Consistent Kicking...

Does anyone else get that feeling of, "yeah he will make it", when ever S. Suisham goes out for a field goal? I mean, he is by far not the best kicker in the NFL, but from what the Redskins are used to, he isnt that bad. Since coming on board with the Redskins he is 7-8 and his miss was over 50 yards. He was 3-3 against the Saints, and lets be honest would we have won today if Novak was still our kicker???

Is John Hall coming back next year? I hope that we seriously consider Suisham for next year atleast give him a chance in training camp...

I'm liking what I'm seeing of Suisham so far.

Re: Consistent Kicking...

Actually I keep waiting for the other shoe to to drop. I don't think he really is nearly as good as he has shown. I hope I am wrong but with the state of our kicking game for near a decade now I doubt I will ever trust a kicker again.

seriously. Every time our kicking team comes out onto the field, i keep getting this "I won't be suprised if he misses this one" feeling. The way our kicking game has been the past few years, I'm not sure i'll ever trust another kicker either.

Re: Consistent Kicking...

I think we can all agree, we may have found the answer to our kicking woes.

I'm not sure I would say that, but I can say that I am very happy with the way Suisham has kicked so far. If he can keep it up, he should come into camp next year as the guy to beat.

Re: Consistent Kicking...

So far Suisham has been nice, but he's not under lots of pressure right now. How he performs when he has to make a kick to win a game with playoff implications will be a more telling tale.

Certainly give him a chance next year, but I'd be looking to bring in an accomplished veteran anyway.

my sentiments exactly. Suisham has been great thus far, but because of the woes we've had, I'm waiting for him to miss 2 chip shots. I'd like to see him kick against competition in Training Camp next year and see how well he does under pressure.

I think John Hall is gone - he is going to make $2 million next year and that is a lot of money for a kicker who has not been healthy for the last couple of years. Plus his releasing fee is only $500k so this will help the cap next year by cutting him.

Suisham has done a fine job. I'm quite sure the Skins are not paying him that much. Keep him and dump Hall to save some money.

Re: Consistent Kicking...

On field goals...he looks great.

On kickoffs, he needs work. Putting a kickoff on the sideline and letting a high-powered offense start at the 40 when they need every yard they can get is horrible.

Not to mention that all the other kickoffs were short. Suisham has been a very capable addition, but I'd like to see us get a kicker with a big leg, such as Josh Brown of Seattle. Brown has 4 game winning FGs this season alone. He gets his kickoffs consistently near the goal line and his FG range is about 55 yards. Everything Hall was supposed to be prior to his leg injuries.

Re: Consistent Kicking...

thats funny about the shorter kickoffs, because when he was with the cowboys, that was all he did. i am very happy with him. and no way to bringing back hall, too much money, and too hurt

Yeah Buster he seems to kick it consistently around the 10 yard line and not the goaline, hopefully he can get more on it somehow. But as of now he is doing quite well, and better than our homeboy Novak.

Bring in some competition in the offseason to see if you can get the best outta him.
