So Reed should be babied because he is a kicker and more weak minded? Sorry, that doesn't cut it. He gets paid millions of dollars to kick a damn ball. Suck it up fcuker.

If I got paid millions of dollars to do a specific job, and sucked at it...I'd EXPECT the criticism, not whine about it.

lol ZING!

i love the "skippy just needs a hug" pseudo-sports psycho babble being thrown out there.

far more outlandish than the steelers playing on a cow pasture which looks suprisingly good for this late in the season.

I'm dying to know where you get your info from. Is it the same source that lists the countless 8-8 teams that made it to the super bowl?

I mean really, 90% of kickers were nearly suicidal in high school? I never thought it would be a fraction over 85%.

The things you learn on a message board.

Hey, kickers have it rough.

Adam Sandler wrote a song about it. And the Steelers were in the video.

Reed certainly wasn't the reason we lost last night but he certainly contributed to it. Those onside kicks finally did me in. I can't support him any more. And to come out and say we don't know what he has to put up with because of poor field conditions, long snappers, holders is absurd. That 26 yarder was snapped and held perfectly. $28 mill a year and that is the best this joker can come up with. Any player who cannpt handle criticism when he deserves it can take a freakin hike.

Thats just me being comical, but sports players that are commit suicide other than any other kids on teams in highschool are soccer players and kickers on football teams. Its the truth, I don't feel like looking it up, you can research it yourself.

This is the type of shit that causes people to kill themselves. I love football but I hate how a lot of fans are just big bullies and thinks everything can be solved if you just stop being a wussy. We'd have a lot less violence in this country if people like you didn't exist.

Maybe it's time for people like you to stop treating pro athletes like helpless little babies. Here's an idea, stop keeping score. That way everybody's a winner and their feel bads won't get hurt when they screw the pooch.

All this year has done is prove that Reed isnt worth the 4 mil per he was looking for. Maybe its his way of getting back at them.

I'm not treating anyone like anything, so he makes money and he shouldn't be a baby, it doesn't matter, psycologically people who are treated differently because they are famous have problems... go take a sociology or psycology class... the shit these people go through is really bad. Ever wonder why they have self destructive behavior? Its not because they are just crazy stupid drunks, its because we, the fans totally **** up their life. As someone who had something similar happen to him, though I'm not famous, I had a lot of people turn on me for a mistake, its a shitty feeling, leave the dude a lot, yea he sucks, deal with it, but it pisses me off that people pretty much go up to him and insult him to his face, most of them are people like you, but his friends do it too. Maybe you'd know what it was like if you had friends.
