    Default How about that Shaun Suisham!!!

    a very impressive game for Shaun Suisham, our new kicker.

    4/4 in FGs from 45,46, 47 and then the game-winner in OT from 41 yards.

    maybe we found the right kicker after all...Jeff Who?

    Had Reed been here on the team, we would have lost this game. Shazam just might be the guy we have been waiting for all along.

    Game ball goes to him without question IMO.... He didn't see the field for any FGs last week, so this was his debut.... And a very good one it was.....

    The second game ball should go to that dude on the Bills that dropped a sure TD pass in OT.

    Nah... He's not Superman, and he was on the street for a reason... But if he's "serviceable" and gets the job done, then he's a good pick-up.... He had a good game today, but there will inevitably be a game where he doesn't come thru for us... We all just need to keep the "highs and lows" in perspective since we got alot of football left to be played this season.... Just my 2 cents....

    Ny and SC you guys are both right. We lose this game had Johnson caught the ball. Shazam has been out of football for how long and look what he does the first time he is called into field goal duty. IMPRESIVE !

    If your going to wait for him to fail, it will happen. Everyone has a bad game. Reed was on the skids when we dumped him and we needed new life. Shazam may have been playing out of his normal skill level but then again, Jeff Reed was on the street too when the Steelers found him.

    Point taken..... You're right..... I just dread the day when he doesn't produce and the fickle fans start bashing..... It is what it is, and he's already earned his keep IMO....

    Yeah, Reed had games where he had 4 field goals too, so it's a little early IMO to judge what kind of kicker he's going to be for us. Plus, he still has to kick field goals at Heinz Field yet. But, two very promising things to point out. One is that all 4 field goals were over 40 yards today. That's where most of Reed's struggles were this year. And the second thing is that he hit one to win the game with the pressure on. We may need him to hit a big kick for us next week as well in a similar situation.

    Sushi was good today! He looked as worried about the overtime kick as Boise State's kicker was, but Sushi made his.

    I want to enjoy the win and all those field goals that Reed probably would have missed.

    Skinny Skippy, eh?

    Steelers Beat Bills in Overtime, Skinny Skippy Is Legit

    Posted on November 28, 2010 by ryan


    Got this e-mail from JJ moments after Shaun Suisham (!) converted the game-winning field goal in overtime: “Well, that wasn’t fun.” Pretty much sums up the final 40 minutes or so because at halftime, with the Steelers leading 13-0, I figured Pittsburgh was just getting warmed up and Buffalo was in the process of checking out.

    Instead, the Steelers’ defense had trouble getting off the field in the second half, and the Bills finally got some traction out of the Patriots’ blueprint for matriculating the ball down the field. It’s easy to point to the final three periods as proof that the Steelers’ defense is fatally flawed, but here’s the thing: there’s only one Tom Brady. And even though Ryan Fitzpatrick had some success completing short passes, that’s exactly what this defense is designed to do.

    It wasn’t pretty, but it worked. And let’s be honest: a lot of weird stuff had to happened for the Bills to even have a chance to tie the game late in the fourth quarter. For the second consecutive week there were some questionable penalties against the Steelers (and I’m not even talking about the Deebo roughing-the-passer call) and a that’ll-never-happen-again freak catch-and-run by Fred Jackson. Pretty sure hot routes to the running back wasn’t Chan Gailey’s recipe to scoring TDs going into this game.

    But unlike last year, the Steelers have found ways to overcome penalties and poor play. Eking out an overtime win against a 2-8 outfit isn’t how you’d draw it up, but as Mike Tomlin says all the time, “You don’t get style points.” (And I’ll be honest: the Bills are the best 2-8 team in NFL history.)

    Whatever. Pittsburgh’s 8-3 and will play for the division lead next Sunday night. In the meantime, onto the high(low)lights:

    * After watching the Steelers offense plod through their opening possessions in recent weeks against the Pats and the Raiders, it was nice to see them march down the field on their first drive against the Bills — mostly on the ground — control the clock, and punch it into the end zone on a Mendenhall touchdown.

    That all went out the window in the third quarter, but credit to the offense for regrouping in time to make some big plays down the stretch. None bigger, perhaps, than Big Ben’s 3rd and 17 scramble for 18 yards — on a bad wheel, no less (note: no word on if Ben’s toes are broken — still waiting official word from Bill Cowher) — following an iffy holding call on Chris Kemoeatu that negated a 42-yard Mendenhall run a few plays earlier.

    A year ago, Roethlisberger probably gets sacked for a 15-yard loss and Greg Warren snaps the ball over Daniel Sepulveda’s head into the end zone on the next play.

    By the way: Shaun Suisham’s new nickname is Skinny. As in: Skinny Skippy. He was 4 for 4, all beyond 40 yards. The 41-yard game-winner was obviously huge, but you could make an argument that his 48-yarder in the fourth quarter — after Manny Sanders dropped a HUGE pass that would’ve moved the sticks — was even bigger.

    It’s amazing how quickly things change: in August, Suisham was a journeyman who struggled with consistency and Jeff Reed had a legit case for a long-term deal that paid him like one of the league’s best kickers. Three months later, Suisham has Jeff’s job. And if Reed were still on the team I’m pretty sure there’s no way he converts four times Sunday.


    (Sorta related: we whinge all the time about coaches being way too conservative when it comes to jettisoning dead weight on the roster. There are a lot of things we can accuse Tomlin off — ****-poor clock management tops the list, I think — but it’s not that. Essex has been replaced by Foster, Randle El has given way to Sanders, and Skinny is the new Skippy.)

    I had heard that Sushi's biggest baggage was not being to handle the pressure kicks well. If true, he certainly went a long way towards dealing with that problem!
