    That botched Punt and Him running to get the 4th down that probably was a game changer early on. Also he kicks really good punts pinning people back.

    He's a punter, not like a REAL player. :x3: Like a fire extinguisher you hope to never need to use him but he comes in handy when required.

    Masthay is the best ginger punter in the NFL

    Jon Ryan is pretty good too. But how many times has he even needed to punt this season.!?

    IMO, Masthay was the player of the game in the NFC Championship game. He kicked the hell out of that ball; deep and long

    Punters are good and all but he fumbled twice on the same play, with barely getting hit. I'm glad he knows how to get rid of the ball, but try to learn some ball security

    I think being good is having the awareness and ability to sidestep a 200 lb ST madmen lunging at you. The rest... definitely luck.

    I gave him major props in the Jets game last year. We played a field position game and it was Mastay's leg that helped us win the game. He's a good punter and deserves to take his part in why the Packers are a successful team.

    Yeah, how that rusher got as free as he did was ridiculous. Great awareness by Masthay to pick it up and run with it. Fumbling twice all by himself was odd but overall a great play.

    Punters and kickers are on the totem pole right above linemen.

    Kudos to Tim for not getting that punt blocked and I think the defender may have hit the ball out of his hands on the first fumble. But IMO there isn’t any excuse for the way he carried the ball after he picked it up. Once he reached the first down marker he should have had both hands on it and before then, he should have had it tucked in his elbow. Instead he was carrying it away from his body, in one hand. (No player should do that IMO - not DBs, WRs, QBs, and certainly not punters!) Yes, I know he’s not a RB but c’mon, he handles the football a lot and has been around the game long enough to know better.

    However, the Packers have finally found their punter. His stats aren't great but he's a solid punter and holder for Crosby.

    I cant imagine he gets many ball security drills to practice. He's forgiven by me. :)

    That play was very lucky on our part.... and Timmy tried to fumble it away it seemed!
    Good breaks happen for some team in every game.... we'll take em!
