Grant and McCarthy win weekly awards

Thanks, no doubt, to the surge of votes from readers of (yes, a shameless plug, but what the heck), RB Ryan Grant was selected as the FedEx Ground Player of the Week and Head Coach Mike McCarthy was named as the Motorola NFL Coach of the Week. Arizona QB Kurt Warner -- a former Packer, remember??? -- was named the FedEx Air Player of the Week.

As we well remember, Grant racked up 145 yards rushing and a TD in helping demolish Da Bearz last Sunday. And, of course, Coach McCarthy was the whiz who crafted the game plan that led the Pack to that great victory. What was the score again? Oh, yeah: 37-3!

You can read more about Grant's award here and McCarthy's here.

Congrats to Mr. Grant and Coach McCarthy. Oh...and you have 6 more of these awards to win yet this year if you care to. Good luck!
