pretty much anyone is an upgrade over than Reed this season. he's been the absolute worst kicker in the league. his days of being reliable are clearly behind him. Suisham may not be that good.. but he has to at least be somewhat better than the worst kicker in the league.

And the Steelers can bring in someone else in a few weeks if this switch does not work out

Reed has missed very few short FGs during his career, and even this year.
Don't blame the guy for missing >50yds FGs. This is not his range. He shouldn't have to kick FGs from this distance if our coaches had an Oz of brains and if the offense was clicking on all cylinders, to begin with.
I agree that Reed's kick-offs were not good but this is not new.
Anyway, we'll see what Suisham brings to the table. Obviously, he's not a gem otherwise he wouldn't have been available today.
There's a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes at the Steelers. They let Santonio go, now they let Reeds go and the main reasons are not football related.
This doesn't smell good. I hope Reed doesn't end up with Cincinnati when they come here in December. He knows Heinz Field better than anyone.

I've been displeased with his performance this year...but worst kicker in the league is a little extreme don't you think?

You may be eating your words if Suisham (who doesn't seem to have that great of a reputation at all) bombs this Sunday.

I was for replacing Reed, because of performance and attitude, but this seems really knee-jerk. I'm very wary. They did in one day what they probably should have taken an offseason and training camp to do IMO.

We'll see the next couple of weeks I guess. I'll reserve my final judgement for then.

Even if you ignore his rotten kickoffs, based on the stats for this year worst kicker in the league is spot on given his league worst 68.2% overall completion % and 0=4 record when kicking from 40-49 yards

http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/pl...t/fieldGoalPct

It is a gamble - but Reed has been slipping since early 2009 (starting with the Chicago game in which fellow problem Holmes also contributed to the loss) and his acting out about his contract burned up any goodwill he had with management

Honestly, do you think Reed would have been cut now if he didn't make the comments? I think that sent him out the door. They have never been happy with Reed's attitude or behavior but have tolerated it because his performance was good enough. But to call out the fans and starting the blame game, you have to think that was the proverbial straw.

Actually, he IS statistically the worst kicker in the league as far as % of FGA made. This move was more likely an attempt to kick-start a struggling team rather than purely an attempt to find a better kicker. I hope it works.
