Jeff Reed is known for being one of the most accurate kickers in the league in one of the hardest venues to kick in.
Recently Reed has been in the news for being disappointed that he hasn’t received a contract extension from the Steelers yet.
I personally believe that they should sign Reed to a deal, however he didn’t make a strong case for himself with his performance this weekend versus the Falcons.
Reed ended the game 3-5 in field goals for the game which is not bad considering one of the misses was a 55 yard field goal.
However it was Reed’s second miss of the game that was the problem.
With under a minute to go, the Steelers set up for a 40 yard field goal which could have won the game in regulation except for the fact that Reed missed it.
Reed is one of the best field goal kickers in the league, however, a miss like that is unacceptable and doesn’t do much for his bid for a new contract.
