Wow we're gonna cut Akers
The kickers we tried out are Nate Kaeding and Billy Cundiff
I would be disgusted if we lost Akers over some missed field goals especially when we didn't even need them to win the games. He could have won us the Rams game I know but he can bounce back from that. Cutting a guy the same season he bangs a 63 yarder through is lame....

I like him too, but keeping him around when it could cost us games doesn't make much sense either.

I read on the homepage he's ranked 29th among all active kickers. That's not good.

BTW Coach, just say NO to Cundiff. I'd rather Andy Lee kick FG'S over that guy.

The fact that Cundiff is even a remote option over Akers is depressing.

Every kicker has his off days granted Akers has had a couple very off days. I don't think he will cost us a playoff game though like Cundiff....

I don' tthink that is what it means necessarily. I think Akers is still the best of the kickers in question. However, he need to get his act in order.
Akers needs to get his head out of his as NAO! C'mon man!

Kaeding is horrible in the playoffs. I would rather have Akers despite his misses recently.

Yeah I'd like to keep Akers also. I was saying between Kaeding and Cundiff I'd take the former.
I say sign Kaeding for a couple of weeks to give Akers a rest (we have an open roster spot). I think we wore out his leg last year. That will give him rest for the playoffs.
Kaeding is great in the regular season and as soon as he has to hit a big playoff kick he misses. I'll pass on Cundiff as well.
