Good to hear other kickers come out in his favor. Hopefully he was able to fix his issue during the week.

Even my lions fan father in law thinks Crosby will come around. Really could use him this season, though... We're not in the postseason yet, and we sure could use a kicker if/when we get there.

Watching the Raiders game today made me sick. Janakowski kicks a 55 yarder and he made it look like a chip shot. I think Crosby has the leg to be like that, but I think from all the years they messed with his kicking style might have messed him up. I never understand why they draft someone that was good in college and right away they think they have to change the way they do things. I like Crosby alot but I am thinking they need to draft someone next year and bring in the competition. You watch these young kickers and they are hitting from 50 plus alot and they make it look easy.

There are little to no facts to support your statement. You care mostly about Mason Crosby and not of the others so you have no emotional link to their misses whatsoever. Well, unless you have one on your fantasy roster, lol.

ok here is a list of young kickers and their stats from 50 plus yards

Blair Walsh 5-5
Connor Barth 4-7
Justin Tucker 4-4
Greg Zuerlein 5-8

Crosby 1-5 So I guess the whole theory of Mike McCarthy makes him take to many attempts of 50 plus yard fgs goes out the window.

I don't think there is a theory that Mason Crosby kicks too many 50+ yarders this year. Where do you get this stuff? Or better yet, how am I missing where you get this stuff?

No one is saying he's the best. But much like a QB who can rocket it 70 yards on a rope, when you have a kicker who can belt 65 yarders, you give them full opportunity to hone in their accuracy. And outside of the Colts game, he hasn't cost the Packers a win. Wait, did he miss one against the Seahawks this season?
