this times infinity. after seeing how he cost us two games vs the rams and how he stumbled vs the cards, how can anyone justify keeping him?right now the team is looking at two guys to replace him and i refuse to think they could any worse than num nuts at this point in time.he is a kicker with no confidence. the two guys they are looking at are probably better in the head right now that num nuts. for the last month all we have been doing is "hoping" he will break out of his slump, well look here,, its a month later and s**t is getting worse. Jh deserves a big F for the way he has bungled this kicking thing.
I've got to think that the 63 yard field goal in the first game this season screwed up either Akers' mechanics or his head. After that Green Bay game he seemed to develop a hook. He then seemed to overcompensate and has since begun pushing his kicks to the left. It's interesting that Akers has been kicking better in practice than in games.
