Loser: Anders Carlson

Consider Anders Carlson under pressure. The Packers' rookie has the unenvious task of replacing one of the most consistent kickers in franchise history.

And it hasn't started as he would've hoped. Carlson hadn't made too many mistakes in the opening few days, but converted just one of six kicks on Saturday.

Carlson has time to correct things, but his slow start to training camp is somewhat concerning. The pressure will only increase once the Packers play games in the preseason, and to another level when real football kicks off in less than six weeks.

It's probably a little early for the Packers to consider other options at kicker. They are going to stick with Carlson.

Bad days at practice can happen to any player, but Carlson now needs to bounce back. Consistency was a concern during his time at Auburn, and the Packers can't afford him to make as many mistakes in the regular season.

Hopefully, Carlson puts it right with a perfect week of practice. But the pressure is on. That's especially true with Mason Crosby waiting. The Packers' all-time leading points scorer is still a free agent. If Carlson continues to miss kicks, how long will it take for Crosby to receive a call from Brian Gutekunst?
