Game ball winners vs. Washington

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 16, 2013 – 4:30 pm

The Packers’ coaching staff has awarded four game balls to individual players for their performances in the 38-20 victory over Washington on Sunday.

On offense, QB Aaron Rodgers and WR James Jones were recipients On defense, CB Sam Shields was recognized, and on special teams, it was CB Davon House.

Rodgers completed 34 of 42 passes for a single-game franchise-record-tying 480 yards, with four TDs and a 146.0 passer rating. Jones set career highs with 11 receptions for 178 yards, with half of those yards coming after the catch.

Shields was credited with six solo tackles, one assist and four passes broken up, while House recorded a tackle on both kickoff and punt coverage, following up a strong individual special-teams performance from Week 1.

    What about Starks and Cob?

    I think the whole team should get a game ball, but that’s not exactly practical, is it. Really liked the two Mikes on defense!

    Starks should have received a game ball here.

    WTH? No Starks and and no Off lineman? They accomplished something that hasn’t been done in 44 games?

    Really, Starks had a great game. No love!! As you can tell Packer Nation a little upset at the choices. Great game buddy!

    For sure, first 100 yard rushing game in over 3 years, Starks Deserves a game ball! Can you imagine if we get Lacy running and Starks, Unstoppable!

    Mr. James Starks,
    Your post game video comments yesterday confirmed my belief in you. You are a valuable team mate. Certainly true.
    Thanks for the yardage.

    I agree, Starks should get a game ball too! Aaron works his magic every game win or lose; but nobody has run for over 100 yards in 3 years. Mike, give the man a game ball, he deserves it!

    James Starks deserved a game ball!! 132 yards and a TD! Come on Man!!

    Starks shouldve gotten one!

    Just because Aaron “works his magic every game” doesn’t mean we should undervalue him or take him for granted. Still, maybe they did give the other offensive game ball to the wrong James. :)

    James Starks, you absolutely deserve a game ball. Coach Mc Carthy, make this right and please give him a game ball!

    Agree, would have given one to Starks…..Great game Packers!

    Looks like everyone is jumping on the J.S. bandwagon, at least until he gets the fumbles or gets injured, again. Is Eddie Lacy out of a starting job, when he comes off his concussion?

    Starks should have ,since they havent had a 100 yard rusher in 44 games! One more game ball werent have hurt anyone!

    I think the whole team could have been given a game ball, but and of course the guys that got a ball deserved it. But my point is how can you ignore Starks. He really deserved it! The offensive line…nothing would happen without them.

    Have to join in on the chorus of people asking where the game ball is for Starks. He had a phenomenal game.

  18. By guy_who_made_a_comment on Sep 17, 2013 | Reply

    It’s highly likely that Starks didn’t get a game ball because he failed to pick up blitzes a couple of times which led to sacks. You have to be a complete back, not just a runner.

    I agree with others where is the game ball for Starks. Also Cobb and Nelson did a good job catching and scoring. Starks is usually getting ripped for his injury riddled seasons so when he does a very good job he should also be recognized. Come on this would mean more to him than another ball to Rodgers.

    Didn’t House have a big-time sack too? Where’s that in the stats? Get sum.
