Sorry Medlock, but Rivera was keeping you around despite your lack of talent and was hoping he would never have to use you and simply hoped that nobody would notice. There's a reason Medlock has a lack of FG attempts. There's many opportunities where we could have played for a FG, but instead threw deep passes and worthless read options 3 plays in a row trying to get a touchdown and just punted instead. Just another reason to get rid of Rivera as soon as possible.

It really is f'ed up... No one is saying that Medlock was going to be a hall of famer, but he wasn't really given a chance. He's only attempted a total of what, 8 FGs this season? That is a joke. We barely even get into FG range with any regularity, and you cut a guy who barely got a chance to do his job because we suck at everything else? LOL.

I guess he made that fake punt call too, right?

Don't get me wrong, I actually pointed to Graham Gano as a reason to pull for Medlock... You can pick up a FA kicker who ends up being a guy you can count on for years... Medlock just didn't get a fair shake and K is among the least of our problems IMO. I also have to wonder who made this decision considering there is no official GM in place. I think it's ridiculous to let Rivera make decisions when he isn't going to be here next year anyway.

How about waving Jimmy Clausen. That asshole doesn't even dress. What a waste of a roster spot.

Because you would need to replace him with another QB who would never see the field as opposed to the guy making every kick. The difference really isn't very difficult to understand is it?

He really wasn't that great. Better than Mare, but not by much.

There was a reason why we didn't put him out there in certain situations. Many complained when we decided to punt rather than kicking long field goals. He just wasn't consistent enough to be trusted. That was evident when we actually needed him to make a one.

Justin was 7-10, not bad certainly not bad enough to place blame on him.

Gano on the other hand "He has connected on 59-of-80 field goals and 59-of-61 extra points as a pro, but his numbers are much better when blocked kicks are taken out of the equation. In Washington, he had six field goals and two PATs blocked. Minus those, he ranked second in franchise history with a 79.8-percent conversion rate on field goals and was perfect on PATs."

Gano is a better kicker, its an upgrade.

It sucks to wake up and realize that your team is literally in the same class as the Browns and Lions.
