I'd like to know the details of that contract. Kasay made this season so easy to watch.

Lest me not forget after a superb 2009 season, in 2010 it was a kick by kick heart attack. Lets not forget the missed extra points.

Possibly could be Hartley as kicker and Kasay as kicking coach. If Hartley misses 1 field goal within 50 or 1 extra point, we can deactivate him and insert Kasay.

He signed the new 5-year contract in 2010, which was worth $10.3M with a signing bonus of $3M with an average yearly salary of $2.1M.

His cap hit for next season is $1.7M and with that figure he is cheaper than what at least Carolina were paying Kasay when he was with them, but Kasay's current contract was undisclosed, so I don't know what the Saints were paying him.

IMO, Hartley's injury wasn't season-ending; the Saints didn't have the time or roster space to tie up waiting for him to heal.

The Saints FO probably knew there were only a few FA quality kickers left and pulled the trigger putting Hartley on IR so they could sign Kasay.

Hartley stills owns a Superbowl record for kicks over 40 in a Superbowl.........he might get a long look at camp.
Kasay made this season more viewer friendly with fewer heart attacks. As a veteran he looks the part.

In the beginning of the Payton era there were always problems with the kickers --> looks pointedly in the direction of special teams coach Greg McMahon <--- and Hartley was supposed to be the solution to that, hand-picked to solve the kicking woes once and for all. Actually, even before Payton got here the Saints kickers were a mess. Like him or not, Hartley IS the intended solution to that. I think it's going to be Hartley (with Kasay on speed dial), and my advice is for people to stop stressing out about it -- the guy is numerically a very reliable kicker. People REALLY need to let that one Falcons game go -- put it in the rearview mirror. It's been talked about a million times, there were TONS of people at fault in that game, it should never have even been in overtime in the first place...Ivory fumbled, Drew threw a really dumb INT, Pierre Thomas broke his freaking ankle..it was not just the one kick that lost it.

It will be Hartley, and do you want to know why? Because he deserves to be here...

I mean...

Who misses a season because he hurt himself kicking a field goal??????

Dempsey lost half his foot and showed up next week and kicked a 63 yarder for Christ's sake!!!

At least I think that's how it went...

I can honestly say I didnt cringe nearly as much this year in FG situations as I did last year in the same situations with Hartley.
