    Who's your Steelers Field Goal Kicker for 2011

    Suisham is recovering from an appendectomy and should be back for the 3rd preseason game. Swayze Waters kicked vs the Eagles and didn't appear to do himself any favors in trying to land the job.

    Waters was 1-3 last night, with 1 block and 1 miss. He did make a 30 yd. FG in the 3rd quarter to finish out the scoring for the Steelers. You can't really hold that block against him, that was a complete breakdown in protection with Samuel running free towards the ball. Still though that miss, when you're fighting for a wide open job against a veteran can be killer.

    Suisham. Waters has some strength, but I didn't like the short miss last night. Maybe it's just the jitters, though.

    Do you guys like Suisham? I cannot make up my mind one way or another on him. Really I just wish Reed hadn't lost it between the ears. He was the one guy who had figured out how to consistently kick at Heinz Field.

    Who all is out there to pick up anyway?

    What's not to like about Sweezy? He's humble, happy to be in Pittsburgh, and he was pretty reliable (up until the superbowl.) I don't want to take any more chances on other kickers.

    Last year Sushi was money during the regular season. He was kicking in Heinz Field like a pro. Him coming back would not be the worst thing in the world. Two things concern me about him though:

    1. He has a tendency to choke in big games during his career. I can't say I hold the Super Bowl missed FG against him. I honestly didn't expect him to make it. It was a long FG and under that type of pressure. I would have liked to see him atleast kick it in the general direction of the goal posts though.

    2. His kickoffs are not that long. He was kicking last week and a couple got returned if I remember right. Now he did just have an appendectomy this week so perhaps he was feeling the affects of that before hand, who knows.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Shayne Graham or Kris-miss Brown signed.

    Sushi will be OK. Waters' kickoffs were off the chart, but everyone kicks off well in August/September.

    If Suisham makes the team and can't kick the ball out of the endzone like everybody else then the Steelers need to have their heads examined.
