Sunday could be a special day for the Green Bay Packers all-purpose player, Randall Cobb. Cobb is set to break Ahman Green’s all-purpose yards record of 2,250 total yards, on sunday. At the moment Cobb stands at 2,241 going into sundays game. He should shatter the record by halftime.
This is no surprise to fans who have followed Cobb since college. In his senior season at Kentucky, Cobb set the single season SEC all-purpose yardage record with 2,396. Cobb played Quaterback, runningback, receiver and handled returning duties. He’s used this to transition very well to the NFL.
Cobb has had special season thus far for the Packers. At the beginning of the year he really made his mark on special teams, returning both kicks and punts. For a time he also was the Packers real run threat, lining up in the backfield for draw plays. Cobb has really turned into the Packers number one receiver the second half of the season. His total yardage break down is:
Receiving yards: 892
Rushing yards: 132
Kick Return: 964
Punt Return: 253
Cobb will most likely break the packers record with his receiving. He’s gone over 100 yards receiving in his last two games, as QB Aaron Rodgers targeted him the most whenever he needs a big conversion.
The Packers have never had a all-purpose player such as Cobb, who is only in his second year as a pro. It’s remarkable what he’s been able to do, and I believe one day he’ll set the NFL record for all-purpose yardage.
