Graham Gano has to Go !!
 
Graham Gano has to be replaced --

The guy is 13 for 17 and among the worst in the league in terms of accuracy. He missed one from 37 yards out today that we could have really used. He missed a kick that could have won the game against Green Bay and he missed 2 in the game against Houston, one of which would have won the game in OT.

In my opinion, we need to look at picking up a kicker and releasing this guy because he is the opposite of clutch and I don't trust him with the game on the line.

edit: in the offseason -- I would agree that there aren't a whole lot of options to choose from

He is still better than Shitsam

Word.

However, I think we should consider whether the holder is screwing things up as well.

It is an issue that needs to be addressed.

It seems like from the mid 30's back he just aint gonna hit it.

Would you rather have Suisham? On that kick that hit the goalpost, I mean I can forgive him for that. That was extremely close, I mean one more foot to the right or 1 foot higher and it's good. It hit it at the highest point possible, and besides winds are a huge factor in that. He hit one earlier from further out and the wind was a factor in that one too.

That's like saying something smells better than s***. Not many professional kickers are going to be worse that Suisham.

Who would be out there to replace him?

He seems ok at times, and just off at times. I just don't know who you would have to replace him.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!
 
I second this, he sucks. We need to draft the best bad ass college kicker in the 5or 6th round this draft, and make him a redskin staple. Given our history for kickers (counting EVERY kicker all the way back after Lohmiller) the odds do not look especially good for us. It definietly is an area that needs addressing though......

Shayne Graham was available, but I don't know how much of an upgrade he would be. However, given how close these games have been, it doesn't help having a guy that can't make a FG from beyond 40 yds. That being said, I think our long snapper sucks too.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!
 
Guys..need to remember
He's still basically a rookie..
He did play at the end of last season as an official rookie,but I like him.

Yes,he's missed his share of kicks,but he's also hit some big ones too.
I actually think he's opposite of Squeezim'...

He misses the kicks that are not killers...and makes the clutch kicks...

Like today...he made the clutch 45 yarder to go up 17-14,but missed his 2nd try after a doink...but really,he was not a killer because if they kick a fg...we are in OT

If they score a TD..we lose anyway by 1

Remember...he made the big kick against the Texcans from 52...then was iced..that's no gimme

He makes the big kick against greenbay to win

No way would i dump a young kicker GUYS!! NO way!

We had a kicker on this squad a few years a go that missed his share of kicks as well..

By the name of David Akers..

No way do I give up on this young kid!
Were 4-3...enjoy it
go smoke a bowl or something

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!
 
as much as i hated suisham wasn't he the best kicker in the league going into his epic collapse? i thought he was like 15-15, then went 2-6 on his rampage of suck, missing all clutch or game-winning kicks. no excuse and i'm glad he's gone, but i wouldn't say the guy was a fluke professional.

Yeah im with you. I mean he isnt clutch or anything but at this point he seems better then anyone else out there. Plus hes the only one that has been able to send kick offs to the endzone consistently since Hall, witch to me is pretty important.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!
 
Gano is young and has had different holders. In no way do I think he could be a Pro Bowl kicker, but cutting him now would be a knee jerk "fan" type of move that will not happen this season. Let's also keep in mind, he kicked the game winner against Green Bay, so let's cut him some slack.
