Tim Masthay
Tim Masthay

1) Introduction:  Tim Masthay gets the job done. That’s probably the best way to describe him. He doesn’t drastically tilt the field with his powerful punts and pinpoint accuracy, but he does an adequate job. Masthay doesn’t give you much to leap out of your chair and cheer about, but he also doesn’t give you a reason to hurl your TV through the wall after consistently poor punts.

2) Profile:

Timothy James Masthay

  • Age: 26
  • Born: 4/16/1987 in Pittsburgh, Penn.

Career stats and more

3) Expectations coming into the season:  Just keep doing what he does. Masthay has a lot of games where he punts in cold weather and his always hold up well.

4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Masthay’s net average has gotten better every season, topping off at 39.0 yards in 2013. He also notched 17 touchbacks on 34 kickoffs to start the season. If you’re looking for lowlights…well, it’s always a lowlight when Masthay comes on the field because it means the Packers are punting.

5) Player’s contribution to the overall team success:  Masthay’s consistency was a bright spot on an otherwise shaky special teams unit. If there was a special teams breakdown, it was rarely because of something Masthay screwed up.

6) Player’s contributions in the playoffs: Unfortunately, Masthay contributed too much and the Packers didn’t score enough points in their playoff loss.

    The less you hear your punter’s name, the better. Another in a line of good Packer punters.

    Brett Goode, and then the content desert for nine more weeks.

    Oh wait, there’s these things called free agency and the draft coming up and if there’s any two subjects that engender more vitriol than those two , I haven’t seen it.

      I’m sure the McCarthy and Thompson evals will get folks all wound up.

  • Wagszilla

    Best LB on the team.

    One thing I love about Masthay is his willingness to stick his nose in and make a tackle and look like like a football player while doing it. He’s made some fine tackles: too mang really. Some puntefs are SO wimpy. TM is one of the tougher kickers around.

    Good punters don’t get noticed a lot. You only seem to notice them when they leave and are replaced with a crappy one. Masthay doesn’t get much credit for what he does. He’s really solid. If all the players did their jobs as well, we’d be going far deeper into the play-offs.

    For only having one testicle he does fine…
