Just like David Akers? Cundiff is not better than Gano, read this:

Tries out for Dallas and gets replaced near the end of the season. Never heard from again in the NFL.

And I mean not only did he fall from grace but his last year in the league was simply brutal.



But to reiterate yeah there are definitely a handful of quality kickers that stay on top for a good while. But for every Adam Vinitari it feels like there are 3 or 4 Neil Rackers.
Excellent post.

This is what scares me, we don't need a Tony Romo of a kicker. The consistency is good but the first time he misses a kick with the game on the line, we'll all be calling for his head.

Gano is a good kicker but he's not great. Cundiff has more experience. Cundiff has kicked in playoff games and Gano hasn't. I was surprised to see Gano cut and I don't think Cundiff is truly an upgrade. Based on that statistics pertaining to that article, it appears that Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan are very naive in just cutting Gano and presenting the kicking job to Cundiff as a gift.

Might have a point there. On the other hand Cundiff probably had a few suitors and the only way to get him was to guarantee him the job. Plus maybe the staff thought they could sign Rackers or Gano mid season if Cundiff failed.

Ole Cundiff might not be our first week starter either..

Spin: Novak is kicking well, but unfortunately for him, Nate Kaeding is healthy and is also kicking well. It seems unlikely that the Bolts will elect to keep both kickers on the roster when the season begins, so Novak might be auditioning for another team at this point.
I'd take Nick back. That game-winner against Dallas is still fresh in my memory.

Of course, Troy Vincent and Sean Taylor helped out with that FG.

Funny as it may, it's not even that I'm a huge Gano supporter, but I just don't like blaming people for things they can't control (blocked kicks) or when the talent they bring in is not really any better. My issues still center around the ST coach.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

Gano's development was stunted by the lack of a Red Snapper on the roster.

word, I think Danny has done a decent job...his punt/kick coverages are very solid, I dont think he has had great kickers or punters talent wise to work with in his tenure. Id say he has had below average returners as well. I still think Banks can be special, even after last year. Sav is the best punter we've had in a long time and last year had a really good year.

Cundiff is the right choice in my opinion because of his consistancy within 45 yards. 3 points in our offense is extremely important and we need something we can count on.

Cundiff=Suisham

Shanahan will find out real quick when Cundiff can't make 50 yard or longer FG which Gano could.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

simple solution to our kicking situation:

i think cundiff stays as our extra point specialist
we sign rackers for field goals ≤ 49 yards
we sign gano for kickoffs + fgs > 49 yards

God help Cundiff if he misses some of those <50 "layups". I will smack him down over and over in the smackdown thread.
B.Cundiff 46 yard field goal is No Good, Wide Right, Center-N.Sundberg, Holder-S.Rocca.

Look her it is manipulated to sound like Cundiff is good:

6. The best kicking leg in the league: whacked. You can look it up. Over the past two years, Billy Cundiff is a 90 percent field goal kicker inside the 50 (53 of 59), and no other kicker averaged more yards per kickoff (69.5) or had more touchbacks than his 84. But the Ravens, bugged more by his 1-of-7 from 50-plus in the last two seasons than his crucial miss in the AFC title game last January, cut him Sunday. They prefer to save $1.5 million on the cap and go with a four-year kickoff man from the University of Texas, Justin Tucker. Risky move for a Super Bowl contender.


Bottom line; Redskins said we need more accuracy inside 50 yards then we do outside of 50 yards. They are rolling the dice. They want to make sure they make the layups and take a chance of on their 3PT percentage. That is what Cundiff gives them over Gano.
0-1 as a Redskin

B.Cundiff 46 yard field goal is No Good, Wide Right, Center-N.Sundberg, Holder-S.Rocca.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

I can already see Cundiff is going to have no slack here eh?

Who says Gano would have made it? Or Rackers?
