Nothing's wrong with embracing your religion and even talking about it with some of the guys on a one on one or friendly basis, but its another thing for it to be all you ever talk about/trying to convert.

Although in this situation, maybe it would'v been best for Shanahan to let that slide...
Dude should have been cut for his kicking,not religion
Isnt RG3 openly religous? Joe Gibbs?
Everybody hated Gibbs because he was openly religous{sarcasm}
Shanny should be fired for being openly stupid

Openly to me means, openly preaching it. If you're at work, you work. It's like when Victoria Jackson was on SNL telling everyone they were sinners and going to hell. You're there to tell jokes, tell jokes.

You're there to kick the ball, kick the ball.

Because he's a shitty QB.

I mean the thing with RG3 and Gibbs is I doubt they were in the locker room preaching the word of God. They were/are probably all football when it counted. What they do when their teammates aren't around and the cameras are off is their business.

Everyone knows Gibbs is a devout Christian but on the field and in the locker room he was a Hall of Fame coach.

I don't know what Gano did or didn't do but the moral of the story was it must've been upsetting to the some of the players. Gano wasn't that great of a kicker anyway. Religious beliefs or not, I don't think him getting cut was a huge loss. (Minus the fact we ended up with Cundiff )

Too bad his god didn't answer his prayers about being a good consistent kicker. Guess he should have prayed harder.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

My feelings are mixed. Almost every single player thanks god as part of a celebration after a big play. I'm a religious person but I find it absurd and distracting. But the point is, it's hypocritical for players to be upset at one guy for talking about religion privately amongst the team when the same players make showy displays and point to heaven after a touchdown in front of 100 million people. What I'm getting at is football is overwhelmingly religious as it is. People should just be more tolerant. If gano is the best kicker available, it shouldn't matter what he believes or how much he talks about it. Judge him on his play and nothing else....

That said, for all we know gano is some freak bringing snakes into the locker room and trying to get team mates to sacrifice chickens before every game lol

That sounds like a fable. If it's true, then the Redskins front office is pretty stupid. If players don't like it, all they have to do is tell Gano to shut the hell up.

That sounded a bit absurd, but I asked them this morning if they ever said anything like that or if it's even true. The answer "Never. 100% not true. Zero chance of that."

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Seems like a lot of the Redskins I follow on Twitter are "openly religious", so this doesn't make much sense at all.

Matty seems to me ,no matter who your team is, whenever a placekicker makes an attempt...everyone prays......one way or another.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Gano is pretty hard core conservative and maybe not the most "open-minded" person from what I know...but again, according to them, not the reason he was let go and not the reason he's not coming back.
