Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

This will be a very stiff challenge for Graham Gano. While he hasn't reached elite status yet, Gano actually has a great chance of winning the competition over Rackers in preseason.

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

Neil Rackers used to be great at kicking off. Now he's old. So I would bet the plan is to keep both kickers, and then use Gano on kickoffs.

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

Rackers = a season of pulled groins and hammys ala John Hall

Stick with the young stud who drills 59-yarders... stick with

GANO

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

Why would rackers leave Houston because they wouldn't offer him a multiyear contract but come here to "compete" with gano?

Doesn't make sense to me

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

Maybe Rackers can overcome the challenge of kicking a FG when there's a 6'8" defensive lineman coming at you untouched by your blockers.

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

I must be one of the few who doesn't like this move. Gano is young and improving, has a stronger leg. Are they going to cut him? We'll see how long before people here call for Rackers neck.

I agree with this. I would much rather have Gano. Even if he is going to miss some that he should make. He gives us the chance to make some that he shouldn't.

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

I'd hate to see us prematurely cut Gano. I could easily see him pulling a Suisham and going somewhere else and being near perfect. He has a lot of potential and is still young. I say keep him.
