Vaughtsviews.com reader Sarah White of Nashville had a friend who works in the Alcoa (Tenn.) school system who shared this information with her about Randall Cobb that I thought certainly was worth sharing with everyone;
“Okay, so for those of you who haven’t kept up with it recently, Randall is still #1 in the NFL in all-purpose yards for this season. What I find odd is that nobody has been mentioning during games that he has a legitimate shot to break the ALL-TIME NFL RECORD!!! He is only 606 yards away from breaking (605 away from tying) the all-time record that was set by Darren Sproles last season.
“Since there are only 3 games left, that means he only needs 202 yards per game to break the record. To put that in perspective, he had 191 total yards Sunday night. And just in case he doesn’t get the NFL’s all-time record, he’s only 160 yards away from breaking Green Bay’s franchise record. He’s currently already 85th on the NFL’s all-time list ahead of names like O.J. Simpson, Emmitt Smith, Roger Craig, Walter Payton, Hershel Walker, and Eric Dickerson. I just wanted to make sure y’all know about what I’m now calling the ‘Randall Watch!’”
