Let's see what this guy can do, I hope he's the solution for a few seasons.

Graham Gano has a gigantic leg. Watched him for the past few years at Florida State. He can kill the ball. We shall see.

Feel bad for Suisham but you can't miss 23 yarders if you plan on kicking in the NFL.

Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

I dont feel bad. Suisham has had more opportunities here than most kickers would get from one team to wrap up a job, permanently. He is a streaky kicker and that is what a team does not need. You need consistency and stability. Hopefully, Gano can also boom the kickoffs better.

Suisham got paid for that missed kick.

Oh yeah. That's the thing that stood out most to me whenever I'd watch Florida play Florida St in recent years. This dude would blast it into or out of the endzone every friggin time.

The bottom line is, we may have won the last three games in a row if Suisham makes some kicks. Many kickers in this league are on a week-to-week basis as far as job security, and apparently Suisham is one of them.

Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

I feel bad in the sense that if your going to get rid of one person who made a mistake "supposedly" costing the game then you might as well be fair and get rid of the others as well.

Other then that....Suish was a decent kicker not a great kicker. Basically he was a band aid. If this guy works out and can crush the ball good. Maybe we've solved one problem we won't need to fix for a long time. Hopefully we will be able to spend more quality time looking into OL, QB, RB, and LB.

He'll be fine until he misses, when he does he'll get the bus too. Feel bad for Suisham, the guy was perfect for twelve weeks straight, but in this league you're paid to make um.

Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

I'd rather this guy be trying out right now since we're so far out of the playoffs it isn't funny...

A3-9 football team releasing it's kicker with four games remaining in the season may be a first. I don't know that I remember anything like that happening before. Could have, I just don't remember.

Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

I like the move, again, it gives us real game film to evaluate him. Suisham had definitely enough opportunities. My concern would be how the decision was made {see other thread}
