Four players earn game balls for win vs. Atlanta

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 10, 2013 – 10:00 am

The Packers coaching staff has awarded game balls to four players for their performances in the 22-21 victory over Atlanta on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

TE Andrew Quarless was honored on offense as he posted career highs with six receptions for 66 yards. Quarless also caught a 2-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter — his first touchdown since his rookie season of 2010 — that provided the winning points.

On defense, DE Johnny Jolly and CB Jarrett Bush were the recipients. Jolly was credited with a handful of tackles, including one for loss, plus a fumble recovery and a batted pass. Bush, who played the dime defensive back spot, made two huge plays down the stretch. He broke up a fourth-down pass to TE Tony Gonzalez with the Falcons on the edge of field-goal range with just under two minutes left, and then he intercepted QB Matt Ryan with four seconds left to seal the win.

S Sean Richardson received the game ball on special teams. Richardson, who got his most extensive action of the season on defense, taking over at safety for M.D. Jennings, was credited with one coverage tackle, and he was part of a solid day for the return units, as CB Micah Hyde averaged 25.3 yards on three kickoff returns and added a 12-yard punt return.

    Great job by the four, but let’s also congratulate Mason Crosby on his new NFL record of most points scored by any player in his first 7 seasons. Great job Mason and kudos to MM and TT for sticking with Mason throughout last season and training camp this summer!

    Those recipients are all fine,
    But what about Jordy Nelson? Maybe we take for granted his clutch athletic abilities and manliness in his approach to the game because he is so consistent??

    It’s just as well that I’m not handing out the game balls, I’d probably give one to each player on D. for shutting out the Falcons – 2nd half. Kudos to Jarrett, Johnny, Andrew, and Sean. Way to go Mason and Tim!

    All those mentioned above and how about Matt stepping up to the plate as well?? People forget the limited amount of playing time he really has had. He was instrumental in moving the ball down the field!! We gave them 14 points and the whole team did not give up on each other. Much better effort this week. Jordy is the man plane and simple, how many clutch catches has he made this year, a bunch!! Get the Boy’s this week, Eddie the monster!!!

    The o line is a problem. Injuries haven’t helped. A left tackle in the next draft is a must. A safety and big cornerback also air

    That’s why Woodson was let go…Father Time is unforgiving. I see it everyday… When I get up!! Ha! That big corner back and safety should be a priority even if a free agent is available. I don’t want Aaron wasted the way Brett was. Must go to the well once in a while! Like Woodson and Reggie or Brett for that matter

    Thus it is only natural that they form the vanguard of man’s technological progress towards a world run by the same artificial intelligence and virtual reality that the Greys themselves personify. As we gleefully look forward to the possibilities now becoming open to us of transforming our bodies through computer chip implants into bio-machines capable of super-human feats we little realise that we may well be providing a bio robotic species, the greys, with the potential to ensure the continuance of its program and thus its own survival through us. What price humanity?
