Steelers, Shaun Suisham agree to terms

Shaun Suisham, Daniel Sepulveda AP

The Pittsburgh Steelers have reached a deal with kicker Shaun Suisham.

The Canadian news site CKDP.ca, which we’re pretty sure we’ve never credited with an NFL scoop before, was first to report the news. (Suisham is from Wallaceburg, Ontario, which CKDP.ca covers.)

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has confirmed that Suisham and the Steelers have agreed to a deal.

Suisham first entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Steelers in 2005. He later spent time with the Cowboys, 49ers, Redskins, Cowboys again, Browns and Rams before returning to the Steelers in 2010.

    Awesome. Because I love watching Suisham miss field goals for the Steelers.

    Squeeze ‘Em Suisham!

    Yeah, because he missed one all last year for them…dumfuk.

    This guy cost both the Steelers and the Vikings a Super Bowl. Last year he attempted a 52-yard field goal in the SB that I would have been closer on, and the year before with Washington he missed a chip shot that would have beaten New Orleans and given the Vikings home field advantage in the NFC championship game. That would have made all the difference. Good move, Steelers.

    YES! Welcome back, Shaun! You’re the best, I’m still laughing as I think about Tomlin calling Susisham out to kick that 52 yarder. I have never been more confident in my life that a kicker would miss a kick. Go Pack Go!

    Remember when Suisham set a Super Bowl record for the worst miss ever? That was great. Go Pack!

    @Phantom
    Get a clue. You really think a missed long field goal is what cost the Steelers the SB?

    arent kickers kind of important when you’re in a lot of CLOSE GAMES?

    You obviously mean the regular season, right? Cuz he missed two in the post-season and one was KIND OF IMPORTANT, M’BOY! Go Pack!

  12. goawayeverybody says: Jul 27, 2011 4:36 PM

    Hey ironhead, he missed two not one. And also he only played like what, 5 regular season games? Not a very broad array of chances from which to draw any statistical significance. And he’s not accurate from long-distance.

    But hey, don’t listen to me, just keep your eye on the Steelers’ season this year. They’ll lose lots of games by 3 points or less.

    Sadly, the SB wasn’t that close and it was because of Pack’s defense making plays, and their offense not making mistakes. One field goal would not have done it for the Steelers. Pack made the plays in the clutch. It was their night, so give ‘em props. I hated it! But I can’t say our kicker won it for them. They just outplayed us.

    No, not really. I just like bringing up the chip shot against the Saints and the fact that almost a billion people around the world knew he would miss that 52-yarder but Mike Tomlin didn’t. A guy in a hut in Myanmar was screaming at his TV when Suisham was trotted out for that field goal, “Tomlin, you idiot! This guy couldn’t make a 52-yarder in practice let alone in the Super Bowl!” (translated from Burmese).

    He was 14 of 15 during regular season making 13 straight…

    Last year was his first post season where he missed two. One of those two was a 50+ yarder in the biggest game of his career.

    Even if he makes it, do you think Rodgers would not of had drove right down the field again? Give the kicker a break.

    That’s right black n gold, keep Dallas’s sloppy thirds. He’s not exactly Captain Clutch, is he?

  17. ron7mexico says: Jul 27, 2011 5:15 PM

    It’s true he is no Tony Romo with the game on the line. Whatever!

    Hey carlswalloworspit-so when did you become a packer fan?Answer is when they started winning in the 90′s. With your comments on here as sorry as they are you cant be more than 20 years old. So i may be wrong on the 90′s.

  19. blackngold4life says: Jul 27, 2011 6:15 PM

    LMAO..HE ONLY MISSD ONE ALL LAST YEAR..DONT KNOW WHAT GAMES U WAS WATCHIN..AND THE ONE IN THE SUPERBOWL WAS A NON FACTOR..GO DO YA HOME WORK

    In other news, the Post-Gazette is reporting that Tomlin is meeting with Plaxico.

    He did his job, kept his mouth shut, and no paper towel dispensers were injured. Works for me.
