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


So someone else is to blame for Medlock shanking FG's?

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

On December 8, 2009, he was signed by the Washington Redskins, replacing Shaun Suisham. He successfully connected on his first NFL field goal attempt, a 46 yarder against the Oakland Raiders on December 13, 2009. Gano continued to play for the Redskins in the 2010 season. He cemented his status as a clutch kicker for the Redskins by contributing to 3 overtime game-winning field goals when playing the Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Due to his inconsistency in the 2010 season, the Redskins brought Shayne Graham to compete. After a good performance in the preseason and horrible performance by Shayne Graham in the first preseason game, Gano was kept on the final roster before the start of the new season. In Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers of the 2011 season, he kicked a 59-yard field goal breaking the Redskins' franchise record of 57 yards. At the end of the season, he made 31 of 41 field goal attempts with five of the ten misses being blocked kicks.
On March 3, 2012, the Redskins tendered a contract with Gano establishing exclusive negotiating rights and guaranteeing him a league minimum salary. He was once again forced to compete for his job after the team signed Neil Rackers. Originally it seemed that once again, Gano kept his spot on the Redskins' roster after Rackers was cut on August 27.In a surprise transaction by the Redskins, Gano was released the next day after the team signed Billy Cundiff. Never a fan favorite due to his inconsistency, Gano earned the nickname "Oh, No, Gano!"

Gano has missed on 26% of his FG attempts since joining the Redskins in 2009, which includes a league-high 10 misses in 2011

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.

was 24 of 35 in 2010 for a 68.6 kicking percentage

31 of 41 in 2011 for a 75.6 kicking percentage

Basically he sucks.

I'm saying a kicker is not this teams problem and you solve nothing by addressing it right now.

No, just a strange tendency around here to believe there is only one single problem with the team and you can't attempt to address any other issues unless it's the one issue random Internet guy thinks is the biggest issue.
