Default This loss is on Reed

I've always been a big Reed supporter....I was 110% behind giving him the extention....But when you miss 2 potentially game winning field goals....it makes me wonder if he's our future after all.

Its his only job....kick the ball thru the posts...Yes, the field was in bad shape...but he's played at Heinz, so thats nothing new....No excuses.

What do ya'll think?

Tomlin shouldn't have put him in that situation. We should have gone for it on 4th down.

Point is why should we have HAD to go for it on 4th down? Its a 43 yarder...thats not a challenge for a professional kicker is it?

I agree stuff happens I didnt think we would go 16-0 any way. Lets Not forget Reed made 2 FG's last week including the game winner in OT. How soon we forget from hero to goat in one week (LOL)

I guess the Titans felt this way last week with their kicker then.

Robbie Gould is used to kicking in the rain and muck at Soldiers Field. I'm not making excuses for Reed's misses, but I call it as I see it.

I agree.

He's not worth the money he asked for.

He's still a good kicker that I trust completely.

But today, he was the primary reason that we lost.
