Only problem is, the score was 0-0 at the first miss in the first quarter, and 7-0 Saints at the second miss in the second quarter. So at the times he missed both kicks, it was far from a blowout, and the Bills weren't bending over like many thought they would. Don't get me wrong, I supported this guy looooong after most on here had thrown him to the dogs. But now, even I get a tight feeling in my stomach every time Hartley walks on the field. I would love to see this guy turn into Morten Anderson, but I just don't think it's gonna happen.

Re: Garrett Hartley

When it gets unnerving for me to watch him kick i think its time to look for another kicker, Hartley is going to have me on prescription medication soon... We are doing too good this season for us to rely on his some-timer kicking.

Correction we have enough problems with our O-line, running game, and red zone performance for us to have to rely on his some-timer kicking

Yeah, Morten spoiled us just like Jackson, Mills, Johnson & Swilling spoiled us at Linebacker...

It's the fact that he's missing in the Dome, well within an average NFL kickers range...

Now that Will Smith and Roman Harper are not there, Charles Brown has been my new project, and the posts are there to prove it...

Re: Garrett Hartley

What jeanpierre said, except for the spoiled part. Shankley is not even mid pack in accuracy in relation to the rest of the league.

56 yards, wind, rain, bad snap, bad hold, death in the family, game on the line, broken skateboard.. all completely understandable.

The most perfect circumstances a professional kicker could ever ask for, at normal yardage... Its inexcusable.


We are not expecting perfection, we are expecting 3 points when the conditions are perfect.

Perhaps we should have spent 2 draft picks on a kicker instead of a punter.

Funny, I was looking for this because we know you love the punter, haha.
I would love to have a field goal kicker as good as Morestead is a punter however.
