Not when your kicker can't boot it out of the endzone like 95 percent of the other kickers around the league.

Suisham's leg is equally as pathetic on the kickoffs.

He's had 2 kickoffs so far under the new rules. One went for a touchback and the other went 8 yards deep.

I think anyone who's watched the steelers for the last 20 years has to agree that the new kick off rule will help the steelers.

My god, how many games have we lost because of bad coverage units? holy cow.... I would dare to say we'd have another Lombardi if this rule was in place the last 10 years

Asking any offense to drive the field against our defense has always been a daunting task. Just look at the past few years... I would guess that half the TD's scored against us were on short fields. Either given by a turnover or poor ST's play.

Was one of them the one where the Skins KR ran it out for about 60 yards? I wasn't sure if that was Suisham or not.

Yeah, but can you blame the kicker for that? He pinned it 8 yards into the end zone. Under normal circumstances, that doesn't even get returned.

Guess not. But its frustrating seeing Billy Cundiff kick it through the uprights every chance he gets.

If I remember right, Antonio Brown had a few good KO returns against the Ravens last year. Ben starting from his 20 every go against that defense is going to be rough.
