4 of 11! Ouch!!If that's the reason for Crosby struggling as of late it's strange that he made his first nine field goals this season but is only 4-of-10 since.
Seems like he goes through these stages where something gets into his mind and he starts with the yips. I feel like he's done that throughout his career.4 of 11! Ouch!!
As much as I like Mason. He’s a couple more missed FG from being done as a Packer. It’s what have you done lately in this league.
Just to chime in. I agree that injuries can influence your special teams and this season the Packers have seen their share of them. However, that doesn't explain past seasons, when injuries were relatively light and the special teams still sucked. Also, maybe my memory is selective, but I don't recall the special teams being that special to begin this season, when the Packers were healthy.
Injuries feel more like an excuse, when in reality it seems that poor execution by multiple players, including veteran players, has created bad results for the ST units. When that occurs, coaching should be considered as part of the problem.
He's working with a new long snapper, and holder. Both were added with little time to get in sync. He only missed 2 out of his last 40 FG tries of any length over the 2 previous years, so I don't see anything that would make me believe he's lost it.
I noticed that (laces) too. The snap was decent as well. I definitely think this has gotten into his head. Is it a reason to give up on him? I don't think so. Should the Packers be concerned? A bit and it might effect their 4th down decisions as well. I think he will kick himself out of it, just a matter if time.On his FG miss yesterday, I did pause the game. Bojorquez spun the ball perfectly to get the laces out. It would be interesting to hear what Mason says about that one. Maybe the snaps/holds have been so bad that he's almost expecting to kick a ball that isn't set correctly. IDK - but the ball appears to be in Mason's court now.
Crosby is a prideful guy and not all of the missed FGs this year were his fault. But he'll take the blame anyway. He's been here a long time. This is a year where the team can make a legit run at a SB win. He may just decide to call it a day at the end of the season. Wouldn't surprise me.They protected their kicker on the PS. It is very clear theyre moving on from Crosby next season. Hes one of the more expensive kickers in the league. It only makes sense to move on. He may actually even retire.
Earthquakes shake everyone. Our special teams fiascos have shaken all of us, including Crosby. Watch his body language.I wonder how much of Crosbys issues are the result of a shaky unit around him, from weak protection on the edges to questionable holds and placements.
I didn't see the miss, heard it on the radio, but for whatever it's worth, he looked good kicking the rest of the game. all the PATs looked pretty solid at least
Where did you read that?And he's a grade A jerk. Blames everyone but himself. Publicly shows up his teammates on the field
Wow finally. Did you see him in KC? Didn't need to see it. I've watched him on the sidelines for over a decadeWhere did you read that?
On a team that has the pieces on offense and defense to make a Super Bowl run, the field-goal unit stands as the biggest pitfall to a potential title.www.packersnews.com
