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.

It didn't seem to help much last year. We just moved the big play from special teams to against our defense.

Is that why they drafted Harrison butker?

They?  As in Dave Gettleman?

Keep Slye and cut Gano.  Should be an easy decision to save a lot of money.  

Gano's dead cap is 5.5 million this year, and like 3 million the next. It's a poo contract, especially considering he's not even that reliable, but he cannot be cut. Trade him to the Bears lol.

This was a smart argument when touchbacks were at the twenty’s. This is a dumb argument with them at the 25. 

Only idiot coaches are having their kicker bang it through the end zone and not relying on their coverage unit to make a tackle on a guy before the 20. 

Ron just recently started doing this and still doesn’t do it all the time. Watch the pats play and you will see gostkowki pooch it down to the five and then slater run down and make a tackle around the 18.

I never knew this thread would go for this long. It has always ben a question of concern. We seem to bring in really good kickers each year, for them to mosey over to another team.

In a possible future Ron will riverboat it up and say fug FGs and XPs, we are going for max points 24/7 - it’s endzone or nothing.

If Thomas frigging Davis can get cut, let's dispense with this hand wringing over the kicker.

Thomas Davis wasn't cut.  Davis played out his contract & the Panthers declined to offer him a new one.

Gano has 3 yrs left on his current deal which was agreed to in March of 2018. 

This is what Hurney said at the time the new deal was agreed to:

“He’s been very productive in his time here and he had as good a year as I’ve seen a kicker have last season,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney told the Observer.

“To solidify that position, which let’s be honest - he’s the guy that’s in position to win games for you - I think it was very important for us to get him signed and in the fold for four years.”

“It’s not only field goals with Graham, it’s (also) kickoffs,” Hurney said. “His leg is so strong. He just gives you so much versatility with the kickoffs (and) on field goals.”

This is a very odd thing to choose to argue about. He wanted to keep playing for the Panthers, the team chose to part ways because of age and contract numbers. At the end of the day that's what it boils down to. That's no different from the situation with Gano. If the front office decides Gano's contact doesn't line up with his current play/injuries, you think he won't be shown the door in favor of a younger and less expensive option the same as Thomas Davis Sr was?

Tbh someone should have shown the "why your team sucks" crew this thread, and this honestly would have been all that needed to be said. Only fans of a perennial losing franchise would go to these lengths to prop up a mediocre kicker.

You're kidding right?

There were no "contract numbers" and as such no financial ramifications for not offering Davis another deal.

There are significant financial ramifications for cutting Gano.

This is @Billy_T right? :Eyes_Emoji_42x42:

You always give yourself away sooner or later. The quotes with underlines are a dead giveaway lol.

Safe to say we can end this convo here, good day.

Appears you are not interested in dealing with the facts.  Clearly you do not understand what the facts are.

Damn...I took a 5-day break from this thread and @TheRed is still in here whining about Gano lol. Who knew he cared so much about any one player not named Cam Newton? I’m honestly surprised you could even name one.
