Two weeks missing fairly routine FGs. Obviously not a concern for a game like today but a huuuge concern for a close game with the winning score less than a TD. I haven't heard that he has any injuries. Maybe the placeholder and him are not entirely on the same page.

So are Crosby's misses an aberration or something to be concerned about?

Maybe all those long attempts fucked with his head.

not really. It's not like the last time that he was struggling. Then his kicks were starting off bad and just got worse. Now his kicks are on target and hard enough. But then they knuckle, and no telling where it goes. Knuckle balls are usually caused by hitting the ball square, or hard. If he can get a little less of the ball, it shouldn't knuckle like it has been.

Worried about crosby?

no.

I'm worried Ted might get a papercut when he signs Nate Kaeding.

Fix it Mason!

I'm a little worried about his mental state. He seems to normally miss an important kicks with tons of pressure on him... but just seems like his confidence has taken a hit. I think Mike McCarthy use be trying to get him used to the pressure.

Make him do FG kicks... and the whole team (or at least those under 285) have to go gasser right after every miss. That would put some pressure on him... and maybe make the linemen do them too... but maybe shorter distance...

Also make the TE and WR groups do gasser for their drops... they've gotten out of hand (literally)

Kicking the football isn't as easy as you think. Everyone misses from time to time. I'll only begin to worrie if he misses a FG that would give us the lead or tie it late in the game.

Maybe it's time to bring a kicking expert and a sports psychologist in to work with him.

I think he could have tied the Colts game and missed it badly.

GoPack1984 (34m) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (35m) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (38m) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (38m) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (43m) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (53m) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha

uffda udfa (1h) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (1h) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (1h) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (1h) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (1h) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (1h) : & management
shield4life (1h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (1h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (1h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (1h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (1h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"

uffda udfa (3h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
