Cundiff beat out Gano to get the Baltimore job...



Gano is going to have to go Walter White on Cundiff.

I half-thought when I saw Cundiff cut that we would bring him in. The other part of me thought we would simply let Gano kick the last game.

My guess is that Gano will get the bulk of the kicks this week and in the game and if he craps the bed, we roll with Cundiff.

Personally, I'd rather have Gano.

Cundiff....really? Of all the kickers you would seek to replace him with, it's Cundiff.

I would rather have kept Rackers if the plan was to replace him at all costs.

I don't know what he's talking about, Gano himself said he was released.

Same here!

Replace a kicker with basically the same % (and who had 5 kicks blocked last year mostly due to bad blocking) with a kicker who has the "yips" and is a decade older.

Not a smart long-term solution.

You have got to be kidding me... I don't want any former Cowboys on this team! Especially a proven playoff choker! Evil or Very Mad

Great move other than the kick in the playoff cunduff is a very. Good kicker. He is 89%u in the 50 and under midrange and had almost broke the touchback record.


Gano-wasn't that good he was up and down ti much and pleaseI akers-2 can some.one yell me they wheel not having heart attacks with this guy. Gano that is.[/img]


And please gano has Bern unclutch morethan cunduff should we bring in the rainy bucs game?

Well, it must be mental because of the physical ability is there. Billy Cundiff is a slightly better Suisham, for those unfamiliar with him.

Always liked Gano, this is a mistake in my opinion. Gano has a huge leg. Hes still a young guy and if you give him a FG blocking unit that could do their job Gano would be a good kicker.

Cundiff, 32 made only 76 percent (28 of 37) of his field goals last season. He was 8-of-15 from beyond 40 yards. He is 1-for-9 from 50 yards or longer over the last three seasons. Gano, meanwhile, was 4-of-6 from 50 yards or longer in 2011.

Just for context, this is the type of kicker we are getting. Like Suisham, he shanks the long ones, and look how that has worked out for the Steelers and Ravens when they needed those kicks in the playoffs.

After reading these stats, I really dont understand this signing.
