Suisham is a journeyman who struggled while kicking in several NFL camps since entering the league in 2005. But, he might have finally found a home in Pittsburgh. He replaced the popular and once-reliable Jeff Reed in November and finished the regular season 14 of 15 on field-goal attempts.

“I love it in Pittsburgh,” he said. “I love Heinz Field. I love the fans. I love everything about Pittsburgh and I’m so happy to be there.”

Suisham, who missed a 43-yard field goal in the divisional playoff round against Baltimore, shakes his head at the fact he could decide the outcome of a Super Bowl.

“Three months ago, I was out of work,” Suisham said. “You get used to playing football, that’s what you do, and you worked for it every week. When you’re out of it, certainly it’s uncomfortable when Sundays come around and you’re at home.”

If the Packers‘ offense stalls in field-goal range, Green Bay will turn to Crosby, a sixth-round pick out of Colorado in 2007 who grew up in Texas.

With the wicked weather this week in Dallas, Crosby is thrilled to be playing the Super Bowl indoors.

“Obviously, we play in a tough environment at Lambeau,” Crosby said. “We play in a lot of cold games. We get used to it as much as you possibly can. When you go inside, you don’t have to worry about footing, the wind, just the elements in general.”

And if it comes down to a game-winning kick to bring the Packers their first Super Bowl title since 1997, Crosby won’t deviate from his routine.

“Once you’re out on the field as players, it all feels like football,” Crosby said.
