Carney MUST Go

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm sorry, I love the old dude, but when the coach doesn't have faith in you to make a kick from 49 yds and 48 yds respectively in the 4th quarter of an INDOOR game that is extremely tight, then ...

Carney MUST Go

I'm sorry, I love the old dude, but when the coach doesn't have faith in you to make a kick from 49 yds and 48 yds respectively in the 4th quarter of an INDOOR game that is extremely tight, then you have no reason to be on the team. He has to go.
Hartley went 13-13 for us last year at the end of the season and has the leg to make the long kick. We are wasting a roster spot and with our injury depleted defense that is just unacceptable.

Re: Carney MUST Go

I'm not sure it was because SP didn't have faith in Carney. I think that it was more of SP doing what SP does.

Sounds a lot like what the Patriots fans are probably saying about another dubious non kick decision last night. We just happened to be playing a crappy team. We would need that kick against a good team and Carney is just not that good. He has missed two extra points and three or four field goals this year. Tell me Hartley couldn't have matched that performance. Two kickers on the team is dumb.

Oh I wasn't arguing the fact that we only need one kicker on this team. Just saying that I think SP would have gone for that 4th regardless of who the kicker was at the time.

And that Belichick call was just insane. They were far into their own side of the field.

Re: Carney MUST Go

I couldn't agree more - if Carney doesn't have the range then let him go.

Re: Carney MUST Go

Two kickers... really 3

Carney - Field Goals & PATs
Hartley - has he kicked in the Reagular Season
Morestead - KO & Punter

Not sure who actually handled the KO's in yesterdays game but some of them were really short...

Can Morestead handle the FGs & PATs...would free up 2 roster spots and one ACTIVE

Oh Really? What about if we had Morten Anderson in his prime? Would SP have not kicked both of those 4th quarter field goals from inside 50 yds then?

Re: Carney MUST Go

When we didn't go for that last field goal and then Morestead punted that ball through the back of the end zone I thought I was gonna throw a damn brick through the TV.
