I don't get the commitment to a bad place kicker. Is the new extra point distance still in his range? Yeah, I get that he doesn't miss very often when he is in his range, but no NFL kicker misses very often from what Suisham's range is. The difference that the other kickers give the option of an attempt at distances that Suisham has 0 chance from.
