And that earns him 12th place overall in the league. He's 27 for 30, 1 for 3 on 50+ yarders. Now compare that to the top kickers, like the two going to the Pro Bowl. Dawson is 28 for 29, but 6 for 6 on 50+ yard kicks. Walsh is 32 for 35 and 9 for 9 on 50+ yard efforts, with his longest being 56 yards, plus a pair of 55 yarders. The rest of the top 10 has similar numbers, and those guys are on a tier Suisham has yet to match. These past couple games when Ben took sacks on the other end of the 50, one of these guys in Suisham's place might have made a FG a possibility there. He's serviceable, but when we have cap room and a pick to spare, there are plenty of upgrades out there.
