You field a kickoff with 10 seconds left in the half and return it to the opponents 43 yard line with 2 seconds left. You bring on your field goal team to try a 60 yarder. I guess I just don't see the desperation in that if you have a guy that can kick it that far. It seems far less desperate than a heave into the endzone.


Not only is a 60 yard field goal attempt an act of desperation because your defense gave up a score in the waning seconds, it's a low percentage play that messes with the kickers head.
I believe Crosby is a victim of senselessly long field goal attempts.

I don't know about that if your Kicker can make them routinely. Then, FGs from 60-65 yds become another weapon in your arsenal vs. a punt. The problem with Crosby was that he was not able to make those with any regularity. Seems Zach Ramirez can, from what I am hearing.

Maybe he can make them "routinely" on a practice field with little to no rush.
Put him in a real NFL game and the pressure becomes immense, then lets see if he can do it "routinely."
I doubt it and I'll never believe 60-65 yard field goal attempts should be part of a teams arsenal.

And the second round of kicking in practice kept Crosby perfect including from 64.

Wow. Shocking. I mean, my bud was there watching Ramirez crushing them out on Sunday. This is not looking good for him. Crosby looks to be answering.

agreed.

It is not as if many of the NFL kickers can't get the ball there from 55-60 yards. the longer the kick the lower the trajectory has to be in order to get the ball that far. That means a greater likelihood of the kick being blocked.

There is a reason Ramirez was not with any team when GB picked him up. Like every single player he has is own set of issues.

Yeah. Wow.

If Crosby keeps his job that will be because he won it back, and I will have no problem supporting him. I really didn't think that would be possible, but all of that is erased after today. Looks like we will have to wait on this till after Thursday.

Maybe during the season GB should bring in random kickers looking for work to put pressure on Crosby each week. He seems to respond to it.

Well, he did today, in practice. Crosby seems to have really responded all week with the FGs.
