Matt Ammendola

This wasn’t simply another chance for Matt Ammendola to audition for the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals also hired him. For the record, we’re thrilled for him and everybody else who gets a shot at the professional football league. Ammendola deserves a lot of praise in any case because so few people can accomplish such a feat (none of us here writing about these things even come near). Having stated that, how the heck do you explain it?

The Kansas City Chiefs no longer employ Ammendola because he consistently missed field goals and extra points, making the coaching staff so uneasy that they resorted to using tricks and Tommy Townsend’s gunslinging arm in order to win games. The Chiefs’ lone loss of the season came in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, and his track record wasn’t great before he signed with K.C.

It’s worth noting that the Cardinals have only recently picked up on the “ex-Chiefs kicker” and are putting their faith in that label. Honestly, it’s hard to put ourselves in their shoes.

Until Ammendola, Kansas City had a reputation as an excellent area to find kickers. After departing the Chiefs, kicker Ryan Succop has been reliable for numerous seasons. There is still no one better than Cairo Santos in Chicago. As of right now, Harrison Butker is the head kicker, and he’s going to be fantastic for a long time.

Having Jan Stenerud in the Ring of Honor shows that the franchise values the specialty position, but Ammendola has no place in that tradition. The first quarter of the season was spoiled because of him; he was the aberration, the outlier, the rapidly replaceable glitch. There’s no way the Cardinals didn’t see what he did with the Chiefs, right?

Maybe the Cardinals want to win so badly that they’ll do everything to redeem themselves for their Week 1 loss to the Chiefs. And if Ammendola has figured out how to market his abilities without letting his time in K.C. detract from his chances, then more power to him.
