re: Better kickers available?

Gano went 13/16 in the UFL with a long of 53

Suisham is 18/21 long of 48

both are have made 20 xp's .. gano out of 20 attempts, suisham out of 21 (I think that the one was blocked)

Gano also has punted twice this year avg'ing 42.5/punt

Yea but he also made a 33 yard field goal to win UFL's Championship game in overtime. So he can come through in the clutch.

You are the one who originally mentioned Gano. Good job. I wanted us to give him a look even before he went UFL. I hope he's getting his kicks on a higher trajectory and he can replace Swishy.

Yeah I wasn't saying he's no good

I could always say he lost out to the b'more kicker who got cut (hauschka or something like that) if that were the case

we'll see

Re: Better kickers available?

Obviously people think that those of us who want to cut Suish are just having a shock reaction to him missing a 23 yarder. But we've had him for 3 seasons now and he keeps proving time and time again that he can't make it when it matters. Remember the shank he had in our playoff game against Seattle? Remember all the other shanks he's had with some amount of pressure on him? Remember the Dallas game two weeks ago? This wasn't a one time occurence, I knew if anybody could miss a 23 yard field goal with the game on the line that it would be Suish, and he proved me right. I don't care if we keep him for the rest of the season but he needs to be cut after the season is over.

Our D is ranked high but they also let us down when it counts.

Re: Better kickers available?

I will never know why they kept Suisham instead of trying to go out and get a kicker with "The Leg"....i think we need a guy who, like other kickers in the NFL, can come in and make a 50 yarder when needed....

Re: Better kickers available?

It absolutely hilarious we are bringing in kickers. Szab this morning said it best driving into work, very typical knee jerk reaction by the FO and most likely initiated by the owner. As die hard fans we call for the kickers head after a couple bad games and look to him to put this Saints loss squarely on him...when we had Landry give up 14 pts, Moore lose a fumble that went the other way, and a coach/bingo caller who is 3-8 this season run it 3 straight time in the 10 yard line when JC is playing his best game of the season and could put the game away...but Snyder who people state shouldnt listen to the fans is acting exactly like a fan and is going to cut a kicker (who sux dont get me wrong) but is our best option at this point in the season.....its really hilarious, still doesnt beat the knee jerk 2nd round pick for Taylor

Re: Better kickers available?

I can't call bringing in kickers "kneejerk" when guys like Dungy have gone on record saying the would have cut Suisham right after the game.

I don't think Suisham will get cut, this is a wake up call more than anything. We've done this to him before and he's responded.

Re: Better kickers available?

I said yes even though I can't blame two losses on him. Suish was a bandage for us a few years ago. He's not the greates kicker out there and most likely won't be. He's servicable. I, like everyone else, would love to have a great kicker here who can kick 50 plus yarders with no problem. Speaking of, I thought I saw a 50 plus kick last weekend from one of the college kids? was it the kid from Alabama? Playing Pitt? Anyway.

What's the deal with him...I remember a few years ago he was supposed to be a good kicker coming out of college (OSU I believe).
