Honestly, how is this our best K option?
IMO, this is the biggest 2012 failure of our coaching and front office in the offseason/preseason. Quite honestly, this wasn't a difficult problem to solve.
I will go on record, that Suisham will cost us at least 1 game this season and we won't make it to the SB with him as our K. Not this year, not ever as long as he's our K.
In the AFC, it's very likely that the road to the SB will be in:
#1 - Outdoor stadiums
#2 - Outdoor stadiums that have harsh weather/wind conditions. That could be New England, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and possibly even Denver or Cinci.
Suisham is simply not good beyond 40 yards especially if it's bad weather/wind which will require a stronger leg. He definitely has no business kicking in a place like Pittsburgh where weather/wind will be a factor. I'm farily certain that we'll need to make a few of those kicks to make it to the SB and he won't be able to come thru when needed.
