Four Packers awarded game balls vs. Jets

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 15, 2014 – 3:00 pm

Game balls went to WR Jordy Nelson on offense, DT Mike Daniels on defense and K Mason Crosby and LB Andy Mulumba on special teams.

The Packers coaching staff has awarded game balls to four players for their performances in the 31-24 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

Game balls went to WR Jordy Nelson on offense, DT Mike Daniels on defense and K Mason Crosby and LB Andy Mulumba on special teams.

Nelson set a career high with 209 receiving yards, including an 80-yard TD that broke a 24-all tie. He became the first Packers player with a 200-yard receiving game since 2004, and his 209 yards tied him for the fourth-highest single-game total in franchise history. Nelson’s 80-yard TD also tied him with Greg Jennings for the most TD receptions of 80-plus yards in a Packers career (four).

Daniels was a disruptive force all game, being credited (press box statistics) with five solo tackles, including two for loss, and a sack. His hit on Jets QB Geno Smith in the second quarter produced a fluttering pass that was picked off by CB Tramon Williams.

Crosby made all three of his FG attempts, including a 55-yarder that was the longest by a Packers kicker ever at Lambeau Field. He has now made 18 straight FGs, dating back to last season. Crosby also kicked four of seven kickoffs for touchbacks.

Mulumba was credited with one special teams tackle but later left the game with a knee injury.

Jordy Nelson’s offensive all-stars cruise past defense, 26-11

Posted by Duke Bobber on June 8, 2014 – 10:02 pm

GRAND CHUTE–A familiar scene for Packers fans played out Sunday at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute — an offensive juggernaut rolling over the opposition. Hosting the charity softball game formerly headlined by Donald Driver, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson and his team of offensive stars handily defeated the all-star lineup of defensive and special teams players, 26-11.

The game was preceded by a home run derby, boasting impressive blasts by former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Scott Tolzien. Tolzien ended up taking home the trophy after outlasting stiff competition from his teammates. Video of the home run derby:

To keep things interesting, cornerback Jarrett Bush challenged Nelson to a home run derby challenge. The loser was required to rattle off push-ups based on the jersey number of his competitor. Since Bush lost, he owed Nelson 87 reps. Video here:

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.
