Ya they lucked out and won the game. Defense played solid for the second week in a row now and that was Mendenhall's best game of the season IMO, but I refuse to call this team a legit contender for the playoffs until I see them beat the Ravens

We are once again banged up and have lots of question marks after this one. All joking aside, it's entirely possible Harrison is suspended for next week. Would anyone be shocked by this? There were a lot holding calls today against us and I honestly believe half were legit. Either way, it's Raven's Week now and no excuses if we don't come to play next Sunday night.

Agree about beating the Ravens, but I'd even take just a complete football game against a quality opponent. The Bills played hard, but they are not the Pats, Ravens, or Falcons. At this point, a loss next week means at best a 5 seed in the playoffs and having to go to San Diego or perhaps Indy or New England.

In OT yes, but our defense have GOT to find a way to stop the short check down routes and slants or we'll get blasted by any team with any kind of passing game. It is way too easy to get those short throws against us, and Bills exploited it throughout the second half. Thank god for Polamalu having a good game today, or we would have lost this one.

Suisham is my player of the game. He was awesome for his first game (where he really had to do something). I would bet anything that if Reed was in there, he misses atleast one of those field goals in regulation and we lose. Suisham had a lot to prove, and he had some pretty large shoes to fill, and he came up big. :yellowthumb:

I'm totally sold on sushi now, Buffalo is not an easy place to kick. Was somewhat windy today but overall he was money and even booted a few into the endzone today.

Remember for those that want to bitch about his kickoffs, we don't hire FG kickers because they can kick into the endzone. He is paid to make FG's and he did today, and won in big part thanks to his leg.

Well we all wanted to see how he would do with field goals and he did good today. A nice comfort level going into Baltimore.

Don't know what game you watched D showed up for the first half then played not to lose in the second,20 yrd cushion leaving the middle of the field open the entire second half


Suisham was money today,

Glad to see Suisham have a good day.

um, the bills dropped a wide open TD pass...just saying...i wouldn't be too proud of them. they did their job after that, but they were fortunate to get that chance.

He was still a question mark after last week's win, but he proved himself today. He made everything he was given; great to see an asset at kicking again.

Good points, what I was thinking all game long, that short stuff killed Pittsburgh with the Pats and came damn near to killing them with the Bills.

That game was way closer than I thought it would or should be. Still, a win is a win. Not much seems to separate the good from the bad in these heady days of parity.

I guess I'll need to concede the fact the Steelers are better off with Suisham. He was banging them through all day long. Great job. But if it's a beer-chugging contest, I'm still going with Reed.:yellowthumb:

That was huge today for Suisham hitting all those kicks and going 4 for 4 from 40 yards plus each time including the game winner in OT. We now at least know about Suisham and how he can and will respond in key situations when big kicks with the game on the line need to be made. He answered the bell today in a big way and it's a great sign going into the Ravens game next Sunday when you gotta believe there is a better then average chance the Steelers are going to need his leg to win the game again...

Monday, Nov. 1, started like any other day for Shaun Suisham. He got up at his home in Greenville, Ohio, made sure things were cool with his wife, Erin, and baby daughter, Sienna, had a little breakfast and probably checked the newspaper to see which NFL kickers had missed field goals the day before.

Hey, it's what you do when you're unemployed and looking for a kicking job in the league.

Then, the telephone call came.

Suisham's mother-in-law, Gloria Croley, died of a massive heart attack that morning as she was getting ready to go to work. She had just turned 60 Oct. 24.

"It was hard to believe," Suisham said. "We had just had a big party for her."

It still hurts Suisham to talk about it.

"It's amazing what can happen in a month," he said. "I really didn't envision myself being here today with the Pittsburgh Steelers."

Certainly, not kicking four long field goals to beat the Buffalo Bills, 19-16, in overtime Sunday.

Wow, what a first impression!

"It's so awesome what he did," said Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda, who is the holder for Suisham's field-goal attempts.

"He's just happy to have another shot, happy to be back in the league. His energy and enthusiasm are unbelievable. He deserved this."

Suisham, signed Nov. 16 to replace the popular and, until this season, incredibly productive Jeff Reed, made his Steelers' debut against the Oakland Raiders Nov. 21, but did nothing more than kick off and make five extra points. The challenge was a bit bigger on this cold, windy day at Ralph Wilson Stadium in a game the Steelers had to have to hang with the Baltimore Ravens on top of the AFC North Division. Suisham made 45- and 46-yard field goals in the second quarter to give the Steelers a 13-0 halftime lead, hit a 48-yarder for a 16-13 lead in the fourth quarter, then was good from 41 yards in overtime.

You should have seen Suisham's new teammates swarm him after the game. Clearly, the Steelers knew how important this game was.

"Yeah, that was a lot of fun," Suisham said, grinning.

A deeply religious man, Suisham, 29, believes in God's will. He had been out of work all season and said he "was going to visit [retirement from the NFL]" after this season. Then, Reed missed a late 46-yard field goal at Cincinnati Nov. 8 that forced the Steelers to sweat out a 27-21 win. The next week, he missed from 26 yards in a loss to the New England Patriots. That prompted Steelers coach Mike Tomlin to make a change that had Pittsburgh buzzing for a week. Reed had been a splendid kicker for most of nine seasons and helped the team win two Super Bowls.

You might say Suisham had a big kicking shoe to fill.

"How could I [worry about that]?" he asked. "I mean, I wouldn't be any better for this football team if I worried about it.

"When I came in here in 2005 to [Steelers] training camp, Jeff was great to me. I've always remembered that and certainly appreciate it. But you just take the opportunities when you get them. To be with a new team and to come through for them is special."

Suisham was released by the Washington Redskins last December after missing a 23-yard field goal late in an overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints. He kicked for the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs but missed from 48 and 49 yards in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He wasn't re-signed by the Cowboys and had unsuccessful tryouts this summer with the Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams.

No, Suisham probably didn't envision being with the Steelers Sunday.

Did I mention he believes in God's will?

After the 2009 season, Suisham sold his house in Virginia and moved to Greenville so his wife could be close to her family. For a time, they lived with Harold and Gloria Croley before moving into their new house in March.

"In one way, I hated being out of work," Suisham said. "But in another way, it was a blessing. We ended up back in Ohio for a reason. My wife got to spend the most time with her mother since she was in high school. My daughter got to be around her grandparents. [Gloria] was such a great grandmother ...

"The way things worked out, I wouldn't change anything."

Nor would Tomlin.

"How 'bout Shaun banging field goals for us?" he gushed.

And how 'bout this for -- pardon the poor pun -- a kicker to the Suisham story?

"He's now," Tomlin said, "a Steeler."

I liked his reaction after kicking the game winner. Almost like it looked routine. At his press conference he seemed very humble. I like this guy already.

Weird how quickly things can change, isn't it? Two weeks ago Reed was kicking the field goals (or missing the field goals) and getting paid top dollar for it, and Suisham was sitting on his couch watching the games on TV. Now the roles are reversed. I think that's what he's so greatful for..or atleast it seemed that way.

Understand that the 48 yarder was a kick into the wind. That's even more impressive.

Yep, so far so good! We'll see, there is a very good chance we'll need his boot to win again Sunday...
