Ever since Billy Cundiff missed the biggest kick of his career with the Baltimore Ravens in the 2011 AFC championship game against the New England Patriots, he has struggled to keep a job in the NFL.

Entering the 2012 season, Cundiff battled with current Ravens’ kicker Justin Tucker, and lost. Cundiff signed with the Washington Redskins shortly after for five games, and missed five field goals in that time which ultimately led to his release.

After those sequences of events, Cundiff would then sign on with the San Francisco 49ers as the 2012 regular season ended, and was waived before the Super Bowl.

It’s amazing how one play can shape someone’s career. It was always speculated during the AFC championship game that Cundiff was rushed on to the field without his typical preparation, failing to go through his usual routines.

Might the Ravens have gone on to be Super Bowl champions a year earlier?

Who Knows?

It’s easy to feel sorry for Cundiff but then again it’s hard to forget these parting words, reflecting upon his release and past contributions.

“I feel like if that’s not good enough, I’ll take my services elsewhere to be perfectly honest”, Cundiff lamented. “I feel like it’s a really solid track record and I’m not here to deal with hypotheticals .”

With that attitude, saying goodbye wasn’t all that difficult.

Having said that Cundiff is currently at his next, and possibly final spot on an NFL roster with the Cleveland Browns, as the team enters M&T Bank Stadium today.

If he can’t make it work with Cleveland, he’s probably done.

Will Cundiff be greeted by boos at The Bank?

Probably.

And Ravens’ fans certainly have right!

Will you boo when Billy Cundiff takes the field today as a Cleveland Brown?

Cundiff was Harbaughs choice , just one more of his terrible decisions like Chris Carr , D. Foxworth , Dwight Evans , Donte Stalworth , Tavares Gooden , Davis Reed,,,,the list goes on and on,,,,,,,,,,,Harbaugh has been lucky he had great veterans to cover all his mis-steps,,,,lets's see how he does now................
