At this point ANYTHING is better than Hartley. I think he has missed more than he made this season.

Re: Hypothetical question about our kicking game

Moorestead, from what I understand, has a super strong leg but has accuracy where he can barely hit the side of a barn as a field goal kicker. We probably do better with the head case. Moorestead is an emergency place kicker only.

I think Hartley has to go. We can't afford to have him screw up next week. The 49ers are a far better football club than the Cowboys, at least defensively.

I made a comment a while back that theSaints will probably focus on O line this comming draft/FA....better add a kicker in there as well. Seriously,we need some consistency. This guy is just not worth having around anymore.

No way i am burning a draft pick on a frikicker... We will have glaring needs with the 2014 FA class and the cap.

truth is, kickers are cheap
and what better conditions would a PK want: explosive offense and minimum of 9 dome games

I could see one pick maybe, if there's a stud can't miss kicker in the draft.

But I agree Oak, I'd rather sign a relatively inexpensive but reliable kicker in free-agency.

I know, oxymoron...

How about a talented kicker? Or an dependable kicker?

It seems that there are no positive adjectives you can match with kicker that don't sound like an oxymoron.

Gimme some help here.
