    Better yet, have him P for K, because his punts suck.

    Hartmann's dropped a couple within the 10 the last couple games ..... I almost started a thread about how well he's played .....:boogereater:

    Hell of an upgrade over Turk (who got cut from Jax) or that dude from Le'Bears ....errr Da Bears.

    I'm just guessing here, but you strike me as the type of guy who would have complained had the Texans kept Maynard or Turk.

    Really? I thought that was one bright spot of the team this year.

    Sorry, but this doesn't fix Matt Schaub's arm strength problem. Just saying.

    Hartman is doing his job and has some upswing because he's old enough to be Turk's son .

    Hartman has a strong leg and should be fine .

    He could be a weapon in some trickery.

    I wish our coach would be more willing to do that kind of stuff. I don't generally agree with the "Kubiak calls a conservative game" critics so far as X's and O's go, but I do wish he'd be more bold with "trickery."

    Anyone remember the last time we ran a fake punt or a surprise onsides kick?

    Ah yeah, the infamous "Brown Noise"

    On second thought lets just let Schaub keep throwing.

    He does well if he has to punt around the 50, but he always seems to punt short if we punt back in our own territory.

    He may be better than what we could have had, but I would like a different punter.

    Good luck figuring out what "type" of guy I am, I'd really make your head swim in a nice political religious discussion.

    And I do think he's better than those 2, I have just seen too many weak punts by him that have caused the other team to have great field position.

    I think we can find someone better next season, hopefully.

    Wow, put him in if we need a hail mary from our own 20... Crazy distance for a punter.

    His arm strength sure looked like a problem on that bomb to Jacoby....what was that about a 55 yard dime that even Dropsy McNoHands couldn't bobble? With 2 goliaths bearing down him? Yeah but don't let that get in the way of you idiots perpetuating this retarded notion. Too bad there isn't of video of him clowning around with a running headstart to uncork one.

    I'm sorry but outside of that bad punt vs. NO...he's been great. I don't know what DBCooper is watching, but Hartmann is that dude.

    Hopefully our line can give him enough time to take his shirt off first...

    I'm glad someone brought that up, seemed like a bit of a douche move.

    I am glad he is on our team. That was a great throw. Can he throw it wearing a jersey though? Taking his shirt off was a very... guido move.
