Default Re: Suishams attitude .

His attitude was the first thing I took notice of - 1st impressions are important. I'm sure the front office took notice of it, too and, while his kicking may have impressed them as well, his attitude probably had a lot to do with why they ultimately decided to give the kid a chance.

And I totally. Towards the end, Reed was taking his position for granted. And there seemed to be a direct correlation between the amount of money Reed thought he deserved vs his actual level of play. I firmly believe that his decline was not so much a result of his age or physical decay, but rather his mind. Fueled by narcissism, I think his drive for money got the best of him. After spending the off-season complaining about his contract and (unbelievably) a Steelers organization that had gone out of its way to keep him (as a franchise kicker no less). Driven by this sense of entitlement and blinded by ego, I think Reed must have truly believed he was the best the Steelers could ever hope for and that his job was as secure as Tom Brady's.

It's funny sometimes how quickly things can change. Jeff's delusions of grandeur were badly exposed and his cringe-worthy excuses were the final blow. By comparison, Suisham is such a breath of fresh air. His accuracy has been exceptional (so far), but beyond that, it's nice to see a kicker who values his job. He's confident without being egotistical. And he just seems like an all around nice guy.

i won't nitpick on his kickoffs too much, did you see jeff reed earlier today? announcers were like 'oh god' when he kicked off. i think he might have kicked off past the 20 yard line like once the entire game. He was a big reason why green bay constantly had good field position, one kickoff, the returner returned it on his own 35 yard line, and returned it to midfield making not much of a return. Might as well kick the freakin ball out of bounds so the worst you guy is the opp. 40. Reed is SHIT and I'm glad he's gone.

Suisham is a happy man, we can tell it for sure . We can see it in his face. He is smiling, he enjoys to be there. Good to see.

He certainly isn't doing any worse than Reed in that compartment. The thing that bothered me most about Reed wasn't the missed FG's, the bad attitude, the poor tackling, or the pathetic on-side kick attempts......it was his consistent short kick-offs.
I've taken note on Suisham and his aren't any worse....in fact, they've been a tad better.
I'll take it.

Reed was/is a nutjob.

Suisham's performance also makes me wonder how often Reed was the source of the "It's so hard to kick in Hines field" stories that we kept being bombarded with.

Agreed for two years............I called for Reed to be cut last year
