This is an understatement. Jeff will pick it back up. There were numerous things that killed us yesterday (which I really don't want to mention again) but what's done is done. I believe this bye week will get us back on track.

You know, it's always that second day where I get pissed over the game. We had Baltimore right where we wanted them and I'm already looking forward to our re-match to show those frauds who owns.

With that said, people like to blame Jeff Reed. Fine.

But it's our offense who gets paid even MORE millions to put the ball in the endzone. The Defense gave the offense 2 turnovers in the Ravens end of the field and we came out with a whopping 2 yards of offense and 0 points. Those field goals weren't extra points. I hate when people blame Reed, he did his part but if we score like we're supposed to do, we don't have to be worrying about Reed kicking 50 yarders in the wind, nevermind at the open end of the end zone. We shot ourselves in the foot as a team.

I take more issue with the fact that he had to attempt those long field goals after the incredible field position the defense gave the offense.

One drive started at the Baltimore 27 and one at the 33... and both were three and outs (FG attempts)...

Yeah, that's what pissed me off too, especially the first one that would have been an easier 41 yard attempt had Batch not taken an 8 yard sack on 3rd down. WTF. Batch needed to be smarter there and throw the ball away.

Jeff Reed comming into this game was the number 1 kicker in the NFL. I know right? Even after 2 misses in the Falcans game. Kickers aren't perfect, even kickers who went perfect during the season screwed up in the post season. Kicker, like quarterbacks, will lose the game for a team... No matter how many times Ben has thrown a last minute interception, Steeler fans have stayed behind him as he threw last minute touchdowns. Reed will lose some games, but he's the kicker for atleast the rest of this season, so stick with him, he'll pull the team through some victories too.

Reed has been less than flawless so far this season but the offense couldn't convert the opportunities that the defense gave them earlier in the game. Reed isn't the only reason we lost yesterday. A 49yds FG in the open end of Heinz Field is no gimme.
This being said, I think he can k*ss goodbye to a long term contract.
