Who do you think is gonna be our kicker next year? Hartley back? Kasay another season?

Losing game because of a crappy kickers sucks big time.. just ask Baltimore.

I remember my first season when I followed the Saints in 2007, when they lost some games because of this dude Grammatica or whatever his name was.

Hartley will be back I think, kasay getting up there in age and pretty much had the same stats as Hartley % wise

Hartley needs to relax on the short kicks, he's got a huge leg for the 50 yarders but he treats a 20 yard kick like a 59 yard one and tries to smash it, I think that's why he swerves some.

But yeah I remember what you mean, I could count at least 3 games that gramatica could have won us in 2007 and it was a nightmare with him on the team

To sum it up Hartley not really reliable - Kasay too old --> solution?

Kasey's main problem is he can't KO anymore. He probably has 2 or 3 years left at 45 yards and in.

Since we have Morstead to KO Kasey is a good fit here.
Halo and Jankman8 like this.

Okay I thought Kasey was more or less done after this season!

I think Hartley gets another chance, but the Saints will most definitely keep Kasey on speed dial. If Hartley gets hurt again, the Saints will need to move on. Dude has been injured here and there his entire Saints career.

Hartley concerns me, a season ending injury at his age...I think they will bring in some stiff competetion this summer. If he doesn't win that battle with authority he's gone. An injury like that is like a rebuilt transmission, it works but will never truly be the same.

Let them fight for it in training camp. Kasey is the starter heading in.
