Despite two more misses by Crosby, his 11th and 12th this year, McCarthy said the Packers will not be looking for a new kicker. "We're not changing kickers. Write that down right now," McCarthy said. "He's our guy."

It makes you wonder if this comment is like the times when he says the players are not injured very seriously and are then out for 6-8 weeks.

Our backup kicker is Aaron rodgers right arm.

Seriously we should just go for it every time unless it's a 30 yard field goal.

In that case, the second Mike says we "Might" replace him or bring in competition, he's gone.

There are some decent names on that list.

Indeed, however consider the following.

Crosby is 9 of 11 (81.8%) from less than 40 yards. He is 8 of 18 (44.4%) from farther than 40 yards. The more confidence-inspiring names on that list are older without great legs and will obviously be better than 8-18 beyond 40, however the options seem to be:

1. Keep Crosby on. Ride the horse until he's healthy or dies.
2. Bring in competition, give Crosby more to think about.
3. Release Crosby outright after tryouts.

If option #3, the FA choices seem to be
1. Old reliable veteran, probably can't kick it more than 45 reliably. Still stuck with kicker restrictions for the postseason, the stop-gap fix for this year potentially takes away a long-term kicking solution if Crosby turns himself around and with age, the old veteran likely won't be around for too long.
2. Younger kicker, more risky and in a couple cases the guy's just flat-out not good, but more long-term potential than a guy at the end of his career that can't kick it 50 yards.
3. Complete unknown. Could completely bomb, or work out well.

It's a big risk either way. Unless Crosby does really bad the last two games, I don't see any competition being brought in until potentially training camp. TBH on 4th and < 3 between our 30 and 40 I'm fine going for it most of the time unless it's close to the end of the game and it's tied/need 3 to tie. We've got a good offense and a QB that can scramble, I like our offense on 4th and 3 better than I like Crosby from 50.

Even the kicks he makes and his extra points are all wobbly and hooking all over the place. I don't think I've seen a kicker have a season with as many BAD misses as Crosby this year either. Some of his kicks are just complete shanks. That first miss he had today was one of the worst FG attempts I think I've ever seen.

McCarthy already gave him more than enough chances. At this point I don't really see him pulling through and figuring it out this year. Put the guy on IR or something.

Is it me or is Troy Aikman and Joe buck bad luck for Crosby?

Four reasons to keep Mason Crosby:

4. It'll give Joe Buck and Troy Aikman and Jimmy Johnson fits.
3. Unlike Ryan "The Dome" Longwell, he doesn't blame his holder.
2. Anyone remember the years when the Packers would have died to have a 70% field goal percentage? (Hint: The quinquennium including the Tom Birney period.0
1. Chester Marcol refuses to come out of retirement.

Kicking anything other than extra points is apparently bad luck for Mason Crosby.

uffda udfa (3h) : It's just fine.
musccy (3h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (3h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (4h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (5h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (5h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (5h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (9h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (9h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (9h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (10h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (12h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (12h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (12h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (12h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (12h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (13h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (14h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (14h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (14h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (14h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (14h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (14h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
