Randall Cobb

Preview: Packers vs. Lions

It’s easy now to say general manager Ted Thompson overpaid Randall Cobb. After all, the $10 million a year receiver’s disappointing play is a big reason why the passing game has sputtered for the past month and a half. But that would be unfair. It was only eight months ago that most people were commending the organization

Stars Not Shining For Packers

My top 12 Packers in 2014 were Aaron Rodgers, Josh Sitton, Jordy Nelson, Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb, Mike Daniels, Eddie Lacy, Julius Peppers, T.J. Lang, Bryan Bulaga, Morgan Burnett and Corey Linsley. Notice anything about that list? Of those players, not one has upped their game this season. And quite a few have regressed. So is it

Cobb Must Be Moved

Without the big play ability of Jordy Nelson to keep defenses honest, opposing corners and safeties have been crowding the line of scrimmage and making life difficult for Randall Cobb, Green Bay’s new No. 1 receiver. In the past two games, he’s caught only 5 passes for 61 yards. And while some of the blame must

Who’ll Be The Next Starks?

At this time four years ago, Aaron Rodgers was throwing to Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Donald Driver, Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley. My how things have changed. Going into Sunday’s game against the Chargers at Lambeau Field, the names are Jones, Cobb, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Richard Rodgers. Is it any wonder the

Receivers Have Separation Anxiety

Despite extending plays with his feet all game, Aaron Rodgers struggled to find open targets against a mediocre 49ers secondary. I wanted to wait until I watched the All-22 before assigning blame, but my hunch was that the receivers weren’t creating separation. Well, the coaches’ tape proved that hunch accurate. For much of the game, Randall

Packers Playing Small Ball

Aaron Rodgers has one of the strongest arms in the NFL, but without Pro Bowl wide receiver Jordy Nelson, the passing game has been drinking and dunking its way down the field through two games. Of the 51 aimed passes thrown by No. 12 against the Bears and the Seahawks, only 10% traveled more than 20

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. SEA

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Seahawks: 1) Due to his lack of speed and quickness, Richard Rodgers will never be an elite player. That said, the second-year tight end proved Sunday night just

Packers Must Fix Red Zone Woes

Last week’s struggles inside the 20 against New England shouldn’t be cause for alarm, but it certainly brought back some unpleasant memories. The Packers scored touchdowns on only 12 of 26 red-zone opportunities in the final seven games of last season. Any offense with Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams
