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

This isn't 2004
First off i wasat work today and just watched the 2nd half
Funny thing. On the FG in the previous possesion I asked my raider coworker where were they at on the field.
He said around the 40, I say ohsweet in range for akers.
He gives me a look like no they are not. (Me) oh he has a big boot like janikowski. he says well was he on the all decade team? Does he have the record of 65(yes he said 65)

When that kick happened I called him on the radio and answered him with a yes he has the record.

This is the 4th time someone has hit a 63 yd. FG for the NFL record.

However, the previous 3 came with some form of aid. Tom Dempsey, the Saints kicker who first nailed the record 63 yarder in the 70's had no toes on his foot, making booting a football easier. Jason Elam and Sebastian Janikowski both hit theirs in the Mile High air of Denver.

So David Akers just hit the longest ever totally unaided 63 yd. FG.

This might be bad, but I think when Akers hit that 63 yarder, that was the loudest I cheered all day. I stopped maybe after 20 seconds of yelling... that was BADASS.

It was the loudest I cheered all day. I almost lost my voice on just that one play. I was more reveled towards the end so I didn't celebrate as much. But Akers kick was just so dramatic (time stood still on the bounce) and then the celebration and going up 16-7 compared to 13-7 (2 possession instead of 1) was such a huge lift. Makes you wonder how the game would have been different if he misses it.

And someone on the 9ers.com board mentioned Janakowski and Elam's FGs were in Denver where the air is thin. Tom Dempsey had no toes on that foot so he had a block shoe... no idea if that would be an advantage or not. Seems like it would mean less accuracy but more power.

And we should thank Kyle Williams for the 20 yard punt return to set it up.
