So it looks like Crosby is verging right on 85% FG accuracy, which is a huge incentive in his contract.

But if there's alot of wind, that could be a problem.

Weather.com is also saying the temps will dip to 1 degree tonight - but that should be well after the game. The Chicago Tribune is predicting wind, however: about 24 miles per hour and flurries – not a big deal to a seventh-year veteran of Green Bay, but still something to manage.

Crosby's 89.3 percentage on field goals is the second highest in #Packers' history behind Jan Stenerud's 91.67 in 1981

I'll admit I thought the Packers erred in not being more aggressive in bringing in starter caliber replacements to compete with Crosby. I thought he was broken (at least in Green Bay), but am pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong. The only real complaint I have is that for a guy with such a strong leg his kickoffs don't seem to travel the same distance as the competition's kickers this year. Lots of returns by opposing teams when their kickers were kicking it deep into or out of the endzone.
