Not exactly the same, but point taken.
this....pretend not injured to save job...makes sense
lol Only thing is Akers was the best kicker in the league only one season ago. Should have felt a little better than this to hit the bench. Better then blowing it hard and possibly permanently losing his job.
The Lions have had alot to complain about over the years, but having Jason Hanson as a solid, reliable kicker for 21 years now is insanely valuable.
I still cant believe hes been their kicker since 1992. If you go back and watch the old footage of Joe Montana's final game with the 49ers, week 17 of 1992 I think, its against the Lions, and Jason Hanson kicks the ball off to begin the 2nd half. Its so weird that hes STILL playing.
