I'm not sure that releasing Akers at the end of the season is a good idea. His problems may be injury related and the off season could clear that up and he'd be good to go. You wouldn't want him to go to a team you may have to face during the season and have him beat you.

The best option is to keep him at least through the pre-season and bring in some competition to see if he can win his job back. I'm sure that they can create some kind of a financial structure predicated on how he performs at the beginning of next season.

yeah my feelings exactly. The dudes under some mental block and just doesnt have his swing. Off season should correct this and he should be back to his 2011 form.
Honestly I think Nate Keading is better at this point. And trust me from living in SD Keading sucks. But he doesn't suck this bad. Akers is horrific. He's going to kill us in the playoffs.

mason crosby could get released too... he misses 1 fg per game.

Yeah he's pretty bad. I don't know what happened to Akers? Maybe it's that pelvis issue which they never fully explain? But that's part of it. You have to be healthy to be effective. We are just toast with this guy. Sometimes it's 2 in one game. Get in a close game vs. the Packers or Giants and he will be our downfall in the playoffs. I honestly have 0% faith in him by now. It was hovering around 25% faith and 75% against. But this has just gone on too long. And it seems like it's getting worse. Outside of 30 yards I don't think he can hit anymore. 35 - 40 is too long for him to be reliable. You can't go into the playoffs with that. You can't....

If we have a 31 yarder + I'm thinking miss. That's how bad it's gotten. We need 29 yards or less for him. Maybe he can hit from 30 even.

I saw nothing wrong with Ginn. He didn't touch the ball on that punt.

As for Akers, He's been a great kicker, had an awesome year last year. But its a new season and he's been missing a handful of turning point kicks. We can't "hope" in the playoffs that he makes these. Next week in Seattle or in the playoffs, it could come down to a 35 yd FG and honestly not many of us are confident he can make it. I was cringing when he attempted one inside 20 against the Pats, but he made it.
we need a new kicker. we need those 3 points
