Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Going back the Chris Russell thing talking about Gano being openly religious played a part. Here is a twitter exchange that clarifies what he said.

T Mullick ‏@TMM75
Listening to @ESPNRadio980's post game audio from Sunday and @Russellmania980 really said Gano's religious leanings are what got him cut?


Chris Russell ‏@Russellmania980
@TMM75 @ESPNRadio980 That's not true, but u can walk away thinking that if u choose to believe that.


T Mullick ‏@TMM75
@Russellmania980 @ESPNRadio980 Just trying to understand what you were trying to say.


Chris Russell ‏@Russellmania980
@TMM75 @ESPNRadio980 - I was asked if there were any other reason besides just performance. So I answered what I believe to be true.




Also, another gem stat:


Dan Steinberg ‏@dcsportsbog

If the Skins axe Cundiff by Sunday, they'll be on 19 kickers since 1994. NFL avg is about 8.5. No other team above 13. Redskins lead the NFL in kicking changes

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Looks like we have Josh Brown, Olinde Mare, and Kai Forbath are trying out today.

Chris Russell ‏@Russellmania980
Olindo Mare is 39 (22-28) last year w/ CAR, 78.6% with 84 kickoffs, & 53 touchbacks (new rules). In '10, was (25-30, 83.3%) (72 KO, 20 TB)


Chris Russell ‏@Russellmania980
Per @NFL .com - PK Josh Brown had only 15 touchbacks on 54 KO's in '11, while playing in a dome at home (STL). In '10, 73 KO's & 5 touchback

Has there ever been a kicker that left the skins and didn't get a job somewhere else?
Gano doesn't count

Novak and suisham both had horrible years after they left.

We finally need to address this in the offseason.

I agree with BHA that he wasnt as incosistant as some people think he was, at least in 2011. He was 31 out of 41 with 5 being blocked. If all his blocks were made he would be 88%, although some of the kicks may have been missed and some of the blocks may very well be his fault. No excuse for kicks out of bounds though.

I think why people liked him is that he is a young kicker with a very strong leg that was getting better. He also owns the Redskins record for longest field goal. I liked him because he broke his back and kept playing and made a FG. I thought that was pretty sweet. Maybe not Trent Williams bone bruise im proving myself and need to let everyone know tough, but still tough nonetheless.....

I always thought Mare had a bit of a noodle leg. Not a lot of strength but accurate.

I could be totally wrong... Considering he's been out of the NFL for.. Oh, I dunno... About 2 years?

I like it. Think about it. It is very true.

Forbath to me sounds worth a shot.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

I'm hoping we go with Brown or Forbath. I liked what people here were saying about him a few pages back. Go young!

I agree 100%. With Brown and Mare we know what we'd be getting.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

I"m with the others, I'd rather see what Forbath brings to the table. We are in the same situation with Brown that we were with Cundiff. Hoping he rebounds from a bad year.
