Give the kid a break.

At least he is not an overpaid crybaby not preforming. He is a rookie kicker with a beast foot, he will get better with experience.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

The kick he missed against the bears that went boink did not and would not have cost us the game and here's why

If he makes the kick,we are up 6 and a td beats us anyways by 1 pt,if the bears score a TD.

If the bears drive down the field and tie the game up 17 all..then we go into OT and THAT kick if he gets another shot in OT would decide the game.

The only kick he missed that decided the game,was the Texans miss.

Do you guys remember Suisham?
Seattle ring a bell?
Seattle again ring a bell?

HE should have been cut immediately but was not...(under old administration)

The kid doesn't even have a full 16 game season for evaluation...Lets ride this one out with the kid for now please!

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

1. He kicks in a stadium where all kickers only average 67% FGP.

2. He missed a kick in Chicago where the wind swirls and its not like he was wide left, wide right or worse...short.

3. Ever since we left RFK we have not had a so called automatic guy, funny how we did cut This_guy and he went on to become one of the better kickers in the league.

I am not going to place all the blame on Gano when most kickers suck when they play here.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

It was all part of Gano's motivational techniques. He knew that if we were up by 6 our D would defend against a TD and would almost blow it (ie the dallas game), but if he missed and we were up by only three the D would play lights out and shut them down.

All hail Graham Gano, master of motivitational misses!!!

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

He is still better than the worst redskins kicker of all time, John Hall. John Hall was absolutley worse than Suishit or anybody else we ever had.

Watching games in 2006, when you'd have a 30 yard attempt, you'd automatically know that Hall would blow it. He was that bad.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Hall had leg issues at the end that derailed him. I would take a healthy Hall over Suisham any day.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Yeah, Hall was one of the better kickers in the league when we got him from the Jets. Also, a beast of a tackler.

Like Matty said...his leg fell off when he wore our colors...and it was ugly to watch.

I'm late to this party but could it be the Center as well? Under the Red Snapper it seemed like all the balls were sent to the holder perfectly. This year I've seen more balls that look like they are skidding along the ground or sent a little high forcing the holder to get the ball down slightly late which throws off the kicker.

I only remembered hall from that horrible 06 season.

Looking him up, he was signed to a 5 year contract in 2003. He was injured 4 times in 2004, once in 2005, and twice in 2006 and put on injured reserve, ending his career.

Sunberg is definitely causing confusion and delay.

I was referring to the season as a whole. Not Hall specifically.
