If it was their fault, yes. A shank is a shank. Gano had plenty of those with no fault but his own.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

cundiff did a lot better on kickoffs. so even if they end up tied in FG%, that's still a major difference.

I didn't watch tonight's game. There were some concerns about Cundiff struggling on FG 50 yards and over. Luckily that 46 yard miss came in preseason. But Gano would have made that particular attempt.

But he would've missed one of the other 3 that Cundiff made.

Right, Gano woulda made all of them. 4 for 4, because he never missed, ever.

Looks like there really is some competition at the kicker spot.

Well, let's cut the guy some slack. He had only been signed 48 hours before the game. New snapper, new holder.

RG3 can be our back up kicker with Zo as the backup punter. LOL.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

Truth be told, I'm more worried about this.

NFL to use replacement officials for start of regular season - ESPN

Ugghhhh....

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

The over 50 yard kick argument bothers me.
Screw 50 yard kicks.
I want to win by scoring touchdowns, not struggling to get to the opponents 40.

Ok how about 45 yards and above? Just like Suisham, he'll miss those.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

If you eliminate the blocked kicks (debateable - see Dallas loss), there is not a single game in which a better field goal kicker would have won it for us last year. Obviously it is hard to hold constant other factors like momentum, situational play calls, etc. I guess my point is that Gano-to-Cundiff change doesn't matter that much.

I agree with AW for once. I'd rather have a guy automatic from inside the 50, because when you think about it, what's the average for kicks attempted inside the 50 versus outside the 50? Gano might have made the 50 yarders, but you never knew if he was going to make a simple 30 yarder or not. Those are the ones that hurt, when you go on a long drive and instead of even getting 3 out of it you get nothing.
