I clearly blame the loss on Suisham.

There were opportunities beyond that, but that missed FG really screwed us!

THANK YOU!!!

No, he didn't throw 2 ints. Hell, if he did, they would have been evened out by the two int's Landry got tonight. RIGHT? LOL

Don't get me wrong, I think the biggest reason we lost this game was our O line play.

But for me, the game swung, despite our bad O line play, when Suishank missed that kick. A four point lead at that point would have, I think, led to a win for us...

Re: Suisham = Momentum Killer

suisham should have nailed the fg yes, but man our offense got the ball on like the 12 and we couldnt get it in, or even get a first down. thats not gonna win u playoff road games period.

Re: Suisham = Momentum Killer

If we had scored a TD, forget about it game over. But yeah I agree, the missed FG took the wind out of our sails and you could see that the Seahawks knew they just dodged a serious bullet and they went there and took advantage. Great job by them for seizing the moment.

Yep...good for them for siezing the moment.

We should have put them away, but we didn't. PERIOD!

Man, next year is going to be even more brutal...Guarantee it!

Re: Suisham = Momentum Killer

Suisham is a bit of a paradox. He seems to be great when we don't expect it, while missing the one we believe to be chipshots. He has missed quite a few of these short little dinks (and a PAT, for goodness sakes!) while nailing 40+ yarders in 150mph winds in the Meadowlands and in downpours at FedEx last week.

Who knows, maybe he becomes a consistent, all-pro kicker, but he sure makes me beat my head into walls right now.

SUCKS but w/e..
I said the exact same thing the moment he missed. While Suisham made some big kicks, I never fully trusted him. From 30 yards in, you MUST be automatic.

It's too bad it came to that kick anyway - Cooley dropped a very well thrown ball that should have given us 1st and goal at the 3.

Isn't that the story of our season? We had a chance to win almost every game we were in except the pats game. Had we been a team that seized the opportunities given to us, we'd have been 15-1. Oh well.
Seattle outplayed us, and again I tip my hat.

That has been a huge recurring story for this team before blowing teams away during the 4 game run. How many times did the Skins fail to extend leads and eventually lose? I've been saying all year that we need a bigger WR for red zone passing packages. Perhaps Mix will be that guy someday.

It's just hard to find a solid college kicker. No matter how we look at it, we'll be taking a chance. Remember when Janikowski was supposed to be the best kicker EVER? He misses more than normal. Point is, good reliable kickers are not that easy to find.

I am hoping that too...every time I see him I keep saying he needs to be given a chance. I said it again after he picked up the ball and took it into the endzone today. I think we have a diamond in the rough right now.

Re: Suisham = Momentum Killer

Yeah, picking a money-kicker is near impossible.

Back to the point, though - the missed FG may have been the final straw, but it's not even remotely correct to blame the final straw for everything that happened before it. Even ignoring the first 2.5 quarters, we could have done a lot more with that drive, but we didn't. There is plenty of blame to go around. Of course, Gibbs will squash that talk.
