Anyone MISS Hartley?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Have to say, I don't. Althought Kasay hasn't hit all of them, he is getting our attention, especially from long range! I never forgave #5 for some of his misgivings last year when it absolutely had to go through. Alaska...

I do. I trust Hartly more for the longer kicks.

I'm surprised that no one is Yelling about Kasey's missed kicks as Much as they did with Hartley.

So far Kasey is 22 out of 27 5 missed so far this season.
Hartley's last year total was 20 of 25 5 missed.


That being said Kasey has filled in nicely but will not be back if Hartley is Healthy.

I think Ms. Hartley is getting kinda old but IDK she probably knows a thing or two.

Funny how timing is everything. Hartley only missed 5 field goals all of last year and Kasay has missed 5 field goals so far this year but Hartley is the goat because of the timing when he missed. Hartley is still the future not a 42 year old kicker. Kasay did miss one Sunday that could have prevented OT.

I know one thing. If that squirrel of a 50+ yarder Kasay made against the Clowns had missed low and to the right (which it nearly did) this thread would only exist in an alternate universe.

Get well and get right Hartley. Kasay will hold the fort 'til you return young man.

I thought it was funny how Kasey hit the field goal to beat Atlanta this year, and Hartley's miss in the same game cost us dearly last year. They said Kasey was done past 40 yards, Ha Ha.

If the Falcons had gone ahead and won in overtime last Sunday, would you guys be skinning Kasey alive for missing a field goal, the same way Hartley was beat up last year? That one field goal Kasey missed would have meant a win in regulation, not a fight to the death in overtime. I know what you're going to say, "But Hartley missed one when it really counted and it cost us the game and it cost us the division championship". It was the second game of the season. All field goals, as well as any score, really count, no matter what part of the game or what part of the season it is made (or not made). Personally, I think Hartley will do a fine job. Every kicker is going to miss a few field goals. That's just the way it is. I havn't seen a kicker yet that has hit 100% of his field goal attempts throughout his whole career. If we would have lost that game last Sunday, I would have put most of the blame on the defense, not Kasey. Just like I don't completely blame Hartley for missing that field goal last year. I'm sure I'm in the minority though.

Now Alabama is another story. Their kicker missed 4 field goals in that game against LSU. I would have roasted is a**! LOL

It would be different if Hartley had missed from the same area as Kasey, but Hartley's miss was from like 25 yards, that was my issue. Hartley will forever be in my heart for the NFC kick which was AWESOME. It's nice to have the consistency Kasey has given this year.
