Ya have to admit, the second one looked like he kicked it with his knee! My wife said the same thing, maybe he's hung over.

I love how most of the people think we cant find a replacement for him.He's so clutch that most of his fan would say.Truth is he cost us more games that he's won us lately.Yes it's tough to kick in heinz field and yes he was very solid for us but truth is he demands top dollars and doesnt get the job done since last year.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have found a kicker in december I think last year or 2 years ago(Connor Barth) and is apparently very solid so why not us ? I say we draft one next year and invite 1 or 2 in camp.We keep one on Practice Squad and when ready we cut ties with Reed.

I don't think it will happen, but I would be fine if we can bring a new kicker during the bye weeks and let him go... not making field goals you need to make in a division game nonetheless is a problem...

I hope he straightens up though and make them if we do indeed keep him.

Kickers are like cars. Nobody seems to notice when they perform well, but if they break down even once all of the sudden they need replaced.

He will certainly be less arogant now when it comes to is new contract. If he really wants to leave, Bye...he's a kicker.

granted those 2 fg's he missed weren't chip shots by any means, but this guy is asking to be one of the highest paid kickers in the league. If he wants that, he better be clutch or kiss his ass goodbye
agreed, if he wants to be paid as one of the best he needs to play as one of the best and he isnt anywere near that

the kicker can be blamed all you want, but he wouldn't even be out there if the Steelers converted more. you can place the blame on anyone you want, but that won't negate the loss. Jeff Reed is a good kicker. not amazing, but good. Cundiff missed it too and I'm sure a lot of other kickers have as well. I agree about the pricing, though. if he wants top dollar he better be a god.

and agreed with

I wish Batch could have avoided that 7 yard sack that preceeded the one missed field goal. Ben gets crucified for losing field position like that all the time, I know CB is a back-up, but he's a veteran, you almost knew it was going to end up as a one score game, that lost 7 yards was huge.

Yeah right because there's all kinds of unemployed kickers who can come into Heinz and do a better job than Reed.
