The life of a kicker can no doubt be a despondent one, and in a postgame media scene that was almost entirely focused on Scobee, he had to sit there and face the harsh reality.
"I wanted to redeem myself, but I didn't get it," he said. "I understand it. I just have to move on."
"I feel like I let the team down. It's a bad feeling. It was a hard-fought game on both sides. I wish I had been able to come through, but it just wasn't my night."
And on whether or not he'll lose his job:
"I can't think about that stuff," he said. "I just have to let it play out."
Fervent watchers of the show Hard Knocks remember Scobee's painfully sheepish rookie year in Jacksonville and how many kicks he missed in the preseason at the beginning of his tenure. After a decade there, things got easier and he eventually earned a captain's "C."
Will Scobee get the time he needs to acclimate to Heinz Field? Like Scobee said, he can't think about that stuff.
