    Nov 2002, Todd Peterson got hurt and the Steelers broight in 4 Kickers, including Reed. Legend has it, he kicked a 73 yard FG in a driving windstorm at Heinz. He was only wearing a beach towel and flip flops.

    No doubt Mike Tomlin is funny, tough, and develops bonds with his players. I really hope he pans out as a coach.

    BTW, most entertaining thread of the week. From Greg Warren to Warren Zevon! Genius.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    One of the best free agent pick-ups we've made since '02, IMO...

    This year he's 6/6 on field goals and 8/8 on xpts... and has only missed 2 field goals in his last 38 attempts... The kid is money! I don't care how crazy he is as long as he keeps splitting the uprights!

    Agreed. When he lines up for a field goal I don't have a sick feeling in my stomach. I assume he is going to make it.

    One of those was a 65 yarder to end a half against Denver last year that didn't miss by much and the other was a 44 yarder in that 3-0 scoring clinic win over miami in the mud last year, a game that he eventually won for us

    He is the 3rd leading scorer in steeler history (645) behind Gary Anderson (1,343) and Roy Gerela (731) and he could possibly pass Gerela this year.

    He also has 13 tackles, 11 which are solo, which is about a dozen more then Anderson and Gerela put together I'd guess



    Greg Warren ==> Warren Zevon = Nice!

    I'm actually suprised that with those sort of stats/numbers/facts that he isn't spending more time in Hawaii in February...

    Hehe...wouldn't surprise Chadman if Jeff Reed has split quite a few 'uprights'....

    Was Jeff Reed the guy that kicked with the squared off kicking shoe?
