When Tim Masthay prepares to kick off for the Packers, he eyes not the kick returner or the end zone, but the first row of fans.

As long as it doesn't mess up his punting it is great.

I have one thing to say about the article though.

I love how "So I do give a glance to the stands before a kickoff" becomes "Tim Masthay lets his eyes drift downfield to the end zone, to the goal posts, past the security personnel and the photographers. He eyes the first row of fans, though they're so far away they have indistinguishable faces." I guess that's what makes them writers.

I've heard it asked jokingly; Now I ask seriously, can he kick field goals? Does he have reasonable accuracy? any history of place-kicking? It would save a roster spot if he could multi-task. I am no longer negative about Mason Crosby, but the fact is, he gets paid a lot of money for average kicking. Even if we gave Masthay a hefty raise, there probably would be savings. To me, just because other teams don't do it that way is no reason not to have the same guy do punting, kickoffs, AND place-kicking.

I love seeing the ball at the back of the endzone on kickoffs. Washington returned one when they were 6 yards deep. That was rather silly.

He can kick FG but he is the emergency kicker. Of all the players they had in camp this year he would probably be in the lower half for consistency and accuracy.

BTW- I am not trying to knock him. The only proof I have is if Mike thought he could do the job he would not have brought other kickers in to take a look at them. That and a vague remembrance of a story a few years ago that said his leg is pretty good for distance but he is not an NFL kicker. (FG kicker)

beast (4h) : Yeah it's weird, if anything goes wrong the defense and OL get blamed, even if passing game fault
hardrocker950 (6h) : But I put it mostlt on the offense and poor playcalling
hardrocker950 (6h) : I have seen the defense take a lot of flak over the loss..
Cheesey (7h) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (7h) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (9h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (9h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (10h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (10h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (11h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (13h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (14h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (14h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (14h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (15h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (15h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (15h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (15h) : clean?
