Default Oh No!!!!!!!!!!! Kicker

They just said the Steelers new kicker was struggling in pregame sending kicks way off the mark.

I was looking at him and he sucks. Once the kick gets over 30 yards, he is terrible...and over 40 (40-49) he misses about a quarter.

I just added him to my fantasy team when I found out today Reed was gone (I've been busy). I am about to drop him now.

I know Reed messed up in Atlanta but last week, he DID slip.

I know he had some off field issues, a high contract and an attitude...but STILL...the Steelers should have kept him for the rest of the season. He was money on kicks 46 yards and less.

I just looked and in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 seasons, Reed had 82 kicks 49 yards or less. He only missed 6. (76/82)

This has been a bad year for him. So far he has missed 5 kicks 49 yards or less.

He takes a really big wind up before his kicks on extra points, so I assume he'll do the same on field goals. He has a really big chance of getting blocked, plus he's taking a big wind up just to kick it the same distance as Reed did with a very short wind up.
Just an observation, I haven't seen a steeler field goal blocked in years, probably before Ben got there.

Seemed to have a case of the fades on the extra points...good thing he wasnt kicking FGs. No upside to releasing Reed for this guy.

Yea, I noticed that as well. He was slicing it pretty bad. I hope that's not what we'll see when he's kicking a FG because he'll be missing 30 yarders with that much push to the right.
