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.

Zero2Cool (1h) : Just odd that a Packers fan points out when Packers perceived to get away with something, yet ignore opponent. Weird.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Packers added RB Christine Michael (back) to the injury report as questionable
uffda udfa (2h) : Not diminishing anything. He got away with OPI. Didn't notice before. Was in airport.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Bahahahahahahha GO PACK GO!!!!
Zero2Cool (4h) : when you're buying your Super Bowl LI Champion gear, be critical of that too!
Zero2Cool (4h) : keep trying to diminish what the Packers have done and ...
Zero2Cool (4h) : one... that's just how it goes. They let the players play. But go ahead
Zero2Cool (4h) : Everyone knows on the hail mary type passes, those little shoves won't be called. Think replacement refs 2012. So, no did not get away with
Dulak (4h) : ya I think they mentioned that U U ... but you see this alot - even in the dallas game they pushed off at least 1 time (they as in dallas)
uffda udfa (10h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (13h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (13h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (14h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (18h) : It's just fine.
musccy (18h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (18h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (20h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (20h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (20h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (20h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (20h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (20h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (20-Jan) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (20-Jan) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (20-Jan) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (20-Jan) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (20-Jan) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
