Its because he also missed his last kick of the season last year from like 20yrds out vs. Seattle (which im sure Zorn remembers). But you are absolutely right, no way can you have 2 punters and and 2 kickers taking up space. Maybe if the Brooks Frost story ends early well see something.

There's a big GT fan I work with and he says Travis Bell was awsome too. When reading about Brooks you hear his name, as the 2 formed the best kicking duo in college. Maybe well give him a look if Durant can end this thing early.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

I wouldn't be surprised if Frost is cut very soon. I think Zorn wanted to see Brooks kick in an actual game to make sure he didn't freeze up and he was obviously fine the other night. He was booming them in pre-game warmups too.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

If Suish misses one or two more, we'll see them bring in some competition, IMO. But as of yet, there's not enough data. He was good for us last year, but that miss in Seattle hurt, and kicking is a very mental thing. So he's got to show he's back to the level.

Hopefully, he'll get on track and this will be a non-issue.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

I like Suisham alot. But, let's face it, he is not in any way in the upper tier of NFL kickers. That is precisely why I was kind of surprised he came into camp with no competition.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

When Suisham keeps missing chip shots in preseason then you bring in competition, but its way too early to start bringing in people to compete with Suisham.

Why? Everyone else on the roster has competition.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

29/35 for the year and he only missed 1 kick in the HOF game. Yeah it was a chip shot but who else would you get to compete with?

How about someone that has the leg to kick a FG from 50 or more. (0 50+ attempts last year, and only 1 fg from 50+ in his short career)

Re: We need competition for Suisham

Ok so where's this competition supposed to come from?

And I don't want to hear Vanderjagt.

Seriously????? There was just a bunch of college kickers not drafted across the country, and there was a bunch last year too, and the year before etc....are you seriously saying that there are no kickers out there???

Last I checked, we are not experts on kickers...nor are we scouts...but last I checked, the Redskins employs alot of scouts...ask them where we could find a few. Anyone will work. No one is saying to get a hall of famer to compete, just competition. Competition has never been a bad thing...ever.

I think Frost may be on his way out, it would be a good time to bring in a kicker to make Suisham shape up. We can't have our kicker miss chip shots, and last season that FG that Suisham missed could have changed the game. Maybe give him another shot...but if he misses another get some competition. I mean how much of a non-pressure situation was that field goal he missed during the HOF game?

Re: We need competition for Suisham

Suisham is fine I just wish we could get someone to drive the kickoffs into the end zone consistently. Too many of his balls last year only made it to the 10 yard line.

C'mon now don't cop out.

Who's out there that could potentially come in and take the job?? Because with such a limited roster now you can't afford to just have competitions for the heck of it.

I have no clue...I don't pay attention to kickers, and I have mentioned in previous posts, I don't follow college football very hard...but I am sure there are several here that could know some out of work kicker from college with a booming leg.
Besides, it's kinda too late now. They should have had competition when camp started. How can you bring in a guy now? (unless of course the guy starts to suck uncontrollably.) We missed the window. Suisham really needed some competition.

We didn't have room. Hard to understand? Matty has stated it twice as well as others and you ignored it. Put it this way. Who should we have cut at the begining of camp to make space for a mock competition?
