As if.

It would be like Chuck Norris in a Tu-tu. Never gonna happen.

To bad because he is pretty cool. Doesn't make him a good kicker - especially under pressure.

If we got Morten back, I'd take him even if he called him self Danilicious...

If the guy can kick de bol, so be it...

But I did'nt think we'd out do Ocho Cinco, but Kickalicious ...lol

Re: Maltos

Shankley is an accident looking for a place to happen.

There are basically two types of kickers in the NFL, there is the kicker that splits the uprights from the 24 and you think.. "he could have made that kick from the 50 yard line"... Then there is the Garrett Shankley the thought after his kick is "with that angle, just 3 yards further back and he hits the cone in the corner of the endzone".

Re: Maltos

That will happen when he is kicking for the Falcants.

Re: Maltos

I will admit that I get a little nervous sometimes, but Hartley is 60 of 71 FGs over his career. That's almost 85%. He's missed one extra point. He's not bad. I just lost a little confidence in him when he got all weird a couple seasons back.

That % is skewed as he was on Adderall the only season he had 100%. 81.2 is his true career average and that puts him at 29th in the league. 81.2% sounds good until you compare him with the rest of the league.
NFL Career Field Goal % Leaders - Pro-Football-Reference.com

Out of 80 possibly regular season games in his 5 year career he has participated in 43.... We have had to have another kicker the other 37 games.. nearly half the time... Thus he is a health liability.


Ill frame it this way between 2010 and 2012 he only played in 6 more games than Chris Ivory. Hartley averages playing in 8.6 games a season.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: Maltos

I'd rather have a kicker that misses some kicks and comes through in the clutch than vice versa. Hartley has missed huge kicks at the end of the game that are back breakers. For kickers, it does all come down to 1 play.
