Kuhn, Matthews, Shields, Manning earn game balls vs. Vikings

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 7, 2013 – 2:19 pm

Vikings game balls

The coaching staff awarded four game balls from the NFC Wild Card playoff victory over the Vikings on Saturday night. They went to FB John Kuhn on offense, LB Clay Matthews and CB Sam Shields on defense, and rookie LB Terrell Manning on special teams.

Kuhn rushed for a 3-yard TD and caught a 9-yard TD pass, giving him both a rushing and receiving TD for the second time in his career in a playoff game, a first in franchise history. He also scored for the fourth consecutive postseason, the only player in the NFL who can make that claim.

Matthews had two sacks, including a forced fumble and fumble recovery on the second one. The two sacks accounted for 18 lost yards as Matthews had the second two-sack playoff game of his career. The only other player in franchise history to accomplish that is Reggie White.

Shields was credited by the press box statisticians with seven tackles, a team high. He also broke up two passes and had an interception, the third of his career in the postseason.

Manning was credited with two coverage tackles, bringing down Minnesota returner Marcus Sherels on both the first kickoff and first punt of the game. Manning also helped to separate Sherels from the ball when he muffed a punt in the fourth quarter.

    AWESOME! keep it up boys. Alaska is cheering for you!

    It is great yo see all our defence players back and helping out as Team Work should be. Now we have to pull everything the offence has together and keep Rogers off the ground.

    Would have liked to see a games ball go to Walden, he was all over the field from outside linebacker and had some key plays for losses.

    very good choices for game balls but kind of wish harris got one too

    Where’s Walden’s? Dude was everywhere!!

  6. By Darrell on Jan 7, 2013 | Reply

    Yea, I agree…Walden deserves to get one too, but maybe he’ll come thru even bigger in this next game

  7. By billfromc'ville on Jan 7, 2013 | Reply

    No question both Harris and Walden deserve game balls. It was great to see the whole team step up, but they should not have let off the gas in the third and fourth quarters. Maybe MM is not showing his hand too soon. Sure hope that is the case. GO PACK GO!!!!!!

    With Walden on the left and Matthews on the Right no one was going anywhere. I also think MM called a good game and keep our guys from any unneeded enjuries. Whatch out San Fran, Pack is coming with a full crew!!

    How disappointing to not see Donald Driver in the game. Certainly with 10 receivers getting the call, DD should have been one of them. Yes, hard decisions to leave him inactive…. don’t forget your fans!!! It left a ‘sour taste” for the win…he certainly should have been one of the 10 receivers!!

    Erik Walden, and Woodson should have gotten a game ball.
    Manning’s ball is window dressing for not activating Driver
    Matthews is always a fan favorite but, the one sack was by complete accident when the QB feel over backwards when Matthews was on all fours. Funny really.
    Saw Wood tackle AP one on one a couple of times. Man, he is so physical.

    I’m a lifetime Packer fan, but sorry GB. I’m taking SF 34 vs GB 24. The Pack can’t beat SF. Anway, even if thewent to the SB they couldn’t beat Denver.

    Watch out, the Pack is loose!

  13. By Mike H on Jan 7, 2013 | Reply

    Why would a lifetime pack fan say they cant beat SF and wouldn’t beat Denver? Surely, the rest of us don’t feel that way. Go Pack Go!

    Stay humble guys and the super bowl shall be ours. The NFL has changed so much over the last couple years we didnt see it coming. We have our heads straight thanks to the early battle test schedule it has made us tougher. Now other teams are missing players, hopefully they have a speedy recovery.We all finally mature and realize we can be beaten which makes us hungry. I JUST WANT MY PACKERS TO PROOF OUR FRANCHISE IS ELITE AND WE’VE BEEN THAT WAY FOR YEARS TO ME

    Ill take sour taste, we needed extra defenders not extra wrs (clearly if 10 people got a catch)

  16. By Kenny on Jan 8, 2013 | Reply

    I thought Manning was a steal where we got him in the draft. Hopefully, his improved Special Teams play, can springboard him to be more of an impact on the defense next season.

    I have always felt that the fullback position is a vital position and is underrated. We have a great fb in John
    Kuhn thanks to Steelers and TT. He deserves all that he gets and them some . Love the chant Kuuuhhhnnn !

    Donald Driver may be needed before it is all said & done. The defense is coming on at the right time, more pressure up front & much better tackling ! The offense is ready to explode, I got a good feeling about this team… Would love to see the Seahags upset the Dirty Birds.. Super bowl, Here We Come !!!

    Even though the Claymaker did have a charity sack, he had to be in place to get it. Sometimes you cannot measure the havoc he creates on offenses, e.g. hurries, knockdowns, holding penalties, double teams, etc. His presence alone commands attention and will give his teammates opportunities to make plays. Stay healthy Clay! Go Pack Go!

    Good luck this week Pack fans. Your fans travel well. Lotta you guys are on our press democrat blog talking lots of trash.
    Bottom line, Aaron Rodgers is the baddest QB on the planet. Unfortunately for you guys, the teams that are most balanced win football games.
    Teams that have good running games. You don’t. Teams that can stop the run. You can’t.
    Get ready to get Gored, Kaepernicked and Aldon Smithed…

    Clay got one charity sack, but let’s not forget the couple he was robbed of when Webb threw the ball away at the last second. There were at least two and one resulted in an illegal grounding call.
