As most of you know, I have been one of Hartley's biggest defenders on this board. I have believed in him and defended him missed kick after missed kick. I have defended him for three years. I can't defend him any more. Like someone else said, he's a head case. He is now indefensible. I really thought Hartley was going to be another Morton Anderson, but, I'm like some of you others, I cringe when he gets up to kick. I can't take it anymore.

Thank you for the NFC Championship. And thank you for the Superbowl. You will always be one of the heros of 2009. But it's time to part ways.

Now all that said, Hartley, or whomever our next kicker is, needs to stop being put in that position time after time after time. Nobody can be successful like that.

Given our defense, a good FG by Hartley in all likelyhood would have only delayed the inevitable. Does anyone really think we would have stopped GB from marching down the field for a winning FG?

No but that's not the point

With that said, every time Hartley is up for a field goal, I get an unsettling feeling in my stomach like I expect him to miss.
He shouldn't take the total blame for the loss - but he should be cut, nonetheless, to send a message...

Right after him, I'd let Sedrick Ellis, Will Smith, and Roman Harper catch a ride with him...

And Lance Moore, you're a possession receiver that's dropping the ball - What would Coach Payton say to you now, son...

LOL, I was saying we should cut hartley before the plane ride home, leave his butt in GB.
Also, I agree w/ Ellis and Smith, but still have hope for Harper. Oh, and about Lance Moore...since when does he drop passes? It seems like this year he's dropping more than all the other years combined!? Not like him at all!!

Re: I am ready to move on from Hartley

Even if Hartley would have made the field goal, I'm pretty sure our D would have let A-Rod carve em up and they probably would of scored on us anyway.
