Great. When does he start for your team? The Saints need a real place kicker.

a 66% kicker would rate dead last in the NFL.

Re: Garrett Hartley

That would have been a crucial 3 points, early today. This man basically cannot be counted upon.

It's sad.

The problem behind this, is that we had to cut someone and activate Ryan Griffin from the practice squad to keep the Rams from getting him. Which takes up a roster spot, that we would normally be able to use on carrying a third temporary kicker, which is exactly what they've done in the past, when Harley has his emo hissy fits or hits slumps, they carry three ridiculous kickers on the roster with Hartley inactive for a spell. If they cut Hartley right now, he's gone to another team instantly, and won't come back, which would really suck if the new guy doesn't work out either. We could theoretically end up paying Hartley to kick against us, for another team, if we cut him and still owe him his salary. If we had that free roster spot and Griffin on the PS, I have no doubt we would be carrying a second place kicker from somewhere for a game or two or three. It's messed up all around.

Re: Garrett Hartley

If hartley is released, no doubt he will go on to be the NFL scoring leader in FG's

thats just what happens to people that leave our team

Re: Garrett Hartley

It's not just the 3pts NOT on the scoreboard, it's the deflation to the team's momentum in a game...

He's just not focused...

Exactly. Also, at the end of the game if we're down by 3 instead of 6, the whole approach to the 2-minute drill changes. Yeah, you still need a TD to win but have the option of a FG to send it to OT.

He didn't cost us the game on his own but he definitely contributed.
