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.

I could be totally wrong... Considering he's been out of the NFL for.. Oh, I dunno... About 2 years?
And he's 39.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

forbath needs to show he can get the touchbacks. in his very small sample; he's about 22% (2/9 - doubt he attempted any onside kicks in preseason). no stiff competition from josh brown there...

since the rule change, brown is still only 28% (15/54 - not accounting for onside kicks)

olindo mare: 62% (53/84 - not accounting for onside kicks)

compare to cundiff: 59% (62/105 - not accounting for onside kicks)

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

While I wont miss the shoddy FGAs I certainly will miss being able to go get a drink on our kickoffs since Billy just crushed them consistently for no return. Our field position game may take a hit.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

We leave 15 or so points in several total games this year and we are worried about 5 yards on a kickoff. I would rather have a guy that i can actaully drink my beer during the game with the worry hes going to shank the xtra point

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

I'm kinda surprised Rackers isn't getting a look today, but I guess they already determined he's not their guy from training camp.

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.
Maybe I am wrong, but the quote you put here in no way equals your earlier statement

The actual airtime quote as you have it, says that Gano's inaccuracy was a primary source of their frustration and other factors may have made the decision more palatable. Your interpreted quote makes it sound like the openly religious issue was essentially why Shanahan got rid of Gano.

I don't see how the airtime quote you used in anyway equates to the statement you attributed to it.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

the arguement that Shanny would get rid of a guy because he is religious the utterly idiotic. If he would do his job and make kicks, he'd still be here.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

I don't know about salary cap, but could we keep cundiff as a kickoff specialist, get the young guy in for FG's, and cut someone else? Not sure if it works, but seems like some other teams have done that.
