Can Rocca convert over to kickoff duties? Not sure how much of a leg he has for touch backs.

i forgot the punting part, he did have a 55 yard punt against us in preseason. but the totals that game were 6 punts, 34.7 avg. forget that 55 yarder, that's a 30.6 avg, maybe just a little shy of "awesome".

You knew it was coming. Cundiff should have made those kicks, especially the ones in Tampa. The Redskins should have put up 30 points in that game. Then he stinks it up at Fed Ex Field the other day. Even the kick Cundiff made against the Bucs to win the game was just inside the upright so he could have easily missed that kick too. It was time for Cundiff to go. He wore out his welcome.

He never should've signed Cundiff. Everyone knew the guy's confidence was shot after he choked in the championship game. Plus he was never an elite kicker. The move simply made no sense and there's been too much of that since Shanahan's been here. Now he's signing a kicker that's never kicked in an NFL game.

Kai Forbath can boot those long range field goals consistently. The guy is money on kicks beyond 50 yards. As far as Cundiff is concerned, I completely agree with you. He never beat Gano for the job. Shanahan just cut Gano and just handed Cundiff the job which I think was wrong. He should have allowed for Gano to mess up and then bring in another kicker if Gano was unable to perform. I think going into his 3rd full season, Gano would have straighten out his problems with consistency but we'll never know now.

I'm happy with the new kicker.

From Wiki currently

"Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed Forbath for the Queen of Spain on April 17, 2012. He was subsequently annexed by Spain on May 23, 2012. On July 12, 2012, Forbath's pelvis declared itself a sovereign nation. Currently, the Untied Nations does not recognize Forbath's pelvis' independence."

re: Update: Redskins Sign K Kai Forbath and OLB Mario Addison/Waive Cundiff and White

I mean all the veterans are "scrap-heap" guys at this point. If you're a vet kicker and NOT on a team 5 weeks in you're just a guy. It's the truth. Maybe you get brought in and stay hot for a while but you're not going all of a sudden become a stud kicker. Look around the league...the good kickers all came in as young guys and developed. At this point what is the benefit of a guy like Brown compared to Forbath? Nothing. Brown is what he is. Forbath may be more than what he currently is. We gave Gano a similar chance and he didn't develop enough. Cundiff was a "on paper" upgrade who went in the tank. This new guy might develop into a solid kicker. If not he isn't much worse than a decent vet. Which is all that is available.

Gano was pretty darn good, so if Korbath is as good as Gano but without whatever "issues" caused Shanahan to dislike him, then i think we'll be in good shape.... certainly better off than where we were.

None of the veterans were even remotely appealing. Mare and Longwell are both like 300 years old and neither could kick the dust off their own feet. I'd much rather go with a highly touted young guy like Korbath who has upside than veterans whos best days are behind them for a 100 percent certainty.

RACKERS RACKERS RACKERS
The 36-year-old kicker has played for the Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans over 12 seasons, and his 88.2 field goal percentage over the last three years is third best in the NFL over that span.
tHE ONLY REASON HE'S STILL NOT KICKING FOR TEXANS WAS CONTRACT ISSUE,NOT PERFORMANCE BASED

Im all for upside,but Gano had "upside" so we stuck with him and we see how that turned out

Bad thought.

Forbath might end up being just as good as Chip Lomiller was. We just have to wait and see.
