How bout Hartley?
 
Think he kicked his career longest this game. Gotta give him props for the kicks.

He still has this look like, "geezus, I hope I don't miss," and "holy sh--, I just made it."

I'm no less nervous than I was before w/him. And, I STILL do not understand why Morstead isn't kicking off.

As I have stated in other posts, doesn't have a link but, I read that Morstead does not kick off because of the injury he had to his groin. The coaching doesn not want to risk aggravating the injury. And seeing him BOOM that 64yd punt I can se why.

Thought Hartley did a good job today, days like this is why I'm so high on him. He has a tremendous leg and I feel pretty confident he will just gett better and more consistant.

Hartley is clutch. His weakness is that if the weight of the world isn't on his shoulders, he gets lost.

He'll get better.

Interesting fact from the Ap game article: Hartley, Daniel, and the new LS all went to Southlake Carroll, just south of the stadium and in the town where payton lived while with the cowboys. So it goes from the hand of one assumed Cowboys fan, into the hands of another, off the foot of another, 50 yards through the goalpost. pretty cool.

An enigma

I've been on the "ax Hartley" wagon myself, but I can happily admit.

This, aside from the NFC Championship, was the game of his career.

He was nails on everything, and his kickoffs were deeper, and better than anything I've ever seen him do.

The scariest play of the game to me was his extra point after Lance's TD, and he nailed it. His kicks were flat-out pretty, and he lost that knuckleball look his kicks have always had in the past.

Maybe be just needs more national spotlight, and extra pressure.

Superb game, Garrett. Bravo!!!!

The overtime chip-shot kick against Atl wasn't weight enough?

That was the joke in my house last night!! He's always just as surprised as the rest of us when he makes it! But by god, he did what he gets paid to do yesterday! Thank you Hartley!
