Packers don’t even list Rodgers and Cobb on injury report

Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb AP

For all the worrying and all the attention paid to their injured stars the last month or so, the Packers suddenly have no issues whatsoever.

According to Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com, neither quarterback Aaron Rodgers nor wide receiver Randall Cobb are listed on this week’s injury report.

“They look great, feel great. I have no worries about those two,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.

That’s great news for a pair of players coming off long layoffs, Rodgers with a broken collarbone and Cobb with a broken leg.

Of course, they both looked pretty sharp last Sunday, connecting twice for touchdowns, including the game-winner which sent them to the postseason.

    The Niners are overconfident. Packers 38, San Francisco 27.

    Is the game blacked out yet?

  3. quickstrong says: Jan 1, 2014 2:52 PM

    why would they talk about old injuries?

  4. goldrush36 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:05 PM

    Sounds like the pack are the overconfident ones. Banking on the cold doing the job for you. Kinda like Seattle got caught when they kept banking on home field doing it for them. You do realize Rodgers WILL be hit in that cold, and he will have to endure pain in that clavicle right? Dont mistake a “IF we win and NO wins, we may stay out east” for “We will win”

    I’m a Packers fan and there is no way the Pack put up 38 points in a win. Overconfident or not the 49ers are going to play defense and if the Packers are going to win it’s going to be on their defense to win a game more like 23 -20

    Missing CMIII is an issue. He’s OUT.

  9. fr0sted21 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:27 PM

    It’s going to be a great game. It is almost a shame that one of the two will be knocked out of the playoffs so soon. Like it or not (as a Vikings fan I do NOT ha), but the Packers with Rodgers back are a dangerous team. I hope San Francisco wins, and I think they are the favorites, but its not easy to win on the road in the playoffs. It should be a battle. The thing is, of the two teams I feel as though Green Bay would have the better shot at going into Seattle and knocking the Seahawks off. I think the 9ers are a better team overall, but if anyone’s offense can handle the Seahawk defense, its Green Bay. After all they did win at Century Link last year…oh wait…

    Playoffs are great football.
    It is a new season.
    It is better to play in playoffs then to not make them at all.
    It shows you re in the thick of the top teams.
    If you come in last place in your division , you have a long long way to go.

    Packers’ D will not hold them to such a low point total.

    The last several games points scored:

    chi 28
    pit 38
    dal 36
    atl 21
    det 40
    min 26
    nyg 27
    phi 27

    It doesn’t get better the more games you look at (except for CLE and BAL). So you can be certain that 49ers will almost certainly score 30+ points, maybe a little less due to weather.

    The only way the packers win this game is if the offense scores on almost every possession. The packers offense and special teams will need zero turnovers too.

    ===================================

    Probably because they only played 3 teams that finished with winning records. Two of them were in the 1st 2 weeks – the 49ers game in SF, and the wild finish in Cincy. The 3rd came against the Eagles without Rodgers. They were, however, part of Baltimore, Chicago & Dallas finishing at .500, and missing the playoffs rather than having winning records and games to play this weekend.

    And maybe you missed the key part of the question where they asked IF as in IF you win and the saints win. Would you stay back east. You know since the team has done that for all back to back eastern time zone games they have played under Harbaugh. Its good to have a plan in place genius. Doesn’t mean he was proclaiming a win. If you dont have a plan in place you usually stand no chance

    Answering the question the way he did is dumb. His answer should have been “I’m focused on this week”. Since that wasn’t his answer, it’s clear he is looking ahead.. and that’s good for Packer fans.

    new england last december… hostile and cold.

    lmao, get a grip man.

  22. goldrush36 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:19 PM

    Awe poor Seahonkey. AZ was actually pretty hostile most amped I have ever seen them for a game. Oh but thats right they beat you in YOUR house despite 5 turnovers. One and done for Seattle. No matter who wins this game.

  23. goldrush36 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:22 PM

    @dwarftosser and you do exactly what for a living? Easy for you to sit behind a keyboard and pretend to know whats actually on a coaches mind. Especially one as nutty as Harbaugh

    I guess that proves some 49ers fans are so overconfident that they believe they’ve demolished teams they never even played.

    Getting back to reality, since their week 9 bye the 49ers have been scoring an average of 23.5 points per game. That’s right, 23.5 points per game. Not 30+ like the games that you imagined they played.

    They’ll need to tack on at least an extra TD to their average if they want to put up 30+ on Sunday. With bone chilling field conditions and high wind speeds forecast; that’s just not likely at all for either team. Get a grip.

