Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Good luck with that.


A drunk Jeff Reed would be better than Suisham. Reed has struggled, but if they think Suisham will be better...they have not seen anything yet.

New Steelers Kicker Gets Right To Work

Shaun Suisham Practices For First Time After Replacing Jeff Reed







PITTSBURGH -- Newly signed kicker Shaun Suisham joined his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates at Wednesday's practice, as they prepare for the upcoming home game against Oakland on Sunday.

Suisham's last NFL appearance was in a Jan. 17 playoff game last season.

He's expected to quickly fill some big shoes with the departure of the Steelers' second-leading all-time scorer, Jeff Reed, who was cut Tuesday.

Related - Jeff Reed Getting Calls, Waiting To Clear Waivers Channel 4 Action Sports' John Meyer reported that Suisham has had his own bumps on the way back to the NFL.

Suisham was not resigned by the Dallas Cowboys when his contract expired after last season, and he moved to Greenville, Ohio, with his wife's family.

Suisham said on Wednesday that his mother-in-law died about 2 1/2 weeks ago, so he's thankful for his recent time spent away from football.

Suisham last kicked at Heinz Field during a workout in 2005. He has prior cold-weather experience with the Washington Redskins.

He has had an up-and-down career, starting with Dallas in 2005 and getting cut midway through 2006, then catching on with Washington, where he stayed until being cut in December, then bouncing back to Dallas for the rest of the 2009 season.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

I really figured the Steelers were smarter than this, because they usually do their homework on players....

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Reed is just another idiot kicker.

Suisham is obviously not the long term answer, but I think they just had it with Reed's mouth and his misses this year.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Suisham is eventually going to find a home. He's like a lot of young kickers that get kicked around the league early in their careers. Could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble had we kept David Ackers.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Reed has been pretty bad, plus he's a moron. Shanks a 20-something yarder and then starts complaining about the turf and fans, etc etc.

I don't really see how Suisham will be any worse.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

I laughed my ass off when my steeler fan coworkers told me they signed him. I said anything over 30 yards is like roulette. Anything over 40 is just not f'ing happening.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

All jokes aside, Suisham will probably be like every other player we have let go...he will find his role on the team, become a valuable contributor, all the while gaining MVP honors and probably making a bunch of Pro Bowls.

That's sarcasm. It wont happen probably with Suisham, but it sure has happened to alot of other players that has went through here...

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Suisham can get on some hot streaks. He did really well and then fell apart after a while. I wouldn't put it past him to have a strong beginning but sloppy ending, def if they make the playoffs.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Suisham has hit 79.4% of his field goal attempts in his career - - assuming the batteries in my calculator are still working.

Re: Steelers cut Reed, sign SUISHAM

Who knows, SS's wild right/left kicks may catch ahold of their wind patterns and split the uprights everytime b/c Ive seen kicks missed with zero wind before and they were short kicks too.

Problem is...he implodes in latter part of the season...which is beginning right now.

What's his percentage on 23-yard game winners?
