What You Can Learn About Momentum From Packers’ Kicker Mason Crosby
When you’re a kicker in the NFL, the job description is pretty straightforward: put the ball between the uprights on field goals and extra points and limit your opponent’s field position on kickoffs.
The simplistic job description for kickers makes them an easy target for sarcasm and derision; after all, while everyone else is sweating through the first half, the kicker is sipping Gatorade on the sidelines, just waiting for his number to be called.
Pretty sweet gig, right?
Except being a kicker in the NFL is NOT easy, a lesson we relearned on Sunday when Mason Crosby, the dynamite kicker for the Green Bay Packers, did something he’s never done before.
He missed four fields and a PAT.
In one game.
