A new Kicker

Move over Garret Hartley, we are tired of your inconsistency, So much that I've been looking at all the kickers to come in the 2014 Draft and graded them respectfully.

1. Chandler Catanzaro, Clemson
Height: 6-2
Weight: 200
This guy is my favorite, he is clutch! 12-13 this year and the only one he missed was more than 50 yards. Last year he was 18-19 and had 2 clutch field goals for game winners vs LSU. This guy is extremely over-looked and we could most likely get him with our pick in the 6th round.

2. Cairo Santos, Tulane
Height: 5-8
Weight: 160
If we don't get Catanzaro I think we need Santos. He was 14-20 this year, 4 of those misses came from over 50 yards so you can't really blame him (He was 2-6 on 50+) The kid doesn't have much of a boot but is very solid. I'm sure some teams will pass on him because of his size, but who cares, he's a kicker. I expect him to fall into the 7th round, so we could trade down if we wanted to.

3. Chris Boswell, Rice
Height: 6-2
Weight: 210
This guy is a major wild card, he started off his Senior season missing his first 3. However, the guy jumped out of his slump and shined, he made 13-18, 3 misses from 50+. In 2012 he made 6, that's right 6 FG from 50+ and missed 2. This guy has power, but he gets hot and cold.

4. Everyone else
There are some people who stand out more than others, but in all I think Hartley would be a better option over any of the others. They will most likely all be available in free agency so we could bring in 1 or 2 but I just don't see one taking Hartley's roster spot.

Do you guys think we need a new kicker? If I see Hartley on the streets i'll buy him a beer to thank him for a superbowl win, but I just don't think he is a viable option anymore.

Re: A new Kicker

bad time to talk about NOLA kickers and me -- we have (arguably) the best of our history wrapped up in kickers through out our our brief 45 some odd years with "Kickers."

Kickers (like it or not) IS New Orleans Saints football - from THE BOOT to Anderson to Ambush...

(Why isn't Morten Anderson in the Fall of Fame? K.M.A. Jan Stenerud.)

This deserves more discussion on the New Orleans Saint's Site than from this old goat.

The record falls and 3 people notice. Sheeze there was a decade and a half when that was all we had to boast of.

I noticed it, but like most people I was thinking about tonight's game. I wish Dempsey could have kept his share of the record, but there's nothing anyone can do about it, so I personally don't see any real reason to get upset about it.

I could care-less about that record being broke, even analysts have put an asterisk on it already. It was in Denver with the altitude...

Re: A new Kicker

I agree and I was completely heartbroken when Hartley lost the game tonight. He did lose it, right?

Re: A new Kicker

thanks to both of you - I knew the record would fall. but i thought it would get some sorta notice. Even on a Saint's site I am the only one that recognizes it as being a sentinel moment. not sure if i feel old or betrayed.

it was a big deal - it was.

I think your value of "3 people" is a little self absorbed and self-centric. Hate to break the news, but there are other Saints fans who are just as serious or more, than you are, who noticed it.

I heard the record was broken earlier this afternoon, and made a moment of it in my own way, as did thousand of Saints fans. Importance of the event is not judged by responses to your individual thread.
