He never kicked in front of the new coaches. 

“I think it was actually the day I was coming back to kick in front of the new coaches [in July 2020],” Gano said. “I was walking out the door and they stopped me and said, ‘Just wait.’ And they cut me right then. That was gonna be my first day kicking in front of the new staff.”

So my question is which or both medical staffs are at fault here for costing us an excellent kicker?

I interpreted it as, the damage was already done by the previous staff. Not sure why Hurney and Rhule didn’t at least give him a shot, so both. Just a failure on either side of the spectrum.

The previous medical staff.  New coach and new medical started last year, and he was cut before doing anything for the new staff.

He was probably cut due to his age, cap hit, and contract end date regardless of his play.  Last years offseason seemed to be all about getting younger and creating future cap space.

I never thought Gano was as bad as many made him out to be.  Kasay spoiled us; teams like the Vikings have suffered through decades of kicker struggles.  Having lived through Olindo Mare and others of his kickless ilk, Gano at least made some clutch kicks for us.


Kickers miss sometimes.  He won us games, he lost us games.  But he’s more consistent than anyone we’ve had since.  Sucks having 2 competent kickers on your team, letting them go elsewhere to succeed, and still flounder around for a decent replacement.

being a doctor and diagnosing issues is not always an exact science, a lot of times they are asking questions and making guesses to the most likely cause of the issue. this is why people get second opinions.

Yeah, haven't these people seen House??

I know Doctors are human and multiple opinions should be a no brainer when it comes to your health but how do you miss a fracture in the largest bone in your body and somehow relate it to a tendon? Doesn’t a simple x-ray show you the bone? Very odd to me.
