    Reed wins award...

    PITTSBURGH – As Jeff Reed was kicking a 46-yard field goal to win Monday night’s game in overtime, the referee blew the play dead because the Baltimore coach called a late timeout.



    Undaunted, Reed waited through the timeout and kicked another 46-yarder for the game-winner. As he jogged off the field, his coach, Mike Tomlin, said, “You can’t freeze a psychopath!”

    It was the seventh game-winning field goal of Reed’s career, a career that’s becoming one of the greatest of any Steelers kicker. A perfect 7-for-7 this season, Reed has made 82.6 percent of his career kicks. If Reed makes his next two kicks, he’ll pass Norm Johnson for first place on the Steelers’ all-time accuracy list.

    For his work Monday night, Reed was named the AFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week. That’s not too bad for a psychopath.

    “Yeah, I guess he did say that,” Reed said of his coach. “He just knows that I live for those opportunities, and as a kicker you should. How many times do you actually get to pull your team through something?”

    What did Reed think of Baltimore’s late timeout?

    “The whistle blew as I was swinging through the ball,” he said. “I don’t agree with that. That’s not icing the kicker. I don’t even think they got the timeout in. But according to the rules they get the timeout and I have to kick it again. So I did.

    It's so hard to make a long FG like that a second time in a row when they blow the whistle for a timeout just before the ball get snapped. Jeff even said he was alittle worried on that 2nd one because it hooked but fortunately just made it through. Reed is money, Im sure glad he's on our side.

    It's interesting how much of a fan favorite Jeff is with the city and all of us around the world who follow the Steelers with such a passion. The dude is a hard worker, he came literally out of nowhere on that cold, rainy day at Heinz Field when Cowher worked him out along with the others. He's a scrapper. I like how he was able to fight through the tough times and sooner or later is going to set the record at Heinz Field with a 60 yd kick,
