Mason Crosby survived one of the worst seasons of his

Mason Crosby survived one of the worst seasons of his
career by putting together five of his best.The veteran Green Bay Packers kicker isn't looking at what happened in 2012 Authentic Josh Jackson Jersey , when he made just 21 of 33 field-goal attempts, as a pathway to bouncing back from a nightmarish performance last week at Detroit.Crosby missed four field goals and an extra point, those 13 lost points looming large in a 31-23 loss Sunday. He had never missed more than two kicks in a game in his 12-year career."I look at what happened on Sunday as I'm lumping it into one kick, one entity," Crosby said Friday. "That was a game, that was a moment, that I couldn't have ever imagined happening, but it did happen and I can learn from it. I don't reset, I don't go looking for things. It's more, all right, get back into it. What am I going to do better this week? How am I going to improve?"So far this week, it's been good getting out at practice Youth Jamaal Williams Jersey , hitting the ball, trusting that I've done this for 12 years in the NFL and a long time before that. What went down on Sunday is unacceptable for the career I've had, but it did happen and I'm going to be better off because of it."That's what the Packers are counting on heading into Monday night's game against San Francisco.The Packers didn't bring in any veteran kickers for a workout this week. Just like in 2012, they're banking on Crosby's body of work."You talk about hitting a bump in the hit, I mean, he hit a boulder, for God's sake," coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's the same guy. He's working at it. Personally, you root for a guy like Mason because he exemplifies what a Green Bay Packer is. He'll be back to normal."Change has become the new normal for Crosby.From 2010 through 2015, Crosby had the same snapper (Brett Goode) and holder (Tim Masthay). This marks the third consecutive season with a new operation, with Green Bay drafting JK Scott in the fifth round to handle the punting and holding and Hunter Bradley in the seventh to handle the snapping.Bradley has had a few off-target snaps, but the snapper-holder combination wasn't to blame on any of Crosby's five missed kicks."I just couldn't find the line ," Crosby said. "The ball wasn't going through. I'm not going to overreact, overthink on it. The biggest disappointment for me was not doing my job in helping this team win. I need to make those kicks to help this team win. Honestly, whenever that happens, that's what I feel the most is letting my teammates down."Special teams coordinator Ron Zook likes what he has seen this week."I think he's probably a little bit more zoned-in," he said. "Mason has always been a pro since I've been around him. I'm not one bit worried about him."NOTES: QB Aaron Rodgers was a full participant in practice after aggravating his injured left knee when tackled by Lions LB Christian Jones on the opening possession. "Kind of a step back to last week, the beginning of the week," Rodgers said. He wore a new, lighter brace in that game and hopes he'll be able to wear it again against the 49ers. ... RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) and backup Jason Spriggs (ankle) were added to the injury report as limited participation. If Bulaga plays against San Francisco, he'll line up next to RG Byron Bell, who has taken over that position for Justin McCray, who started the first three games. "Been consistent. He has a lot of experience," coach Mike McCarthy said.The APC Podcast: Aaron Rodgers readies for 2018 preseason debut As the NFL preseason plods along Randall Cobb Jersey , so doth the podcast.
