Gano appreciation

32 posts in this topic

Gano is a great guy too. I spoke with him in the hotel in Arizona and he is as personable and approachable as the come. I wish him all the success in the world and a long and healthy career here in Charlotte.

I believe in him all the way up to 65 yards. He's incredible

Dudes got a Boot! Nice to not have "the kicker" problem anymore.

I really hope this guy is the long-term answer because it's gutting as a fan and even as a player when you can't count on your place kicking game to score you points. Not to mention he is money on kickoffs.

 

Then again I have to ask myself is Gano this good or was Mare just that fuging awful? I suspect the answer is a bit of both.

Kickers will drive the ball a bit when they are farther out.   Gano hurts that football.  You can hear the thud when he hits it.  His line is exceptional.  That 55 yd field goal split the uprights.   Right down the middle.   Not bad from that far out.

Best in the league.

Not bad for a guy that many didn't evwn want on the team.

Yeah I remember the offseason threads this past offseason begging for a new kicker. For the world of me I couldn't figure out what Gano did to deserve the alienation treatment he was getting. He missed 1 PAT due to rust. Gano had only been signed for 1 week or two when it happened.

Athletes sitting home on their couch are not going to come back being all-pro. Glad Ron understands that.

To be fair, Gano was never reliable for the Redskins.  He only made 68.6% of his FG tries in 2010 and 75.6% in 2011.  I don't think any Panthers fan thought we were getting a great kicker when we signed him, but that's exactly what he's been for us.  I hope he keeps it up!

You know what's funny? He kicked the middle of the ball on his FG today and line drived it straight down the pipe.

 

He kicked that ball on a line that made it look like one of those kicks that drops just short of splitting the uprights.  Thats how

 

it looked to me on tv.  So I had to wait for the officials and crowd reaction to know that he made it.  Atleast we can breathe

 

easier knowing that we now have a capable kicker.
