Suisham?

I understand completely there are bigger problems than our kicking game and a good win in Seattle even though both the O-line and D-line really have to step up in the next few weeks. However, what is going on with Suisham he was short on a 43 yarder today? He also was short on a field goal against Dallas. 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..

Re: Suisham?

His leg is kicked out from all the FG attempts because we can't get into the endzone. I'm kidding. It really is strange because he was kicking farther than he ever has the first few games. It's puzzling to say the least.

Re: Suisham?

Colder weather = ball doesn't travel as far?

In all reality I'm sure he'll be fine, if we capitalized better in the end zone we wouldn't even notice his rare misses

It didn't seem that cold in Seattle today. Plus Phil Dawson nailed a 55 yarder in cold weather last week. No excuse for being short on a 43 yard FG. I don't think I've ever seen that in the NFL.

Re: Suisham?

He kicked less this off-season to save some leg for the season, hence the better leg strength earlier this year. Now he is wearing down as apparently is norm al for him. Now why he missed a 43 yaredr short? I have no idea. Maybe it was just a miss hit.

Re: Suisham?

Clearly sand in the vagina makes it very difficult to follow through while kicking - from what my wife tells me it feels like... well like sand in the vagina.

Re: Suisham?

I've noticed it as well. Some good theories though. Wear and tear....but he is not kicking all that much. Cold weather....other kickers are doing fine and Squeaze is not. The only thing I can think of that sets the last year and this year apart is possibly the holder. I for one think a QB should be holding incase the ball is hiked wrong or they wish to throw in a gadget play. I don't like the fact that we are using a punter to hold the ball.

Re: Suisham?

So if were down by 2 points with 5 seconds left in the game at the opponents 27 yard line do we kick a 44 yarder or throw in the end zone for the win. I'm kiddind of course,
but thats how i feel about Suisham latetly.

Re: Suisham?

We recieved the ball so Seattle got to pick which side to defend. It is possible that the wind was against him while kicking in that direction. With a mixture of cold and not getting all of the ball, I can see him hitting the crossbar. Of course it is all theory, I do not know what really happened.

I am not worried though it's not like he is missing 20-40 yard field goals or extra points on a regular basis. In all honesty I fault the offense for not getting closer or scoring a touchdown. I will take the win and be happy...for now.

Re: Suisham?

Maybe he's in a slump, or maybe he has a pull or something, but he has definitely earned some forgiveness from the fans; he's been consistent enough to help the Skins win games, and he hasn't contributed in any losses. I am perfectly content with him.

Re: Suisham?

there really isnt an excuse for missing short on 40 something yard field goals in back to back weeks. a kick from 43 should never be short, from what i saw there wasnt even any wind

Re: Suisham?

I thought in the dallas game he had an excuse because of the wind,but 2 weeks in a row is very bad,theres no way he should be short on a 43 yarder,he's def got something wrong with him,lets hope he gets it straightened out

Re: Suisham?

The kicking game has killed us since Chip Lohmiller(sp)!! I'm always a nervous wreck everytime we line up for a FG regardless of the distance. This is something we need to go out and address in the offseason along with the D and O line!

Re: Suisham?

Seems like he's good for at least one odd kind of miss every week, but overall he's solid. We could do a lot worse.
