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.

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.
