I just hate the thought of the SB on the line and needing Akers to make a FG. I lost all confidence in Akers about 6 weeks ago. I can't imagine that any of the players or coaching staff feel differently.
I said 3 weeks ago, just get closer. If we don't make it on 4th down, then so be it. But if we do , we have a very good chance of getting 7 pts, not 3. Get as close as a PAT, and let akers kick from there. It calls for a different coaching mentality, but I am in favor of that anyway. We kicked way too many FGs last yr and start of this one. I am a lot happier on the 40 yd line on in, go for it. If impossible, then punt. But going for it on 4th down is a really good idea if your FG kicker has the yips.
