GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Given a chance to sleep on it, Mike McCarthy is not wavering on his decision to stick with struggling kicker Mason Crosby. His job appears safe for another week.
As you know, Crosby missed two more field goals yesterday in Chicago, from 43 and 42 yards. He has now missed 12 kicks in 29 attempts and has a miss in each of his last nine games.
In a performance driven business, when other players lose roster spots and jobs for lack of production, is the coach's confidence in Crosby a tough sell with the rest of the roster?
"That is a great question for the locker room," McCarthy said. "I'm not sitting here pretending everybody is not watching how this situation is being handled, there is no question about it. The evaluation of everybody is an ongoing process. No one is happy with the number of kicks Mason has missed. But as we stand here today, as far as who is going to line up and kick, it's Mason Crosby."
It will be Crosby as the Packers host Tennessee on Sunday, December 23rd at 12:00 noon.
