Why the hell is Garrett Hartley still kicking off?

That's all...just that. But while I'm at it, I'd also like to ask:

Why in the name of all that's holy is Garrett Hartley STILL kicking off?!?

Hartley kicked off seven times. He had no touchbacks. He had one fielded on the 17, another on the 36, and another go out of bounds. (That last one might have been a blessing in disguise, because only twice did the coverage teams stop the Bengals short of the 40.)

I realize that the Saints' kick coverage sucked the dead today, and not much of it was Hartley's fault. But I can't help believing two things: one, that Morstead could have gotten touchbacks; and two, that when things are going bad, you make the obvious adjustments first!

So...does anyone have an answer? Something I don't know? (And no, you can't compare their stats on NFL.com, because Morstead is a punter, see? So they don't have kicking stats...even though he also kicks off. Sometimes. Just not now. Why?)
