Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

I could definitely see bringing him in. Was Cundiff cut for a reason other than money?

Gano's no superstar but these two aren't too far about. I like that Gano is so young and we could potentially have a kicker for a long time if he develops. Also, he does have a very strong leg and has been improving every year. I was hoping this would be the year he really makes strides.

Oh well. Cundiff is better than some of the kickers we've had over the years.

At least we've had good luck with punters. Hunter Smith was our leading scorer, now Sav Rocca, a LB who punts.

Yeah I mean to me I don't see this as Cundiff vs. Gano. I see it as Cundiff vs. Rackers. And what he saw in Cundiff that he didn't see in Rackers I'm not really sure.

Bad move in my opinion. If Cundiff doesn't work out, there's Giorgio Tavecchio who kicked at Cal, the 49ers just released him. Pretty good kicker.

Yeah, he was outperformed by a rookie kicker in camp.

A guy named Giorgio should be able to kick. They weren't going to keep anyone over Akers, so he was just s camp body for them. Lets bring him in.

Rackers has really fallen far, fast. A few years ago, he was one of the best in the league with Arizona.

Honestly, if Cundiff doesn't work out, there is a strong likelihood that Gano is still available mid-season. This isn't a terrible move imo and there is always turnover at the kicker position for most of the league throughout the season, anyway.

Not according to this; to me it sounds like the Ravens want to save some dollars and thought the rookie was on par with Cundiff:

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

I don't get the "I don't like this move" sentiment. I mean I can see that this is a head-scratcher in some ways but it's not like we cut a pro-bowl kicker for a scrub. At worst this was a lateral move.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

Should have just kept Gano. At least he was young and possibly could have turned things around (which I honestly felt he was doing). Now we have an old, washed up kicker, who is no better.

Typical Redskins move if you ask me.

I don't see it but everyone has their opinion.
They're certainly in the conversation in the AFC at the very least.

He can't help poor blocking and coaching.
