I'd like to believe that we could do a lot better too. I wouldn't draft a kicker, because that is very hit or miss, but bring somebody to camp to push Suisham. Competition is good.

Re: Suisham?

I'm not happy with Suisham. The official story seems to be that he had trouble kicking in the direction of one part of the stadium where the wind is tricky. Don't think I buy that one. I don't see how his leg could be tired already. You can't count on him to hit anything behind 40 yards now and his kickoffs were dreadful yesterday. Maybe he's injured and hasn't told anyone because he doesn't want to miss any time. In any case, this is a position in need of an upgrade during the offseason. Hopefully, he won't cost us a game before then.

Re: Suisham?

One of the other sites, some one stated that the ball was tipped. Unjure if its true but could be a good explanation. I for one hope that this is the only reason for the one this week.

Re: Suisham?

The one kick off he got deep the Sea's had their best return. It almost seems we get better coverage on his shorter kicks.

Re: Suisham?

Yep.. well its still troublesome but Matty is right he has been solid i wont argure that and i think we have more to worry about than Suisham but I just was picking up on the fact that the first few games of the season i was shocked on how far he was kicking it on kick offs and now its back to the same ol short kick to the 10 or 15. But lets hope he gets it straightened out. And for an NFL kicker being short from the low 40's is unexceptable. Your getting paid to kick and do nothing else. You go to practice all week and you don't hit or memorize plays except maybe a trick play.. you do what.. you kick haha. Enough said he needs to be better no more cross bar hits.

Re: Suisham?

My man and his boys had this same conversation during the game. They think we need a new kicker. Billy (my man) was the all star kicker in high school. Based on his knowledge, his opinions, and my own two eyes...I have to agree.

Re: Suisham?

Here is my problem with Shuisham, seems the deeper we get int he season, the weaker he becomes. His kick offs are getting rather weak and unimpressive. Wasn't one kicked to the 20 yesterday???

At the beginning of the season he was booting nice kickoffs and now I'm seeing shorter and shorter kickoffs by him. I'm sure you guys have all noticed naturally but wow short on a 43 yarder as a professional kicker? Not to promising..
I agree completely. A pro kicker should NEVER be short on a 43 yard kick! I don't care if it's 50 below zero outside. I am not calling for his job but he needs to do better. He's very inconsistent...you never know what's going to come off that foot.

Re: Suisham?

Yeah I don't think he's the answer.

We need to have competition, but there's no other alternative out there right now. Too bad, because there were some guys available this past free agency.

Re: Suisham?

This year is worse then past. I think it's the holder. Someone also wrote on another board that the ball came out wrong and hit the dirt on one of the field goals. Now I hear possibly tipped. who knows. I'm just tired of a break down by a different player every possession. If not every play...ie, the Pitt game.

Yeah but, what about the short kickoffs lately. I think the short kickoffs are attributing to the poor kick off coverage. The last few games Shuisham has struggled getting the ball passed the 10 yard line.
