Most viewers probably thought the same thing: Good try, Greg, but that is a dead man walking.
"We will continue with Mason," McCarthy said at his postgame news conference, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We will not blink as far as our commitment to him."
Crosby had the yips worse than I.K. Kim. He has missed seven of his last 13 field-goal attempts.
After pushing a 50-yard try at the end of a first half, Crosby got a gift from Lions coach Jim Schwartz, who took a timeout right before the snap and allowed the kicker a free practice shot. Crosby, however, overcompensated and ended up yanking it left.
Later, Crosby hooked a 38-yard attempt and looked like a sad puppy on the sideline. Enter Jennings and his spirited pep talk.
McCarthy is standing behind his kicker, for now. Luckily for Crosby, Aaron Rodgers is his quarterback, and the Lions have been trying to stab themselves with The Fork for three weeks. Otherwise, Crosby could have cost the Packers a victory and put the Lions in position to grab a share of the NFC North lead.
If Crosby's woes continue, McCarthy might have no choice but to make a change.
