View Full Version : No confidence in Suisham whatsoever

It's too late to go after another kicker now, realistically speaking, but if you don't have confidence in your kicker to atleast try it with 4 seconds left then why is he still on the roster?

Any other team would at least give him the chance to make it. If he misses it, time expires. If it's blocked you have to think you can make the tackle and not allow them a cheap score before halftime. Let's not kid ourselves, Suisham did not cost us the game but how you don't get him a chance and maybe you get lucky is something I can't quite grasp.

The clock management was suspect on that final drive before halftime as it is but that's another topic to dive into. Then the line can't block a 3 man rush to even give Ben time to throw a hail mary.

Then you let him kick a 51 yd.in the 3rd quarter and he makes it, just barely.

Follow that up with a 48 yd miss late in the 3rd, wide left.

We all knew this was going to happen this year. Suisham has been inconsistent at best over his career. We saw this coming in the post season last year and it's been an ulcer like episode every time he takes the field for anything over a 30 yd. FG. attempt.

I can see not letting Sushi try the 55 yarder before half time. However it didn't help matters changing personal with 35 seconds left and the clock running. Cuuld have run 2 or 3 more plays in the time they wasted.

I have to agree. I don't trust this guy to kick at all.

Horrible clock management at the end of the half, could have got closer to make it manageable. Even then, why didn't they just let Suisham try and kick the FG??? 4 secs left and a 55 yard FG that Suisham probably had a 20% chance of making....why not try anyways????? NOTHING TO LOSE!...if he misses it, who cares, half ends.......made no sense to me.

Can you imagine in the playoffs if we need Suisham to make like a 45 yard FG in the final seconds to tie/win the game for us? OMG, I would probably just close my eyes and then faint.

There was nothing to lose in going for the FG. Except we lose. And we DID. Dumb.

55 yds is a long FG, I get that, and in most circumstances you don't normally try that one unless the game is on the line or you just before halftime with only a couple seconds left.

The first situation wasn't in play but certainly the 2nd one was. If you have a kicker who can't kick it that far or a blocking line who you have no confidence in to keep the pass rush down so it's not blocked, then you have 2 issues that need to be addressed.

I just don't see why you don't give Suisham the chance to kick it, like I said maybe you get lucky and the game is tied going into halftime. You're telling me that you have more confidence in a 51 yd kick than a 55 yd kick? 4 yds is 4 yds I get that but the point is you left points on the board potentially.

The odds are in your favor to make that field goal vs scoring a TD on a hail mary or getting a pass interference call to give you 1 more down.

What funny is that Suisham only cleared the 51 yard field goal by maybe like one yard. Um..that's not a very good range in the standards of the NFL. If a kicker in the NFL misses a 55 yarders, generally it's to the left or right. His is going to be short.

suisham sucks. thats why hes been on 5 different teams. in the offseason, we need to find a kicker.

I said it earlier in the year: If there was a game where field goals would matter, the Steelers would be hosed. Suisham didn't lose the game, but I don't think he can come through in a pinch.

The clock management at the end of the half this season in numerous games especially last night was absolutely inexcusable and horrific on the part of Tomlin and his staff. Tomlin is terrible at knowing when and when not to call timeout in the last 2 minutes of the half. He always lets timeouts go to waste and it's getting old and tiresome pretty fast...

Beyond 40, it is a major crapshoot. It's sad. No faith in him whatsoever.

We need to draft the #1 kicker available this year.
With our offense we live and die with the field goals.

What is he from 30 - 40? I bet that's pretty laughable as well.

edit: 75% from 30 - 39 this year.

When did we ever trust him to kick at all. Im not eben comfortable him kicking a 24 yard FG.
