Hartley WHO?!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I still can't wrap my head around that miss against the Falclowns. I guess now I understand why Scott Fujita referred to him as "our fat punk kicker." Let's not forget, he missed not one, but two key field goals ...

Let's not forget, he missed not one, but two key field goals against the Vikings last season. That could have easily swung the game the other direction.

So Kasay is 42. It's a LEG. I mean how do you wear out a LEG?

Our young stud pulled a leg muscle, or whatever, swinging his LEG.

But it's just banter. Front office will decide for us, and I'm sure they have our best interest as fans in mind.

Funny thing is Hartley gets a ring if we get a ring this year, right?

i love Hartley and I think it would be incredibly stupid not to resign him. he is one of the most promising young kickers in the leauge and he has on heck of a leg.

Hartley is under contract. He will be back next year.

Also if we are going to keep using the missed ATL kick against Hartley as the reason why we had to go to Seattle last year then we need to use the Brees' int in the Tampa game this year at the end when he had a wide open Meachem in the middle of the endzone as a reason why we are going to frisco instead of them coming to NOLA and I think that is very foolish.

Signed a 5-year contract in March 2010.

Like biloxi-indian already stated: Hartley has a contract until 2016, which will undoubtedly keep him as the kicker next season.

I don't know how much Kasay is getting for the season, but his Panthers contact would have payed him 2M/season until 2013, while Hartley will "only" be making 650K next season, increasing to 910K in 2015.

The kid missed some kicks but he made the biggest kicks of his life in the 2009-2010 season. With out him, who knows what might have been? He's a good kicker.

Let's not forget who sent us to the superbowl. I had my doubts about Kasey but he has proven me wrong but we need a young kicker for next year. In Hartley I trust!
