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.

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 earn game balls vs. Cowboys

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 16, 2013 – 5:09 pm

The Packers coaching staff awarded game balls to five players for their performances against the Cowboys on Sunday.

On offense, QB Matt Flynn and RB Eddie Lacy were the recipients. Flynn completed 26 of 39 passes for 299 yards with four TDs and one INT for a 113.1 passer rating. He led the offense to five consecutive touchdown drives in the second half.

Lacy rushed 21 times for 141 yards and a TD and added 30 yards on four receptions. He went over 1,000 rushing yards for the season, and at 1,028 he’s closing in on John Brockington’s franchise rookie record of 1,105 yards set in 1971. The rushing TD was also Lacy’s eighth of the season, already a team rookie record.

On defense, CBs Sam Shields and Tramon Williams were awarded game balls. The duo combined for 14 tackles, and they each had an interception of Dallas QB Tony Romo in the last three minutes of the game.

Shields’ pick, his third of the season, gave the Packers the ball at midfield, down 36-31 with 2:46 left, and set up the go-ahead TD drive. Williams’ interception, also his third of the season, came with 1:22 left and ended any comeback hopes for the Cowboys after they had fallen behind, 37-36.

K Mason Crosby was the game-ball recipient on special teams. Crosby kicked five touchbacks on seven kickoffs and was good on a 57-yard FG, his fifth FG of 50-plus yards this season.

Eddie Lacy, Mason Crosby earn NFC monthly awards

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 31, 2013 – 9:24 am

131031-october-potm-600

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.

Entire offense, Daniels, Crosby awarded game balls vs. Minnesota

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 30, 2013 – 9:00 am

131030-game-balls-600

The Packers coaching staff awarded game balls to the entire offense, to DE Mike Daniels and to K Mason Crosby from the 44-31 victory at Minnesota.

The offense scored every time it touched the ball — five touchdowns and three field goals — until kneeling down on its final possession. The Packers piled up 464 total yards — 285 passing from QB Aaron Rodgers and 182 rushing, with RBs Eddie Lacy (94 yards) and James Starks (57) combining for 151 of those. WR Jordy Nelson had seven receptions for 123 yards, including a 76-yard TD.

Daniels, the second-year defensive end from Iowa, was the game-ball recipient on defense. Daniels sacked Minnesota QB Christian Ponder twice, the first two-sack game of Daniels’ career. The effort doubled his season sack total to four.

Crosby, the special teams award winner, was 3-for-3 on field goals, from 30, 20 and 45 yards, and made all five of his PATs for 14 total points. Crosby also took over on kickoffs after the Vikings’ Cordarrelle Patterson returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. Crosby’s directional kickoffs helped to keep Patterson in check the rest of the game.

Mason Crosby named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 9, 2013 – 9:54 am

K Mason Crosby

Packers K Mason Crosby has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week following his 5-for-5 day on field goals last Sunday vs. Detroit.

Crosby made kicks from 26, 52, 31, 42 and 45 yards in the Packers’ 22-9 victory, improving his mark to 9-for-9 on the season. A Packers kicker hadn’t made five field goals in a game in 13 years, and he tied the franchise record for most in a single game, matching Chris Jacke (who did it twice, in 1990 and 1996) and Ryan Longwell (2000).

Crosby has now made 13 straight field goals in the regular season, dating back to 2012. Including last year’s two playoff games, he has made 15 in a row. Crosby holds the franchise record with 23 consecutive field goals made in the regular season, which he set from Week 13 of 2010 through Week 12 of 2011.

This marks the fifth time in his career that Crosby has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, and the first time since Week 7 of 2011.

Training camp look in: Crosby perfect in kick competition

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 27, 2013 – 12:02 pm

GREEN BAY–Mason Crosby would seem to be on the verge of retaining the job he’s held since 2007.

In a two-bout, high-stakes kicking competition in Tuesday’s practice at Ray Nitschke Field, Crosby converted all 14 of his field goal attempts. The distances in round one ranged from 33-58 yards and the kicks were into a light wind. In round two, the distances ranged from 35-64 yards and the kickers were downwind. Challenger Nick Ramirez was a combined six of 16, four of seven into the wind and two of nine downwind. He was afforded two extra kicks — both from 58 yards — in the downwind round, and failed to convert either one.

Tuesday’s practice, on possibly the hottest day of training camp, is the last of camp and must be followed by a roster reduction to 75 players by late this afternoon.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.
