Can Hartley Be Trusted?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Saints' loss by no means is Garrett Hartley's fault - though his miss definitely, directly contributed to it... Recalling the loss to Atlanta in the 2010 season was eerily familiar... ...this offense, despite some recent struggles, doesn't require Morten ...

Can Hartley Be Trusted?

The Saints' loss by no means is Garrett Hartley's fault - though his miss definitely, directly contributed to it...

Recalling the loss to Atlanta in the 2010 season was eerily familiar...

...this offense, despite some recent struggles, doesn't require Morten Andersen...


...so was Old Man John Kasay more reliable???

...let the second guessing begin...

Need a more reliable kicker, Hartley is extremely inconsistent and whilst I don't blame him for the loss today, there will be a time when he screw is again

With Kasay, you did get the feeling he was going to get it done...

While eating pizza with friends during the game, several people moaned "here we go" before Hartley missed...

...and I knew I wanted to asked this forum that question...

Got Kromer on speed dial? We do not have a choice, we have to be fans of whatever they decide to put on the field

Not saying it was Hartly's fault... but I'd resign John Kasey.

Re: Can Hartley Be Trusted?

It's time to get a new Kicker, I think there were all kinds of games today showing how important a good kicker actually is, including our game.

Dustin Hopkins from Florida State would be a very good choice, he has a strong leg and last year he made 81 percent of his kicks last year. Him or Florida's kicker would be a very good choice.

I don't want either Hartley or Kasay, I think both of their times on New Orleans will be over at the end of the year.

Re: Can Hartley Be Trusted?

The whole thing about analyzing a kick that was missed very early on is kind of pointless because the WHOLE game would have been different. I think it is funny when people think we can just add those 3 points thinking the game plays out the same way.

So you're saying that if he makes that kick, the game is not even close?!?
