Re: We need competition for Suisham

Well I must say that I hope that we're not in situations this season (like we were last season) when we kicked a lot of field goals and depended on them to win the game. With that being said, I do hope Suisham gets his act together and stop missing chip shots.

He nails a 46-yarder and this thread goes silent

I remember years back when the opposition would almost always start at the 35 because the kickoff landed at the 10.

You really need to consider this as a major factor

Umm, the thread went silent 4 days before your post.


I'm not watching the game, the olympics are on. But unless someone comes out and notices his leg got stronger, I still say we could have used competition.
(note- I say someone comes out to say it's stronger, cause I won't notice until week 1 since I think preseason is a complete waste of time for my attention.)

There was nothing new to add the last few days. But after last night's game, I was suprised (actually, not at all) that no one brought this thread back up to mention his 46-yarder.

I dont really care if he comes out and seriously kicks a 100 yard FG, I need consistency. Either be consistently BAD or consistently GOOD. If he cant make kicks with the game on the line and when it really counts, the F him.

But he did hit that 46 yarder last night. That almost makes up for the shank he pulled in the HoF game.

That's good to know. That's what I like to hear. This, hopefully, means he's gotten stronger in the offseason.

I didn't see it (obviously), did he barely make it, or did he clear it with plenty of room to spare? (ie: would make it from 52 or more for instance)

I do think that ALL OF US are wanting Suisham to succeed...our team needs it. If the man can start reaching the endzone on kickoffs, and can hit with room to spare on 50+ yard FG's, I'm happy. That's all i'm looking for. His FG% is good. Not extra special, but nothing to release him for either. My biggest beef with him is his leg strength...if that is somehow solved, I'm ecstatic!

Re: We need competition for Suisham

His leg looks much better so far. The 46 yard field goal cleared about 1/3 to half way up, and I've been shocked by the kickoffs. Most are going 2 to 5 yards into the endzone, much improved for Suisham!

Re: We need competition for Suisham

Suisham has power in his leg this year. My fear is that he will burn out before the season starts having to make every kick in every preseason game and practice.

He's only had 3 chances to kick and I think this season Suisham won't get on the field as much. He'll be fine
