- 2012 Preseason he's 5-5 including 2 from 40-49 and 2 from 50+. Connor Barth's won the job over him.

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.

Maybe Gano pulled a Cundiff...you want to sign me, sign me. I'm not working out

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.

I'm not high on Gano at all. I cringe every time we have to kick a fg and I'm even holding my breath on pat's.

I think it's pretty evident that Gano's only true believer at Redskins Park is Danny Smith, and maybe Gano doesn't want to subject himself to a tryout only to walk away without a contract. Maybe he feels like if he's got to go back there it better be guaranteed he's got the job. Or else he'll just wait

are they doing things during tryouts that we don't hear about? what doesn't he want to subject himself to? kicking some balls? i don't really see the benefit there

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Why is Cundiff still on the team?

Cut him now. If somehow you can't get a kicker this week, have Lorenzo Alexander handle kickoffs. And if it's 4th down and we don't want to punt, go for it with Alfred Morris or a long pass.

And another kicker that couldn't beat out Gano lighting it up for texans
Graham stunk it up for us last yr
Has there ever been a kicker that left the skins and didn't get a job somewhere else?
Gano doesn't count

Chris Russell and rich tandler have both been on espn980 and essentially said shanahan got rid of gano because he was openly religious and it put a lot of players off.

I agree with this. While its turned out horribly. I still think it was the right move at the time. Hard to predict that miss in the playoffs would give cub diff the yips.
