Doug Brien (born November 24, 1970) was an American football placekicker. He has played for the New York Jets, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, and San Francisco 49ers, and was picked in the 3rd round of the 1994 NFL Draft by San Francisco out of University of California, Berkeley. He is most well-known for ripping Jets fans hearts, by missing two crucial, potential game-winning field goal attempts in the final two minutes of the New York Jets' 2005 AFC divisional playoff game with the Pittsburgh Steelers. If he were to make one, it would have sent the Jets to the AFC Championship against the New England Patriots. He was released by the team a couple of months after the game, but later signed by the Chicago Bears, from who he was released from later on in the 2005 season.
As a rookie, Brien won a Super Bowl ring with the 49ers after their 49-26 victory over the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX.
