Yes!
Unfortunately we'll probably keep two K's on the roster instead of replacing Hartley. We'll lose a back-up somewhere.

If you ask me, it's almost 2 years overdue.
They gave this kid 3rd and 4th chances, now we need to hire a big boy and not a choir boy. They're looking at a deep playoff run and how can anyone say they can depend on this kid to win some games, I have no clue!

I don't know... if we sign someone, why not just cut Hartley? It's been 5 years...rip the band-aid off already.

I would hate it to come down to a field goal again for a chance to go to the superbowl and Hartley line up to kick, I really don't think my heart could take it.
He just is so sporatic. His on the road % is higher than at home, how does that happen in a Dome?

I dunno, I think we're cutting ties this time. Obviously the babying isn't working and it's unfair to the player. He can go to another city and still get his head straight, but apparently not with our organization.

His contract ends soon, so it's not like a huge cap loss to cut him (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Facts are - WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A REGULAR, STEADY KICKER!!!
Much less a CHAMPIONSHIP kicker. What have you done for me lately is the motto of the NFL, and XLIV or not, this kid is going to KILL us in a close game and cost us HFA in the playoffs AGAIN!!!

To be fair I think Hartley may have been injured last game. He was holding the inside of his leg after one kick if I remember correctly. Or maybe I was just drinking too much.
