Yep. Made all of his kicks, booted the ball out of the end zone, and even helped to stop Sproles on a kickoff return.

Cundiff was a really good pickup. I'm generally forgiving on Gano and didn't think bringing in Rackers meant anything, but Cundiff is probably a top ten NFL kicker. And he was available. So kudos to the front office for getting him.

Baffled me when they cut him and even more so now. I mean he's a top tier kickoff guy and fine enough on FGs. Weird decision.

Ravens fans have scapegoated him. I wonder if there was a similar effect in the front office. Ozzie Newsome is so good that it seems unlikely, but still...

All I'll say is Cundiff did great for his first game with the Redskins. Lets see how he does the other 15 games. And remember, he was cut in Baltimore because he missed a SUPER BOWL kick, not like a regular season game winner or 41 yarder against the saints.

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.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

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!

I always hold my breath when we are kicking a FG. I don't trust any kicker but so much. He had a great game and his kick offs were money.

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.
