Akers is the best kicker in 49ers history, maybe NFL history. Anyone have the play as called by Ted Robinson on KNBR? Saw it on ESPN this AM, he went nuts. Can't find it online.

knbr 680 has been playing it off and on
And Akers is only 5-10, 205 lbs. Where does he get the power?

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.

As I recall, Dempsey's shoe had a metal plate at its front side.

This GIF is awesome. The look on his face is priceless.

What an amazing freaking kick. And it wasn't in Denver!
Did anybody else notice that the Packers fans were cheering when he made it? lol
