Looks like we've got our new kicker...another one with a weird name. Hopefully this one can make FG's though.

Funny I never noticed Cundiff was #5. No wonder he sucked worse than the normally sucked! No one should ever be able to wear #5 ever again. Shuler, McRib, now Cundiff! Burn the #5 and never issue it again.

10 questions for Forbath.


Did he say his least favorite place to kick in was RFK?? it was too cold?

Listen to question #4 and please tell me I didn't hear that.

Welcome to the Redskins - this is really simple ...

kick the ball into the end zone (or through it) on kickoffs

make everything under 45 and a decent amount over 50

Seriously. You have a chance to be a freaking hero in this town every time you hit a 30 yard field goal. MAKE THE KICKS!!!

I don't think Gano has a chance of kicking for this franchise with these guys in charge

I liked him but it is definetly time to move on

this week I'm really big on Kai :D

On August 30th:

Kai Forbath 5 for 5 with 2-2 in the 40 - 49 range and 2-2 in the 50+ range.

He kicked one FG against us.

When he gets cut by the Bucs, Shanny would be wise to look into this guy.


I have been saying this guy should get a chance since the end of August. The big drawback with him, has been his KOs. Had trouble kicking it through the end zone. Hopefully, he has worked on that in the weeks since the preseason.

He will know how important the kickoffs are and if he wants to stay here he'd better show that he's been working on it
