also, the other houston miss was blocked, not his fault. Don't remember how long the colts kick was.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Gano has been good for the positions he has been put in. He is in the top 5 (at least he was before Sunday) for attempts of 40+ yards. When you have to kick from that far, there are a lot of factors that the kicker has no control over. The hold has to be perfect, the wind can move the ball easily over that much distance, and the spot has a huge impact.

I am not saying he is great, but in reality, there is no kicker available that is any better right now. Maybe during the offseason they bring in some competition for him, but right now, he is the best we can have.

Thank you Scott! He's had 2 dome games, the rest were outdoors. Dome kickers that get at least 8 games indoors have a serious advantage statistically.

Actually, I'm saying he could be great. If Kubiak doesn't call that time out in Houston & that 52 yarder stands, we would be 6-4 & might not even have had this thread (no offense to those that agree w/the original poster).

I am not going to say he COULD be great though. This is why, Adam V. kicked for New England for how many years? Look at some of the kicks he has made in terrible weather to win games. Now, can Gano be really good, I think he could. He needs to mature. Spend the offseason practicing the long kicks from both hash marks, in bad weather and all that. No you can't expect your kicker to make every 40+ yard FG, but a great kicker isn't going to regularly miss 30-36 yarders just because of wind, he needs to learn how to adjust better for the situation then he will be great.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

This isn't even a discussion. Gano has consistently made the field goals he's expected to make. Without the name of a specific kicker who is better than Gano and currently unemployed, the call for Gano's release is absurd and stupid. Enough of this reactionary nonsense.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

This is my thing with Gano, he seems like he can be a great kicker, just needs some work a bit. I'd hate to see him being the next Akers and we just let him go.

You prefer Swishey? Seriously? Gano has hit some huge FG's (Dallas, GB, Tenn) and his kickoffs are consistently 5 yards deeper than Suisham's were here.

Anyone who seriously prefers Shuisam over Gano just doesn't understand the game.

I talked to a Pittsburgh fan who is absolutely horrified about there kicking situation after one game with that POS.

He singlehandedly lost two gimme games for us last year, NO and the one in Dallas which is inexcusable.

Yeah I mean the guy has missed 10 FGs this year. That's pretty bad.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

If the team had playoff intentions I'd be worried. He can take blame for sucking and missing but why is our team so impotent in the redzone? We can move the ball all we want but no TD's and miss FG's isnt a good tactic to winning.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Gano is what he is. Mediocre. He's the Carlos Rogers of kickers. Good at kickoffs, shitty at scoring. We need to look at someone new this offseason...if there isn't a lockout.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Just heard that Gano just signed a long term contract w/ garunteed money but he says he wont be a bust and will be the best we've ever had so I believe him.

Re: Graham Gano has to Go !!

Where is everyone that wanted to lynch Sushiam last year and was thrill when he was cut?

What ya think, leading the NFL in missed field goals, should he go?

Really, you want to be a Sushiam apologist?
