First-half observations

Aug. 23, 2013
 

The Packers and Seahawks are tied 3-3 at halftime. Here are some obversations:

*Tim Masthay boomed the opening kickoff 5 yards beyond the end line. Masthay is making a strong push to be the Packers’ kickoff specialist this season. Mason Crosby also had a first-quarter touchback with a kick that went 4 yards beyond the end zone. Masthay must have taken his vitamins – he also had a 56-yard second-quarter punt.

*Former Packers lineman Breno Giacomini started at right tackle for the Seahawks. Giocomini got into a shoving match with members of the Packers defense after Clay Matthews recorded a first-quarter sack. Other former Packers on the Seahawks’ roster include Will Blackmon, Brett Swain and Jon Ryan.

*Jeremy Ross fielded the first Packers’ kickoff return and gained 33 yards. If he keeps that up, he will earn a spot on the roster as a receiver/return man. Ross was also the first Packer to field a punt – he handled a fair catch cleanly. Micah Hyde was next in the punt return rotation.

*The Seahawks had seven double-digit gains in the first quarter: 13, 11, 17, 27, 12, 23 and 14 yards.


*There were a fair number of empty seats for the Midwest Shrine Game that featured “gold package” Milwaukee season ticket holders.
