    The Steelers do everything as a team, including urination

    By MJD

    The Pittsburgh Steelers' tradition of success is often credited to a family-style, all-for one, one-for-all type of attitude that runs from the top of the organization down to the bottom.

    It appears that that attitude spreads off the field, too. Into bars, even. Into the parking lots of those bars. And to the vehicles next to which backup tight ends are urinating.

    Steelers kicker Jeff Reed(notes), never noted for his shy behavior, was arrested last night and charged with simple assault and resisting arrest. According to Pittsburgh's TribLive, Reed was coming to the aid of teammate Matt Spaeth, who was urinating next to a white SUV.

    Here's the report:

    Police responded to an unrelated incident at McFadden's, a North Shore bar and restaurant across a parking lot from Heinz Field, around 9 p.m., [police Sargeant Tina] Davidson said. While there, officers spotted a man urinating outside a white sport utility vehicle and began to give the man identified as Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth(notes) a ticket when Reed exited the vehicle, Davidson said.

    "The officers told him several times to get back in the vehicle, but he did not listen," Davidson said. "Mr. Reed then squared up with an officer by bringing his fists up."

    Officers tackled Reed and cuffed him at the scene, Davidson said.

    "He smelled of a strong odor of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated," Davidson said.

    Ah, Jeff Reed. Leave it to him to get in trouble when he's not even the one doing the public urinating. Exactly how was he defending Spaeth? Police saw him peeing. What can he possibly say? Was it the old, "Come on, officer, this guy's got really clean pee" defense?

    Kicker or not, no one can ever say that Jeff Reed isn't there for his teammates.

    When they said Skippy got in a battle stance IMO he was so loaded he probably did the Daniel LaRusso crane kick.

    Can not defend if done properly

    Yeah for the other team.

    We're going to have a 4 TE offense and 2 wideouts.

    He then agrees to a contract.

    We then release him.

    Then we make a trade for "future considerations" to get the draft picks from them.
    I've seen you post this in several threads now, Crash. One major problem: The NFL no longer allows teams to trade for past or future considerations. That was outlawed nearly a decade ago. If they let Ben go to Arizona, they'd have to trade for actual present day value --- actual picks or players that are identified now. Plus all of his signing bonus would immediate accelerate into this years cap, negating any ability to gain any cap flexibility. So they'd be in just as bad a shape cap-wise AND have no one to play QB and looking at a horrible draft for QBs this year. Lousy plan.

    Not a one year fix. It's a two year fix and reload in 2015.

    Why gut a team and have a QB with a $20 mil cap hit?

    That is what happens when you have a 100mil QB. Look at the Ravens. Some tough cap times.

    No, it's what happens when you draft like crap and keep re-working contracts of older players to stay afloat.

    2006, 2007, 2008, 2009.

    Those drafts have mostly dried up in a mere 7 years.