    How about holding Detroit to 9? Washington to 20? I’m not saying the Packers defense is good because it’s not. It’s got more holes than swiss cheese. The difference in the games you listed and this week is the Rodgers will be out there. The 3 and outs by Wallace, Tolzien and Flynn wont happen as often which means the 49ers will have the ball less and it won’t be the same type of field position. Rodgers normally doesn’t turn the ball over as often as the others did. If Flynn was starting at qb this week I could easily see the 49ers putting up 40 but with Rodgers IF the Packers are to win it’s going to be closer to 20/24 they hold the 49ers to. To do that it’s not just on the Packers defense it’s on the offense to sustain drives which doesn’t necessarily mean scoring points it means controlling the clock and constantly winning the field position battle.

    The Packers season has been a heroic one for the ages thus far. Perhaps the magic can continue for another week.

    Hey u know 5 weeks ago nobody gave the packers a chance on even making the playoffs!And now the kid from sanfran that everyone said was a fad is playing in another playoff game! CONGRATS packer fans and niner fans!!!!

  28. seahonky says: Jan 1, 2014 4:52 PM

    Goldrush…you forgot about the most hostile environment on earth….Seattle….your precious kap crapped in his diaper several times. Just wait til the 49ers play in Seattle again. It’s gonna louder than ever. 10x as loud. You won’t have the refs on your side like you did at candlestick

  29. goldrush36 says: Jan 1, 2014 5:12 PM

    Umm hey revelation 123.. Thats what the pack gave up to those teams in recent games. Nobody said the niners played them. The fact that people agreed with your comprehension of that worries me.

    The Packers didn’t have to. When you play in a division with the three stooges-Monisota, Liorry, and Curlyago, you win by default.

    *******************************

    That’s points scored against the Packers. Packers opponents have scored 26+ points in 11 out of 16 games. SF put up 34 points on them in the first game. I can almost guarantee the 49ers will score more than 28 points.

    Of the 5 games that the opponent was held under 26 points, one game was Det without Calvin Johnson and their 2nd WR. One was CLE. The other was Washington early in the season. Atlanta on the cold snowy day. As far as I am concerned, the Ravens game was the only game against a decent team where the team was held under 26 points.

    So the 49er should definitely score at least 28 points.

    The only thing I know is this will be the first time in the Hairball era that GB gets San Fran at home, the last 3 times they played were all at Candlestick. Not sure it makes much of a difference but I will concede nothing till the final whistle blows.

    All of the pressure is on the 9ers, they are expected to do well and possibly get back to the SB so GB really has nothing to lose, they are playing with house money.

  34. qoojo says: Jan 1, 2014 6:10 PM

    With a forecasted high of 10F, that will limit scoring. I might change my tune because of that :)

    Sounds like it’s going to be like as cold as the Giants NFC championship game. Damn that was cold. Couldn’t believe Favre was playing without gloves. I was shoveling with thinsulate gloves on and my hands were numb within 30 minutes.

  35. shlort says: Jan 1, 2014 6:36 PM

    Don’t see many 9er fans coming on the thread talking trash. Mostly Vikings fans who are jealous that their team is so horrible.

    The game will be close. Can Green Bay win? Sure. Any given Sunday and all the jazz. The Niners will have to play a solid game in those temps if they expect a positive result. Everything is critical when it gets that cold. Same goes for the Packers. Have to play good ball to win.

    SF has the edge in talent and GB has the edge for home field and the conditions. The weather tilts the field in the packers favor. If they can capitalize on that, they can take the game.

    If GB wins, I fully expect all the vikings fans to come on the threads and talk smack again next week about how Seattle or Carolina will handle Green bay though. Predictions eventually come true, Vikings fans. Don’t give up. Green Bay is bound to lose again. Maybe this weekend, maybe not until next season. Don’t let their winning wear you down as bad as the Vikings losing does.

  36. packfanaj12 says: Jan 2, 2014 9:05 AM

    The Packers will need to pull all the pieces together to win this next one. They do have the talent, we just haven’t seen them all clicking at once. The Niners have looked good other then their season start, so for the Pack to win they will need to limit mistakes and let Rodgers unleash hell.

  37. rho1953 says: Jan 2, 2014 1:58 PM

    It looks like this could be as cold as the original ice bowl. Who it benefits I don’t know for sure. The 49er’s have been a better team, a better defense for sure. But this is the playoffs and anything can happen.
