No indication of a Bruce Arians firing, but following through on this particular (Reed cut) possibility would please this Steelers fan.

This douchebag needs to go.  Now.

It was a 20-yard fg.  I can make a 20-yard field goal, and he's upset because Burgh fans are "too tough" on him?

No.

The organization and the fans have put up with his BS because he's just an idiot kicker.  There is a line, and Jeff Reed is waaaaay over it.

I think that bringing in kickers sends Reed a message.  Still don't buy that they're cutting him.  Worst thing would be to cut Reed punitively and find out that the replacement is worse. 

Any ideas on who a quality kicker might be that we could sign?

Stover, Suisham, the Czech (Piotr Something) and another guy are being brought in. IIRC, the Czech (or is he Russian or something else?) isn't that bad (in fact, wasn't he in Steelers training camp at one point?). Don't like the thought of Suisham. Stover, IMO, can do no worse than Reed at this juncture.

Saw reaction from Hoke and Foote on the CW this morning. Hoke said he was friends with Reed and hated to hear this, but understood it was a business. Foote didn't appear to be as strongly in Reed's corner, as he reacted with somewhat delighted surprise and said something along the lines of "Well, you gotta make those kicks. If you don't, this is what happens."

Yeah, let's spend some time this week creating the illusion that Reed's getting replaced. We don't have any other things we need to be working on.

At this point, you just get a guy that can kick it into the EZ and hit 50% and we're ahead of the current game.

I think the last time I saw that Czech dude was in the UFL or WTF it's called.

Get a vet - Stover kicked for the Ravens for a long time.  Don't know why they got rid of him but he was good.  If he's not finished, there's your guy.

Stover's 42, went to Indy for their SB year, solid on 40 and unders, about average on 50+, no notable injuries.  2008 and 09 were his worst % years in a decade (81.8%). 

Sold.

Suisham's too inconsistent, had some big misses in big games.

Czech yr Piotr has a strong leg but was too inconsistent in camp.  He'd be a KO specialist only IMO.

I wouldn't mind taking a guy from College last year. Who's the best guy not on a team right now with a big leg (for kickoffs) and decent accuracy. I was looking at the stats, but the best guys seem to have stayed in college. I like the senior from Utah (Joe something) for next year.

OK Chris. Now that we have practiced kissing and cuddling, we'll practice eating out...at a fancy restaurant.
