Jeff Reed

I know this is already a fanshot, but I think it deserves more attention.  The Steelers are contemplating cutting Reed and will be trying out kickers this week.

Here is where Reed loses me, he claims that the ball moved on his missed 22 yard kick because of the bad grass, but if you look at the replay, it clearly shows that he kicked the ground before the ball, causing him to get nearly no leverage on the kick.  I hate when players blame the field, because his counterpart kicked on the same field. 

Another think that bugs me is that Reed chided Steeler fans for booing him after the miss.  When asked if he heard the sarcastic cheers after a made extra-point, Reed offered this Gem about the fans in Philly, er I mean Pittsburgh, "It doesn't surprise me," Reed told the Post-Gazette. "If you're not perfect in this city, man, then you're going to hear about it. It's been like that for nine years, and why would they stop now?" Im sorry Jeff, missing a 22 yard field goal (not just shanking it, but completely whiffing) is something any fanbase would jeer you about.  Especially after missing 7 field goals in 9 games.  

We are better off without him, his punk attitude and his off-field jackassery.
