Quit your crying. You want a great kicker you need to put up the cash. You wanna go back to Medlock and Mare?

I would pie u twice if I could

and most were cool with it as long as we could keep kasay. oye. sometimes you've got to move on from a team icon when the cost well exceeds the level of talent. just make sure you replace that icon with someone that doesn't crap the bed (mare). the only thing worse than losing a  favorite is watching their replacement suck.

 

btw, this contract is so much better than the on  we gave mare. i mean it may be more, but we gave mare his contract before we realized how bad he was. gano is much better than anyone could have thought or hoped for. dude realy helped us and earned that deal.

 

What was Mare, 38 or something?  The fact that we have a solid defense and want to establish the run makes him a real weapon.  Get the ball inside the opponent's 40 and you have a shot at 3 points. No kickoff returns.  Pretty awesome.  Heck, if he wins us 2 games a year, he is worth more than what we paid him. 

 

Heck, if you consider how many yards he saves us with his range and by eliminating kickoff returns, he impacts field position.

 

"sometimes you've got to move on from a team icon when the cost well exceeds the level of talent."  --- every successful NFL frachise has this in common.  Well said.

Anyone bitching about this deal should realize how much his kickoffs helped our defense last year.

Maybe a little too much, but this is good. Gano is a monster at getting touchbacks.

We never really had a problem with stability at kicker with Kasay here for so long and I think most took that for granted. Locking Gano up was important, he has been money since he's been here. Not usually a fan of that kind of money to kickers but we had to get him signed. Better than Mare for god sakes..

Great kicker who put up for a year and a half to get a deserving contract. Entertaining as fug on twitter too.
