Cowboys replacing Nick Folk with Shaun Suisham

The Dallas Cowboys are finally changing kickers.

After trying out kickers today in response to Nick Folk nearly costing them Saturday’s game against the Saints, the Cowboys have decided to sign former Redskins kicker Shaun Suisham, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting.

Suisham’s first game will be on Sunday against the Redskins. In 12 games for the Redskins this season, Suisham made 18 of 21 field goal attempts, with a long of 48 yards.

There’s no word yet on whether the Cowboys have cut Folk, as Ed Werder of ESPN reported that they might put him on injured reserve. But either way, Suisham is now the Cowboys’ kicker.

  1. And homo is still the holder so if you keep him away from the corn on the cob during the games he may be able to hold on to the ball

  2. Pokes now have two kickers under contract that have missed their last two kicks..and they both happen to be under 29 yds.
    Sure…..things are different this year

  3. Always makes me chuckle when a team cuts a kicker for ineffectiveness then runs out and signs another kicker who was cut for ineffectiveness.

  4. Two PKs and not a one who could kick field goals?
    Suisham’s shank against N.O. was eerily similar to Folk’s, but his 18-21 season % is stellar compared to the year Folk is having.

  5. BigBluefan is not only the first to post on a COWBOY’s thread, he also proves “homo” is a favorite word in his lexicon. ( look it up, Giants fan.)

  6. And as for suisham signing..
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. So the Coyboys are replacing a player who ALMOST cost them the game against the Saints for a player who DID cost the Redskins the game against the Saints.
    That is the funniest thing I have heard this season. That is a sign of good management. Jerry Jones is a genius.

  8. And as for the Suisham wants to get even with the Skins for cutting him angle, well, The Cowboys cut him before the Skins signed him and he missed a FG against the Cowboys.
    Awesome.

  9. Folk was steller for his first 2yrs. May be his offseason hip surgery jacked him up. I’m not opposed to keeping him around on IR.

  10. I love how people drag Romo into this. But don’t look now because Romo’s numbers are up to Rivers level and he is playing as well as any QB in the league currently.
    People just don’t want to admit it though so they just bring up their December record over and over again instead to try and hide it.
    Now I’m not saying Romo is going to run the rest of the table in December and finally win a playoff game, but give him his credit where it’s due. He is finally NOT the reason that the Cowboys have lost 5 games overall and 2 in December.

  11. “Pokes now have two kickers under contract that have missed their last two kicks..and they both happen to be under 29 yds.”
    The Eagirls have 52 guys under contract that got their asses kicked by the Cowboys in Philly just a couple of months ago.

  12. “Always makes me chuckle when a team cuts a kicker for ineffectiveness then runs out and signs another kicker who was cut for ineffectiveness.”
    Yeah well I’m not sure that anybody should be looking to the Redskins as a model of what to do in a given situation. 18 of 21 kicks is not bad, good enough to be in the top half of the NFL percentage-wise but even if it were not, it’s a lot better than Folk’s 65%.

  13. hahahaha..now we’re gonna beat the cowboys next sunday. suisham costed us the game on two missed field goals against the cowboys. then he blew it on 23 yards against the saints

  14. Hope the Packers do the same. Crosby has it in his head right now and you can’t be making a playoff push with a mentally damaged kicker.

  15. Thank you NFLJunkie. I am so tired of people blaming Romo 4 everything. The game against the Saints he did his job very well. I do not know why people hate on the boyz. I grew up a fan and I will always be a fan. I am not so crazy about Jerry Jones because he wants to be a coach and no just an owner and I think that has cost us but unfortunately it is his toy. I am just a loyal fan who wants to see them winning again. I guess the reason why people hate them so bad is they are jealous and have been on the wrong end of the win.

    Hmm. If 20-16 is an ass kicking, then what is 44-6?

  17. Well, he already knows how to find the stadium, and they know what size shoes he needs, what the hell, it’s just a kicker. Titans got Bironas as a Packers castoff. Lightning strikes.

