Two weeks missing fairly routine FGs. Obviously not a concern for a game like today but a huuuge concern for a close game with the winning score less than a TD. I haven't heard that he has any injuries. Maybe the placeholder and him are not entirely on the same page.

So are Crosby's misses an aberration or something to be concerned about?

not really. It's not like the last time that he was struggling. Then his kicks were starting off bad and just got worse. Now his kicks are on target and hard enough. But then they knuckle, and no telling where it goes. Knuckle balls are usually caused by hitting the ball square, or hard. If he can get a little less of the ball, it shouldn't knuckle like it has been.

Worried about crosby?

no.

I'm worried Ted might get a papercut when he signs Nate Kaeding.

Fix it Mason!

I'm a little worried about his mental state. He seems to normally miss an important kicks with tons of pressure on him... but just seems like his confidence has taken a hit. I think Mike McCarthy use be trying to get him used to the pressure.

Make him do FG kicks... and the whole team (or at least those under 285) have to go gasser right after every miss. That would put some pressure on him... and maybe make the linemen do them too... but maybe shorter distance...

Also make the TE and WR groups do gasser for their drops... they've gotten out of hand (literally)

Kicking the football isn't as easy as you think. Everyone misses from time to time. I'll only begin to worrie if he misses a FG that would give us the lead or tie it late in the game.

Maybe it's time to bring a kicking expert and a sports psychologist in to work with him.

I think he could have tied the Colts game and missed it badly.

wpr (9m) : Seriously Smokey? DId you forget to take your meds?
Cheesey (4h) : "Wonderlic", it's how many licks you "wonder" it takes to get to the middle of a Tootsie Pop.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Stop putting words in other peoples mouth. Worry about YOU, no one else. Move on.
Smokey (12h) : Fine wpr, U2 has your's and the other's permission to piss on any member at any time. woof
Zero2Cool (12h) : But we can assume if someone doesn't know, they can ask, or perform an internet search. Move on.
Smokey (13h) : Potential NFL Draftees and Players are asked to take it to score how smart they are .
Smokey (13h) : Wonderlic is a cognitive ability test, usually administered to new employees.
Smokey (13h) : It should not just be assumed that everyone knows what,"Wonderlic" is .
Zero2Cool (14h) : Most players don't care about wonderlic. Some agents prep players. Not reasonable standard.
beast (14h) : We shouldn't judge. ..
uffda udfa (14h) : He has a rep for keen football intelligence. Some guys just don't come across as bright.
uffda udfa (14h) : What thing should we judge intelligence on? Wonderlic is out to you. How he sounds is out.. what is criteria?
uffda udfa (14h) : Are you taking issue with him not being particularly bright? Based on what?
beast (15h) : It's sad your judging a person brightness on such shallow things...
shield4life (24-Jan) : Resign Nick Perry
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Need some strong sharp passionate voices on D. Daniels gives great quotes.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Nick Perry seems to be the team leader as he was giving pregame speeches that seemed very uninspiring.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Morgan and his 14 wonderlic. Ever hear him talk? Man, not a bright guy at all.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Burnett needs to be replaced. That's our leader? Or one of them? No, thanks.
beast (23-Jan) : For the secondary, I think Burnett/Haha are the leaders.

Smokey (23-Jan) : DEFENSE RULES !
Zero2Cool (23-Jan) : Think you need to defensive leaders. Front Seven and Secondary. We seem to lack both. Daniels is closest.
beast (23-Jan) : Packers players had a right to complain when they were being bullied by Mike Daniels... just talking about Packers ;-) jk
Zero2Cool (23-Jan) : It was the 26th largest margin since 1940. Feels much worse
