And he's a Kraut, too.  Poor Goalline.

Kickoffs we’re weak, but I’m wondering how much of the FG had to do with the LS and/or holder. Crosby looked to be heading to Vinitiari territory being old but reliable and then hit a wall with Opie and then Bojo holding. Have to think that’s a big part of why they let Bojo go, beyond just his inconsistency.

Kickers, by and large, are susceptible to jammed eyelids and other mental maladies, and can get into a funk PDQ. Crosby went through such a period just a couple or so years back, as I recall.

Last year, he didn't stand much of a chance. Poor snaps and holds are bad enough, but piling on consistent protection breakdowns is more than enough to give anybody the yips.
However, I don't think Crosby had one, and his mechanics were good, so I think if those issues are solved, he will be fine.

He was much younger back then. Now is the time to look into replacing him.
