the turf was never a problem the previous 7 or however many years he's been here. sometimes a kicker just loses it completely.. look what happened to Vanderjagt. he went from the most accurate kicker in NFL history to out of the league. if Reed lost it, then it's time to go.

What good does that do when you have an offense that can't score TD's in the red zone. Don't make Reed the scapegoat for the offense's ineptitude.

Sounds like a plan... What did Tony Dungy say ? The first time it just happens, the 2nd is a coincidence, the 3td time is a pattern... Reed is on his 6-10 easy miss this year....

They'll sign a kicker and let him kick a game before cutting Reed because Reed is almost perfect in practices on the field or indoors so its impossible to tell if a kicker who comes in who kickers perfectly will be perfect during the game or as low as Reed has been.

When Reed was signed during mid-November 2002 after a mid-week tryout they put his predecessor Todd Peterson on IR immediately without Reed first kicking in a real game - this sounds familiar

Cowher seemed at his wits end with his veteran kicker after he missed field goals from 37 and 31 yards Sunday. Apparently, Cowher did not consider kicking with a broken rib an excuse or it was merely the final straw on a poor season for Peterson, whose nine missed field-goal tries are the most in the league. He was 12 of 21....

[Reed] kicked for Cowher yesterday along with veteran Michael Husted and youngsters Joe O'Donnell and Danny Boyd. They kicked PATs, 10 field goals from various distances at the open end of the field and two kickoffs, one each way.

This was how Ed. B. of the P-G welcomed Skippy to Heinz

The house of kicking horrors that is Heinz Field awaits him, having added another notch to its belt.

I'm just going by what they said, since a lot of other teams do this, I could be wrong, I don't know how Tomlin runs things.

With Skippy soon to be let go, towel dispensers in Western PA should be sighing in relief.
