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; well he certainly ran like someone half asleep.
The Steelers started the season 0-4, and the unthinkable started to seem like prospective reality, Pittsburgh landing the top pick in the NFL Draft. Then things turned around and they began a winning streak.
So their AFC North intra-divisional battle with the Baltimore Ravens, a titanic battle of 5-6 teams.
Enter Shaun Suisham
Look at him do his best impersonation of Chris Johnson; trying to set the edge. Oh, so close Mr. Suisham. So close.
