And he wants to be one of the highest paid kickers in the league!!


Could have sealed the game for us and he failed!! Bye Bye Jeff Reed.

Reed did however make a 52 (or 53?) yarder and a 46 yarder from the other end, while the Bengals kicker missed both of his. Could have been worse.

Constantly kicking to the 15 and teams are running us back to the 35, 40, 45 ALL the time. We are spotting great field position way too much. This is my main problem with Reed.

I just wished he made that last field goal and made it tougher on the Bungles to comeback... It would have been the clincher forcing them to make costly mistakes in the end...

What he said. There is exactly one kicker in the HoF, and the thought that Reed would make it two is, well... a deluded homerism.

As for Adam Vinatieri missing chip shots during his SB years with the Patriots, once again, no. He won Superbowl XXXVI with his leg, and that regular season he made all but one kick under 40 yards (but it was over 30 yards) including all of his kicks under 30. He missed exactly one kick under 30 yards his next SB season, 2003. And he was almost perfect the following season, 2004, missing only a few long kicks (over 40 yards).

Lionslicer, do you understand that words mean things? Do you think about the words that come out of your mouth (or out of your keyboard) beforehand? Just a tip: when you make claims of fact, it is immensely helpful if what you are claiming is actually true.
He still had one of the lowest accuracy of kicks made during the season, I don't care where they came from.
He also doesn't atempt field goals over 51 yards, they usually have the field goal specialist do those, he doesn't have a pro leg.

I don't think Reed is good, but Patriot fans wanted to kill Adam, but he made a superbowl winning kick, but they still released him in 2005 after not making a single kick over 50 yards. Immagine if Reed kicked a superbowl winning field goal, does everyone still hate him? No.


Adam also missed 5 field goals under 40 yards in 2003, missed 5 field goals in 2001 between 40-49 yards. 2002 and 2004 were good seasons, but he didn't have any game winning field goals in the playoffs those years.

From 1996 to 2000 his average accuracy was 80 percent, missing an average of 7-8 field goals a year.
His average for his entire career is 82%, thats exactly the same as Jeff Reed

Adam also isn't perfect in the post season as Reed is.

But I don't know anything, I'm just a stupid mindless zombie...

He looked overweight and drunk out there.........His mechanics on that 46 yarder were way off......He kicked it straight,but he lined it up wrong...........

Kickers are like golfers.....They get into funkssometimes.......He just needs to get rid of the bad juju............He be fine.........

As for Reed, he's got 8 more games and possibly the playoffs to prove he still wants to be this team's kicker.Right now I'd say it aint looking too good.
he'd have to make 90+% of his kicks from here on out and have several clutch ones as well to even have a shot at making the team again.

The guy is way too nutty and I seriously doubt he'll take the kind of money we'll be willing to pay him, he wants way too much and is getting more than he deserves as is with the franchise tag.

Two Words: Kai Forbath.

I watch a bit of the UCLA games and this kid really has a great leg, decent make % out of 50 but good enough, and has shown himself to be clutch.

Snag him in the 4th or 5th, and buh bye Jeff Reed.

Help. The sky is falling. Pick a field goal kicker in the first round next year. But I seriously think Reed is totally losing it. And he doesn't really seem to care.

I second this thought. Kai should be the first kicker drafted in 2011.
