“I’m ready,” Jones said when asked if he was that No. 1 guy. “I work hard every year. I’m ready to take in that role if we don’t get Greg (Jennings) back. Hopefully, I can continue to have some success, make some plays and help my team win.”


I've always said he could get it done. Definitely stepped up this past year. I'd like to see him do that consistently for more than one season, but it looks like he might get his chance to do so.

I still think Cobb's more explosive though.

Again.. I don't think there is nor should be a #1 in the Packers offense... it will be match up based targeting.

So.. any given week, as we have seen for a couple years, guys will be the #1 one week in targets and be just about ignored the next.

What the Packers do lack is a player that can really stretch the field on routes and force the defense to extend the safeties and open things up under the two deep.

Well we've got Finley and Cobb.

Our guys can get deep, imo. Then again, they never throw underneath anyway. ;)

no #1 receiver. They don't even line up in the same position every down. Mix and match and look for the open receiver as long as Aaron Rodgers is willing to hold it for 8 seconds so they can get the big play down field and inflate Rodgers stats so that one day he can wipe out all of Brett's records.

Oh they go deep.. not arguing the depth of our routes.. but we don't have a guy that is a burner, someone that scares the defense with his speed. Someone that will force the back end of the defense to adjust if he is running a fly route.

I like the way they do it where every receiver on the team can line up in any spot and run any of the routes. I've always liked James Jones but I still think Jordy is the better receiver overall. One thing about Jones that it seemed last year is he is by far the best receiver on the team at beating a press at the line of scrimmage.

I'm still quite sure that Ted will draft someone at WR. Hopefuly it'll be on day one.

This receiving group scares me. Everyone seems to be elated that we have 3 guys who can play all the positions... Which is like saying we have 3 running backs who play an equal amount every game. Great and all that they can do that, but I'd rather have Adrian Peterson than 3 "ok" guys.

And that's the same for our WR group.

Nelson isn't elite, Jones isn't elite and Cobb isn't elite. I can't think of a whole lot of teams where any of these guys would be the nr. 1 receiver.

I'm hoping that I'm wrong, but if this is our final group of WRs, we're not going to see a whole lot of seperation from CBs out of our WRs. Something that annoyed me this year when Jennings was out. Rodgers will have to remain pinpoint accurate.

I don't agree with that comparison.

Look at the drastic improvement Cobb made from year one to year two. His route running was better, his hands were better, and his knowledge of the offense increased. Some of the catches he made were just outstanding.

If not for missing one game, he would have caught over 80 passes for 1,000-plus yards, and 8 TDs.

Those are really good numbers for a 22-year-old.

Frankly, I think more than half of the teams in the NFL would love to have either player, but especially Cobb, as their No. 1 wide receiver. That's not elite, but as a group, that's a dangerous weapon.

The main problem, though, is Green Bay's reliance on the passing game. They're now one injury away from Jarrett Boykin of having to play a significant role in the offense.

That's nice and all but the thing is only 1 freaking team has Adrian Peterson. The passing game is about a hell of a lot more than 1 player that's a big part of the reason why Brandon Marshall can put up huge numbers and the Bears offense still blows goats. It's a lot easier to slow a team down with 1 good player than a team with several good but not quite as good players.

I'd like to have Calvin Johnson, AJ Green, Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson, and Larry Fitzgerald as our 5 WR. That would be cool wouldn't it?

Taking a WR in the first round this year would be pretty dumb unless we could somehow get into the top 10 without giving up much to get there (lol). Odds are any guy taken in the 20s won't see many snaps.

remember, day 1 is round 1 now. I'm assuming you don't want a WR in round 1.
