Video, photos of A.J. Hawk’s ride with Blue Angels

Posted by Mike Spofford on June 2, 2014 – 8:00 am

Packers LB A.J. Hawk took a backseat ride with a U.S. Navy Blue Angels demonstration squadron on Wednesday in La Crosse, Wis., and an in-flight video is available above.

Photos of Hawk’s excursion, which took place at Deke Slayton Airfest, are also available.

Hawk told reporters following Thursday’s OTA practice that he got sick a couple of times, but he called the flight “amazing” and something he’d do again “in a heartbeat.” The ride lasted 50 minutes, and Hawk said as someone who gets carsick, he first got sick less than 15 minutes in but stuck it out and got the thrill of a lifetime.

Packers elect six playoff captains

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 1, 2014 – 4:50 pm

The Packers have voted for and selected their captains for the 2013 postseason.

Unlike some teams, Green Bay doesn’t have season-long captains but chooses captains during the regular season on a weekly basis to go out for the coin toss. For the postseason, these six players will serve as captains and wear a “C” patch on their jerseys for as long as the Packers season continues.

They are QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson on offense, LB A.J. Hawk and S Morgan Burnett on defense, and K Mason Crosby and CB Jarrett Bush on special teams.

This is the first time for Nelson and Burnett to be chosen as playoff captains. Rodgers leads the way with five selections now, followed by Bush with four, and Hawk and Crosby with three apiece.

Nelson has set career highs this season in both receptions (85) and receiving yards (1,314). Hawk led the team in tackles with 153, the seventh time in eight seasons he has either finished first or second on the team in that category. Hawk also posted a career-high five sacks.

Burnett finished second on the team with 104 tackles despite missing the first three games due to injury. Bush had seven tackles and one forced fumble on the coverage units, while Crosby posted the highest field-goal percentage of his seven-year career at 89.1 percent, making 33 of 37 field goals.
