Akers with the record tying kick!!!

The kick was beautiful, right down the pipe. Once it it the cross bar it was like time froze waiting for whether it would bounce in or out... similar to a clutch shot that bounces off the rim in basketball!

Lord Akers still our MVP. No joke.

Yeah, I thought it was going to fall short after bouncing off of it but you are right time did stand still. It was just an awesome moment. I think I cheered louder for that than any other thing today.

Edit: here it is...


I was too busy celebrating to notice that Dixon picked him up and coach came out to congratulate him instead of heading right to the locker room.

I can't believe they even attempted it. Much less made it.

I was worried with our luck it would get blocked and returned for a TD and change the whole game.

true, true I should say our luck at Lambeu. But with a kick that long the trajectory has to be very low and a lot of them are blocked. Looks like Raji had his hand up high but it was a bit over it.

P.S. Isn't there a rule against standing under the goal post and jumping up to block it. I know you can be back there to return but I thought there was a rule against standing under it and waiting to block it. Looked like the player did try to jump up and block it.

That was an awesome kick how it bounced over. When that happened I knew it was our day.

More than just our day. Everything and everyone on this team is special. This defense is possibly better than last year, imagine this offense if it progresses from now to the end of the season as much as it improved from day 1 to the playoffs last year. This is our year, I can feel it....downstairs
