Steelers were not impressed with Kai Forbath; Will they keep trying to find a replacement for Scobee?

The Steelers were not sold on Redskins former kicker Kai Forbath to send Josh Scobee packing

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost the other night to the Baltimore Ravens because they coach was scared to put their kicker on the field again after he missed 2 field goals that would have easily sent the Ravens packing. 

The Steelers sent a sixth-round pick to Jacksonville for kicker Josh Scobee, after kicker Garrett Hartley, the replacement for kicker Shaun Suisham and his torn ACL, suffered an injury.

As noted by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Scobee had a career success rate of 71.5 percent for kicks between 40 and 49 yards. With the Steelers, Scobee has made only three of seven from that distance.

The team reportedly tried out kicker Kai Forbath on Friday, but apparently didn’t like what they saw enough to replace Scobee.  What will the Steelers do?  They need a kicker badly don’t they?
