Tomorrow is tryout Tuesday.Let's hope they bring in some bodies for a look see. Just to have some options and maybe light a fire under "Missing" Crosby ass.

Much to the dismay of many ... there is not a better Kicker available. Packers are stuck with Mason Crosby.

He is literally the worst kicker on any nfl team right now, and statistically, by an appreciable amount.

Somebody mentioned Billy Kundoff as being the only kicker with worse stats than Mason this year.

Yet when Chicago needed a kicker last week he was one of 3 or 4 guys who was invited to try out.

Obviously the opnions that count have decided Crosby is The Packers best option moving forward.

Hell if they got rid of Crosby, then who would people have to gripe about?

Now if Al Del Greco "The greatest football player ever" was available I'd be sayin' bye bye Mason!!!!

Why doesn't he spend some time with the "kicking Guru". I can't recall his name - maybe Sailor? I mean the guy earns a million plus, wouldn't it be worth thousands to protect that job? I like Crosby because he's not a complainer, keeps plugging and especially his let strength. But results are what count.


Why? Because Slocum does a lot of research and has had a career of coaching special teams:

"No. I do a lot of research," he said. "I think I can coach kickers with anybody. I do all that type of research. I have a career of coaching, coaching special teams; I don't feel a need to do that."

it is his last two kicks of 40-49 that bother me the most. 0-2 and he shows signs of lack of confidence.

What bothers me is making him attempt field goals that long with the problems he's having. Mason is a delicate snowflake right now. I'm thinking trial by fire isn't the best approach.

There have been 134 50+ attempted this year, with 81 being made in the league (60%).

I agree with what you're saying to an extent. The 55 yarders are maybe excessive and that hasn't helped his cause, but he's paid to make kicks. If you eliminate ALL of Mason's 50+ yarders, and then compare him to the rest of the league ( NOT selectively removing their 50 yarders) he's STILL tied for #28 in the league out of 31 in fg %

How can there not be better options available?
