"We're not changing our kicker, so you can write that down right now," McCarthy said Sunday, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "He's our guy. He needs to make those kicks. He knows that. We're at that time of year."
"I can't sit and sulk, think about missed kicks, because I have to make kicks and we're going to get to the playoffs and there's going to be some big ones down the line here," Crosby said.
The Packers clinched the NFC North on Sunday, but in the playoffs, against good defenses, they won't have the luxury to pass on points. Crosby will have to turn it around and get back to being the kicker he has been in previous seasons (he's at 76.3 percent for his NFL career), or his coach's loyalty ultimately could cost the team.
