We hear the arrow is pointing up for Packers first-year P Tim Masthay, who team insiders believe has proven to be a dramatic upgrade over last year's punter, the erratic Jeremy Kapinos. Masthay started off the season on a high after beating out Australian native Chris Bryan in a battle for the punting job that we are told could not have been any tighter. But things took a major turn for the worst for Masthay in Week Three, when a 19.0 net average in the loss to the Bears — due mostly to Devin Hester's 62-yard TD return — led to him being put on notice by a very unhappy Mike McCarthy. Masthay responded by showing steady improvement in almost every game since the Bears debacle, including an outing in Week Eight in the Packers' road shutout of the Jets (eight punts for 44.0 gross yards, including five inside the 20) that McCarthy called the finest punting performance he had ever seen.
