The Onside Kick

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Why in the world did they have Hartley do it when Morstead was the one who kicked it in the SB last year? That just boggles my mind....

Morestead is battling an injury ... didn't you notice that Hartley started kicking off as well? We were injured all around ... No excuses though --- that game shouldn't have even been close enough to warrant an on-side kick regardless of who was doing it!

I was wondering if that was the reason. After getting hit on our first punt of the game.

I still call BS on that Morestead hit. Pushed into him, thrown into him, doesn't make a difference. It was wrong and he was hurt. But I still believe that Hartley could do an onside kick. Don't we remember all those easy field goals he has missed this year? Kick it to the left like he does so well...

No excuses huh? That's all I've seen from ya'll about this loss, whining about injuries and the like. Really just the Aints living up to their namesake.

Hate to say it, but I don't ever remember seeing an onside kick that bad, except in video games.

How's it feel for our defense who gave up 41 points to the 'Hawks yesterday completely dominate your offense in week 14? And if you don't remember: Turner had 17 carries for 48 yards, Ryan had 148 yards and Fraud White was held to 43 yards on 3 catches and the only offensive TD. In your house where y'all could not lose, might I add.

That must instill a lot of confidence...

Well we already beat the Hawks once(in their dome even, a feat ya'll couldn't accomplish) so when they come to our house I'm not worried. You can keep clinging onto that meaningless week 14 win though cuz were still the NFC south champs and oh yeah were still alive in the playoffs.

LMAO!!! What loser would come to our boards after we turned them out to talk smack? All those sad little faces in the GA Dome that night.
Whatever...
