They have a difficult schedule.

And well their offense is still their offense. Good but not great.

I don't see it but everyone has their opinion.
Who's clearly better?

Typical Redskins move if you ask me.
32 honestly isn't "old" for a kicker. He is basically in his prime.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

shocked by the Gano love, but when we let Carlos walk, people rejoiced. strange.

undrafted, statistically poor kicker > probowl corner, for a team in desperate need of secondary help

I'm not sure you could call this a "typical Redskins move"

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

The thing with graham gano is that you could never sit back and say "Oh, he's got this one" because he would be streaky. He did improve though last year, but he still wasn't in the top tier of Kickers. Cundiff was, until that playoff miss. We shouldn't worry about him missing playoff field goals for us anytime soon, but we should also treat him like a more experienced Gano. But the one thing I always say about kickers "If you have to rely on them winning the game for you, then you're really not that good of an offense if you can't get TDs"

Now I know that quote is going to get criticized and draw uproar, but the fact of the matter is if your team has been not converting on 3rd and 4th and shorts and has been fumbling, throwing picks and allowing big plays on defense, yet your team is somehow in the game, where a field goal will either tie it or win it, and the kicker misses it, all the blame goes to the kicker instead of the rest of the teams players who missed up earlier big time in the game.

It makes sense. Cundiff it is.

Billy Cundiff is the Redskins' new kicker - NFC East Blog - ESPN

Just look at our special teams over the course of Danny Smith's career here the past decade and you'll see they suck. The coverage teams, the blocked FGs, the endless penalties....it goes on and on and on. Sure, you can point the finger at the players, but if it's not corrected, it ultimately falls on the coach. Well, it's been long passed time to have parted ways with Danny.

Definitely can. This is like Dallas getting rid of Flozell Adams for Alex Barron. You get rid of a guy, and replace him with someone who is no better. I'd rather have the younger kicker who looks like he's on the rise.

I'd call that a typical fan reaction.

THAT is why there is a difference in the touch backs.

More importantly, do the Skins realize this?

Should have kept Rackers if they wanted "change." Not that he would have been any better IMO.
