Patterson has made the Pro Bowl, 1st team all pro and 2nd team all pro in the last 3 seasons.

Cobb has made 1 pro bowl (the year of our Lord 2014, that you're so in love with), and nothing else since

Patterson can play anywhere. He could easily lineup in the slot. His return ability would be huge for us.

He’s a great return guy; not even and average receiver. New England was HURTING for WRs and Patterson only mustered 21 receptions.

He couldn’t beat out Hurns.

Yeah, as a return specialist

Oops

Patterson has lined up in the slot on approximately 8% of his snaps as an NFL receiver where he has caught a grand total of 9 passes for 83 yards and 1 touchdown in 6 years. For reference, in 2012 alone Dez Bryant had more catches, yards and TDs out of the slot than Patterson has in his entire career.

Patterson is a Z receiver (and not a very productive one) who remains in the league largely due to straight line speed and return ability. He runs notoriously poor routes making him ill suited for the slot. Cobb on the other hand is ranked the 4th best route runner in the NFL since he came into the league by advanced metrics.

You’re out of your league here boy

Moncrief

Bellamy

Patterson

Perriman

Roberts

All got $5mil or less. I could go on with names too

We signed a guy who hasn't had a good season since 2014

Moncrief stats since2014:



Yds a game average: 36.9

TD a game average: .30

Biggest Yard season -2015 - 733 yards



Bellamy Stats:



Yds a game average: 14

TD a game .13

biggest season: 499



Roberts stats: Are you talking Andrew Roberts because he had 79 yards in 2018 and 12 yards in 2017 and only 188 yards in 2016….



Cobb since 2014:



3767



Yds a game 54.5

TD a game .40

biggest season: 1287





dude… he is double every single players name in not only yards a game, on top of that you are saying Patterson? Patterson in 2018 averaged 16.5 yards a game with BRADY, the team that won the superbowl.... Cobb averaged 42.6 yards a game with a team that didn't even make the playoffs.... on top of that, Cobb had almost 2x the amount of receptions as patterson did in 2018. Remember in 2017 when Rodgers played 6 games, Cobb still had 653 yards, Patterson had 309 yards in 2017 with 0 TDS.

Cobb at his age is better in every category in 2017 and 2018 than Patterson.

Cobb might be one of those special circumstance returners, but I don't think he is prepared for fulltime duty.

That said, if I were running the team, here you go Randall you do it all.

The reality is there just aren’t many good returners in the NFL anymore, and the value of a kickoff returner has dwindled to almost nothing with the rule changes.

A good punt returner can provide some value but, on average, the best returners also fumble more for obvious reasons. So in a given season only a small handful of returners truly offer a net positive. Tavon Austin is a very gifted punt returner who still offers minimal net value due to fumbles and negative yardage returns.

This is hilarious. First he’s too slow, then it’s that he can’t turn, he plays the lesser WRs, now it’s that he sits back on routes because he doesn’t trust his speed.

...and now we’re back to his straight line speed. Dude. He runs a sub-4.4 and is one of the fastest DBs in the league.

Honestly, this would be an impressive troll job. He’s fast, fluid, really aggressive, and excels in man coverage. Yet you’d have me believe he’s too slow, doesn’t have good hips, sits back on routes, and is better in zone.

Can you point me to the games that illustrate your hook/9 theory. I’d love to take a look, and after that doesn’t hold up, I can’t wait to hear what’s next.
All you have to do is google or youtube games of the cowboys in the last 3 weeks and playoffs. Yes players can have very good speed but not have good change of direction. Theyre humans not video games. Byron jones is not a fluid athlete.

weakness in his draft profile
WEAKNESSES
Plays with high center of gravity. Has difficulty gearing down quickly and changing directions. Doesn't always play with feet under him. Will lose balance and footing too often. Not a quick-twitch athlete. Feet show noticeable stall before firing forward out of backpedal. Willing to tackle but not a physical player. Suffered season-ending shoulder injury in seventh game of 2014 season.

this shows in his play. maybe you need to watch the guy play instead of just reading articles about him not giving up tds.

Heres something else for you.
In the final 5 games including the playoffs, Dallas gave up 5td passes. Byron gave up 3 of them.

Trust me i know what im looking at, clearly you dont.

I think Austin's fumbling history on returns makes it likely that we will use Cobb like we did Beasley. When it's likely to result in a fair catch deep in our territory, Cobb goes in. When there's the high probability of a return, Austin goes in. The only difference from last year is that Cobb is actually a threat if he does get the opportunity to return one.

Has a KO return for TD to his credit.

Granted that happened in his rookie year, but hey.

I'm curious if he'll be the kickoff return man. Last year, we used Deonte Thompson and then when we cut Thompson we used Jourdan Lewis.

Dude is an Eagles fan posting as a Dallas fan. All you need to do is check out his posting history to see for yourself.

Hates everything Dallas does.

Don’t waste your time trying to talk sense to him... although you made perfect sense in this thread.

The way I look at it, is Cobb is here now and I wont judge him till about game 6.
Give him a chance to show what he can do with dak and the cowboys.
What a player did in the past with other teams is often meaningless whether it was good or bad.

Aaron Rodgers has always been cautious with the football. His problem wasn't that he couldn't throw or see, his problem was the lack of mobility due to his week one injury.

Sure. I agree. Last year was out of the ordinary. I remember reading how he was throwing the ball away at record paces and the moment he even sniffed a sack he was bailing out

Rodgers also had Devonte Adams and Jordy Nelson to throw to. The ball got spread around. Until Cooper came mid season last year Beasley hadn’t had a top receiver to share balls with since Dez in 2014, amd the he had 420 yards.

i just have to say, someone saying cordarelle patterson "can play anywhere" is hilarious. he famously went to NE and was used as basically a RB instead of a WR because he couldn't cut it at WR.
