Jose Cortez was a good tackler
i think Andy Lee could kick better than Akers right now.
Lets hear all the pointers, serious or not, to straighten Akers kicks that push left.

I'm thinking his right plant step must be slightly closer to the ball not allowing him to square up. Or it could be mental and he just needs to move his coins from his left pocket to his right.
How about

Cut the b******t and tell us if you are really hurt and stop trying to hide it
retire after this year
buy a sweet tv for the super bowl
Kick it between the big yellow poles.
Do drugs
Maybe try kicking with his right foot.
he keeps kicking it left.... do what I do with my horrible golf swing and aim the other way more to straighten it out

or harbs just go for it on 4th down

This.
Can't help but think of the Nedney interview from a few weeks ago. He said when a kicker is struggling for confidence, they don't swing all the way through and end up pushing a lot of kicks just wide (right for a righty, left for a lefty). Sure enough, Akers misses again just wide.

There seems to be no solution. Akers wants a pat on the back for booming his KOs and striking the PATs down the middle, but neither of those situations require a full, confident swipe with precise aim. And his confidence will only be worse for the SB than it was entering this game.

It could definitely cost us. Hope not.
Kick right footed

Or fake it snap it too him throw it to crabtree, couldn't be worse at passing than kicking. Hell otherwise straight up just go for it akers needs to retire he can't do the job been clear all season!
dam that sucks that samuels got in his face...probably saying sh** like thats why the eagles cut you. I feel bad for this guy but worst for the team. He really needs to retire this offseason but he probably wont cause he has money problems
