Graham Gano is a free agent. They should be begging for him to come back. Mike Shanahan has no one else to blame for Cundiff's inconsistencies other than himself. To hand him the kicking job so freely after Gano had won it matter-of-factly was a big time lapse in judgement. Shanahan should have known better.

Mattyk, I hear you loud and clear. Gano's biggest problem was consistency. But he made most of his FGs last season; not counting the one's that were blocked by the opposing special teams that our special teams unit failed to block. Still, this was a new year. Shanahan can cut and sign whoever he wants. But Gano never truly lost the job and Cundiff never truly won it either.

Gano is a 73% kicker for his career.

He truly lost the job, sorry.

look at the start of someone like morten andersen's career, he was worse than 73% through his first 3 seasons. he ended up having a whopper of a career.

food for thought

He lost the job but not through competition like it should have been. You point out Gano's lowly field goal percentage, but the man made a 59 yard kick last season and Cundiff couldn't make a 57 yard kick 8 days ago against the Bucs. Mike Shanahan erred in his decision to cut Gano and to sign Cundiff. Both of those choices were poor in my estimation.

Anyone heard the Skins had planned to work Gano out tomorrow but changed their mind after speaking with him?

Guess he didn't want to come back.

Edit : Just saw a rumor that he's one that the Redskins are trying out? Would be awesome.
Sold! This is not our super bowl run year so lets try and solve the kicker problem long term instead of settling for a retread. If we were a contender I would be more in favor of a guy like Brown.

So, we wanted to try him out but after speaking with him decided not to?

What would change the Skins mind during a phone call.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

For the umpteenth time,why are you guys so high on Gano? Shanny says Gano outperformed Rackers in practice but I cant find final stats. Last article I could find that listed how many they made Rackers was 28-33 and Gano was 26-33 in training camp

Coach Mike Shanahan said Gano ''won the statistical battle in practice'' and that the 25-year-old kicker gets ''undue criticism'' because the blocks last season weren't the kicker's fault.
Rackers arrived with a strong pedigree. The 36-year-old kicker has played for the Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans over 12 seasons, and his 88.2 field goal percentage over the last three years is third best in the NFL over that span. The Redskins signed him as a free agent when he couldn't reach a new deal with the Texans.
Gano, who joined the Redskins late in 2009, has a percentage of 73.8 over the same time period, second-worst in the league.
He's also 5 for 8 on game-tying and game-winning field goals in the final two minutes of a game or in overtime, with all three misses coming from 47 yards or more.
Those are the kicks that really matter - according to the advice Gano received last week when he met Mark Moseley, the only kicker ever to win league MVP. Gano sat with the former Washington kicker's family at the Redskins Welcome Home Luncheon.
