NFL: Packers coach still confident in kicker despite woes
McCarthy sticking with Crosby
GREEN BAY, Wis. – There wasn’t a hitch of hesitation. Mason Crosby didn’t wait idly on the sideline for last-second clearance. A first-half shank behind him, the Green Bay Packers kicker ran onto the field for this fourth-and-1 field goal attempt Sunday at Soldier Field.
Crosby took his usual steps. Swung again. And this time, he hit the left upright. It was Crosby’s 12th miss – and 12th cold stare of disbelief. In Green Bay’s 21-13 win over the Bears, the skid lived.
Yet as fast as Crosby hurried onto the field for that second kick, Mike McCarthy hurried to his defense. Once Sunday, then again Monday.
