Former LSU kicker Josh Jasper gets tryout with Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Supply and demand. The supply is much more than the demand and we all know some kickers are "streaky". Jasper 28 - 34 , Hartley 18 - 22. Hartley is the poster boy for "I hope he makes this kick" ...

Supply and demand. The supply is much more than the demand and we all know some kickers are "streaky". Jasper 28 - 34 , Hartley 18 - 22.

Hartley is the poster boy for "I hope he makes this kick"

As a fan base we got to witness two of the all time best. Eddie Murray and Morten Andersen. Doug Brien and Carney weren't bad either.

I think not. But there you go. All very well telling the positives of five of seven from beyond 50 yards, But whar were the curcumstances of the missed 7 from 49 below 50 yards?

Whatever. Bring the competition in and lets see if Hartley can cope.

2012 NFL most accurate kicker 94%
2011 .... 93%

But NFL kickers for the most part have 1/2 a season indoors and on turf...

Other than indoors, and field type kicking in college is the same as the NFL.. A foot, a ball, a holder and uprights.

Garrett Hartley

2012 -81%
2011 - injured
2010 - 80%
2009 - 81%

Hartley is a kicker that has only managed to play 16 game 1 season in his career.

Man, I wish we could have gotten the kicker from Tulane. I was really hoping we could land him in UDFA.

He stayed in school. He's a senior this year (2013-2014)

Since his injury? He was benched during the 2010 season and that was way before his injury. Plus, he botched a chip shot very badly against Tampa Bay in week 16 during the 2009 Super Bowl run, which could have potentially cost us the #1 seed that year. He's also been terrible after the injury and I have no idea why we started him over John Kasay, who was terrific during our 2011 season.
