I've noticed that too on every kick attempt. I know nothing about kicking but can't help but wonder if it has something to do with the hook to the left.
I've seen Akers a long time, having grown up near where the Eagles have their training camp. I saw him as a rookie. He drives the ball. Always did. He is obviously hurt. All the kicks are the same, he gets decent leg but the kicks fade left at the end because he has no power. He is not driving the ball. He is hurt. He needs to be out of there and we should seriously be thinking of getting a new kicker
IN FACT--- look at the angle of Akers and not the angle of the ball. He is usually much lower with a high leg snap. He is standing straight up and down and just sort of gliding his leg through the ball, hoping it goes straight long enough
