Re: We need competition for Suisham

Maybe we could sign J.Feley to compete with him. For the vet min of course.

ESPN - Dolphins cut injured Feely, a year after he set team record - NFL

That may not be a bad idea. For some reason i just don't trust Suisham in pressure situations. Feely is coming off on of his best years. He won't be w/ out a job very long.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

Some team is going to give him a contract which will make it impossable for us to bring him in for kicking comp. with Suisham.

We agree on most everything here, and you make valid points. What I will disagree with is the kickoffs. We will kickoff approx 4-6 times a game. If someone is 10 yards shorter than another, that is giving up 40-60 yards per game. I think those yards are important.

All in all, I feel like we agree on most cases.
Thats not always true. If a kicker hits higher shorter kicks they have a little more hang time for coverage to get down field so what maybe lost in distance the coverage team makes up with shorter returns.

You're speaking in theory cause we all know that wasn't suisham. If he has the leg to kick it high and short, then he has the leg to kick it long too. Last year he did neither.

If he gets burned out from kicking in the preseason we seriously need a new kicker.

100% agree. Any kicker that gets burnt out in the preseason is useless and weak. That's what they do for a living, if they can't handle the preseason, how will they handle the regular season and postseason?

The way he's reaching the endzone and appears to have a longer leg, maybe he worked out harder in the offseason to be more valuable to us. (thus the no competition brought in) At this point, I am mildly satisfied that he has developed more power, which is what I was seeking from our kicker.

Yeah, I meant to tell you about that since I know you don't like the preseason very much. He hit a mid 40 yarder with ease and most of his kickoffs are getting to the end zone. No touchbacks that I've seen (I don't think) but they're getting in there.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

It's not just kicking in pre-season it's making every kick in training camp.

It still doesn't make much sense.

He's going to have to make all the kicks during the season and in practice as well. Should we worry about that too?

There are plenty of kickers around the league that handle all the kicking duties in the preseason.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

That 46 yarder was good from 60. He is definitely born again hard. I may even allow him to be the kicker for my beloved Redskins.

Re: We need competition for Suisham

the guys a specialist. he has been kicking just about his whole life. i think people would be surprised at how little he kicks during the week. and he also knows if his leg does get tired, someone else is waiting for his job. he has done fine, so far. lets look elsewhere for a bitch session
