Tweets for Cundiff

"It's a kick I've kicked probably a thousand times out there.... 
I didn't convert and that's the way things go. There's really no excuse for it.... I think the disappointment is letting my teammates down."
- Billy Cundiff after missing a potential game tying 32 yard yard field goal attempt with 15 seconds remaining in the AFC Championship Game, which New England won 23-20 over Baltimore

Fellow kickers and punters weighed in with specialist empathy via twitter:

@LanningSpencer
Feel bad for #Cundiff... Kickers dream to be in that position. Quickly turns to a nightmare.

@jayfeely
That was a good snap and hold, just a tough miss for Cundiff. No worse feeling for a kicker. It will haunt him the rest of his life.

@Reggie_Hodges
Oh man!!! 10 sec on the play clock, rushed to get lined up, never got comfortable.. Feel for him

@KornblueKicking
Missed FG is on Cundiff's shoulders, but shows importance of total operation - snap, hold, & kick. Would've been good with a perfect hold.

@thomasmorstead
I feel so sick for Billy Cundiff....

@ChrisWarcraft
Poor Cundiff. He totally wiped the raid at 1% :/ #feelsterribletomissakicklikethat, #keepyourheadupBilly

@JoshScobee10
Wow- gotta feel for Billy Cundiff. Never fun to see anyone miss a kick, especially in that situation.

@PaulMcCallum4
Haven't seen the game but heard of the missed fg. Still amazes me how everyone blames the kicker??

@thekickingcoach
Feel bad for Billy Cundiff. Did not want to see that.

@GHartley5
timing looked a little off perhaps... I dunno Cundiff is a great kicker .... Unfortunately misses happen
