What would happen if an airline pilot, manually flying a landing, in let's say a 737, made a bad landing and landed noticeably off center? Would he be reprimanded?

A centerline deviation in and of itself won't get someone fired. But hard landings aren't good. It all depends on the circumstances and if there was any damage and whether it was sufficient enough to be written up as such.

As long as the pilot safely lands the airplane on the runway with out causing damage or injuries, what is the problem? Crosswinds can cause a lot of havoc on landings.

For run of the mill cruddy landings, nothing happens except a little embarassment... and bruises from the beating the CA might give the FO!

You're only in trouble unless you significantly deviate from SOP or if you break the ship... and that means both crew members. Both the FO and CA are accountable for flight safety in all phases of flight.

Well, if your landing is as bad as this, you WILL be in trouble :

Is a bad landing (like I described) common? I have never experienced one, and I have traveled a good bit.

If it's noticeable that the rear fuselage is not fully attached to the forward fuselage, or pointing in a slightly different direction, then it's quite likely that the crew will be invited for tea and biccies with the chief pilot and retirement plans would probably form a large part of the conversation.
