Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

I was screaming for Gano's head last yr.Now I have mixed feelings about it since they stuck with him.Part of me wants him here since he's young and maybe he's worked thru his prioblems,the other part of me is glad we have a veteran whos been pretty damn consistant.If we would have cut Gano last yr when he was stinking I would be very happy with the Rackers signing
Preseason wont mean shit,Gano beat out Graham last yr,needs to do a better job in reg season

For real. How many years of seeing Rabach getting blown up in the o-line did we have to go through before he was replaced? It was ridiculous.

Re: Redskins sign kicker Neil Rackers

Is Mike Shanahan looking for a better field goal kicker? Or is he trying to push Gano to be better than he has been the last couple of years? Gano has only made 73.8 percent of his FGs during his three year career. He connected on 75% of field goals last year but he left much to be desired. Mike Shanahan has expressed confidence in Gano before. Maybe the head coach has reached a point where he wants to know just how good Gano can be. Either Neil Rackers will beat Gano out for the kicker job, or Gano will rise to the occasion and show people what he's truly made of.

Well Rabach was tenured. They only released him after learning that he liked to eat puppies.

true . . . last year when they brought in Graham, that was the same thing . . . Graham caused Gano to up his game a bit, but Graham was much worse than what anyone expected and therefore didn't really push Gano much . . . Rackers should for sure . . .

Waste of a signing since I'll be at draft day celebrations kicking 45 yd FG's with accurate precision. Tryout for the team take 3.
