Yeah, that's what I'm doing when I refuse to blame him for the blocked kicks. :roll:

You mean you are not familiar with

You must have been away but a brief review of some threads here and smack will shed some additional light.
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

Maybe this is Shannahan's way of telling the team that there aren't going to be as many 40+ yard FG attempts going forward.... that maybe we'll be going for it on 4th and short inside the 20 yard line from now on; which is something I whole-heartedly approve of.

No doubt blocking was a factor. But 5 blocked kicks in a single season and the kicker doesn't share some of the blame? Come on, man. Its called special TEAMS.


Just like sacks, the coaches grade out whya play results in a sack. One of three groupd usually get blamed for the sack. The OL, the QB, and the RB/TE, but the stat goes down on NFL.com against the OL weahter it was their fault or not.

I would agree with you except for three things:
- theheadcoach said the blocks weren't his fault
- the Special Teams coach said the blocks weren't his fault
- most importantly Iwatched the games and I saw jail breaks where the gunner almost took the ball from the holder and the other seven times where someone in the middle of the D line got to the holder almost as soon as Gano did.

Please! :roll:


Sorry but I'll respectfully disagree and do it without the gay little eye roll icon. The line has to block the defense, and the kicker has to get enough elevation on his kick to get it over the defense. Just my opinion.

Go Cundiff. If we have 6 blocks again can we fire Danny Smith?

I was actually thinking of something similar but more like always going for it between the 33 and 43 pretty much regardless of how many yards we need.

Cundiff seems to be money inside the 50 ... well, except for the big one last year.

If Cundif stinks it up tonight, do they go back to Gano. Kinda of like a one game tryout. Cut Gano to use the roster spot for someone else. Cundif fails. Gano back. What do y'all think?

Cundif is looking good so far 39 yard FG right down the middle and 2 KOs through the end zone.
