Hartley has been inconsistent going back to 2010 and at one point the Saints had to bring in John Kasay because they had lost a bit of confidence in their young kicker. It’s 2013 and those inconsistent days seem to be far behind him. Hartley was 3/3 against the Falcons from 22, 31, and 48 yards out. The Saints will need Hartley in big moments this year if they hope to return to the playoffs and make another Superbowl run.
