1. Graham Gano can't be trusted in pressure situations

We hate to admit it, but goodness, Gano just can't be trusted with the game on the line anymore. He missed two field goals in Sunday's loss. Before kickoff, insider Art Stapleton revealed that Gano is dealing with a knee injury. After the game, however, Gano didn't use his knee as an excuse for his two missed kicks, including the one late in the fourth.

It's admirable that Gano spoke to the press and put the L on him. It doesn't change the fact that the Giants should have had a win locked up if he would have made a kick he normally does in his sleep. Gano was Mr. Automatic last season, which led to him receiving a three-year extension from Joe Schoen this past offseason.

Through seven games this year, Gano has made 10 field goals, but missed four. Normally we'd be quite confident in the former Pro Bowler to step up big for the Giants, but he is letting everyone down. Gano is a gamer with tons of experience, but his play this season has been too inconsistent. A change at the position may be needed, especially if he's injured.
