Question Garrett Hartley and John Kasay will have open competition for Saints’ kicker job

Saints’ kicker Garrett Hartley was one of the league’s premier kickers in 2010, before missing all of 2011 with injuries. Proving just how uncertain things are for kickers, Hartley will now have to beat John Kasay, who did a solid job in his absence last year, to keep his starting job and likely his roster spot, this according to special teams coordinator Greg McMahon.

Pulling for Hartley. Hopefully he's done with injuries.

Look-in-the-mirror, do-or-die time for Hartley: suspension, injury-prone, and now facing a 42 year old to win the job.

Could this possibly be a money-saving measure because of the Brees situation?

It'll cost us 2.4 million to cut him, then we have to pay Kasey.

It only costs us 1.75 million to keep him.

We got lucky with Kasay. Very lucky. Hartley will be the man for years to come. He is money when he's healthy. Remember he still holds a Superbowl record for kicks over 40 yards.

Exactly.....if its not an injury then its his confidence...which always leads to us bringing in kicker over 40 to help him get his confidence up......am I the only one a little bothered by that? I mean the guy has a hell of a leg but he'll miss a couple of chip shots and bug out. LOL. He'll be ok tho. I'd rather have the guy that got us to the SB than an aging guy with limited range.

But if we could some how get Janikowski from the Raiders.....I doubt we would ever have a 4 & out....dude tied dempsy's record & even when he's hurting is blasting 40-45yd FGs. LOL
