I don't know anything about Timberlake since my knowledge of the Giants starts roughly around 1969, but George Hunt, who was the kicker for the 1975 season, had his share of inexcusable mediocrity. He actually beat out long-time kicker Pete Gogolak, who the Giants let go of two weeks before the start of the '75 season. Then-coach Bill Arnsparger thought Hunt was kicking better than Gogolak in training camp. Ditto Jim O'Brien, the former Colt kicker, who also was there for the 1975 training camp. Fortunately the Giants got a miracle in Joe Danelo, who played from 1976-82.
