Akers appreciation thread

I dont know what the answer is this year but the Niners have at least 11 picks in the draft and should use on on a kicker. Dustin Hopkins of Florida St. would be a good 6th rd pick

Seriously, work him out. He wasn't bad when he was with us. Akers wont be able to turn it around THIS year. When a kickers head is f**ked, it just cant be turned around that quick.
Here's how you fix his head...

Make him practice kicks with practice squad defenders flying towards him unabated from 5 yds beyond the los. every miss they get a 1 yd head start.

that will fix his focus

i cant vouch for that guy anymore.............Bring in Nate Kaeding if hes healthy

Kaeding sucks! I'd rather have Akers.


Akers' confidence is shot right now, a fresh start might be good for the team. Akers simply cannot be counted on in the clutch anymore.

Both are terrible in clutch situations. (Kaeding historically and Akers as of late)
We can't take Akers into the playoffs

Maybe but there isn't much out there right now and we are not looking good with Akers at the helm heading into the most important time of the year. If we had 2011 Akers then we get two wins back on the board and are looking great right now for a bye week but as it stands, thats not the case so I think all options should be considered and maybe some time away from the game this year has ignited some fire in Kaeding, who knows.
He should be gone. End of story.

Thanks...I would have been fine without realizing that.

11-1 actually because he missed an even closer field goal in the first game as well.

How many more games does this clown have to squander before we release this dude. But then again who is out there.

I know kickers don't just grow on trees but theres gotta be somebody out there that can get the job done because he sure as hell isn't. I cringe when he is asked to kick freakin 30 yard chip shots and when he's goin from 40+ I just chalk it up as a turnover on downs. Dudes been plain horrible this year.

Say what you want about crappy play calling and QB play (wich was very bad) but with all that if our Kicker just does his damn job we win both those games.

Pitiful.
