Now Masthay might be the Packers' most improved player, turning what has been one of the team's biggest weaknesses in recent seasons into a solid strength going into the Packers' Feb. 6 Super Bowl matchup with Pittsburgh.||||||| Masthay had one of his best games of the season in Sunday's NFC championship game victory at Chicago, bottling up Bears returner Devin Hester by placing five of his eight punts inside the 20-yard line. Hester had only three punt returns for 16 yards all afternoon, meaning Masthay and the Packers' punt coverage unit essentially took away the Bears' most formidable big-play threat.
