I do want to point out a couple of things on these two points in particular, here because I agreed with most of what you said...

That having been said - in regards to the 3rd and one at the goal - not going for the first down was probably one of the two most costliest plays of the entire game. It would have been his worst decision of the game, aside from your second point.

In regards to Suisham, I think you're being somewhat unfair in regards to his ability versus the reality of Heinz Field and that NO KICKER has kicked a successful FG from beyond 52 yards on that field, ever. Suisham can certainly kick farther than 45 yards - he's been pretty much perfect in ranges between 40 and 52 yards. But asking him to kick a career long FG - as well as the longest FG on Heinz Field by any kicker, period - well, I'd say that was a bit of a tall order.
Having a signature is overrated.
