NFL fans change Anders Carlson WIKI page bio after Packers kicker chokes under pressure against 49ers: “He’s getting cut”

The Packers desired a smooth transition after releasing Aaron Rodgers. While Rodgers struggled with injuries at his new club, the Jets, the Packers had high hopes for Jordan Love, their new QB. The Packers pushed tirelessly to establish Love as their franchise quarterback, and he showed a promising performance to keep up their trust.

Love’s performance paved the way for the Packers’ postseason, earning him accolades from A-Rod himself. However, the team’s postseason journey came to an end following a disappointing defeat against the San Francisco 49ers. One of the major reasons behind the loss was their kicker Anders Carlson’s costly mistake, and fans didn’t mince words while slamming him.

Anders Carlson misses crucial kick against 49ers

Anders Carlson faced a crucial moment that could have altered the course of the game. With 6:21 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Packers had an opportunity to take a 24-17 lead, but his 41-yard field goal attempt veered wide left, leaving fans and teammates in disbelief.

What made the kicker’s miss even more glaring was the sideline report from Fox’s Rinaldi, who revealed a sobering statistic about the rookie. No other kicker in the NFL had missed more field goals than Carlson, making his struggles apparent on a national stage. Packers coach Matt LaFleur’s open admission during the interview didn’t help the situation.

“When we talked to the head coach, Matt LaFleur, about this, he basically said, ‘When he goes out there, I just pray,’” Rinaldi said via SFGate.

The missed kick proved costly for the Packers, as the 49ers seized the opportunity to seal a game-winning drive. Christian McCaffrey, the 49ers’ MVP frontrunner, paved the way for the win with a 6-yard touchdown run.

Drafted in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Anders Carlson’s performance in the regular season revealed a tale of inconsistency. While boasting a perfect record on kicks up to 39 yards, he struggled significantly from longer distances, going 7-for-13 from 40 yards and beyond.

Fans mock Anders Carlson

The Packers made a change to their kicker two years ago. They decided to let go of the 39-year-old Mason Crosby, who had an impressive record of 24-of-25 from field goals within 50 yards. The team selected Anders Carlson to help support Jordan Love’s young team.

However, the kicker failed to live up to expectations, and his mistake cost the Packers their crucial match. Following the loss, fans rallied on social media to throw digs at him.

Some fans even went to the rookie’s WIKI page and edited a portion of the page with a rant.

“He was deported to Sweden after choking for the #Packers in the NFC Divisional game in 2024”

The Packers had control in the match against the 49ers for most of Saturday night’s matchup. But Anders Carlson’s costly mistake led them to outgain 356-330, while the 49ers converted 10-of-16 on third down. Many sports enthusiasts even claimed to sack the kicker for his underwhelming performance.

A fan wrote, “He’s getting cut.”

What’s your take on this? Do you think that Carlson’s mistake was the only force behind the Packers’ playoff loss?
