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?

Gano and Rackers would have both made kicking backwards and launching the ball with the back heel of their weakside foot.

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.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

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.
