The Akers Effect

Chad Ochocinco is available...
Personally I would not mind Jeff Reed to finish our season with a ring.

Tuvecchio, Longwell, Reed anyone would be better than Akers! He should have been gone after the Rams tie!
Maybe the 49ers should sign this guy.

Replace a head case with this guy? Great idea! He looks very well grounded.

Or whenever he "hurt his groin"...

IF he even hurt his groin , he prolly did it over exerting on that kick.

It's more a mental thing now he just has the yips. Hope he goes super Akers and helps us bring home #6

Neil Rackers or John Kasay. Kasay might be the logical choice because he's also a lefty. No adjustment for Lee, who's been holding lefties for a long time now dating back to Nedney.

Kasay would be good. Always liked him in Carolina.
Billy Cundiff possibly the replacement........?

yup, i'm still gonna stress over FG's....................
I think at this stage I would be happy with a kicker that can consistently hit field goals from under 45 yards out. I think we should be able to find a guy who at least has a good short game. Akers has been garbage from very make-able range FGs and thats just not acceptable at this level.
Its just a matter of time when Akers will start missing extra points. Get rid of him now.

Eh, I'll take it. Akers has gotta go.
i think they're gonna have two kickers on the team.

wouldn't surprise me, Akers as one I think and whoever wins this tryout deal.
