CHICAGO Two more missed field goals from Mason Crosby in the Packers' division-clinching win over the Bears on Sunday has still not changed coach Mike McCarthy's mind about who their kicker should be for the remainder of this season.
"We're not changing our kicker, so you can write that down right now," McCarthy said. "He's our guy."
