it's hard to not have my favorite players be a kicker and punter, especially when I consider who we have at those positions. What a good dude

I agree, we get caught up in the happenings of the game. Usually, there's something more meaningful to it. It would be sweet to have that 6th 'ship off of a Akers' game winning FG. If that ended up happening, imagine Andy Reid's reaction.

Rick Reilly always seems to come up with some nice stories but this one was especially sweet. If this doesn't tug on your heartstrings a little bit, you better go see a specialist.

Sometimes going through the hard times makes the good times even sweeter.

Akers did an interview on KNBR a month ago or so. He came across as a very articulate, thoughtful guy. This article frames that interview very well. Good stuff.
Thanks for the EXCELLENT post!

That Dream Team crap.

The fickle Fhilly Fans should realize by now that all tthat glitters is not gold - in their case it's non-playoff season.

Thanks for Akers Philly!
He will kick the game winning field goal in every playoff game this year


you guys, let hope that the 49ers win the superbowl this year because if there is a person that deserve a superbowl ring, that ring belong to david aker.
f**k philadelphia. Did they not know a thing about this, or were they too busy yelling and screaming while looking for excuses as per usual? If Reid knew about what Akers was going through, then I lost a whole ton of respect for him.

And then after we beat the Saints, the Giants will upset the Packers, enabling us to host the NFC championship game where we win 15-13 on a last second David Akers FG
Amazing article!
akers seems like a great guy, really happy for him that everything worked out
