Live leg but he suffers from SHANKS....
Same guy imploded at SF.
We will rue the day we cut Cundiff.
Any one know if its possible to sign Cundiff later on when hes healthy?
I haerd something like we cant until week 6.
Can't remember if I read week 6 or week 10.
Ya, because Cundiff was the second coming of Jason Elam.
and I have not doubt Cortez is just keeping the spot warm
Wasnt he something like 37 for 40 under 40 yards? Probably not, but I remember it was good.
Now pull up Cortez stats and see who youd prefer.
........for Billy or?....
Cundiff was money inside 40.
I hope we resign him. Cortez Shanks will be epic as this season winds on.....
Week 10 before we can bring Cundiff back
I agree. I have a feeling Bill told him to rehab, take your time, and if your 100% well bring you back in. I can jsut see Billy agreeing, maybe feeling pressure to make Bill happy.
cortez could indeed sink the ship.
but, cundiff could be back.
or, another kicker who will be released.
I agree! I already had that concern with Billy, but that concern doubles with Cortez.
I am just hoping a good kicker becomes available after the final cut downs, and we go get him, whoever that is.
Guys he just missed one kick witch was hurried by the way and all of you are already throwng in the towel?.
So if T Newman has another bad game are you guys gonna start saying he's back to his unconfident ways?.
Just let the kid play and if he doesnt perform then I'm sure BP will do something about it.Until then just relax, with the comments about the season being over.
Theres a reason he hasnt been on a team for... 2 years (?)
I do like the touch backs though.
Cortez scares me. I saw him play several times and he will not make kicks when it really matters. Cundiff at least hit his game winners.
Cundiff will be back if he is not snatched up and we will be trying some people out all year.
Time to stop living in the past. Same could be said about all the kickers in this league.
Agreed. We have to give the guy a chance. But mostly because we don't have a choice. Short leash.
I'm a history buff.
I live in the past - its a great predictor of the future. To fail to learn from the past dooms you to repeat the same mistakes.
History buff or not. Ever heard of a change of scenery when it comes to football? Happens to a lot if ya ask me.
Not saying you are wrong. But Cortez has done nothing wrong up to this point. He definitely seems to have a stronger leg, and seems more accurate. Time will tell though.
Kickers sometimes take awhile to develope. The thing that makes or breaks a kicker is consistency, and it takes awhile to develope the habits that make you consistent.
Cortez stunk it up pretty bad in SF, which is why he was cut. David Akers was once cut too, by the Redskins.
Do you have a good ST/kicking coach? Do you trust his ability to coach up Cortez?
