1) Introduction: My my, what do we do with Mason Crosby. On one hand, Crosby had one of the biggest meltdowns for a kicker of late. On the other, fans tend to forget that Crosby was a good kicker during the beginning and end of the season and his problems really only manifest themselves during the middle of the season.
Mason Walker Crosby
Born: 09/03/1984, in Lubbock, TX
Rookie Year: 2007
NFL Experience: 6 years
Career Stats and more:
3) Expectations coming into the season: Crosby had perhaps his best season in 2011 with career high 85.7% success rate on field goals; however it could be said that Crosby was often never in much pressure to perform since the Packers that year were a offensive juggernaut. In 2012, with the offensive sputtering, the team turned to Crosby more to keep the game close and at least in the middle of the year, it definitely seemed to effect him.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Crosby’s h...

Yes, it’s Packers Report Cards time again. And just like last year, we’re having to start this much sooner than we would have liked. At a time when we should be analyzing the Packers’ chances in the upcoming Super Bowl, we instead find ourselves having have to look back at last season
So as we have done every year, we are once again undertaking the exhaustive effort of evaluating...
The Green Bay Packers may address quarterback Aaron Rodgers' contract situation over the offseason even though he still has two years left on his deal.
1) Introduction: After the disasters that were Derrick Frost and Jeremy Kapinos, Tim Masthay was a godsend. While Masthay will probably never be known for his big leg, Masthay’s forte is his accuracy and his “Aussie style” punts. Much like long snapper Brett Goode and Mason Crosby, Masthay was also the recipient of a contract extension this year, a 5-year $6.005 million...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If there was any remaining doubt whether two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings is going to be back with the Packers next season, it may have been erased Monday.Jennings' 4,788 square-foot home in De Pere, Wis. -- located 10 minutes from Lambeau Field -- was put up for sale with an asking price of 525,000.The listing is currently being featured on Realtor...
Jeff Saturday has spent 14 years on the NFL and this pro bowl will be his last. The center who snapped the ball to Peyton Manning for 12 of those 14 years plays in the NFC for his final season. In the Pro Bowl Saturday switched teams and lined up with the AFC team just so he could snap the football to Peyton Manning one last time. This is something I have never seen in the pro bowl...
Despite having two years remaining on his contract, the Green Bay Packers are looking to extend the current deal with QB Aaron Rodgers. It’s quite possible that the Packers are looking at the current situation regarding Joe Flacco in Baltimore and realize if Rodgers puts up another stellar season in 2013, his future contract could eclipse New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.
According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers will likely extend quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ contract this offseason, instead of waiting until his contract is up after the 2014 season.
The reason the Packers should get a deal done now instead of waiting is because once the Ravens extend Joe Flacco’s contract, it’s going to raise Rodgers’ price, since he’s a better...
How did I end up at the Pre-Sag awards Juan…
Yes, there are Pre-SAG awards and Aaron Rodgers looks chill with Craig Robinson. Rodgers might have been knocked out of the playoffs earlier than he was expecting, but all indications are that he and the Packers offense will be a force once again in 2013. Expect Rodgers to be the first QB off the board in fantasy drafts once again...
Green Bay's Jeff Saturday, the NFC's backup center, snapped the ball to the AFC's Peyton Manning. With Saturday retiring, it was a special moment between longtime teammates. It was a highlight of the NFC's 62-35 victory over the AFC.
Veteran kicker Mason Crosby missed a career-high 12 field goals this season
I was among Mason Crosby’s biggest defenders during his first four solid but unspectacular seasons, but after watching him Tom Birney the ball all over the place in 2012, I’ve had enough. It’s time for a change.
I thought Crosby finally jumped from average to elite in 2011. The former Colorado star...
According to Fox Sports Wisconsin, there's only about a 40 percent chance running back Cedric Benson will return to the Packers next season.Fantasy Spin:Benson missed most of the season with a Lisfranc injury. There isn't a high demand for running backs in their 30s so Benson could have trouble finding work this offseason.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Any team that makes it to the Super Bowl is obviously doing several things right. Whether it's schemes, roster decisions or general philosophies and play style, it's working. And, every offseason, teams around the NFL somewhat adapt to what's working.
The Green Bay Packers were that team two years ago. After winning Super Bowl XLV, the offensive system...
Paul Imig of Fox Sports reports that Packers WR Greg Jennings put his house on the market Monday.
This is just another indication that he expects to be playing elsewhere at the start of the 2013 season. Green Bay has a number of key players to address in the next few years like Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and B.J. Raji, so it seems reasonable that they would allow Jennings to...
