Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey took the blame for the costly blocked punt in the second quarter that gave the Packers a touchdown in their 24-15 victory over the Jaguars.
He said the Jaguars players were too slow in setting up the play and gave Davon House time to abandon Kevin Elliott on the outside and rush in and block Bryan Angers punt. Dezmon Moses recovered in the end zone.
It took only 1.94 seconds from snap to the block, but Mularkey said the problem occurred before the ball was snapped.
Ill take responsibility for that. Our tempo was slow, Mularkey said. That gave them a chance to creep in. Thats nobodys fault but mine. Our tempo would have prevented that guy from getting in so quickly.
The Packers designed the play during the week.
Thats something we talked about on Monday and Tuesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. You have to credit [special teams coordinator] Shawn Slocum and [special teams assistant] Chad Morton with their planning. As far as the design and execution of it, and the finish, it was excellent. It was a huge play in the game. Source: Florida Times Union Attached Thumbnails

The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t an offensive juggernaut. In fact, they rank dead last in the NFL in total offense.
In order to help Blaine Gabbert and Maurice Jones-Drew they traded up to the fifth pick in the NFL draft to select Justin Blackmon and so far the jury is still out.
Reports by Pro Football Talk surfaced last week that “He was still learning to be an NFL receiver...

GREEN BAY, Wis. It had been more than 20 years since the Packers blocked a punt for a touchdown prior to Sunday's game. Apparently, all it took to end that drought was having only 10 players on the field.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was an ugly win for the Packers. Or, in Jermichael Finleys words, a real nasty win. It wasnt the type of game that the team will look back on with pride, but Green Bay (now 5-3) hit the midway point of its season with its third consecutive victory.

It's always rough to watch the Jaguars lose, but today's loss gave me reason to hope in an otherwise unbearable season. The Jaguars played well, but they were done in by their own mistakes. Last week, the Jaguars would have beat the Raiders comfortably had Blaine Gabbert remained in the game. This week, the Jaguars may have won against a quality opponent if not for a blocked...

According to the state-by-state breakdown, Pennsylvania, and specifically Philadelphia, are presumably not going to escape the onslaught of Hurricane Sandy.
I’m not a Green Bay Packers fan, but I’ve always respected the franchise. I’ve also always thought the Lambeau Leap was a fantastic tradition that connected the players on the team to the die-hard fans closest to the action on the field.
