Sean Payton says Kicker Jose Maltos has "got a live leg and his get off times are good"

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; No offense Hartley. Thanks for the memories, the hits, the misses, that feeling in the pit of my stomach every time we need a game winner, but I'm really pulling for this kid. Not like Hartley keeps pulling his kicks ...

A third persons POV can change ones own view on a matter.
I just want a kicker who is automatic. Fartley did OK last season, but that's not good enough. He needs to be clutch, always. Sorry to purists who remember the clutch kick in 2010 from Hartley that booted us into the Superbowl - that was 2009, this is 2013.

I felt 100 times more confident with John Kasay as our kicker and although he is now retired, I believe he could have played even another season this year (and at more than half the price tag).

I completely agree with this. There were many high-pressure kicks that John Kasay delivered for us and actually I think we might have even had a winning season last year if we had had Kasay. Kasay would not have missed against Kansas City and we would have won that game, and maybe gotten on a roll. I still can't comprehend why we dropped Kasay and kept the fat punk kicker.

I agree to a point. From 53 + yards
I don't expect clutch. Hartley missing
Kicks shorter than extra point range is what did him in in my book. Extra Point and shorter indoors should be 100%.


We are a dome team and Hartley has a better kicking % outside on grass 8-/

His cap figure is far too high for what is expected of him and what he delivers.
We could save 1ml to 1.5ml on the cap with another kicker that could so the same job.Wether its this year or next something needs done.
You can't spend the money we do on a place kicker and punter while paying big money on the O-Line and QB

Maltos is little more than a camp body. He has a good leg and he deserves a look just like all the rest of the UDFA's. But, I personally don't see him having a real shot at the position. I actually think Hartley will have an All-Pro season this year.

At this point Moorestead was challenging Hartley. Time for new blood.

Viva Jose!
