He missed one FG last night. No one has seen the replay on it yet. Some implies multiple misses. From what I remember he was pretty clutch last year.

His plant foot slipped, from what I saw.

Jeff has been in a slump. He batter shake it off soon. We don't need him to do a Vanderjett for us. At least he is better than Chris Brown.

I've loved Reed as our kicker. He's made some really money kicks from 40+ when the pressure's been on in the last 2 years, and in a home stadium that's very unfriendly to kickers. Conditions were terrible on Thursday, utterly saturated. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Start over next week, Jeff.

For me, I can't put my faith in Jeff. He isn't very solid. He may come through in the clutch sometimes. But, I can remember a lot of times when we lost because of him missing field goals.

Talking Re: Jeff Reed?

I think he'll be fine this season. The grass was real wet from the high humidity the other night. But if kickers keep missing we can just blame it on the new commish's signature on the ball. Like Madden said, it's heavier than Tagliabue's signature. LOL

He missed one late in the preseason as well.

I'm not very concerned about it yet.

But I sure would like to see him consistently kick the ball deeper for regular kickoffs. That's never been his strong point.

Here we go.

Here is Reed's field goal stats since he has been our kicker.

2002-17/19
2003-23/32
2004-28/33
2005-24/29
2006-0/1

He has made 81 percent of his kicks and usually makes all of his kicks at Heinz Field. So I'm very confident in Jeff. The only alarming thing to me about Jeff is last year his long was only 44 yards.

Awww c'mon shevdog - he missed ONE FG. It's not the end of the world! Jeff Reed comes through for us 9-1/2 times out of 10 - no worries here.
