Eddie Lacy, Mason Crosby earn NFC monthly awards

Packers RB Eddie Lacy has been named the NFC Offensive Rookie of the Month for October, while K Mason Crosby has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month.

In four games in October — all Green Bay wins — Lacy had 97 carries for 395 yards and two TDs. He averaged 4.1 yards per carry. He also added 11 receptions out of the backfield for 47 yards, giving him 442 yards from scrimmage in four games. That’s an average of 110.5 yards from scrimmage per game.

Crosby made 13 of 15 field goal attempts in the month and all 11 of his extra points for a total of 50 points. He tied a franchise record with five field goals against Detroit in Week 5 and then added four more field goals the following week at Baltimore.

Five of Crosby’s field goals in the month were from 45 yards or longer, with his two misses coming from 44 and 52 yards. He also added three touchbacks on kickoffs this past week at Minnesota when he took over kickoff duties against dangerous Vikings returner Cordarrelle Patterson.

This is the second time in his career that Crosby has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month. He also won the award in November of his rookie year in 2007.

    I remember during the off-season when everyone was yelling about how Crosby should be cut and how Ted Thompson would be stupid to keep him. Now there are nothing but kind words. Lol. I knew Crosby would come around eventually.

    Congrats to Lacy and Crosby! Glad you play for us and I’ll bet the Bears aren’t looking forward to playing any of us!

    It’s great to see Mason Crosby doing well. He’s at least back to the capacity of a normal kicker from the 30-40 yard range. That’s a vast improvement.

    Even more positive is his accuracy from 40+ yards. That was his biggest problem last year. A good kicker should also be very accurate from 40-49.

    Now 50+? That kind of range is pushing it, and criticism of him for missing those kinds of kicks was always misplaced. I hope the new Lambeau Field changes the wind patterns and allows him to expand his range. Sure, that would make the opponents kickers more accurate as well. But GB is better at getting up and down the field; this would give Mason even more chances to shine!

    What can you say about Eddie Lacy? Being a plus sized athlete myself it’s nice to see that big guys, even if they might be a little oversized, can get it done. If Eddie stays as fast for his weight as he shows he is now, it will be great to see him punish defenses in the freezing cold of the Tundra come December and January!!

    I’m loving what I see from Lacy so far; good job Eddie!

    As for Mason, what an incredible turnaround. Well done! I’m proud of the Packers for standing up for him when everybody else was bashing him in the media; that’s what a team should do…stick by your guys even in the worst of times.

    Lacy is going to be another AP!! Starks had a good game too.

    Some may say he had no choice in order to stick around, but it still took a lot of guts for Crosby to agree to restructure his contract, making it very incentive driven. A HUGE part of a successful kicker is confidence, so it was great to see that he had enough confidence in himself to do it. That was the first good sign of how he was approaching the season, with past problems buried from his mind. Attaboy, Mason — earn EVERY PENNY of it back!

    How much a difference one player can make. Lacey has given Green Bay a run game, a stable, powerful, reliable run game. One man. Wow.

    The O line has done a much better job of creating running lanes this year too. That can be seen in that three different rushers have rushed for over 100 yards this year, including Starks and Franklin in addition to Lacy. It is a great thing to see because before we saw far too many runs right into a solid wall.
