Eddie Lacy started strong in Pro Bowl debut

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 27, 2014 – 10:59 am

RB Eddie Lacy

RB Eddie Lacy

Packers RB Eddie Lacy had to wait until the second half to get into Sunday’s Pro Bowl in Hawaii, but he didn’t waste any time being productive once his number was called.

Lacy blasted his way for 8 yards on his first carry in the third quarter and had 17 yards on his first four rushes before a pair of negative-yardage carries hurt his numbers. He finished with seven carries for 14 yards, plus one reception for 9 yards that helped set up a TD for Team Sanders.

Lacy was the third of Team Sanders’ running backs to see action, following Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles and Washington’s Alfred Morris. Team Sanders lost to Team Rice, 22-21, on a late TD and 2-point conversion.

Prior to Sunday’s game, Lacy chatted with packers.com about his weeklong experience in Hawaii. Click here to read that.

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 23, 2014 – 10:17 am

140123-lacy-600

Packers RB Eddie Lacy was drafted to be on Team Sanders for Sunday’s Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

For the first time in the Pro Bowl’s history, a draft of players was held with the traditional AFC-NFC format scrapped. Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders were the two GMs, and Lacy was one of three running backs taken by Sanders, along with Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles and Washington’s Alfred Morris.

Sanders selected Indianapolis QB Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick. Lacy is the Packers’ lone representative in the Pro Bowl.

Jeff Saturday takes one last snap, for the AFC

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 28, 2013 – 10:05 am

Packers C Jeff Saturday, who announced late last week he was retiring after the Pro Bowl, switched sides momentarily in Sunday’s all-star game in Hawaii to take one last snap with his longtime teammate, QB Peyton Manning.

Saturday and Manning played a dozen years together as Indianapolis Colts and went to two Super Bowls together. According to Saturday, Manning orchestrated the switcheroo and tribute snap. Saturday played his final NFL season for the Packers in 2012 while Manning is now with the Denver Broncos.

The NFC, coached by the Packers coaching staff, defeated the AFC, 62-35. The only other Packers player to participate in the game was G Josh Sitton, who was appearing in his first Pro Bowl.

Josh Sitton added to NFC Pro Bowl roster

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 20, 2013 – 6:48 pm

Josh SittonPackers G Josh Sitton has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Sitton was a first alternate at guard, and he was named to the team on Sunday when the 49ers advanced to the Super Bowl. San Francisco G Mike Iupati — a Pro Bowl starter for the NFC — will not be participating in the all-star game.

It’s the first Pro Bowl nod for Sitton, who has been an alternate in the past. The Packers coaching staff is coaching the NFC squad for the second straight year. The Pro Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 27, in Hawaii.

Sitton started every game at right guard for the Packers this past season — all 16 in the regular season and both playoff contests.

Aaron Rodgers won’t play in Pro Bowl

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 15, 2013 – 3:12 pm

Aaron Rodgers

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said on his weekly radio show on Tuesday that he will not play in this year’s Pro Bowl due to injuries.

Rodgers didn’t get into many details, but he said he didn’t pass his physical. He specifically mentioned an ongoing ankle issue. He was also kicked in the calf back in Week 6 in Houston and noted how painful that was.

The only other Packers currently on the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster are LB Clay Matthews and C Jeff Saturday, but alternates could still be named to the team over the next week.

Packers coaching staff to coach NFC in Pro Bowl again

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 14, 2013 – 12:00 pm

Mike McCarthy, Pro Bowl coaches

For the second straight year, the Packers coaching staff will coach the NFC in the Pro Bowl.

This year’s game will take place on Sunday, Jan. 27, at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Last year, the AFC beat the NFC, 59-41, after which Packers QB Aaron Rodgers criticized a lack of effort by players on both sides.

The Packers coaching staff got the assignment by virtue of being the highest-seeded NFC team to lose in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Packers were the No. 3 seed. The top two seeds, Atlanta and San Francisco, are playing next weekend for the NFC Championship. Last year, the Packers were the NFC’s top seed but also lost in the divisional round.

The Broncos were the AFC’s top seed this year but lost in double overtime last weekend, so Denver’s coaching staff, led by John Fox, will coach the AFC squad.

This will be Mike McCarthy’s third time as the head coach of the NFC. He also coached the squad following the 2007 season, after the Packers lost in the NFC Championship. Back then, the Pro Bowl was played one week after the Super Bowl, and the coaching staffs of the teams that lost in the conference title games coached the Pro Bowl. Now, the game is played the week before the Super Bowl.

The Packers have three players on this year’s NFC Pro Bowl roster — QB Aaron Rodgers, who is the starter, plus LB Clay Matthews and C Jeff Saturday. Other Packers still have a chance to make it as alternates because players from the teams participating in the Super Bowl do not go to the Pro Bowl, and others drop out for injuries and various additional reasons.

G Josh Sitton is a first alternate, and San Francisco G Mike Iupati is the NFC starter at the position. If the 49ers reach the Super Bowl, Sitton will be added to the NFC roster. Packers KR Randall Cobb is also a first alternate, though Seattle’s Leon Washington was the NFC selection at that position and the Seahawks were eliminated this past weekend.

Other Packers named alternates were FB John Kuhn, DL B.J. Raji, CB Tramon Williams and DB Charles Woodson.
