Playoff captains elected

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 7, 2011 – 11:06 am

During the regular season, the Packers rotate game captains each week. One player is selected to represent the offense, defense and special teams as a captain for a particular game.

But for the playoffs, the team votes on its captains for the duration of the postseason — selecting two players from each of the three phases. Players voted for their captains earlier this week.

This year’s Green Bay playoff captains are:

Offense — QB  Aaron Rodgers and WR Greg Jennings

Defense — CB Charles Woodson and LB A.J. Hawk

Special teams — CB Jarrett Bush and K Mason Crosby

Rodgers and Woodson were both playoff captains last year. Woodson and Jennings were selected to the NFC Pro Bowl squad this year, while Rodgers and Hawk are Pro Bowl alternates.

Rodgers posted his second consecutive season with a passer rating above 100 (101.2), Woodson set career highs in both tackles (105) and forced fumbles (five) this season, Jennings tied his career high with 12 TDs, and Hawk led the team in tackles (134) for the third time in five years and set a career high with three INTs. Bush tied for second on the team with 12 special teams tackles, and he also had a forced fumble and fumble recovery on the coverage units. Crosby topped 100 points for the fourth consecutive year.

All six players will have a special ‘C’ sewn onto their jerseys for Sunday’s game in Philadelphia, and they will continue to wear the ‘C’ for any subsequent games should the Packers advance.
