Cobb "good to go" for regular season opener

After injuring his biceps during the offseason, Packers WR Randall Cobb did not play a snap during the team's 1-3 preseason. But now, due to some rubber sleeve on his arm, he will join fellow Packers star wide receiver Jordy Nelson in the team's opener this Sunday in San Francisco. 

“I have a little padding under it,” Cobb said of the sleeve. “Just a little protection. There’s no compression on it. It’s just a sleeve, like wearing a long sleeve shirt. “I’m not having any problems with it. Good to go.”

Now that Cobb is also playing this weekend, I'm starting to believe that the Packers might win this one after all. I still consider the 49ers three point favorites, but it won't be a huge surprise to me if Green Bay come out on top.

If he stays healthy, Randall Cobb will get 100 catches this year. I think he is going to explode -- the kid is just too smart, can identify defenses now and is on the same page as Rodgers.

Still can't bring myself to predicting a victory, but with Cobb availabe, that will give us a puncher's chance.
