Well thats not what Chris Said on ESPN980.

Check the ESPN980 Audio Vault - 10/7/2012 Chris Russell Post Game and start listening around the 6 minute mark.

Al Michaels: Would Shanahan bring him (Cundiff) back? Do you think he'd swallow his pride and..

Russell: No, i dont think he will, because i dont think Mike likes him very much

Al : Do you know why that is? What is it that he specifically doesnt like about him?

Chris: i know some things. Hes frustrated with his consistency... and then there's other elements to it that i'm not quite sure if that, you know, necessarily belongs in this forum, but you know - Graham is a very religious person and i've heard some things that that irked some people. So you know, there's something to that i beleive. I don't know that absolutely 100% for sure, and i dont want to accuse somebody of something, but that is what i was told.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Al Michaels on 980? Anyway, I don't know what to tell you. It's no secret MS doesn't like Gano, like he didn't like Atogwe. And it's not secret Gano is conservative/religious. But I asked "did you say Gano was cut and isn't coming back because he's too religious and it bothers the team" I can ask again

I definitely lose alot of respect for him for denying he said something on live radio. If you listen to it, its obvious he was uncomfortable talking about it. Maybe he broke someones confidence and is trying to do damage control.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

If it's at all true then there has to be something more to it. Like he directly attacked a teammate for their lifestyle choice or something like that. But I seriously doubt it, because Gano never says a word

Maybe Gano is a radical Santerian? It must get old coming back to your locker and finding chicken entrails and blood everywhere.

Dude can you lose that quote or put it under the quote line? It is annoying; it shows up on Taptalk too. I am tired of reading it; thinking it is part of your post.

While I think that part may have irked Shanny, I seriously doubt he got rid of him because of that. Even CR hints at this being a rumor, but not sure he ties it to why Gano was cut. I think Gano was cut because he's too damn inconsistent and if he could be replaced by somebody equal that Mike liked, he would be. Now, maybe Mike disliked Gano on a personal level due to him being a preachy/openly religious. I can buy that.

Either way, it's good info and thanks for sharing.

No. He's a ES insider. His information is usually legit and matches most of what Smoot says. Most likely have the same sources. He does good break down on film with the all 22 footage.

I honestly dont agree that Gano was THAT inconsistent. The blocks from last year were not his fault. In my opinion, he was the best we'd had in a while, but thats not saying much. Of the guys out there now, i think he's the best available - by a wide margin. I want Cundiff gone as much as the next guy, but i think Cundiff is better than any of the guys we're supposedly bringing in today. We may be "stuck" with Cundiff.

I happen to agree with you. I was not in favor of cutting Gano for Cundiff. I didn't think it was a upgrade in any shape, form or fashion. This is one of the few mistakes Mike has made during his tenure (McNabb, Haslett, Cundiff,Danny Smith) that I haven't agreed with.
