haha...exactly. Shanny would be the wanker here. Firing Gano would make him and some fans happy but it's pointless. We have 9 months until our next meaningful kick. Lets just wait and address the kicker situation along with everything else in the offseason.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Just as frustrated with Gano as everyone else, but his directional kickoffs are a huge benefit to the team, and if he can get just a bit better at FG's we should keep him on.

Dude is horrible. If you can't count on him to make a FG under 40 yds, what good is he?

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

OK, I defended him before...no more.

Time to go Gano, take Sunberg with you.



Shanny, get Jason Elam on the phone. Bruce, get Martin Gramatica on yours. Let the geezers battle it out.

ANYBODY GET ALBRIGHT ON THE PHONE!!!!

so every other available kicker makes every kick under 40? Were his kicks yesterday awful, yes. Are his kickoffs important to our special teams, yes. Can we bring competition in this off-season Absolutely.

It would've been nice, especially with the Bucs beating us on a 2 point conversion (when Mike Alstott didn't get in) about 5 years ago, and it def. would've felt like a little payback, but it didn't happen. The only way this game would've felt worse was if it was week 17 and a "win and we're in, or lose and we're out" situation.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Gano has the most missed field goals in the NFL...I don't know how it can get worse than that. Throw him in the pit of fire!

They may not, but the make a higher PERCENTAGE of kicks than Gano. BTW, some of them do indeed hit all of their kicks from within forty. Not only that, the dude was cutting it close to missing on damn extra points.

Well, we could NOT be the best kickoff team in the NFL.

That would qualify as worse.

The biggest problem is you don't get to kick off and bury a team deep if you keep missing FGs. We're giving about half that value back in missed field goals vs. the opportunities we've had.

Well, I think the list of players who suck and must go could get upwards of 15 or 20 if we're being honest with ourselves. And I'm not sure Gano would be on it.

I think Hunter Smith would definitely be released for performance reasons before Gano would. I'd imagine Gano could probably punt better than him, at least.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

I see that they're tying out good ole Nick Novack among others. Guy has to be the most line drive oriented kicker in the history of football, even on extra points. Everytime he kicked for it I was scared that someone was going to jump up and knock it down. Never knew why I didn't notice it until he played for the Skins.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!


There was a special some time ago I think 60 minutes and it should the ups and downs of the life of a kicker through the eyes of their family.

It is a pretty nerve raking job to say the least.
