When kickers lose it they lose it - past results are no guarantee of future performance
Vanderjagt was money for the Colts for years and completely fell apart after shanking the playoff game FG against the Steelers
Reed started to slip when he missed 2 FGs in the week two Chicago loss in 2009 and had fallen apart completely when he was cut after the New England loss - because he also was a jacka** he had no goodwill in the bank once he lost it and was gone
