Hartley waived and Shayne Graham Signed [MERGED]

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Feel bad for Hartley, but his time had come. You have to be able to count on your kicker in the playoffs and he just wasn't up to the task. Best of luck in the future Garrett....hope it all works ...

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.
Remember the Green Bay game............

The one we lost because Ingram couldn't get a yard?

Well lucky for us Hartley isn't a horse and we're not standing in the middle of a stream.

No, We are in the final quarter of the regular season and we cut our kicker because he had a couple kicks blocked.

Our QB throws an interception on his 1st pass of the game and later throws another into triple coverage.

We throw on 1st down so often that Helen Keller and Ray Charles can see it coming.

Some of the losses and close games are because of Payton's 'mad scientist' mentality.

The second kick was NOT blocked! He shanked the crap out of it. It never touched the defender's hand. I'm going to try to find some video of it.

I dont blame Drew for that first pic whatsoever, the second yea, but if he would of just threw the ball away he was still in the pocket and that results in safety get sacked safety he had no other choice the Oline got blown to sh*t on that play

I would rather Drew take the safety than throw that interception.
