Steelers Nation Campaigns For Jeff Reed, And One Man Poignantly Puts It In Song
The Steelers have fallen out of love with their current kicker, Josh Scobee, after he missed two field goals in their loss to Baltimore on Thursday. Of course kickers don't lose games, teams lose gam ... hey! Who threw that brick?
Anyway, Jeff Reed has made it known that he wants back in. Reed kicked for the Steelers from 2002 to 2010, but is most noted for destroying a paper towel dispenser at a Sheetz convenience store in 2009. He has also consumed many alcoholic beverages. The Steelers cut him in 2010, and after clearing waivers, the Bengals tried to sign him, but Reed refused.
Let's keep this simple...bring me back Pittsburgh!

Reed says he's changed his ways! Come on Steelers, take a chance! This man agrees.
Reed, to Pittsburgh radio station 93.7 The Fan (via CBS Sports):
“I’m in condition to kick,” Reed said. “I do have a 72-hour a week job…I’ve taken a different approach to life after some mistakes and hiccups and other things that I’ve experienced…It’s one of those things where I don’t kick every week. I sure don’t. I mean, if I told you that, I’m lying to you. But, I kicked about seven, eight weeks ago…I train three days a week – not as much as I’d like to, but when you work 9-9, you kind of like to sleep here and there.”
Reed, on why former Jaguar Scobee missed two field goals in the fourth quarter on Thursday.
“Jacksonville, they don’t really expect to win,” Reed said. “When you play on a team that, every once in a while they’ll sneak in a win or maybe they’ll win six games, there’s not a whole lot of pressure. When you come to Pittsburgh…he’s dealing with a different kind of pressure.”
