If only McCarthy abandons Crosby as fast as he does the run.

I wouldn't say we are without options. If Crosby has just one more bad game v. TEN, I would not hesitate to bring Longwell in to kick all of our FGs, and release WR Ross. Keep Crosby for KOs. Use Longwell for FGs. We have to have some decent measure of confidence that we can make 30-50 yd FGs in the playoffs.

Hell, I wouldn't wait. I'd make that move now. Get Longwell acclimated back in GB. This game v. TEN is as important to us as any right now. We must insure we stay ahead of SEA, and at least try to get ahead of SF.

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


This seems to be a popular opinion. And a stupid one. The Bears got Olindo Mare from his couch and made 2 fgs.

If you actually think one of the FA kickers out there can't make more than 50% of their fgs, you are out of your mind.

We don't need a Pro Bowler, we need someone who can make a 40 yard fg on a consistent basis.

For the record, you cannot have Solid to Pro Bowl players at every position. I would MUCH rather have a Solid OL and a mediocre Kicker than a Solid Kicker and a mediocre OL.

$$$ is limited. I'd bet in the offseason, Ted Thompson goes for D and OL and we keep Crosby. Had our OL been even above average, we wouldn't be having this discussion. We'd be blowing out teams left and right. Our D is above average now and the ONLY thing holding us back on O is our OL.

only stupid people claim others opinions are stupid, so there.


and Crosby is fine with 40 yard field goals, its when you go 42, 43 and higher that he gets a little bit tricky lol ... and if its 50+ ... punt instead

20-29 4 of 4 - 100%
30-39 5 of 7 - 71.4%
40-49 7 of 10 - 70%
50+ 1 of 8 - 12.5%


20-49 16 of 21 - 76.2%


So, he's already above 50%, but really, I think a kicker needs to be 83% or higher on those. And missing two out of seven between 30-39 ... just feels shitty to me.


I'd like to see the Packers bring in a kicker to at least try someone else out.

Statistically the worst kicker in the league.

That was a BEAUTIFUL field goal from 51. He'd have hit from 12 beyond that. I feel good about the boy going into the playoffs.

I only left him for 1 post. [duh]
