Training camp look in: Crosby perfect in kick competition

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 27, 2013 – 12:02 pm

GREEN BAY–Mason Crosby would seem to be on the verge of retaining the job he’s held since 2007.

In a two-bout, high-stakes kicking competition in Tuesday’s practice at Ray Nitschke Field, Crosby converted all 14 of his field goal attempts. The distances in round one ranged from 33-58 yards and the kicks were into a light wind. In round two, the distances ranged from 35-64 yards and the kickers were downwind. Challenger Nick Ramirez was a combined six of 16, four of seven into the wind and two of nine downwind. He was afforded two extra kicks — both from 58 yards — in the downwind round, and failed to convert either one.

Tuesday’s practice, on possibly the hottest day of training camp, is the last of camp and must be followed by a roster reduction to 75 players by late this afternoon.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.

    I think Someone is trying to tell us something about Mason Crosby.

    Well don’t know what to really say I have been hard on Crosby and has been well deserved it’s great he makes these kicks in practice but question is can he do this in a game ? Crosby has been choking a lot during important games and comes up with excuses so I guess we will see ? I hate to see a season go to waste because a kicker can make kicks during practices but not during games .

    the guy is so inconsistent, one week misses one week hits. is this someone you don’t hold your breath on when he goes out to kick? time to move on…

    Yea he had been inconsistent last year, and to somewhat, the year before. But 14-14 is pretty impressive. Kicking can be as much mental as anything else. Maybe this will finally give Crosby the confidence to find his old form.

    Mason is money. Even the great Brett Farve had down years and would come back to light it up. Mason has a strong leg and one down year does not make him expendable. If the Packers let him go, they will regret it.

    They signed him to get the job done not make excuses!At some point during the draft next yr., I would definitely draft a kicker! A kickers only job is to kick the damn football through the uprights!

    re: “kickalicious”

    He couldn’t beat Akers, who wants a Lions reject anyway?
    YouTube clips impressive, but how many takes did he need to get those in the can? Especially when you see him showboating after the admittedly astonishing trick kicks. NOPE not a serious contender, thanks for playing, try again next season.
