The return game

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 21, 2010 – 4:57 pm

Did you know the Packers have never had a kickoff returner average 30 yards per return for an entire season with at least 20 attempts?  It’s only two games and seven returns, but Jordy Nelson is at 31.0 and is giving himself a shot at it.

Also, the Packers rank tied for second in the NFL in starting field position following a kickoff (35.3-yard line). That’s tied for second with New England and behind only Pittsburgh, and both of those teams have run one back to the house already this season.
