Brett Goode: 2011 Green Bay Packers Evaluation and Report Card
1) Introduction: I wouldn’t mind having Brett Goode’s life. He pals around with Aaron Rodgers, gets a front row seat to watch the Packers every Sunday and does the only job he’s assigned to do very well.
Weight: 255 lbs.
3) Expectations coming into the season: Avoid the closeup. If the long snapper gets a closeup on TV, it’s usually because he just snapped the ball over the punter’s head. Goode managed to stay off TV this season
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Every time Goode hits the punter or the holder right in the hands, it’s a highlight. Lowlights have to be only managing one tackle. At 6-1, 255 pounds, Goode just doesn’t have the size to be an impact player once the ball is kicked.
5) Player’s contribution to the overall team success: Both Mason Crosby and Tim Masthay had good seasons and some of that credit goes to Goode. It means a lot when a long snapper has good velocity and puts the ball right where it needs to be.
6) Player’s contributions in the playoffs: Unfortunately, the Packers had to punt more often than they would have liked. At least Goode’s snaps were accurate.
