Dear Kevin Colbert,

If Shaun Suisham can't be trusted for a 47 yarder then he must be replaced.

Cordially,

I don't trust him from 37.

What was that one right before the half? 50? Didn't think he'd make that.

On November 18, 2010, two days after Reed was released by the Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals offered Reed a contract. However, he declined.

San Francisco 49ers
On December 2, 2010, Reed signed with the San Francisco 49ers to replace their injured kicker, Joe Nedney. Reed had a good outing in his first game, going 3 for 3, including a field goal from 44 yards out.

Seattle Seahawks
Reed signed with the Seattle Seahawks on August 3, 2011, but was released on September 4.

Seems like I heard that he's something like 4 for 7 from 30-39.  That's unacceptable.  If you have 3 misses from 30-39 then you need to have about 95 attempts IMO.

Suisham's not nearly as good this year as he was last year, but what I can't for the life of me understand is why Tomlin doesn't approach being between, say, the 35-28 yard lines as four-down territory at the open end of the field. The proverbial wad doesn't have to be blown on third down all the time, especially if you know your kicker can't fucking make the FG from that far out.

It's too outside the box for Tomlin.

Unless I'm missing something, Tomlin never seems to pull out wins based on in-game (or hell, even pre-game) coaching moves (a la Bill Bellichik - sp?). Further, he has a propensity for not being able to perform even the most basic of HC tasks. So I ask - why is he still coaching the Steelers?

Tomlin has earned a pretty long rope IMO.  I have complaints but am in no way ready to run the guy out of town.  There's room for improvement and I bet he does. 

:blinders:

Really though, how much of a genius is Belichick? Since the defeat to the NYG in the Superbowl to finish 18-1, the Patsies have not won a single playoff game.  So there's that.

You have the patience of a saint.

Re: BB, sure he's had a bad playoff record since 18-1, but dude wins 75 percent (yes, 3/4) of the time his team plays. That's freaking incredible, and it's due largely to the schemes he puts in place (and I look to the Cassell 11-5 season for proof).

IMO, having #12 running those schemes has as much, if not moreso, to do with his success.
