Also, I"m not claiming that Gano is going to be some sort of all-pro kicker in the near future, and he very well may not live up to expectations. However, lets not blame him for something that's not his fault. That said, I blame D. Hall on that Rex Grossman interception. Yeah, I know he wasn't even on the field at the time, but since we are blaming people not responsible for things, I figured I'd make a go at it.
I thought about blaming Snyder first...but had to go with Doughty. Since he's the reason why the Redskins are losing...oh wait, they are not losing? You'd think they are with all the complaining.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

People don't seem to realize that Gano is being developed and his detractors seem to forget that he's kicked a handful of overtime game winners. The way I see it, Gano has distance, and is surprisingly cool in the clutch. Is he the best kicker in the league? No, but he's the best kicker we've had over the past decade easily.

3 OT winners last year.

Again all I see is subjective critiques which amounts to "I don't trust him, therefore he has to be cut" lol.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

How come no one is calling for the ousting of whoever missed that block that caused the blocked field goal? Or how about Anthony Armstrong not pulling in that pass that led to an int? Seriously, why cant anyone just be happy? Bottom line is that Gano won the game for us. Gano was clutch and that kick was effortless.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Gano and Reed are the go-to scapegoats. Every error they make is under the microscope.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Wow this thread rears it's ugly head yet again.

Well for those who have issue's with Gano... like others have said if you can locate a better kicker please notify the Skins. I think it's pretty clear that if they had a better option they would have replaced Gano by now. They don't. So lets all get over it. But since we are in the mood to fire a kicker (because people just are being hatters) then we need to fire the guy who failed to block for him this week and allowed the block field goal.

How come there is no fire the Red Zone offense thread? shouldn't they be scoring so we don't have to put it all on the kicker? Over look the obvious to blame and fire the least responsible.

I agree + he has the backing of the HC. This is Gano....

I hit 10 in a row in the preseason. Then everybody wanted to throw me under the bus after that first miss, Gano said. But I stay confident. Its just one kick at a time.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

He made the game winner and his other blocked kick was not on him. With that said I do have a hard time watching when he comes out to try a FG.

Did he say anything about giving the Cardinals starting position at the 40 yard line to begin the second half which effectively helped the Cardinals take the lead and give the Cards offense momentum? So we missed a short field goal to start the season, kicked the ball out of bounds the second game...so we are good with averaging a mistake a game? Like to see him bring it together this season, probably his last here if he doesnt. Im pulling for and want this guy to play consistently.

I would call Chauncy Stucky a scapegoat if he is blamed for the cards loss, I really wouldnt call guys who keep making mistakes scapegoats.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

So, anything less than perfection is unacceptable for Gano?

The short field he gave the Cards was a mistake, but let's point out all the other mistakes that went down in the game too if we're gonna go that route.
