Jeff has been money all year for us, and recent super bowls have down to a kicker more often than most would expect.. so Jeff could very well be very instrumental in this game on sunday. Ive got 100 percent confidence in him to do his job for us each time he's called upon.

Having said that, Im not sure my heart can take another crazy ending especially in the Super Bowl :sofunny:

Thoughts :tt:

i too have faith in reed (just not kicking it off) i know that miss field goal in the rca dome in the reg. season was pretty much a fluke. i think he'll be able to hit the game winner if need be. but hopefully it'll be a total blow out and we won't have to worry about no ending like that lol.

you guys sound like you have the same faith Colts fans had in their kicker a few weeks ago. Luckily, i am confident that it wont come down to Josh Brown's golden foot this time around.

Any kicker in the league can hit a game winning Super Bowl kick. It's all about timing, and whether you have the confidence in yourself that you can win the game, and be the hero. I'm sure Jeff Reed could possess this ability. Not many people would probably give him a chance to hit because he's never made a perfect seaspn kicking, he's never been in the papers.. etc. How did Adam Vinatieri come to be known around the world? He made a game winning kick to beat the Greatest Show on Turf.

It's nice to have an insurance policy like Reed,but it ain't going to come down to his foot. The STEELERS WILL have this game well in hand before the final two minutes come up!

oh trust me, we have faith in Reed and we know he can do it.. but believe me, we're just as confident that by 2 minutes left, Cowher will have his next gatorade bath :busted:

You may have faith in Reed, as you should. But is he a proven kicker like Vinatieri or say... Josh Brown? No!!! Brown has a foot of gold. He kicked two long distance game winners this season (vs. NYG and DAL.) And, came two inches from kicking a long game winner in DC, which would have put the hawks at 14-2. So when it comes down to a game winner, this is your man:

14-2, please get real. If you played in any other division in the NFL your team would not have had 6 easy wins! St Loius , San Fran, Arizona. :sissies:

Previous super bowls have absolutely no effect on this year's super bowl outside of maybe stigma garbage like this getting into the coaches' minds.

Thats a good point - I bet Holmgren and Cowher are always looking on SF for coaching tips - BRC you should be more careful about what you say - you have probably just affected the outcome of the SB! :cool:

I'm sure Steeler fans would much rather have Reed, who DOES HIS JOB. Rather than a guy who likes to do Ballet on the field.

Reed has done the job many times in the past. I have confidence in him that he can get the job done.

I agree. Any NFL kicker can hit for three on a technical basis. However, when the choke takes hold anything can happen. Ask the Giants, ask Buffalo, ask the Colts.

I don't care what he does after making the kick...as long as he makes the kick. What Reed does afterwards who cares?

I've just checked a few numbers, Adam Vinatieri was 80.4% good until the Super Bowl game in 2001. Not really being called upon to make really.. any huge kicks. Just thinking about the pressure of making that kick, your heart pounding, you can feel how kickers feel. Adam made the kick, and New England won. He has done that Super Bowl kick two more times. Jeff Reed is 81.4% in his career up to his first SB appearance. Josh Brown is 78.8. Not like it matters, but just some numbers that everyone likes to see.

Jeff Reed Is Gonna Be Money For Us. Well Thought Points To you Man.

Being a Nebraska fan, I have always been a Josh Brown supporter (until this week!). However, there is no reason to believe the Pittsburgh kicking game is in worse hands with Reed. In fact, statistically, Reed has had a better year than Brown.

Brown:

20-29 yards: 5
30-39 yards: 4
40-49 yards: 4
50+ yards: 5
Long: 55 yards
FG made vs. attempted: 18 of 28 72%
PAT's: 56 of 57

Reed:

20-29 yards: 9
30-39 yards: 9
40-49 yards: 6
50+ yards: 0
Long: 44 yards
FG made vs. attempted: 24 of 29 82.8%
PAT's: 45 of 45

Reed doesn't get the chance to attempt 50+ yarders because he plays half his games in Heinz Field where 50+ yarders don't happen. However, inside of 40, he is almost automatic.

I don't think this game comes down to a FG. However, if it does, especially in a dome, I like Reed's accuracy. Brown's leg strength makes him more a long threat, but his accuracy has something he has always struggled with.

I stand behind Jeff Reed 100%! He's a great guy and a great team player. Oh... And I like his hair...(lol)!

Jeff Reed is Mr. Clutch. Sonce wind is not a factor at Ford Field, he'll be great between 45-52 yards.

I do agree that Jeff should just stick with about 6 extra points. That would be so bitter sweet!

he has been solid, so i will not doubt him until i have a reason. and i want, no i NEED a blowout. nothing too outrageous, say 49-0 at the half or something....here's hopin'.
