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.

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 highlights was probably the end of the regular season where he managed to connect on both his kicks and translate that into success in the post-season. Crosby lowlight was week 15 against the Bears where he hit rock bottom with two missed field goals out of two attempts.
