Training camp starts in a few days, marking the third year of the Shanahan era. With each new training camp comes a new batch of questions regarding the team. As training camp approaches, we will examine some of these questions.
Will Rackers Oust Gano?
This year, Shanahan is up to his old tricks. This time the kicker is Neil Rackers, fantasy football super-hero, former Pro-Bowler, and finalist for NFL's sexiest man a few years back. While Graham kicked 6 field goals for 2 different teams last season, Rackers was the Texans main man hitting 32 of 38.
Rackers is an upgrade from Shayne Graham, although he is also on the down side of his career. He is a pretty accurate kicker and he still has the leg to kick 50 yarders. But so Does Gano.
The job is Gano's to lose, and if he thinks it will be anything like last year he is very wrong. This could be the most interesting position battle of camp...
