Hartley waived and Shayne Graham Signed [MERGED]

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Shayne Graham is a guy who's kicked in some harsh winter weather outdoors for Cincinnati and at division rivals Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cleveland... ...this is a real smart signing showing foresight for the environs of Seattle, then New York......

He must have gave Payton an excuse.

I think Carr was cut to make room for maybe Marcel Jones being promoted from the practoce squad.

He wasn't a long term solution. Those who blindly appreciated him for his NFC Championship kick (regardless of later performance) would see the light if/when he lost us a playoff game on that leg and his screwed up mental situation.

Thanks Hartley for the memories, but it's time everyone move on.

Re: Hartley waived and Shayne Graham Signed [MERGED]

I have never been a big fan of changing horses in the middle of the stream.

Other than the loss to the failclowns a couple years ago that so many LOVE to harp about, how many games have the Saints lost because of missed FGs? Probably could count them on one hand.

Even if Hartley made his 2 kicks Sunday, that is only 6 points and the Saints lost by 17.

The guy was a disaster. Anything under 40 yards and you were out of his range. You can't go into the playoffs with a kicker who can't hit a 25 yd FG.

Graham is 85% over his career.
