How has Carney been for you guys?

He doesn't have SP's confidence, so I don't know why we are not going with Hartley.

The FG percentage isn't great, and doesn't include the 4th downs we went for bc Payton didn't have confidence Carney would make it.
The EP against MIA could have been the difference in the game if we don't get the pick 6 at the end.

Bottom line, we are on the 33 facing a 4th and 10, down by 2 near the end of the game---who do you want kicking? I'll take Hartley

We all know that he will & still is concidered one of the most accurate kicker's of all time. Yes, he is get'n much older & has lost a step or two, but is still a pretty decent kicker right now.
Now, this is how i feel... He has been missing quit a bit more field goal's the last few year's & even worse (PAT's) <~~ That bother's me alot.
I have all the respect in the world for him & alway's will, but i honestly believe he needs to move on with life. He's gotten older & is no longer a spring chicken.
{{Personally}}, i'd like for (Hartley) to be put back in as our #1 man & to start every game from here on out. Hartley is special & extremely blessed with great kicking skill's. Im pretty sure any & everyone would agree with me on that... He is the future of our kicking game & will continue to be for many year's to come!!!

I tip my hat off to (Carney) for everything he's done to help our team win games. Go ahead, retire & spend the rest of your wonderful life with ur family. You have NOTHING more to prove... Thanx for everything you have done for our team & our city...
{{GOD BLESS YOU CARNEY & MAY HE BE WITH YOU NOW & FOREVER}}!!!

He'll probably retire this year. So Payton won't have to stress over what to do next year. The guy's been money up till recently. The only thing I can figure is he must look good in practice.

I cringe every time he kicks a field goal or extra point... definitely a bad thing.

Yeah he does ...

Carney's kicks in the last game weren't things of beauty ... good thing the games aren't that close ..... it could cost us in the future ... he's probably here to mentor the young kid as Morten was mentored when he first came in the league.
