Hey, back off! He sealed the win with his last FG and made lots of people money in the betting world!

Not gonna lie, he saved me with that spread.

But I don't understand where his lack of confidence is coming from. His rookie year was great, and after that he's been all sorts of inconsistent. Troy Aikman was going off saying he was one of the NFL's best kickers not too long ago, but in my opinion he's never even been close to being in that category.

The Packers need to bring someone in to scare him. I like Mason, but has to shape up.

He redeemed himself.. I thank Greg Jennings, it put a big smile on my face after his sideline antics during a game that was scary to watch. Hope we keep Greg!

Dude's been good, but he's never been clutch.

He's willing to kick in Lambeau, which will tend to skew your % downward.

But I think MM's been fucking with dude's head way too much. This started in the Family Night Scrimmage. Remember that? They put in those new jumbo trons, so they wanted to test how the wind flows in the stadium now. So they spent like 45 minutes kicking from like 60 yards out. They even had linemen kicking extra points.

Then even when the season started, they've been having Crosby kick a disproportionate number of kicks from 50+.

So yeah, he's never been "the best." But I really think they've fucked with his head just too damn much.

I agree. Even when he missed the kick the end the first half Green Bay gave up a huge sack and did nothing to try and get a little closer instead let the time run down before going for the kick. The playcalling and game management has not helped in my opinion. Same with the critical miss against Indy.

I love him. He scared the crap out of me, I lost ALL confidence in him, as I am a wishy-washy bitch when it comes to these kickers, anyway. I must be alone in my dichotomy.

I can't say I am through with him but I am extremely frustrated with him. Lambeau Field and lots of long attempts aside he needs to be money from 45 yards in. He is not. He will continue to limp along the rest of the year and reboot over the off season. That may not be in GB.
there is no use bringing someone else in I doubt there is anyone of any quality sitting at home sticking pins into a Crosby doll every time he attempts a FG.

If that is the case than let me be the first to say that it is about damn time that we cut Starks, Finley, Nelson, Cobb, Rodgers, Mathews, Shields and MM!

The last time we were absolutely sure he was completely done and crucified him he went on a completely awesome tear to the point that we forgot about it and must now do the absolutely new tear-down of his worthless ass. We did win, though, I must mention.

Oh, I remember.. but I am often wrong ahead of the curve as well. Like the comment that Rodgers won't make as many of those "WOW" type throws... he just does it without as many oh Shits.

You know what, STFU! You weren't alone, quit this self pat on the back as if you're fricking holier than ALL! THINK! Duh!




They were talking on the radio that if Mason Crosby misses on in the post season, that he'll be let go. That's their opinion, not based on facts of any kind. I'd like to know if the hold is bad or something. Mason won't say, unlike Ryan Longwell did very openly. I think the holds are fine and he's just hitting it bad.

when they replayed the 2nd miss, the hold looked fine but it is a quick shot of the ball being set down and what do I really know about the art of kicking the freakin ball?

He's never been very good in clutch situations, though the Packers haven't helped him out much. Nevertheless, this team has a chance to go on a run when their healthy and you don't want the kicker to prevent that from happening. I suspect the Packers will workout another kicker soon to send Crosby a message. If he doesn't improve, I think they'll make a switch before the season ends.

Yeah, I don't know the "art" of it myself. I used to kick a lot in high school, but never anything impressive lol

Heard Crosby tried to hang himself after the game.

Couldn't kick the chair out from under him.
