Sad thing is, I feel bad for the guy. He's pure talent. Just has mind issues. Like Finley. Maybe we should get both of them good shrinks so they can be awesome. (Finley was awesome today).

I actually feel sorry for Mason. The naked pictures he has of McCarthy have obviously caused severe mental issues.

It’s just like anything in life professionally: You have the opportunity to work with an individual every day and you see what they’re about, their mentality, their commitment, their preparation leading up to it. I have no reasons not to believe in him. Now, I can see your pens are all writing and I understand he’s missing kicks in games. The bottom line is this is about performance on Sundays and I have all of the confidence that Mason’s going to get that back because we need him.



I try to trust coach, but missing two FG's in a dome ... that's tough. If it was just one, maybe less critical.

Garu Yepremian has been sighted on Lombardi Ave just this morning. He was seen not only waming up his leg, but actually practicing his passing motion as well.

He told a passer-by...."Not only do you geet good keecker, you geet back-up quarterback, who can pass ball weeth da best of them. And, I sell lots of ties to Packers. Gotta look good at da press conferences."

Crosby better be on the look out. But hey, he could lose his job but end up with a lifetime supply of neckties. Give a couple to the girls as gifts.

Mason has to work his way out of the slump. Plain and simple... to say, not the easiest thing to actually do. He's already worked his way out of one slump, where he went 16-23 in 2009. He had a stretch of 4 misses in 10 attempts that year, and really struggled from +40 (4-7) and + 50 (2-6). Still, he finished the year at 75%.

Bob McGinn's 2009 grade on Crosby:

"Mason Crosby: Tied for 25th in field-goal accuracy (.750) after ranking 26th in 2007 (.795) and 28th in 2008 (.794). The majority of his misses came from the right hash mark. Tied for 11th in average distance per miss (46.6), ranked 16th in average distance per attempt (36.3) and tied for 24th in average distance per make (32.8). On 78 kickoffs when instructed to kick deep, he averaged 68.01 yards (best in Green Bay this decade) and 3.95 seconds of hang time (second best of decade). Adjusted beautifully when asked to kick off directionally or drive it low. Outstanding on onside kicks. Grade: D-plus"

2010 he made 78.6%
2011 he made 85.7%

This looks to be a bigger slump. Hopefully Mason Crosby can climb out of this one to finish the year strong. I like that McCarthy has instilled confidence in Crosby's ability to turn it back around and be successful, again. If I were Ted, I would get Ryan Longwell on speed dial, and see how he could add him to our roster - just in case Crosby can't shake it. Longwell for FGs. Crosby for KOs.

Stats on kickers who have successfully worked their way out of serious slumps are very rare - nonexistent. If Crosby can in fact do it, he should get a lot of credit. This is no small thing.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said following Week 11 he has no plans to release PK Mason Crosby despite his struggles. "We will continue with Mason," McCarthy said. "We will not blink as far as our commitment to him."

Longwell had two slump seasons he overcame in his career, a 22 pt(86% to 64% back to 82%) in 2000-2002 and yet another season with a 11 pt drop. Morten Anderson had successive seasons of 85%+ followed by successive season of less than 72%, and back to seasons in the 80%+. What about Nick Folk, he plummets from 90% to 65%, and after three straight improving seasons, kicking at 82% this season. I disagree that it is rare or nonexistent for kickers to get out of slumps.

I think Mason can get back to his already pedestrian, but most the time tolerable, sub 80% lifetime. If Mason can recover for the remainder of the season he can get back to respectable and still maintain a pretty solid career stat line.

People talk shit about Crosby being sub 80 %. But keep in mind. Not only does he have to consistently make unusually long attempts, but he's also kicking in Lambeau.

Now I don't think Crosby's "clutch," per se. Never has been. But he's good with the onside and pooch type kicks. Plus he's got a strong leg.

I can see why they're not gonna just dump him.

All kickers go through slumps. Not to jinx him of course.
