I am so crazy fed up with the kicker position I could scream!!!! I now want us to use our 2nd round pick to select the best kicker in college football...who ever that is......I realize thats extreme, but enough is enough! Billy was just sorry against the bucs!!! He left 9 points out there that almost cost us the game!!!!!

I'd welcome back Gano or Nick Novak*...

*Assuming Novak is released upon Nate Kaeding's healthy return to the Chargers.

Let's not get hasty. I think that we need to bring in someone to put a little pressure on Cundiff, but by no means do we just flat our get rid of him.

Cundiff had an off day but he still won the game for us. He stays for now. You can't cut a kicker every day they have a bad day. We need consistency in this organization

Cut his sorry axx.. 41 and 31 yard FG's are near gimme's in this day and age .. If it's some guy w/ potential right outta college --then cut him some slack but a 32 year old veteran.. Dump him!

You cannot afford to have two kickers on a roster therefore Cundiff will be given an extended stay. If he stays as a 75% kicker with no reliability 50+, then they will have to move on. I expect him to stick around for another three or four weeks.

The Ravens cut Billy for a reason!!!! Gano misses just as many kicks, but has a much stronger leg!!!! Billy really brings nothing to the table 50+. I say go with the kid if you are getting similar results!!!!!

The Ravens cut him cause they found a younger better kicker . We signed him thinking the missed kick against the Pats was an anomoly--now he's proven it wasn't ..Cut him today ..

copying my post from the GDT I just made since I just saw this thread open up.

Cundiff is 2/3 so far in the 4th(not counting that disaster of a choice to kick the 62 yarder) To pull 2 quotes from e in the initial signing thread.

"Finally, the conception people seem to have of Cundiff as a "choker" appears to be based solely on the miss last season against NE. Over the past 3 regular seasons, he is 9/9 on FGs kicked when the game was "late and close" (as defined by Yahoo!). In fact, he hasn't missed a regular season kick in the 4th quarter or OT at all since returning to the NFL in 2009."

"Which leaves us with the playoff kick. Including that miss, he's 12/14 (86%) as a postseason kicker, and he was riding an 11 consecutive playoff FGM streak until that kick.
"
If Gano is so great why has no one else picked him up surely someone else would have seen his hidden potential. He is 56% on 30-39 yard kicks, also is 50% on game winners within 52 yards.

Yesterday was a pretty awful performance by Cundiff(although he made it with the game on the line) but lets see what he can do he has been a consistent clutch kicker the last few years.

Any kickers get injured? Any kickers struggling wildly (other than Cundiff)? None. Gano will not see contact from teams (to come in) until this happens.

Fair enough, late cut in the preseason most opportunities are filled that part was completely unnecessary am just getting sick of people bringing up Gano like he wasn't a problem.

Yeah. He just made a game winning FG Wink that's about as high pressure as it gets. I dont care that he almost missed it, doesn't matter. The fact is he made it!

... This! Gano was not a good kicker for us. I think people need to start realizing that
