Well cutting a good kicker for missing one kick is retarded. Even a really important kick. I wasn't sure Cundiff was a great upgrade over Gamo but his kickoffs today were as big a factor in the game as almost anything else. Keeping the ball away from Sproles is paramount.

And pretty much all of his field goals except for one appeared to be absolutely straight down the middle, and his kick offs were fantastic. Almost wished I had started him on my fantasy team.

Shoot, Cundiff alone might be worth two more wins in the column.

Why did the Ravens release this guy? Inside the 50 this guy seems money.

We all had to hold our breath whenever Gano kicked, it was very calming to know if the O moved the ball in to the 30's we were coming away with points!

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

I was nervous on that last one, was that 47 yards?

I was thinking, this is close to his 50-yard max range...but he made it easily.

Looks like Shanahan made another good decision, even though it confused the fans.

LOL. Cundiff did everything right in the game and looks to be the best we've had for a long, long time. Ravens def we're dummies to let him go.

He's been under 80% between 30-39 yards for the last four years; granted that's better than Gano, but it isn't exactly money.

However, I agree that this change alone will translate into more wins. I'd rather have Gano than Cundiff kicking a 50 yarder in OT, but with Cudiff the game is less likely to go into overtime in the first place.

You also have to wonder what it does for an offense when they have faith in their kicker to put through a routine kick; one would imagine that it takes a little pressure of the offense knowing that when they have the ball in opposing territory, they don't have to be flawless to come away with points.

His first kick was the one I was worried about. It barely squeezed in the right upright.

Yeah, I thought if it had been lower it might have bounced off the upright.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

I like the signing of Cundiff. But Graham Gano was starting to come on strong and it appears that Mike Shanahan's patience with him ran out. Seeing as though Cundiff is the more experienced kicker, does anyone here think that a mistake was made in the Redskins releasing Gano? I was hoping Gano would be to the Redskins what Adam Vinetari was once to the New England Patriots.

After seeing last week I can't see why anyone would think letting Gano go was a mistake.
