I just came in here to post the exact same thing.

I'm far more comfortable letting Suh hold the ball and letting an former all-state prep soccer player (Lions P Nick Harris) kick the extra point than the other way around.

It's holding a freakin' ball. It's not that hard. Kicking a small pointy oval shaped ball straight is much more difficult.

It's not as easy as you illustrate, but I think anyone on the roster who held a snap in his college career, can refresh his memory on the sideline with some practice snaps.

EDIT: read Suh was a soccer player and won a kicking competition in camp. Still; how can he beat a punter in the kicking competition?

EDIT 2: if Suh is your kicker, why don't you just go for 2?

Steelers start both of their first drives inside the Bengals 30. Bengals special teams to blame both times (fumbled kickoff to start game, blocked punt when rusher came in through middle completely unblocked).

Bengals look absolutely terrible. This team has been getting worse over the course of the season.

When did Cincy import the Chargers special teams?

And the ball is on the Steeler half of the field for the first time with 6:39 left in the first quarter.

Crowd gives mock cheer to Bengals for a successful special teams play.

On TO's 2nd catch (I think) of the drive, he placed the ball on the ground while he was still on the ground. That should have been ruled incomplete, right?

Someone needs to hit Arians with a shovel every time he calls the bubble screen to Hines Ward. It gets 2 yards at most every time.

TO does a mime routine after his TD catch, does that mean he shouldn't be talking?

Hey, the Bengals have woken up!

and as soon as I say that, Carson Palmer throws a terrible pick.

Kerry Collins to Randy Moss? Y'all are making that up, right?

LMAO.... what a dope.

I'd say lucking out and not blowing yet another huge late lead by reverting off your D should be more concerning than that.
