Mason Crosby: You’ve got to take joy in the moments

NFL: OCT 10 Packers at Bengals

Sunday was not a good day for kickers around the NFL and it was a particularly bad day for kickers in Cincinnati.

Bengals kicker Evan McPherson missed field goals at the end of regulation and, despite what he initially thought, in overtime. Packers kicker Mason Crosby did the same and had a third miss earlier in the game, so there was plenty of intrigue when the Packers sent him out again for another try to win the game.

Crosby made that 49-yard kick and the Packers got a 25-22 win. After the game, Crosby said he “wanted so badly to come through there” and thanked his teammates for continuing to provide him with opportunities.

“You’ve got to take joy in the moments,” Crosby said, via the team’s website. “All I can think about is that last kick right now. You see the faces of your teammates and what those guys put on the line to continue to get in that position I just want to come through for them.”

Crosby’s had a lot of good days for the Packers. Sunday wasn’t one of them, but it ended well.

  1. Crosby had a meltdown today nearly equaling the one in Detroit a few years ago. It’s a tribute to him that he shook it off. Still, a session with a good hypnotist couldn’t hurt.

  2. For aaron rodgers that moment will be when he finally gets to escape green bay as he desperately yearns

  3. I mostly wanted Cincinnati to win this one, but I’m glad Crosby had a chance to redeem himself and finish it on a high note.

    I don’t get it.

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Suddenly, with each win, my bandwagon is getting heavier. The season is still young. The wheels could fall off anytime. E-X-L-A-X.

  6. When Rodgers gets to “escape” Green Bay is what we’re pulling for in Minnesota. Then we’ll have a chance to be relevant. Yes, I’m “sayin’ there’s a chance” . . .

  7. Insanely overrated.

    Very few game winners in relation to how long he has been in the League. And I can’t think of a kicker that survived a season like he had in 2012. (63%)

    81.6% for his career has him at 25th among active kickers that qualify.

  8. Again, coach opted to go with Cosby instead of trusting me ‘The One Hit Blunder’ to win the game. I don’t like this.
