GREEN BAY — Four Packers players were awarded game balls by the coaching staff for their performances in Green Bay’s 38-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

On offense, the game balls went to offensive tackles Bryan Bulaga and David Bakhtiari. Their blocking on the edges contributed to RBs Eddie Lacy and James Starks averaging better than five yards per carry each, while QB Aaron Rodgers posted a lofty 154.5 passer rating.

On defense, a game ball went to CB Casey Hayward, who intercepted a pass for the second straight game. Hayward now has eight interceptions in his career.

On special teams, a game ball went to veteran Jarrett Bush, who played 26 snaps on special teams alone and posted a season-high three coverage tackles.

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.

Five players awarded game balls vs. Chicago

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 31, 2013 – 8:09 pm

The Packers coaching staff awarded game balls to five players for their performances at Chicago in Week 17.

CB Jarrett Bush was recognized on special teams, while WR Jordy Nelson and RB James Starks were the recipients on offense, plus CB Tramon Williams and LB Andy Mulumba on defense.

Bush had a tackle on kickoff coverage and a forced fumble on a Bears kickoff return. He also recovered a fumble by teammate Micah Hyde on a punt return.

Nelson had a career-high 10 receptions and a season-high 161 yards, while Starks had 11 rushes for 88 yards as part of the offense’s four-TD output. Nelson’s 161 yards were just one yard shy of his single-game career high, while Starks’ 88 yards were his most this season since Week 2.

Williams was credited with six total tackles (five solo) with two pass break-ups and one forced fumble. Mulumba, an undrafted rookie, had a sack among two tackles for loss and three total tackles.

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.

If necessary, McCarthy prepared to go with just two RBs

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 19, 2013 – 4:36 pm

With RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) and FB John Kuhn (hamstring) still not having practiced this week, Mike McCarthy said on Thursday he’s prepared to go into Sunday’s game at Cincinnati with just two running backs — James Starks and Johnathan Franklin — if he has to.

“I’m prepared. That’s my job,” McCarthy said. “The preference is not to go into the game with two running backs. We’ll be much better prepared than we were two years ago in Kansas City.”

McCarthy referred to that game as a “hard lesson,” as the Packers’ only healthy RBs for that contest were Ryan Grant and Kuhn, and Grant had bruised ribs coming in. McCarthy said the game got to a point in the second half where “it was time to run the ball,” but Grant had to sit out a series or two and the Packers didn’t have the firepower in the backfield to make it go.

The Packers do have one RB on the practice squad, rookie Michael Hill from Missouri Western, so if neither Lacy nor Kuhn can play, Hill would be a possible third back, but a player would have to be released in order for Hill to be signed to the 53-man roster.

An emergency option would be WR Randall Cobb, who has carried the ball out of the backfield at times the past two seasons, but McCarthy said he’d never put Cobb in a workhorse-type position.

“I don’t want to make a living running the ball with Randall Cobb, let’s be honest,” McCarthy said. “Randall is a dynamic player, but he doesn’t need to be lined up behind center carrying the ball 20 times. That’s not the plan.”

It’s also not the plan to automatically sit all of the Packers’ injured players because the bye week is coming up, though McCarthy did indicate S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) is a “longshot” to play this week.

In Thursday’s full-pads practice, CB Jarrett Bush (hamstring) joined Burnett, Lacy and Kuhn as a non-participant, while TE Jermichael Finley (toe) and DE Johnny Jolly (neck) practiced but were limited. G T.J. Lang (back) was added to the report as a limited participant, but McCarthy didn’t believe his injury was anything serious.
