Re: Hunter Axed

Smith's punting wasn't anything special

While Gano has stuggled as of late, I'd rather give him a chance to prosper as a Redskin than let him get away ala David Akers. He's still young and seeing how he bounces back over the next 3 games will go a long way in projecting his future.

Mark Moseley, 1982 NFL MVP, is regarded as one of the best kickers in Redskins history. His career FG percentage? 65.6%. Chip Lohmiller, kicker during the back half of the Gibbs I era has a 71.8% career FG percentage. And while the kicking game has evolved over the last 30 years, the Redskins have gone through their fair share of mishaps and shoddy kickers (Ola Kimrin, Jose Cortez, James Tuthill). The Redskins kicker with the best career FG percentage? Shaun Suisham.

All I'm saying is give the young kid a chance. Gano has a booming leg and will get better and tougher with experience.

Re: Hunter Axed

Bring back the Red Snapper....I cant remember one bad snap by the guy...Sundberg has had at least a dozen...in one year....cut the right guy for heaven's sake.

I would have guessed the most likely to be cut this week would have been...in this order
1. Gano
2. Sundberg
3. (a far third) Hunter Smith

c'mon....Gano missed 2 chip shots worth 6 points and the ability to continue the run game and a very likely win...Smith mishandles a hot wet snap from Sundberg...who continues to suck....ask yourself this question....have you ever even noticed the long snapper?....why is it that this guy gets so much publicity? cause he sucks!
I didn't think hunter was great or anything....but he was mostly consistant. The reality is the Skins missed an opportunity to upgrade the kicking game in the offseason and they completely negelected it...including ditching the best long snapper the skins ever had....in favor of possibly the worst in recent memory.
I actually think Rabach could do better and save a roster spot.

I'd rather have a consistant inside the 40 kicker than a deep kicker that is irratic....of course, that depends on how much you trust your kickoff coverage unit. Some teams have a kickoff guy and a kicker...we just need another roster spot...axe sundberg and you solve that problem.
I was envious of TB's kicker....no misses inside the 40 all year..unreal

I didn't like Gano's performance this week...but due to the fact that we suck....let's let the guy finish out the year to see how he deals with slumps...perhaps, he comes back and suprises us....but changing the holder on him is just gunna mess him up...The FO knows that...they must....that is going to be a huge challange for Gano and Sundberg....we shall see.

I really think the FO is setting up the kicking team to fail so they can clean house this offseason.

Re: Hunter Axed

Hunter the Punter
Shanahan released thy foot
after your hands missed.

the Hunter got axed
though Sundberg, he still does snaps?
Gano, go or stay?

I don't call missing a 20 something yard kick a slump I'd call it totally inexcusable and fire the guy.

Re: Hunter Axed

Getting rid of Hunter is a complete fail, like cutting Sushiam last season. Solves Zero and sends a crappy message. Snaps have been an issue since preseason and Gano kicking field goals been an issue all year.

I gotta agree. This seems like a move for the sake of making a move.

Its like a golfer firing his caddy because he keeps shanking his tee shot in the woods.
