Default Re: Shaun Suisham on pace to break Steelers FG record

The fact of the matter is that Suisham is the most accurate kicker in team history. Make of it what you will, but as of right now, it's indisputable. With the team, Suisham has made 84.4% of his field goals, 73.3% from 40+ (22 out of 30: 20/26 40-49; 2-4 50+). Jeff Reed was 81.9% overall with a 62.3% accuracy from 40+ (48 out of 77: 40-62 40-49; 8-15 50+). Gary Anderson was 78.2% overall with a 61.8% accuracy from 40+ (94 out of 152: 86/125 from 40-49; 8-27 50+). In case you were wondering, Anderson was 215/234 within 39 yards, which is 91.9%. Reed was 129/141, which is 91.5%. Suisham is 32-34, which is 94.1%. For the sake of making this a bit neater:

============= 0-39 = 40-49 = 50+
..Gary Anderson: 91.9% 68.8% . 29.6%
............Jeff Reed: 91.5% 65.5% . 53.3%
Shaun Suisham: 94.1% 76.9% . 50%
