But he has also made some huge kicks during some big-time games as well. NFCC in OT against the Vikes comes to mind. Or how about the Super-bowl when he hit 5 from 40+ or whatever that record was...

Re: Maltos

Hartley scares the crap out of me every time he steps on the field. It's like knowing Chuck Norris is going to hit you with a spinning heel kick.............not knowing when it's coming is the scary part.
Cue Carly Simon: Anticipation.

Re: Maltos

I didn't even touch on the impact of his misses.

I will cover a few things I covered last year for those that missed it.

I do not include his Adderall rookie season.

These are situational and you tell me if they do not throw up red flags.

30-39 yard kicks 76%
40-49 yard kicks 76.2 %
50+ yard kicks 71.4%

Home accuracy in our Dome 71% at home
Turf accuracy 79.6%
Grass Accuracy 84.1%

We are a Dome Team that has a kicker that kicks better on grass away... WTF?

50+ yard kicks I am not concerned with but between 30-50 yards this kid is 76.1% in the last 4 seasons.


As far as the hi profile kicks he has made... He is supposed to.... That is his one job, put it between the uprights, he doesn't miss because of length he misses because of inconsistency.

In 2009 his longest kick was 38 yards... Any NFL kicker should make 38 yard field goals all day long.

The biggest problem is that he doesn't play in 45% of the games he is supposed to thus causing us to have to carry two FG kickers.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

The question mark everyone has in their heads is how did he do that and then miss the clutch kicks the next 2 seasons? Doesn't make sense. ATL kick 2 years ago...big miss from very short range. GB and KC last year...we make the playoffs.

I believe the extent to which the FG kicker needs to know the play-book is "kick it or don't kick it. "
