He can't be worse than Gano, so I am ok with it. No negative impact expected.

Baltimore fans were negatively impacted by Cundiff's choke from 32 yards that ended their season in the AFC Championship. If it was about consistency inside 45 yards, we should have just gone with Rackers IMO.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

The Redskins front office is a bunch of blowhard idiots. They have continued time and time again to pass over the best kicker in the history of the game.....

MIKE HUSTED!!!!!


COME AT ME BRO!!!!

True, but had Lee Evans held on to the football in the end zone, Cundiff never would have had to 'try' that kick to force overtime.

Rackers - Gano - Cundiff. Who cares, flip a coin.

With all the weapons on offense now, Skins won't be kicking FGs >50yds.

That's true. I remember a lot of people complaining about Gano sucking when he was kicking from over 50 yards. Gotta hope that we can at least get close enough to keep the majority of FGs to 40 yards and under.

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

Both kickers and kick returners baffle me. At no position do players seem to go from zero to hero and back quicker than those two spots.

Not even QB?

Re: Redskins Sign K Billy Cundiff, Release Gano

The release of Graham Gano was a very surprising move to me. But I understand Bruce Allen's logic. Billy Cundiff was available. He's been to playoffs and has a lot of experience. Gano in retrospect to Cudiff, only has potential. So for Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen it was a no brainer. I'm still surprised by the move to cut Gano though.

0-19 Yards, both 100% (one attempt each)
20-29 Yards, Cundiff 100% on 20 attempts, Gano 88% on 25 attempts
30-39 Yards, Cudiff 86% on 21 attempts, Gano 56% on 16 attempts
40-49 Yards, Cundiff 82% on 17 attempts, Gano 76% on 25 attempts
50+ Yards, Cundiff 14% on 7 attempts, Gano 44% on 9 attempts

Look at the atrocious performance from Gano from 30-39 yards. Those are FGs you have to make, especially if you're still developing as a Red Zone offense. If you're kicking from 30-39 it means the ball sits at the 13 - 23 yard line. It means your red zone offense stalled, and you desperately need to put those points on the board to atone for the lost TD opportunity in the red zone.

With Cundiff, you know you can't count on a 50 yarder to win the game, but at least you can plan for that. You know your 2 minute offense needs to target the 25 yard line to put the game away safely. With Gano, it almost doesn't matter whether you're trying a 55 yarder or a 35 yarder, he's shaky from both distances. You can't count on him to make it, every time he comes out it's a dice roll.

Stronger leg does not equal better kicker. Give me Cundiff.
Schneed's ability to run the numbers is making a believer out of me on this move....good job!

It was almost certainly Cundiff's missed FG in the AFC Championship game alone that made him unwelcome in Baltimore and available to the Redskins.
I think that miss turned out to be a good thing for the Skins.
I recall another guy that choked in the playoffs that ended up with the Skins...his name Byner, that worked out pretty well for us.
