Default Do you want Jeff Reed back in 10?

In a sense you could make the case that his poor game in Chicago set in motion the wheels of negativity that have been rolling over this team ever since. And I know he's as poor of kickoff man is there is in the league. And yes his tackling on kickoffs is a disaster. But all that said I still want Reed back in 2010. Since the debacle in Chicago, Reed hasn't missed a field goal attempt inside of 50 yards. Pretty good for someone who plays half his games in Heinz.

He had 1 bad game. He's a clutch performer and I'd hate to lose him despite the off field problems.

Id like him back, but one more off-field incident and he should get the boot. I dont think it's gonna happen though, we tried negotiating a contract, and his agent thinks he's not being offered nearly enough money...

for his ability to kick at Hienz Field, I would love him back. Back the fact he can't put the ball into the endzone...and the fact that he keeps getting into off-feild incidents make me hesitant.

At this point, I'd really like to look at moving on to another kicker. Reed has done a good job for us, but his lack of distance on kickoffs is really an issue and he doesn't have great range for field goals either.

I would like to have him back because he is a clutch 99% of the time. I just wish we had someone who could kick off deeper.

Bring Reed back and cut Logan. Bring in a kick off specialist who can kick it into the end zone every time. I think Reed gets one there once every other game which is unacceptable.

NO!! I watch high school kids get better distance on kickoffs. Plus he's only money inside 40 yards. Between 40-50 he's average, and beyond 50 I have no confidence at all. The kicking at Heinz Field thing is a myth that was born under "Merry Kris-Miss Brown". Unless the field is a mudhole on a particular day there isn't anything any more negative in kicking in Heinz vs any other outdoor northern stadium. We just had a bad kicker at the beginning of Heinz Field that started that whole nonsense.

I want somebody who can get better distance on kickoffs. IMO, you can find another guy that can be money inside the 40 like paper towel boy.
