I think this statement has more to do with the fact the Pack have trucked Favre and Rodgers out there weekly since 1992. That is almost 25 years, man. Also, Rodgers is deadly accurate. He throws footballs around a field like an English dart player.

This is true, but might also highlight the need to not overspend on WRs.

This is going to look like a silly $ decision by Cobb two weeks from now.

Thought the Raiders had said they'd pay more. Of all people, I'm just surprised to see you doing the happy dance ??

I think he's well aware that he's given the Packers a bit of a hometown discount. He can always go to the Raiders and wallow in mediocrity when this contract is up. Right now going to the Raiders is career suicide

Career suicide? Whatever. Good players can be good anywhere. It wouldn't be likely that he'd make less money or have a shorter career overall going to a team like the Raiders. He's already left at minimum of $8M on the table. Not a stretch to think he could have gotten a longer term and perhaps a larger guarantee.

Don't care where he plays. Best person to decide that is him, but playing for less than your value in the NFL seems much closer to "career suicide" than taking a max offer from a rebuilding team.

Look at Eric Decker to the Jets or James Jones to the Raiders. They were both worth more money coming from a Rodgers/Peyton offence than they are now. (Although I never liked either.)

Definitely career suicide... Who was the last FA that went to the Raiders and prospered? Whoever goes to the Raiders is worth less when they leave. FA don't go to the Raiders unless they are in the waning part of their careers. Nobody goes there in their prime that's why they're the Raiders. They are a dysfunctional organization and will be for awhile

Jones was 29 or 30 when he went to the Raiders. It was basically his last contract either way. I'm going to go back and see what Decker got from the Jets. Is Cobb going to go for a huge contract at 28 or 29 when this one is up? I stand by thinking he'll probably have left money on the table looking at the career in its entirety. If career suicide means he'll be a HoF WR with the Packers but not with another team, well...some people like him more than me. I'm writing this one down in two places and hope I remember at least one of them in 2019. But I guess we'll never really know.

It depends what you mean by career suicide - if you believe the objective is to maximize earnings then maybe re-signing wasn't the best option but A) we don't know that (since his numbers could plummet with a crap team making his 3rd contract worth less) and B) I personally wouldn't consider that the objective function of my career

If I could choose 50M and playoffs almost every year with a shot at the SB vs 60M+ and toiling at the bottom of the league with a messed up organization I know which one I'd take...

I don't think Cobb should be worrying about his second contract. Few players are at that level, he's not like a Darrell Revis. Get it while you can IMO.

Randall Cobb suffered a shoulder injury in the Packers' third preseason game.
Cobb injured his shoulder trying to make a catch on the opening series. He was immediately take to the locker room, and is likely done for the game. The Packers can't afford to lose Cobb after Jordy Nelson's season-ending torn ACL. Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis will get an extended look in three-wide sets.

Word is that it IS NOT a broken collarbone, so that is good... haven't heard the severity of the sprain or if it is something else like a separation... Hopefully we will hear tomorrow...

Don't like the fact that "HE" doesn't know if he'll be ready...But given the source, who knows what was really said, or the context.

X-rays on Randall Cobb's injured shoulder came back negative.
He'll have more tests Sunday but it looks like he's going to be okay. Cobb got hurt on his third play from scrimmage Saturday against the Eagles. At first he thought he broke his collarbone but that wasn't the case. "I just caught the ball and was going down to the ground, and I had a guy land on top of me," said Cobb. "It's not what we think it could've been." Cobb isn't sure if he'll be ready for Week 1 against Chicago.

Ouch, the Pack is taking a whooping at WR this pre-season. Even if this injury is one he can bounce back from in reasonably short order, fact is he is already hurting entering the season and with an increased work load being eyed to replace the loss somewhat of Jordy this does not look like a good thing. Pack might have really focus on working Lacy hard and heavy and play a more run balanced/run heavy style this year. I have lil confidence that Ty Monty or Jeff Anus err Janis can fill the Nelson nuimbers and if Cobb ever succumbs to injury this year things compound at that point. Might not be any Cheese puffs at the x-mas party this year.

Rodgers makes WR's, not the other way around. Remember that. Davante, Janis, and Monty will all be household names by the end of the 2015 season. Maybe even Myles White.

Just like Favre used to when he was throwing to Bill Schroeder and Don Bebbe and still killing teams. I agree 100%

Verified as a minor AC joint sprain... most players don't even miss any time with this type of injury. Cobb wasn't going to play in week 4 of the preseason anyway, so I would be shocked if he isn't ready to go for week 1. What looked potentially horrible has turned out to be next to nothing...

Thanks Chris...Kept replaying the injury and the camera angle has him folding up after the defender lands on top of him; I was thinking collar bone, which wouldn't be season ending, but extremely painful, especially for a wide receiver...Good News!

Quote :
Fox Sports reported Packers WR Randall Cobb will be able to play Week 1.

Cobb injured himself in the third preseason game. A source told Fox Sports all "indicators" are Cobb will be able to play in the regular season opener. With Jordy Nelson (ACL) done for the year, Cobb has a chance to better his career highs in catches (91) and receiving yards (1,287) set last season.

Good stuff.
