    Cundiff missed the kick because he was distracted or because of his kicking consultant

    CSNNE.com STAFF REPORT

    Billy Cundiff was apparently distracted on the sideline before his fourth-quarter field goal attempt. 

    According to TMZ.com, two Ravens players said that Cundiff was being yelled at by coaches immediately prior to missing the 32-yard kick that essentially ended Baltimore's season.

    One Ravens player said he witnessed the confrontation. The other did not witness it but says it was widely discussed among Ravens players.

    According to the story, right before Cundiff took the field, he was practicing kicks on the sidelines. But as the Ravens got within field goal range, Cundiff never approached the field signaling that he was ready to go in. 

    TMZ reports that coaches repeatedly called for Cundiff "at least six times" and the kicker did not respond. 

    TMZ's sources with the Ravens say that the locker room, players and coaches alike, believe that Cundiff was not ready to kick. That begs the question, though, why didn't Baltimore's coaches call a timeout? The Ravens ended the game with one unused timeout. 

    Cundiff's teammates didn't give him trouble after the miss, saying, "We didn't give him a hard time because he looked like he was ready to kill himself."

    I thought he missed it because I put my hex on him.  I only break it out for special occassions and it almost never fails.  It's more effective on field goals than on passes.

    I almost got him on the prior attempt, but I started it late and wasn't able to push the ball far enough to the right.  But I got him on last attempt.

    How about BB deciding not to call the timeout and Ice the Kicker. Imagine how that would have been had he missed the first kick and then got another chance. I saw that happen a couple of times this year.

    Yeah, I heard he was late to even get onto the field to set up. Another example of things you never hear happening to NE due to BB's obsession with preparation and detail. Edge, BB.

    I just watched it again because I heard this on talk radio today, and being at the game I didn't realize that he came on the field with 13 seconds left on the play clock, the holder never gets the laces turned around, and he kicked it with 1 second left. And they went home with a time out!  Why? To me this is on Harbaugh more than Cundiff.

    I wonder if BB saw the clock and elected not to try and ice him? Either way, it just makes you appreciate the HC of the NE Pats even more!

    Actually I thought it got deflected by Big Vince's finger nail. I may be wrong, did anyone else see that??? LOL

    Brian Mitchell (former Redskin/Eagle), who I heard today being interviewed in the DC area, called BB brilliant for not calling a time out to ice Cundiff.  He said, BB did notice the time on the play clock running down as the kicker and FG team were coming on to the field and he knew they would have to "rush" the kick, hence he decided not to call time out!

    I caught a report that poor Billy Iff (he was a pro bowler last year, but the guy suddenly has a monkey on his back bigger than Bill Buckner now) rushed onto the field and didn't set himself up in the right spot.  He was positioned too far back.  His approach to the ball probably affected where his plant foot arrived, and his aim.

    You could tell it felt rushed watching it live.  No idea why they didn't use the timeout and get organized.

    Re: Cundiff missed the kick because he was distracted..........

    One of those rare moments in NFL football where you just know it ain't going in.  Weird feeling, but honest.  The whole thing reeked of weird, bad timing, like the Ravens were shocked that they got shut out of the endzone twice.  That's exactly how they handled that whole debacle; ill-prepared and shocked.  The look on Flacco's face after they failed to get in the endzone was priceless.  Lee Evans, too.

    If any of that report is true, that Cundiff was being yelled at to get in the game, then for some reason he choked before he even got on the field.  They make it sound like he was hoping to not be used in that situation.

    Classic King...lol...you HEARD? Here I'm thinking you watch Patriot games...lol...

    You're commenting on something you didn't even see King? Really?

    Either taking the delay of game penalty or calling the timeout WAS an option that Baltimore did NOT take advantage of.

    Cundiff WAS late on the field.
    Cundiff WAS rushed.
    Cundiff WAS not in his normal position relative to the ball, for a kick at that range.

    Cundiff IS an ALL PRO kicker.

    Dude, BB has made some bonehead ill-prepared decisions around clock management and crunch time decisions in his years for sure...things happen in the heat of a game. BB is good and John Harbaugh has to answer for what happened.
