Playoffs!

This was quite a vote of confidence considering Gano has missed on 26% of his FG attempts since joining the Redskins in 2009, which includes a league-high 10 misses in 2011. But a funny thing happened on Gano's way through the uprights: the Baltimore Ravens released K Billy Cundiff Sunday in favor of undrafted free agent Justin Tucker.

This paved the way for an extreme turn of events. Gano's thrill of victory over Rackers was snatched away by the agony of being [url="http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ap-source-redskins-release-kicker-142705901--nfl.html"]released Tuesday[/url], after the Redskins signed the recently terminated Cundiff.

To recap: Graham Gano beat out the man who kicked a record 40 NFL field goals in 2005 without attempting a single FG in the preseason, then got released in favor of a veteran kicker who was replaced by an undrafted free agent K out of Texas

I remember people saying how bad he was when I suggested we sign him, I guess we will find out.

At least Gano is proven. Medlock was a straight scrub.

Don't agree with it.. blaming a kicker for ineptitude on the other 2 main phases of the game is bogus.

wow goes 5-5, misses 2 FGs and he's cut. The other 3rd missed one was blocked. Rivera definately looking for a scapegoat.

3 straight misses in games and we don't know what he's done In practice or in the locker room for that matter.

None of this really matters at all anyway. Medlock is not an NFL kicker, and I'll be surprised if Gano is here this time next year. New coach and GM will bring in or draft a serviceable kicker.
