If your kicker is making tackles............

If you're using the words kicker and tackle in the same sentence in reference to your football team......................................

YOU"RE IN DEEP SHIT!!!!!

Reed was the perfect kicker for us. Putting the ball through the uprights is the ONLY thing that really matters when it comes to kickers. Sure you want deep kickoffs, but only an idiot would trade that for missed FGs. Reed was consistent at Heinz field. Who else has been?

Noo way I know some people didn't think he was the best person but i had full confidence in jeff reed every time he had a big kick lined up and he delivered just about all the time..he was most certainly not a loser id like to look up what is percentage on game winning/tying kicks for us was over tthe years

You Jeff Reed apologists seem to forget about the critical misses in the games the past couple years he was here. You can say he was money all you want but he was not money in his last two seasons. If he is still money, how come he can't stick with a new team? He was a jerk who couldn't kick consistently any more and couldn't tackle. Why did we know that? Because he kept giving returners a full head of steam because they would run forward to the 10 -15 yard line and be running full speed when they caught the ball. Our special teams unit could not get there in time and the last line of defense looked pathetic. Basically he sucked in all aspects of the game. That is why he got canned.

3 things I like about Suisham:

1. He's a class act. Very humble.
2. He can boot it out of the endzone due to new league rules.
3. He hustles down the field to make a tackle in the rare instance he doesn't boot it out of the endzone.

It's really hard to find a Janikowski/Scobee type kicker. Suisham is fine for now.

Reed was money until 09... Suishams not that great... But he has made a few stops on kick off, that I do respect...

His first SIX season were pretty good.
He was also on two SB winning teams during those six years and I'm pretty sure he had SOMETHING to do with that as well.

Ironically, his last SB team was in 2008 which coincides with the last of his six years of "money" kicking.

Because he isn't money anymore (everybody loses a step eventually).

You can say he sucks all you want but I was happy to have him here for eight years even if only six of them were his money years.
