Head coach Mike McCarthy is sticking with his struggling kicker.
Attention, folks wanting to cut @crosbykicks2. McCarthy: "We will continue with Mason. We will not blink as far as our commitment to him."— Jason Wilde (@jasonjwilde) November 18, 2012
Crosby missed field goals from 50 and 38 yards against the Lions today but lucky for him, it didn't cost the Packers the game as they went on to win 24-20 in Detroit. Crosby did hit a 39-yard field goal with under a minute to go to extend the Packers' lead to the winning four point margin.
The sixth year kicker out of Colorado has struggled mightily this season. He's hit on just 10 of 15 field goals this year with a long of 54 yards against Chicago in mid-September. Crosby was perfect to start the season but has hit just half of his field goals since then including missing both attempts against the Indianapolis Colts in a three point loss. He's missed at least one field goal in the Packers last four games.
