Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

There is a reason he is not on a team.

Yeah, because his season ended already.

Well if he lives up to his hype then we have a steal. He has a few actual live games to get a customed to the NFL and for us to evaluate him prior to next season. Like I said already if he works out then maybe our PK spot is set for several yrs and all we have to worry about is OL, QB, RB, and LB.

Well, one is simply that teams in preseason are likely to go with who they know. That basically is why the Skins kept Suisham. Kickers rotate around the league until they find a home. I hope this guy pans out, if not, bring on the next leg.

Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

Had to be done in my opinion. I mean I've been very critical of Suisham over the years, have heard he's an awesome guy and really wish him nothing but the best as long as he's not playing against us... but this is a move that HAS to be made. Its time for people on this team to be held accountable for their poor play and I feel like too much on the Redskins, guys have spots handed to them when other guys are out performing them all over the place (I'm looking at you, Clinton Portis)... I just feel like there is no accountability sometimes... This is obviously just a fans perspective and really, what the hell do I know? In Suishams case, I've just seen the guy miss too many big feild goals for the Redskins, some of which I say directly led to the loss. Yeah other guys screwed up all over the place, but the Washington Redskins beat the New Orleans Saints last Sunday and the kicker blew it. Thats 100% on him in my book. Again, I wish the guy nothing but the best, but this is pro football, and you need to either be benched (or in a kickers case, cut) when you're not performing. Bottom line.

You miss an easy field goal you should be cut. If I cared about Suisham I would wish him luck but I don't,

I'm sure we'll be looking foreward to seeing him on Sunday in Oakland. I hope the guy pans out and can provide stability at a position that has become a revolving door for us the past several years.

Accountability - a word I keep coming back to. I was definitely in favor of this. You can't have a kicker who is unreliable with the game on the line, and Suisham has certainly missed more than he has made in big situations. Furthermore, I want to see Landry held accountable for abandoning his first assignment to protect against the quick strike TD (twice). I'm not saying cut the guy, but with his continued antics after every tackle, he clearly has a high opinion of himself relative to his real value to the team. I'm NOT saying cut Landry, but Rogers was benched for similar plays, so why not give Landry a time out to think about his role in this difficult season, and more importantly, becoming a better team player.

Re: Suisham released, Gano new kicker

Suisham makes me think of Scott Norwood...we will always remember him for the kick that cost us the chance to beat the unbeaten saints....and possibly a playoff chance (if we were to somehow finish 8-8)

Good luck to him, though....
