As long as Aaron Rodgers is healthy and under center, the Green Bay Packers are always going to be strong contenders in the NFC and that should exactly be the case once again for the 2013 season. Even if Greg Jennings is no longer in the picture, the Packers still have plenty of weapons on offense to be one of the top contenders once again–especially with Randall Cobb on board.
In his second season in the league, Cobb emerged as one of the most dangerous wide receivers as he finished with 80 catches for 954 yards to go along with eight touchdowns. With all of the weapons in Green Bay’s passing game, everybody knew Cobb was capable of displaying solid numbers, but nobody could have predicted him to have this type of impact.
After posting these type of numbers–expectations for Cobb will be even higher for the 2013 season as the Packers look to defend their NFC North title.
Cobb was recently praised by Rodgers after the quarterback said he believes the wideout is capable of being a “100-catch guy” and with the type of numbers last season–there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be able to reach that milestone next season. If anything, Cobb should see more passes thrown his way now that Jennings is out of the picture–so this goal doesn’t seem as difficult to accomplish.
The third season is usually when wide receivers breakout the most and considering how much of a surprise he was last year–expect big things from Cobb next season with the Packers.
