Kicker?

it can’t be understated how valuable it is to have a kicker who can attempt 60+ yard field goals in games and actually have a chance as well as consistently kicking the ball out of the end zone on kickoffs. 

The contract is a mess but we could do a lot worse. Let’s hope his leg is ok.

To that point Slye hit a 55 yarder with plenty of room to spare.

Agreed and it’s more impressive that it was done in Chicago. Hard field to kick in. Slye was definitely impressive last night.

In a preseason game with no pressure.

What's not to like about your backup kicker performing well, and on the road no less?

I'm going to be extremely blunt about this, but only losing franchise fanbases Stan for an overpaid kicker. Some of you need to maybe reflect and reevaluate priorities. This isn't Jerry Richardson's Panthers anymore. Ya'll can ride off into the sunset right along with Gano if you like him so much. Deuces.

I'd say your job on the line and any future opportunities is about as much pressure as there is

For a camp body kicker who's a total long shot to make the team that's as much pressure as he's probably ever had to kick under. That's him creating film for another team if not ours.

I say keep the new guy. So far he looks good enough to me. Trade Gano to the Bears.

Gano slumped a bit after the NYG game last year, and isn't worth that money.

I don't really care for Gano on a personal level, either.

Gano's first order of business after a bad game is to go around blocking fans on Twitter.

That really says all you need to know.

More Joey S please.

They did win a lot of games under Frank, which is why they have the longest bowl game streak in the nation. Are they an elite team? No. Are they a solid program with good college prospects? Yes. 

Oh, and Ohio State won the national championship in 2014 with just one loss. To Virginia Tech. At home in Ohio. 

Good to know we got some fellow Hokie Fans here...Got a schedule this season where we can win at least 10 games

Since Gano arrived. 

The Panthers have been the best team in the NFL in terms of touchback %.  A totally unsexy and underappreciated feat.

Wasn't Olindo Mare touted for his touchback % too?

Some of you are shell shocked and just never learn.

I'm just talking statistical fact. 

The Panthers have been the best in the NFL since 2013.    That is field position.  That is the elimination of potential big plays.   Our coach is Ron Rivera.  Seems like a good thing if you ask me.

I'm not negating your point. Though admittedly if we're keeping it real we have to admit over the years our special teams has been iffy with Rivera. How many times have we practically had to cover our eyes on special teams plays?

But if you're a team wanting to get better for the future, not just the present, you don't let young talented players walk out the door in favor of aging veterans and expect to keep on winning. That's the Panthers way of doing things that we're trying to move beyond. If Thomas frigging Davis can get cut, let's dispense with this hand wringing over the kicker.
