Steelers Camp Preview: Shaun Suisham leads beleaguered special teams unit

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ special teams units have been up and down over the past few years. Special teams is a huge part of the game and routinely it has seemed the Steelers have just given up in this area. It’s been frustrating to watch teams get good return after good return and then have every Steeler return get negated by a penalty. That’s even when the Steelers get a good...

Improvement in the Steelers’ Kicking Game Can Benefit the Younger Defense

The most  forgotten part of the game of football is the kicking game and while NFL coaches will tell you that they stress its’ importance, kicking or special teams’ miscues are often the difference between a win and a loss. As the Steelers look to make their 3-4 defense younger and faster, they’ll still need to take advantage of every possible thing they can. Improvements...

Mike Tomlin Defends Decision To Not Take A Knee On Final Offensive Possession

There were a few interesting decisions made Sunday by Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin in the 38-31 win over the Green Bay Packers, but after the game, he stood by his call to not take a knee on the final offensive possession in an effort to run off clock time and end the game with a Shaun Suisham field goal.

Tomlin Says Cadence Issue Led To Botched Field Goal Attempt

Midway through the second quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night loss to the Baltimore Ravens, a 50-yard field goal attempt by kicker Shaun Suisham turned into a disaster as it appeared there was some confusion with the timing of the snap. On the play, Suisham appeared to start his approach just prior to the ball being snapped by Greg Warren and as a result, the timing...

Steelers Unveil The Flea Kicker, Immediately Regret It

Down a touchdown in the second quarter, the Steelers decided to try a long Shaun Suisham field goal. Or perhaps they didn’t. From what transpired, it’s difficult to tell whether this was a designed fake field goal or Suisham jumped the gun. You know it’s a special screw up when you don’t even know what the team meant to do. Anyway, the holder flipped the ball back to Suisham...

NFL Picks and Betting Advice: Week Nine

Folks, if the Steelers would have played just slightly better on Sunday I would have done the unthinkable, going 13-0 on my weekly NFL picks.  But alas, Shaun Suisham decided to miss two easy field goals and the Steelers chose to play like the 2-5 team they are so I only went 12-1.  This would have been a banner week if the Chiefs weren’t hot garbage, because I would have picked...