  18. Hey Vox, how was the witless protection program? Hopefully you made reservations to return again the next time the Cows lose.
    Great move by the Cows too, If Suisham blows one against the Skins, the poety will be perfect, he will have won one for the Skins while wearing the star on his noggin!!!

  19. Eagles got their ass kicked in Philly by the Cowboys? LMAO. 20-16 is barely skating by. Now, if you would say a score like 44-6….yea….thats an ass kicking.

  20. How about them cowgirls? 3 kickers and they all are mediocre at best if that. Does it matter? It is December. Def. a Jerruh decision.

    And yet, oddly enough, the Eagles are atop the division and have clinched a playoff berth, and not the Cowboys.

  22. Suisham is a good kid. I rooted for him before, and I’ll be rooting for him again.
    Unfortunately, our kicking problems (Folk was awesome before, what happened?) are coachable. But since we know the deal there, Jerry had to open his wallet.
    The worst part is we have to make a big deal about kickers. Kickers, seriously? That’s what it’s come down?
    Well, we may have had games where we’ve handed other teams their asses in the past but the Eagles handed us ours when it counted most.
    And I’d hate to think that it is going to have to come down to kickers.

  23. Two clown franchises at work. No wonder both teams are among the most hated. Neither team will ever win anything with those owners. With that said, how great would it be if Suisham beats the Deadskins with a last second FG? I think we’ll all laugh our asses off…..except for the 24 or so Deadskin fans.

  24. Suisham already helped the Cowboys beat the Redskins once this season. Let’s see if he can do it again.
    10 bucks says the Redskins sign Folk this offseason

  25. ‘Folk was steller for his first 2yrs. May be his offseason hip surgery jacked him up. I’m not opposed to keeping him around on IR.”
    I have no problem putting an injured guy on IR either.
    But if his hip really was bothering him, why not address the issue much earlier in the season and why go through the hullabaloo over blaming the holder and such nonsense?
    It just seems like two games left in the season is a retarded time to try to address such an important issue. And add to that that Dallas is signing a kicker they cut who was then cut by Washington for the same reason they are replacing Fol.. for missing FG’s and short ones at that.
    It’s like every time something goes right in Dallas they want to screw something else up and some decisions, like this one just isn’t worth defending them against.

    Shut up. You got lit up by DeMarcus Russel. Your not the Saints, your simple offense hasn’t seen a defense like ours…oh….wait…..20-16…
    BTW all-time: Good Guys 56 – Eturds 43……who owns who.

    Saintsbaby – and who won that game on Saturday anyway?
    Uuhhhh, Cowboys? 13-1 > 9-5 Maybe you make the playoffs as a wild card.

    Cowboys beat the Saints right?
    Just checkin.
    Uuhhhh, yes for the first time in 15 years. By the way that was not the Super Bowl, it was just a December game which I know that they are hard to come by for you guys.
    Savor the flavor. Maybe by Jan. we can get all of our defensive players back. Its hard to stop anybody with people off of the street. Take 6 starters off of the Cowboys defense and see how they would perform.

  28. “Hmm. If 20-16 is an ass kicking, then what is 44-6?”
    A sign that the Eagles can’t handle the Cowboys this year like they did last year?

  29. It’s funny how the Cowboys keep bringing up the 20-16 “ass kicking” from earlier this year and how they think because they are at home next time its an easy win. In 2007, the Cowboys did kick the Eagles ass in Philly 38-17 and what happened when you played them in Dallas later that year? 10-6 Eagles. So keep thinking that Saints game was the turning point because the week 15 win over the Giants last year was the turning point too. And by turning point I mean getting outscored 77-20 the last two games.

  30. The Eagirls have 52 guys under contract that got their asses kicked by the Cowboys in Philly just a couple of months ago.
    That’s right. And there is no doubt when the stakes are the biggest, the Cowboys will come up big, just like they did last year.
