The damn exploded and the reservoir drained all over us when we couldn't make a 45 yarder against Chicago with the same kicker 3 years ago. His leg is weaker now. I'd go with Hartley and bring Carney back (or Morten) in a pinch. Add another OL spot to the roster if we have an expendable spot.

boonedocksaint just let it go man. Heres a qoute from wikipedia

"With the loss, the Saints fell to 7-8 on the season and were eliminated from contention for the 2003 NFL playoffs. Even if the Saints had improbably won in overtime, they would have been eliminated from the playoffs, as the Dallas Cowboys won their tenth game of the season that day (up from 9, the highest possible number of wins the Saints could have had had they won) and the Seahawks eventually won ten games to gain a wild card.

Dude, NEVER EVER EVER liken the worst terrorist attack in United States history in which over 1,000 were killed to a missed extra point during a simple little football game. NEVER EVER EVER!

River City Relay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

thanks for looking that up for me. i haven't forgotten that part, either. that's not the point. the point is i dont like carney. i have held a grudge since that day. and guess what? i'll never like gramatica either for missing the fg last year against denver! (that and all the other kicks he missed)

hartley hasn't f'ed up yet and missed big kicks, so, he deserves a shot! not some over-the-hill dude w/ no leg strength who's missed countless big fg's and and extra point!

Do you guys think Payton keeps two kickers and waive someone else?

Carney hasn't missed countless big FG's. He's one of the best clutch kickers to ever kick in the NFL.

Re: Saints have until next week to decide on kicker Garrett Hartley's status

Yeah, I think the Saints probably need to stick with Carney. I have no idea how the Saints can keep both kickers. What position do you subtract from to make room? I am not sure if you can keep another kicker around for 45 yard plus field goal attempts. Maybe for the short term the Saints can keep both, but we all know an injury is going to hit and that roster spot will be needed. I just don't know at this point...
