Jaguars Coach Mike Mularky Takes Blame For Blocked Punt By Packers
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 Anger’s 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.
“I’ll take responsibility for that. Our tempo was slow,’’ Mularkey said. “That gave them a chance to creep in. That’s nobody’s fault but mine. Our tempo would have prevented that guy from getting in so quickly.’’
The Packers designed the play during the week.
“That’s 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.’’
