Around the time of the Dallas game, there were many who wanted to see the Redskins cut kicker Graham Gano. I’m sure that there would have been no shortage of volunteers to drive him to the airport after he missed two field goals. One may have given the Redskins a win in regulation, the other would have won the game in overtime.
The next week, Gano missed a field goal and an extra point and even though both were blocked due to massive breakdowns in the middle of the protection, the calls for a new kicker barely diminished.
Since then, however, Gano has been money. He has made 13 in a row including going four of four twice, against the Jets and Vikings.
If you take out blocked field goals, he is 30 of 35 on the season. That’s 86 percent, tied for 14th in the NFL. That’s not great but it has him tied with David Akers of the 49ers and just ahead of the likes of Jason Hanson of the Lions and Adam Vinatieri of the Colts.
Given that, what should the Redskins do with Gano this coming season?
