Jennings in the slot???

I'm expecting Jennings and Nelson (or Jones) as the wideouts. I'd expect DD in the slot as the most likely benificiary if Cobb is out, and alternatively additional targets to Finley.

It would be nice to be able to sit Cobb and win. But the game is important - tough call.

Yes Jennings in the slot... he used to be the #1 slot guy. Now Cobb is, but Cobb still need to learn more about playing the wide out position.

Jennings and Driver can play all over but Driver just has dropped off a good bit.

Nelson and Jones are wide outs. Cobb is a slot guy but still should learn the outside.


Rodgers once talked if they got all the WRs healthy they'd would go 5 wide or 4 WRs and a RB with Jennings and Cobb in the slots and Nelson and Jones out wide.

That might of changed a bit with Finley starting to step up again.

Jennings needs to get in sync with Aaron for the playoffs.

Jordy too, to some extent.

Well the main news available is that he is not practicing.

Cobb out of Practice on Thursday

Maybe more to come on Saturday but it is looking more like he will rest the ankle for the playoffs. This is an important game on Sunday and Cobb's absence will be felt.

So what if Ross duplicates his performance from last weekend in the return game? Does that alter Mike McCarthy approach then for the playoffs?
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Did anyone notice the dropped lateral from the Bears game? No, Cobb should be a scratch for the Queens game and get ready for the playoffs where he resumes all duties.

Let his rest. I can live with touchbacks and Fair catches if that is what we need to do. Getting Nelson back, now that we already got Jennings and still having Jones and finley the passing game should be fine. we can even use DD more and get Boykin more involved also.

Besides the injuries, he has been playing a lot of snaps and a rest for the legs can only help him.

Not only that, but basically all season, we have never been able to have Jennings, Jones, Nelson, Cobb and Finley on the field at the same time. So defenses would have to prepare for them without any film. That can only help us.
