Glad to see him crush that long FG.  Hopefully he keeps it up.  While he misses a FG here and there, could be a lot worse such as what the Vikes and Browns endured last week.  yikes.

I remember the rookie saying Gano was one of the best LY when he was working with him

the 54 yard should boost his confidence...we will need him

Gano had a bad 2016 season but so did most of the team. He was solid last season and seems solid in 2018. Only knock I have on Gano is the Panthers kept him over Butker who would have been way cheaper in the short term, and probably the answer at kicker for 15 years. I can see why they didn't trust a rookie kicker with a playoff ready roster though.

Call me crazy, but I don't think Gano had any lack of confidence. Where is that tale coming from?

The thing everyone - including Rivera - needs to keep in mind is that overall, kickers only average about 60% on field goals of more than 50 yards.  It's just barely better than a coin flip.

Gano is a fine kicker, and you can't stop giving him chances because you lose on a coin flip once.

He struck that ball beautifully. Ugh! Rivera's decision in the Philly game last year.... What in the absolute fug was that? If you think about it, 3 points before the half there could've made all the difference in that game. That game propelled the Eagles on to win the Super Bowl. If we win that game and go 13-3 last season could've been a completely different story.

I was referring to Rivera's lack of confidence in not letting him attempt but 1 field goal of more than 50 yards.

Not with our receiving corps being banged the hell up.

Oh, OK. I still think it would be odd for Rivera to lose confidence after one measly kick. I just thought it was Rivera being Rivera---you know, relying on his defense...

We're lucky to have Gano. He's pretty much worry free (except for that time post surgery) and you can't ask much more than that. Good kickers get you championships.

Range increases on turf with no weather in a dome.  Much easier decision than with any sort of wind or weather factor outside, not that I'm defending not attempting within 55 yards or so
