sometimes when you can't get it done, you just need to be shown the door.
I'm sure we can work with whatever we can find.

Adam Schefter reported it first...guess we'll find out tomorrow the truth behind the story.

Quote:
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers are "contemplating" cutting ties with K Jeff Reed.
Pittsburgh will host multiple free agent kickers on Tuesday. Reed shanked a 26-yard field goal in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots, blaming the Heinz Field home turf. Reed, who received the franchise tag this past offseason, has now missed seven field goals this year. Remarked Reed of Steelers fans after the Week 10 loss, "They started (mocking me) before the game even started. ... They buy tickets just to bash me and P Dan (Sepulveda) and LS Greg (Warren). It's more me because points come off my foot."
http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/402010...s-player_news/

No Jeff...they don't buy tickets to bash you or Sepulveda or Warren (???)

Jeff,
If the fan's were "mocking" you even before the game started....i'm sure it had nothing to do with your previous misses, horrendous kick-offs, or your "girlie" tackling attempts......

Quick put him on the suicide watch list. This is really going to hurt his feelings.

Given how defensive the Rooneys have been about refusing to upgrade Heinz Cow Pasture, Reed should have known he was grabbing on to a live wire when he complained about the turf.

If you are in your contract year and are too high maintenanace the Steelers will toss you no matter how much you have contributed - just ask Santonio Holmes how that works

My guess is a lot has gone on in the locker room with Reed above what is public knowledge - I have heard the off the field problems go beyond alcohol abuse and towel dispenser rage to include matters this franchise in particular wants no part of

sometimes organizations, i don't care who they are, have to make statements. Bold statements. And quickly. Such as in Dallas last week.
A clear message needs sent out......it might be Reed, it might be somebody else....it might be the whole damn team.......if you don't perform, the GET OUT of here
