McCarthy on his press conference just said that when releasing him that he's still in the competition and that they know what they have with him. Basically, they didn't wanna go into 4th game with three kickers.

I think the new kid wins it. He can drill it and he's more accurate than Crosby and less expensive.

Ramirez's arrival at camp is another nail in Crosby's coffin. I'm all for moving on without Crosby on our roster.

Just don't see how Crosby doesn't get the job...

The guy made all his Kicks in the preseason. 3 for 3? 4 for 4? .. I mean Tavecchio missed one from a reasonable distance.

What is the curve when grading these guys? Does practice matter? Does games matter? If you put it all together Crosby has had the best preseason except family night.

I mean I guess you could get Ramirez cheaper sure. But why take the chance on that guy who hasn't been with us for a matter of a week?

Idk this process is just really confusing right now.

I think Mike McCarthy is just keeping this in his back pocket, saying: "Don't make me bring Sergio back here!"

Tavechio clearly out kicked Crosby.

They were even all the time, except occasionally Crosby would miss 3 in a row in practice.

Then in one game Tavecchio misses ONE, and Crosby makes one. Suddenly all the headlines read CROSBY MOVES AHEAD IN KICKING COMPETITION.

Tavecchio never had a chance. For whatever reason, they just didn't want him.

Mason Crosby's kicking woes return


If Crosby were doing well, they wouldn't have two other kickers competing for the position.

I believe the lefty component entered into the equation with Sergio.

Also, watch Georgio on kickoffs...

Something was awkward with him. He seemed to lose his balance every time.

Giorgio Tavecchio, converted 86.4 percent of his field goals throughout the course of this summer, which is better than the 80.0 percent Crosby has posted.

And yet they release him, stating he's "still in the competition." Right?

I guess they got enough film on him. I wonder when they'll have enough film on Crosby.

Sure in practice maybe. But Crosby made all his in the games. Tavecchio only made 1 in game. That's why i'm skeptical on anyone else getting the job. Like you said Tavecchio never had a chance cause he made most of his kicks IN PRACTICE.

I understand all the Kicking competition, but only 1 was made by anyone other than Crosby during the Preseason. Crosby made 3. We barely kicked any fieldgoals. Crosby wins by default.

Imo that is pretty insignificant.

100% about SALARY CAP. They'd owe Crosby dead money.

so given what the Italian sounding name guy did and mason did recently - whats the new guy got to do in the next week to get a job? ... make everything?

how many FGs we really going to get in the next game? - 3 tops? so if he misses one he is done? ...

I mean I like the sound of the new guy but seriously we going to keep him if he is any good then? or just putting him there to keep Crosby honest for the next week?
