“It was just a flat miss. … Protection, like I said, was great,” he noted. “I felt great coming into the ball. It left my foot and it felt good, and then I saw it tailing left.”

When asked about how close he came to making it, Hartley said that was little consolation.

“It’s either good or it’s not … there’s no in between,” he said. “If it’s close, it doesn’t matter. I know what my job is, and it didn’t happen this time.

“Obviously, it’s disappointing personally knowing that I let these guys down that fought and battled throughout (the game).”

Re: Hartley offers no excuses for missed field goal

Should be used to letting your guys down by now hartley, you do it often enough

You have one job, kick the ball through the posts, you can't even do that

If sproles had caught that pass it wouldn't have come down to Hartley and personally hope another game this season comes down to hartley

Hang tight. Not sure that exact stat exists, but i may be able to pull a few others that would tell that story.. or close to it.

Something you should keep in mind Post 2009:

2011 - no stats
2010 - only 14 games

Thus far... Hartley has never played a full season, and 2010 is the only year he played more than 1/2 the games.

Re: Hartley offers no excuses for missed field goal

If this DUMB AZZ would just LEARN to aim at the RIGHT post when over 45, he wouldn't have this problem.

He has a strong right leg. When the pressure is ON, he will lay into it. When he does that the arc of his leg and foot will always produce a curve-left ball.

It shows on his field goals. He would be best-served to drop the soccer-style and develop a Dempsey-style of kicking.
