07:21 AM ET 11.13 | While the dismantling was nearly total, the Saints' 49-17 win over the Cowboys Sunday also featured Garrett Hartley's missed 37-yard field goal. Hartley has only hit 16 of his 22 field goal attempts on the season, which puts him at 72.7 percent -- the lowest of his five-year career. He has also missed at least one field goal in each of the Saints'last three games. Now, he has the Saints considering their options. Sources confirm that the Saints brought in five kickers for workouts this week. They include veterans Neil Rackers, Shayne Graham, John Potter, who made three of four field goals earlier this year forWashington, Brandon McManus and Derek Dimke, who have yet to attempt a field goal in the NFL. The Saints made no official moves on the NFL's transaction wire.

Always a former Redskin kicker amongst these names.

Maybe lonely, but playing in a dome and having a 73% success rate should be an automatic pink slip.

The dismantling was 'nearly' total? Looked to me like the Cowboys were the VW bug and the Saints were the 18-wheeler.

With all those misses he's lucky that his badge still gets him into the practice facility.

Yeah - missing that FG against the Cowboys must have been crushing to the Saints spirit.

I just assumed that all kickers currently without a job have probably kicked for the Redskins before

Now.... If we can just shift this trend to a couple of Shanahan coaches.

My money's on Neil Racker. He was quite prolific in his career with the Cards

Yet another opportunity for Zombie George Blanda!

If I knew that more than 2 or 3 people would understand who George Blanda was, I'd dress up as Zombie George Blanda for next Halloween.

He was older than Al Davis.

Too early to toss your kicker. Wait out the season. He has been good.

Kickers have no souls.
