They shouldn't do that to him. Just throw a freakin hail mary.

Lowering his % makes him look like an asshole. Mike McCarthy and Arodge are such stat freaks that it arguably detracts from on field performance. Yet when it comes to the kicker, they'll hang him out there to dry every time.

58 is a long long way. I don't mind then taking the shot like that when they have the lead. It was inside so there was no wind.

It's fine they tried it, but I had absolutely no confidence that he would make it. Crosby just doesn't seem that clutch to me. I'd almost rather a guy with a weaker leg and better accuracy, honestly. Crosby is good, but let's not forget he's also getting paid really well. Probably too much, honestly.

Thing is when he kicks from 35-40-45 he usually has a lot of leg to get it from 50 or 55 as long as it stays straight. I believe it's in the mind that he has to hit it harder and "just right" which makes him miss by 10 miles. If he'd just keep whatever mind set he has on the shorter ones he'd at least give himself a shot as his accuracy is usually good on those.

It looks like Crosby, on the long kicks is getting to much of the ball, because they are knuckling terribly. While on the shorter kicks the ball comes off end over end nicely.

Ironic you should post this..

While watching the Raiders game today I saw Janakowski miss his first FG of the year. It was from 65 and it was about 4 yards short, but right in the middle of the pipes.

I then went to the stats to check out who else beside Janakowski was perfect in the first 6 weeks. That is when I looked up Crosby.

Crosby has hit 72.7% of his attempts which places him 31st in the NFL in FG success percentage if one would look at that stat.

HOWEVER...

He is hitting 100% of his kicks from under 49 yards He is 1 for 4 or hitting 25% of F.G. attempts over 50 yards

I've been noticing big penetration up the middle all year on field goals and XPs, maybe it's gotten into Crosby's head? On his final FG, someone got through but the kick was abnormally high, especially for a 48 yarder... Which likely prevented a block. And his failed attempt before that, I could have sworn someone got a fingertip on it... I didn't see contact but the ball seemed to come out more or less straight and took a sharp, wobbly turn like you'd see if someone got just a little piece of it.

Bottom line: Am I delusional, or do we have a real problem here? Not completely on subject, but if Crosby doesn't have confidence that he can take a low trajectory that's going to affect him negatively.

No I seen this too. In the Colts game miss I thought it was blocked at first cause they had intense pressure up the middle on it and it went way left. Part of me thinks if it wasn't blocked and he would have hit it straight, it would have been blocked.

For the record, if you have to consistently rely on 50+ yard kicks, your team is doing something wrong.

It's not so much relying on them for the Packers, but it is a GREAT weapon to have. Unfortunately for the Packers, Crosby isn't much of a weapon in that regard, despite his leg strength. To be fair, not a lot of kickers are. The Packers certainly give him the opportunities to prove he can consistently be that weapon, though.
