What are we going to do about Hartley?

He is %70 with a long of 53 and his % has deteriorated every year he has been in the league. That can't be good for a dome team's kicker. there has to be a better option

Re: What are we going to do about Hartley?

That 53 yarder he made this season is his career long, so I don't think he is "damaged goods" like you were postulating.

SP will be back next season and he'll figure out what to do with Hartley, and there really is no reason for anyone to do anything about it until then.

Also, I wouldn't say that he overachieved in '09 when '08 was a far better year for him statistically - he made 13 out of 13 attempts that year. And in '10 he made 20 out of 25 attempts which is also very good in my book.

He never was very accurate. One thing he has done however is make some critical kicks. That's why he's still around. As of late however he has been more shaky than a French soldier. That extra point that rattled in is unacceptable. I'm done with him.

Has he cost the Saints any games?

The Saints have a helluva lot bigger problems than the kicker!

1. A defense that is hemmoraghing points and yards
1a. We are without our head coach

Not really worried about the Kicker. We have a few other things to worry about
