Sean needs an old friend on the staff for his personal well-being and can always lend his leadership to right the ship when it comes to the kicking game...

Note: As a member of the Coach Parcells coaching tree, Sean Payton will need to follow Parcells convention and call it kicking and not special teams as they're is nothing special about those guys...

Re: Hartley waived and Shayne Graham Signed [MERGED]

am i the only one that thinks coverage on special teams have been a whole lot better this year?

return game has been a bit of a disappointment and needs to addressed. a dynamic returner would be nice but i look at the blocking and i rank it pretty low. most of the tackles seem to becoming from players right up the middle of the field

kicking has been well a shot gun effect for a few years now. ever since the hip injury Heartly never was the same.

now to gut it all? i am not ready to go that far.

No, that was 2011. In 2012, we lost to the Packers in Lambeau and Hartley missed the game winner wide left.

I thought he would be gone after getting suspended to be honest. He'd get into bad favor and then quasi redeem himself. He probably would have this time too if not for that 2nd miss. Can't have that this late in the season.

Btw, Tulane kicker is the #1 for this upcoming draft. Could we have a Tulane PK and a Tulane QB starting next year? I kid I kid.

I'll be at the R-L Carriers Bowl in the Superdome this Saturday to pull for the Greenie Weenie's. Although I'm an LSU alum, I live about 1/2 mile from Tulane and grabbed some tickets to the Bowl game against ULL.

I promise to come back with a scouting report. Unfortunately, place kicker scouting reports are about as exciting as a turd floating in a punch bowl.

We suck on special teams and it could seriously help our game if we stepped up.
Agree, something needs to be done. I think we have some good special teams players but nobody that's really dynamic. We could really use a Fred McAfee, Gleason or Roby type, somebody that is a real ace special teamer on kick and punt returns and who all the young players look up to. We don't have a single player like that right now.

Other than that, getting a decent kicker should not be too hard. McMahon's track record at this point does not look good. Those should be the big concerns on ST's right now.
