I dont know how old Gary is but who knows maybe he still has some leg left in him...
    How about Morten Andersen?? I think he soon retire if no one give him the call. Nah maybe it's just because he is danish....

    Morten in black and gold.. hmmm

    I don't know the market for kickers right now, but there should be some solid ones! It used to..

    Could try Tyler Mehlhaff http://www.rotoworld.com/Content/pla...rt=NFL&id=4922

    This could be bad news if Jeff misses 4-5 weeks. He is money in the bank. I wouldn't mind seeing them bring in another punter for a check out during hte byweek either.

    When it rains it pours........

    Hopefully Jeff will heal up pretty quick and be back in time for the Giants. I just hope that we don't have any game winnign or game tying field goal situations while he is gone.

    We are both from Denmark, so i guees we should both have a "thing" about Morten Andersen, but honestly, hes time is up, and he would def. not do to well in Steelers. He is to old, and hes leg is not strong enough anymore to really contribute. What is golden about Reed is, that we can rely on him from almost any given fair distance, in pretty much all kind of weather. We couldnt with Morten. Also, i don't really think Morten would want to go and play 1-2 months and then get benched, seeing that he has alot of stuff going on atm, so if he were to step in for a team it would be full time, and not just till Reed returns. Hands down, that is not a competition anymore :P

    Instead, lets make Morten a punter! We sure as hell could need a new one, like Eagles punter. Man that guy is scary, avg'ing almost 50yard a kick against washington, and they had and avg on like 5 yards on the return.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    U've got that right. Morten Andersen is done and not a safe investment when it comes to 45 plus yards field goals and like you just said to my comment, he might not even think about a job for only 2 months and then spending time on the bench when Reed is ready again after his injury. It was a danish hype, because of my love for him as a player and a true legend who only deserves to end his career somewhere in New Orleans.

    I rather pick Reed any day over Morten A.
    By the way great to talk to a danish citizens!

    According to this link today and article in the Post Gazette today from Ed Bouchette Jeff Reed is expected to be okay and ready to kick in time for the Bengals game on October 19th. Boy this is definitely a relief and very very great news to hear.

    Yeah I just saw this in one of my alerts, this is great news and fortunately it happened just before the bye or we might have been in trouble for a couple weeks.
