Suisham
 
Really happy with today's outcome. Only real negatives. Ben's one INT that set up the Pats to get back into the game and Suisham's missed 42 yd field goal.

3 of 4 FG's is fine, but this guy makes me nervous. I don't have the confidence that he is going to make the big kick. A 42 yarder into the closed end with fairly good weather needs to be made. Especially when that kick can close out a big win.

Oh, and also. How is it that every other kicker in the league now kicks the ball 8 yards deep in the endzone and this guy still barely gets it to the goal line and duffs one out of bounds at the 10 after our first TD to set the Pats up at the 40.

Will this guy cost us a win this year? Thoughts?

He might, he kicked well last year, average this year. Average is okay I guess since there is nobody else out there right now and we usually don't kick a lot of field goals, but hopefully we find someone else next year.

Don't trust him. That's all.

right there with you on this one, i dont trust him at all and can see him costing us a game some time down the road, he's beens sketchy all year and seems to always choke when it matters most or when we can put a game away

I don't think he'll win any games for us .... but really kickers don't lose games for you too often. If it comes down to you needing a FG to win, it usually means there were plenty of other issues to also point the finger at.

I said it before on other threads and i'll say it again. Suisham is money his 1st year (last year) makes the majority but has big misses his second year. 3rd year cut. He is going to cost us at some point, almost happened today.

Agreed... I'd put it on the offense for not being able to punch it in rather than Suisham for keeping today's game close. He basically kicked what amounted to two PATs today (distance wise). That's where the offense needs to get 7, imho.

He's going to cost us at least one game this season, just hope it's not in the playoffs.

You got to remember it was being played at Heinz Field, the toughest stadium to kick FGs in.

Re: Suisham
 
he is an order of magnitude better than Reed, he actually gets involved in stopping Kick Offs from being run back, whikle Reed waived at people and sucked on field goals as well his last two years

now there are better kickers in the league but again he is way better than reed who now is unemployed
