07:54 AM ET 11.16 | There was a time Jeff Reed, who has taken the high road in not knocking Heinz Field as a poor place to kick, might have bit his tongue. "I'm not one to make excuses," Reed said. "I'll take the credit for the miss. It was a great snap, a great hold, great protection. ... If you've played any kind of sports in your life, you realize that what we play on is not very good turf." ... [Regarding the fans:] "If you're not perfect in this city, man, then you're going to hear about it. It's been like that for nine years, and why would they stop now?"
