Offense won't be able to survive long term without Cobb - even if Jones can return in a few weeks. And Myles White isn't the answer.


Losing Cobb is like losing Clay. Huge blow. I just hope there's nothing permanent, even if he's out multiple weeks. Dude's just so explosive.

Micheal Rodney couldn't be more of a armchair GM/Coach. It amazes me he doesn't have a job in the NFL, since he seems to know so much more than the Green Bay Packers staff.

I honestly don't think JJ and Jordy will suffice.

My response wasn't in direct response to your quote of his, but just his Tweets in general.

true that is why they have Finley and Lacy. They will be on the field as a group more that is all. Still have 4 solid threats. Mike will be more creative. Aaron will still do a great job looking for the one who is uncovered and getting him the ball.

@RapSheet reports Cobb will have MRI tomorrow and early indications are that it may not be a major injury... Let's hope his source is right.

They could always split out Finley, Quarless, Bostick and Franklin, I suppose.

Do we KNOW anything about the condition of Jones and Cobb? Or is this just panicky speculation at this point?

IF it's the worst case scenario - both out long term OR the second worst scenario - one of them, probably Cobb out long term, the Packers will be just fine. The team we beat today - at THEIR place was no ordinary defense (until recently a very decent offense too). With Aaron Rodgers playing way below his capability - either because of his own problems or more likely because of our lame-assed O Line, we still did all right with the game on the line.

Against a more ordinary defense - almost anybody else in the league, and with a week of practice for whoever ends up as Aaron Rodgers' targets, things will be pretty much normal - maybe better than normal if the opponent gameplans for a diminished Packer passing game.

Ian Rapoport is reporting the same thing unless he is just parroting Rodney, or Rodney is just repeating Rapoport.

You have an offense that is struggling to score TDs and you don't think losing their #1 threat is a big deal? I don't care what defenses we have played or will be playing, not having Cobb will hurt. I like your optimism but sometimes you have to take of the glasses and put down the Kool Aid and admit the truth. I'm not saying its something they can't overcome but lets be realistic.

Oh, it's definitely a major negative to if we lose Cobb, but the MUCH bigger problem is horrible pass blocking from the O Line. And you are wrong about excellent opponent defense not making a difference. I'm confident that week in and week out against most of the defenses in the league, Aaron Rodgers will kick ass pretty much regardless of who is on the receiving end - within reason hahahaha. If it was Sschind and TPB out there catching passes, even Rodgers might have a problem.

I guess saying they will be fine is not the same as saying it won't be a problem so in that respect they may be fine. Obviously better defenses will give us more problems but taking away an offensive playmaker like Cobb has a way of equalizing the offenses and defenses.

As far as you and I lining up to catch passes, the opposing team would be laughing so hard at me trying to run a route, heck trying to run period, that Rodgers and Lacy could run all day long and they wouldn't have to pass.
