Official Patrick Cobbs makes the team thread.....

Discussion in ' - Patriots Fan Forum' started by HEY BRO! WHAT UP?, Aug 26, 2006.

  1. Patrick has had a great pre-season thus far and Patrick Pass should be a little worried to make the roster. I hope this guy makes the team.

    I'd be shocked if he got cut. In fact I expect him to get the bulk of the play next week also. You have to feel good for the guy. He never came to camp with the "woe is me, nobody drafted me" attitude, instead he came into camp very positive that he is a good back.

    I dont want to see this kid in a Colts uniform so keep him. He could problably be better than Rhodes and Addai, LOL.

    He plays hard and makes positive yards. He also seems pretty tough. I hope he makes the team. There are going to be some tough cuts this year.

    Dillon, Faulk and Maroney are running the ball
    Faulk and Maroney are returning the ball
    They are going nowhere
    And then there is the blocking backs Evans and Mills (also #4 TE)
    What exactly will Cobbs do on the team, other than be inactive and hope someone gets injured?

    I dunno. Keep him away from any rivals. He could be a really good player. Cut Pass?

    Pass isn't making the team unless he beats out Evans as the fullback.

    Does Cobb's success speak to the development of the O line? Just about every back is putting up numbers. This guy would be hailed as the second coming and have a starting job if he were playing for denver. If he is productive on special teams I think you have to find a way to keep this player.

    we made a mistake last year with Eckels

    Let's not repeat it this year with Cobbs.

    Pass-you can't make the team from the trainers room.

    Evans - good guy, steady performer, but Cobbs has much more of an upside. Beisdes, isn't Mills really slotted as a FB/TE? This would seem to eliminate Evans.

    "waiting for someone to get hurt.." well, last year Dillon was hurt most of the year as was Faulk. Cobbs is young, runs hard and by making the team it would reinforce what BB says about judging players by their play. He's earned a roster spot in my mind.

    Last year we did let a good RB get away by cutting him and thinking we could get him on the practice squad. Eckels would probably have helped during the Dillon and Faulk injuries. Instead he went with Miami and now is in limbo because of his military status.

    Lets keep Cobbs. He's earned it.

    what thread are you reading? what does this have to do with this thread?
    nobody said anything even close to this.

    He is a good runner and adds another recieving option to help take the strain off the thin WR corps. Dillon and Faulk are on the older side so they're likelihood of injury is higher. Last year it would have been nice to have this Cobbs guy on the team.

    Um...those are the reasons why Cobbs will/should not make the team.

    Pass will be PUPPed and will replace Heath "1.9 yards per attempt" Evans. Pass will then resume his solid and improving running and stellar special teams work while BB thanks Evans for all his hard work.

    And all the posters who point to Pass' ONE infamous play last year will continue to try to define his career by it.

    um those reasons suck, and have no bearing on the work cobbs has done. bb rewards effort and talent. this guy has worked his butt off to get here. he can have klecko's spot. give cobbs some credit.

    lol. Dropping the ball and grabbing his leg. It was stupid by him but I'll forget about it as we still won the game(barely).

    Sign me up. The guy is good. Wasn't he injured in college? He's healthy now.

    Thats the point. Mills plays FB/TE. That means Evans is out and Cobbs is in.

    First off, I agree that Cobbs will make the team.

    Secondly, you asked how listing reasons of why there isn't a spot for him on the team has anything to do with whether or not he makes the team. Regardless of whether you agree with the given reasons, the idea is completely relevant to this thread and discussion.

    Okay, to elaborate on the say no to drugs - Evans can't block to save his life, nothing I've seen from him in this preseason indicates he has improved his blocking from last year's horrors. Mills is a college receiving TE who has thrown a couple decent blocks against the third stringers of Atlanta and Arizona, and missed a couple, hardly a strong recommendation for his lead blocking skills.

    Cobbs has actually been surprisingly good on blitz pick-ups so far. Granted they're also third string, but for a little guy who was a feature back in college, he puts his nose in and has done a good job. Read that as trainable.

    Cobbs may not make the roster as BB tries to figure where he'll need the most depth, but the kid has stood out as a play maker who "consistently" gets the job done. That's righteous, since TheHives started this thread, it might even be tight.
