There is much out there.

However, I sure hope we are not planning on riding Suisham. I watched last years SB last night on ESPN in part. Caught the kick. Painful.. Not to mention this years stuff, and even this years non attempts due to range.

Rackers would be nice, but pricey. Not sure who else is viable on the list.

Kapinos should be lept as he is way cheaper, and kicks just about right into our coverage. Use the savings for a kicker with range.


Punters:

Mat McBriar (DAL)
Matt Turk (JAC)
Daniel Sepulveda (PIT)
Donnie Jones (STL)


Kickers:

Jay Feely (ARZ)
Rian Lindell (BUF)
Mike Nugent (CIN)
Phil Dawson (CLE)
Neil Rackers (HOU)
Josh Scobee (JAC)
Nick Folk (NYJ)
Connor Barth (TB)
Ryan Succop (KC) - Restricted
Graham Gano (WAS) - Restricted

Yeah Suisham is pretty bad. He misses A LOT of kicks that are short for nfl kickers and his range is so short that we often punt between the 35-40. Of course a 45+ yard FG isnt a garuantee, but attempting it with a capable kicker is a hell of a lot better than punting.

Hold a tryout in the cold and rain, see how they kick with some wind. Heinz is not an easy place to kick

Id take him over our retard...


For real I would like to for once have a guy that can kick it out the endzone... even when we have good kickers they have no leg... It would be nice to never have to worry about a return... I still get nervous when we kick off but not near as bad as I use to when the ball was spotted on the 30... anyway... I want someone with some leg man maybe even hit a 50 yarder from time to time:drool:

We picked up Suisham because he was one of the few available during the time Jeff Reed did a 180 from good kicker to game "coster".

I wish we could get Succop from KC..


The guy is clutch and got plenty of practice with the Chiefs kicking FG's last year, haha.

Is there any kickers in the draft worth looking for?

I have forgotten what game it was when we got a delay of game penalty on a FG try and later Mike Tomlin said the reason that happened is b/c there were trying to decide whether to go for it or not.

All have to say is, if you have to take that kind of time thinking if your kicker can make a 40 + yard fg, then you need another kicker.

Steelers should get the kid from Oklahoma State. New blood needed. I wanted David Akers last year, unfortuantly, niners got him.

Our special teams for the most part played great with suishams kick offs considering we pay him the cheapest we possibly can, lol.

But Akers wouldve been great to have, but he was probably priced out of our range.

Kickers should be cheap, they only get in the game to kick and have some contact once in a while.

Unless your the Patriots and they win every reasonable and important game. As tough as they we're in Super Bowl's, it was always the kickers saving there asses :chuckle:

We need to upgrade PK, Sweesh is too unreliable with a limited range

SWEESUM. He's too unreliable. We need to invest in a new kicker.
