I like Bell. But I when can we use the guy? I mean we already are deep at RB. Ivory is still supposed to come back too. I hope we can keep him.

Wow! We should consider ourselves fortunate. I'm really surprised somebody didn't snatch him up.

Has anyone else noticed how nice it is when Kasay kicks? Not the fact that his kicks split the uprights, so much as they don't hook like a bad golf shot!!
Hartley makes me nervous as hell also, he did kick us into the super bowl though...and that has gone a long way with me.

Did anyone ever say exactly what was wrong with Hartley? All I ever heard was a hip injury?

Kickers are a dime a dozen. GOOD kickers aren't. Hartley is going to be a good kicker in the NFL for a lot of years. I don't think we're going to send him packing.

The man owns a Superbowl record for kicks over 40 yds. He missed time because of a 4 game suspension for adderol which wasn't very bright . He's good and is even going to kick better with time.
