The Crosby Show

Here's a story that I apparently missed during my hibernation: McCarthy is not going to bring in competition to Mason Crosby.

I just don't understand this (non)move. The only explanation that I can come up with is that McCarthy is trying to rebuild Crosby's confidence. But if Crosby can't handle the pressure of another kicker in camp, how is he possibly going to handle the pressure of kicking a 52-yard field goal with time expiring?

I'd love to be proven wrong here, but I would predict at least one loss due to field goal kicking. And if I am right, this is completely inexcusable. In the NFL, one game is the difference between hosting a playoff game and traveling on wildcard weekend.
