ok, I won't but I think its far more plausible that the Skins blew the game, than that the NFL conspired to keep the Saints undefeated. again, its really just fans looking for any straw.

re: Better kickers available?

I mean really at this point, what sense does it make? Four meaningless games left, whatever. I think its more about sending a message. If this was the first time this guy failed in the clutch, I wouldnt be this upset about it... but didn't we cut Bret Conway in 2000 after he missed a big kikc against the Giants? I'm sorry, this is why kickers get paid, to make those kicks.

Totally Agree

Someone mentioned Gano, who is quite worth a look.

Suisham doesn't deserve to be here next year, go ahead and find out who might be; get a jump on it before someone who could work out is picked up by someone else in the off-season. If whoever we try out doesn't work, we're in the same spot, so no big deal.

Suisham couldn't be more untimely, though.
Yeah that's the big thing. I mean he's over 85% but his misses couldn't be at worse times.. they weren't longer than what you'd expect your kicker to make.. and they're coming in consecutive games. Suisham is to Redskins kicking in December as Romo is to Cowboys quarterbacking in December. One of these years when we do make the playoffs we're going to need a pretty surefire leg working for us.

I agree. Should've got rid of him after that playoff game in 07. When you miss kicks like he does not only does it take automatic points off the board but it's a huge momentum swing. And every big kick he misses it seems like the it just deflates the team. But no need to hate the guy. He didn't steal your girlfriend or anything. lol.

As far as Suisham, bad bad miss today, but he's in large part been very accurate all year. To knee jerk cut him wouldn't be smart.
Not trying to jack this thread but I'm so damn happy Alabama won. I'm so tired of the Tim Tebow love fest. The announcers are seriously gay for him. He got exposed Sat.

Graham was a stud kicker while at Florida State and he was also Florida States punter which could be an advantage to free up a space on the 53 man roster.

Some of his senior year stats in college are:

* As a senior Graham was awarded the nation's top honor for a placekicker when he won the Lou Groza Award and presented the trophy live on The Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show

* Graham 24 of 26 field goals in 2008 while leading the nation in field goals per game (2.18) and leading all kickers scoring 9.55 points a game with his only misses coming from 50 and 52, not 23 (Suisham).

* Made a school-record 18 straight field goals, tied for the national lead in field goals made (24) and led the country with five made kicks from at least 50 yards

* Duirng the last year of his career at Florida State, Graham was asked and slated to become the first player in school history to handle all of the kicking duties - consisting of punting, placements and kickoffs - for the 2008 season

* Named the top punter in the ACC by the Sporting News

* Has been Florida State's punter (42.1 yards per punt average) and handled all of the kickoff duties (39 touchbacks on 157 punts) in the last two seasons (2006 and 2007)

* And his final game as a Nole, Gano punted five times versus Wisconsin and put four inside the 20 yard line. His first three punts of the game in the first quarter all landed inside the three yard line.


The reason he was dropped by the Ravens is because they said his kick trajectory angle was too low and that his kicks would be batted down at the line of scrimmage.


I would definitely say he is an upgrade over SUISHAM.
