By Alex Kozora A Pittsburgh Steelers player by player recap, grouped by position, reviewing the 2013 season. Getting closer to the end. Due up, the specialists. Shaun Suisham: Kicker is a position fans tend to toss barbs at but it’s difficult to fault Suisham. Aside from a tough game against Oakland, and to put all the blame on him for the loss is asinine, he didn’t miss a kick...

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. "I am not into that," said Tomlin during his post game...

Pittsburgh Not Amused After Special Teams Made The Butt Of The Joke

By Matthew Marczi In a game that saw Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker send a quintuplet of pigskins through the uprights in what was ultimately a two-point loss, the special teams performance of the Pittsburgh Steelers should probably be credited with assists on a pair of those field goals. First, there was the comical ‘cadence’ issue on the lone field goal attempt by Shaun...

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...

GIF: Steelers PK Sean Suisham swings and misses everything on FGA

Pittsburgh Steelers Placekicker Shaun Suisham swung and missed tonight on a field goal attempt. He didn’t just miss the field goal, or miss the kick. He missed the attempt of the kick. Shaun Suisham missed even trying to try the kick. In the third and final installment of the 2013 Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl, Suisham looked like a guy who might have been in a tryptothan induced coma...

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...

Wanna Get Away? Danny Smith Probably Does

By Matthew Marczi What was the worst game that the Pittsburgh Steelers have had in recent memory on special teams in which the opposing team did not score a touchdown? Was it this one? If you said yes, I would not put up much of an argument. Some of the mistakes were obvious—glaring, even. Kicker Shaun Suisham, who entered the afternoon coming off a game-winner from beyond 40 and...

Blame Game Rolls on After Steelers’ Loss in Oakland

For whatever reason, we as Steeler fans are pretty much like the rest of society in that we feel we must lay blame for every thing that goes against out favor. It’s almost an American tradition. With the Steelers 21-18 loss in Oakland tonight, the ‘Blame Game’ is in full effect in Steeler Nation. Shaun Suisham is taking most of the blame and as well he should. He missed two...

Aftermath: Raiders 21, Steelers 18

If you thought the pain was over this season, the Steelers showed that it could be much worse. Against a terrible team, the Steelers displayed the kind of bad luck and lack of execution that only plagues the most snake-bitten of teams in this league--losing 21 to 18, despite holding the Raiders to zero points in the second half. Shaun Suisham, perfect so far and largely responsible...

Not just upset enough to flip the refs off once, but to reload and get them a second time.Not to worry, the drive ended with Shaun Suisham’s second field goal miss of the game.

Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 43-yard field goal as time ran out to give the Raiders the win in Week 3 last season.

Suisham's hot streak carrying Steelers

Some players live for the big moment. Shaun Suisham is not one of them. The Pittsburgh Steelers placekicker says he takes the same approach no matter the circumstances. It's one of the reasons why he treated his field goal as time expired in last week's 19-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens like just another kick. ''Sure, it's great to make those, but I&...
