Mason Crosby preparing for strong finish

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 10, 2013 – 2:33 pm

The Packers didn’t bring any other kickers in to compete with Mason Crosby when he was slumping. The 49ers did, with incumbent David Akers and newcomer Billy Cundiff staging a weeklong competition to see who will kick on Saturday night.

Crosby reiterated again on Thursday that he was plenty motivated by his own struggles, whether or not the Packers brought in some competition for his job. But he does appreciate the support the organization showed him, and after making five consecutive field goals over the last three games, his focus is on continuing the strong finish to an otherwise rough season.

“For me, it’s about finishing everything,” Crosby said. “I finished the regular season strong, and now it’s finishing these playoffs and every opportunity I have. I’m thankful to be here.

“Consistency is the name of the game, and these last few weeks I’ve felt good with that, and it’s the playoffs now. I have to be consistent, be solid and take advantage here.”
