non of the kicks he missed were easy , and hes a vet.. rather him then somer rookie from boonetown state


and the super bowl that was silly on the part of the coaching staff, everyone know he doesnt have the league for a kick that far.

Yeah he missed one against Baltimore in the playoffs. And the one in the regular season was the blowout against the Panthers.

As long as another dumb coaching decision doesn't force him into attempting a 53 yard FG, I think he'll be great. No one should get on him for that SB miss........if he could make kicks that far, some other team would've signed him long ago, and we got what we paid for......unlike some of our coaching.

listen im not saying he did bad last year, just saying the guys track record isnt something ANYONE should be confident about. this guy kicks a low ball and he chokes, plain and simple.

I was pretty skeptical of this guy when we initially signed him last season but I will give him his due - He was a pretty F'N solid kicker down the stretch- especially after putting up with Jeff Reed for the first half.

Can't hate on the guy for missing that bomb in the Super Bowl. He shouldn't have been out there in the first place and also that is just flat out of his range that was already known!

With that said - living in Philly I have been force fed my share of watching Cowboys and Redskins games when they play the Birds over the years. Suisham has been terrible in the past. He very well could go back to his old ways of shanking 23 yarders. Have someone else on speed dial.

Suisham played above expectations last year, but I have my doubts as to whether he can reproduce that this year. If not, he could end up being our Achilee's heal. Your thoughts...
Does he wavie at people returning kicks.....if not he is an upgrade over the buffoon let go Reed
