There has NEVER in the history of the NFL been a kicker that was 100% and there never will be. Hell, even Morton Anderson was known to shank a few.

IMO, anytime a field goal is attempted, the offense has failed.
Granted, he HAD a great month Jan-Feb 2010. We need someone we can have FAITH in this season.

Problem is, if the Saints don't pull the trigger then Hartley has that much more pressure on his fragile psyche.
He may just completely wiff the next attempt.

What happened to kickalicious Havard Rugland? Just a crazy thought, but I was under the impression he looked great.

Both the Lions and Packers passed on him. So I'm not sure what they did or didn't see in him.

Must just not be the football type. Can't always transform people into a football player as well.

Kickslicious tried out for a handful of teams . Lions, Packers, Jets, Browns and all passed on him. Where does all the want come from?

Re: Saints Work Out Kickers

Okay, I don't like it either that Hartley is missing kicks but both Graham and Rackers missed at least 6 kicks their last season that they kicked. The same amount as Hartley. All of these kickers worked out for Houston last week and none of them were signed and Bullock has missed at least 8 kicks this year including 3 in the Colts game that they lost by 3 pts in so it doesn't sound like they were too impressed with them. Ride it out the rest of the way with Hartley and sign a new kicker next year. I don't care if it was Dallas, if Brees is on the money like he was Sunday night, all we will need Hartley for is extra points.

Schwartz Says Akers Was ‘Clear-Cut Winner’ Over Kickalicious CBS Detroit

He apparently did not miss in preseason. Yet they still mentioned inconsistency. It must mean something.

When you say the same amount as Hartley that is only in 9 games brother. Rackers missed 6 in 16 games.

Rackers banged out 86.8% his last two years in Houston and he has only missed 2 games in his last 6 years.
Neil Rackers NFL Football Statistics - Pro-Football-Reference.com

Rackers is 100 and 90 % on turf his last two years.
Neil Rackers: Situational Stats at NFL.com

Hartleys best season was 81.8 and has only had 1 complete season in his career.
Garrett Hartley NFL Football Statistics - Pro-Football-Reference.com

On Turf
Hartley is 81%, 64%, 77%, 80%

Hartley's accuracy is one thing, having to carry a second FG kicker for 4 of his 5 seasons is yet another.

There is no comparison of the two. All that is left is to see how he does in tryouts to know if he still has it.
