to see if he’s ready to go on Sunday. McCarthy also said Cobb’s dealing with a knee injury, which could make it likelier that the team decides to hold him back until the playoffs.

I have a feeling Cobb will sit outv. MIN, giving Jennings some time in the slot to reconnect with Rodgers, and Ross an opportunity to show what he can do in the return game. Cobb's injury makes the decision easy for McCarthy.

Yep, gotta hold Cobb out of this one. Now it makes this a fair match up since the Vikings don't have Percy. Let's see how we do. :)

Are you forgetting about the return of Nelson?

Jennings in the slot???

I'm expecting Jennings and Nelson (or Jones) as the wideouts. I'd expect DD in the slot as the most likely benificiary if Cobb is out, and alternatively additional targets to Finley.

It would be nice to be able to sit Cobb and win. But the game is important - tough call.

Yes Jennings in the slot... he used to be the #1 slot guy. Now Cobb is, but Cobb still need to learn more about playing the wide out position.

Jennings and Driver can play all over but Driver just has dropped off a good bit.

Nelson and Jones are wide outs. Cobb is a slot guy but still should learn the outside.


Rodgers once talked if they got all the WRs healthy they'd would go 5 wide or 4 WRs and a RB with Jennings and Cobb in the slots and Nelson and Jones out wide.

That might of changed a bit with Finley starting to step up again.

Jennings needs to get in sync with Aaron for the playoffs.

Jordy too, to some extent.

Well the main news available is that he is not practicing.

Cobb out of Practice on Thursday

Maybe more to come on Saturday but it is looking more like he will rest the ankle for the playoffs. This is an important game on Sunday and Cobb's absence will be felt.
