Masthay NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

286 3

Ain't no joke.

There’s a headline you probably never thought you’d see, but it isn’t a mistake.

As we pointed out in our post-game analysis, punter Tim Masthay had a killer game in the Green Bay Packers 9-0 defeat of the New York Jets. At the time, we called him the game MVP.

Today, there’s word Masthay will be named the NFC’s special teams player of the week.

Against the Jets, Masthay punted eight times for a 44-yard gross average and a 41.5-yard net average. Masthay landed five of his kicks inside the 20 and the Jets had zero return yards on the day.

Obviously, field position was a major factor in the Packers’ victory, as was Masthay’s performance.

Masthay joins kicker Mason Crosby among Packers who have received the special teams player of the week award, this year. Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson each received the defensive award, as well.

    “I can’t tell you how good this feels to say this,” McCarthy said. “This is the finest punting performance I’ve — I’m not exaggerating, I’m not dramatic — the finest performance of that I’ve ever been a part of in all my years on both sides of the ball.
    “I can’t tell you how happy I am for Tim. It makes me want to cry. I thought he was tremendous. … I thought that was remarkable. He just needs to do it every week now and we’ll be fine.”

    I need to see more than two weeks in a row of good punting to be convinced he’s the answer. I’m encouraged that this is a good start, but we need to see some consistency. Things only get more difficult as the weather gets colder.
