How bout Hartley?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Good game, but the scars are still there from Atl and Ariz. The short misses vs Sea & TB didn't hurt us, but... I think the only reason he is still here is that SP wants some stability. Guarantee that ...

Maybe all the dissing and questioning of Hartley we did helped. I say we keep it up, see if it works again!

Since the NFl has no minor league like Baseball, can we send him to the CFL or Arena Football until he is consistent again?


He leaves me with the feeling that is similar to driving a car that has a seat belt that sometimes works and some times does not....

He's a young kicker, what is he 24. Most of the vet kickers have 10-15 yrs experience and they still miss random easy kicks. He started out shaky but he's back on the wagon now. It would be great to see him kick the game winner against Atlanta but we will have a 20pt lead in the 4th.

He's still with the Saints because SP knows a helluva lot more about football and the personnel available than we do

I posted a thread about what I have figured out...

With 10 attempts away and 8 attempts st home, when he is 90% for away games, and 50% in The Super Dome.... There is a glaring discrepancy in his consistency based on location.

All of his other situational 2010 stats vary no more than 25%... Be it score margin, distance, game qtr.... The only explanation is this guy has issues kicking at home. Why he has problems at home I have no idea but he does.

Its like Devery, I guess. You ever notice, you cant throw a pass straight to Devery's hands, or he'll drop it...

... but if he's upside down falling backwards with the ball coming to his knees, while two safeties are hitting him.... its a catch!

I actually agree with you here Magic, at least on Harper. Gonzalez was obviously gunning for him last game, and he didn't handle it well.
