Will David Akers be back next season?

Will David Akers be back next season?

Thank you Mr. Akers...and good luck in your future endeavors. You gave us a few nice memories, but methinks it is time to retire.
Possibly.

JH may want to bring him back for TC competition w/newly signed rookie PK.

Doubtful BUT not out of the question.

Kicking with a double hernia seems to be a clear reason to why he was missing kicks... an offseason to heal his body seems like a logical solution
f**k him and his double hernia. i can forgive kyle for a fumble, james for a fumble, craig for a fumble but when a kicker f**ks us over multiple times,, f**k him
After not being able to win two Rams games with very make-able kicks, I'd be astonished if he's back. I just don't think Harbaugh will stand for that kind of thing.

i think the expression on the face of the coach when akers missed a chip shot vs,, help me,,,, in the playoffs,,, falcons maybe right before half?? anyway i think that says it all and i am kind of shocked akers is not gone right now!

He hit the left pole (?) against the Falcons. I got super heated when we weren't able to finish the drive because I knew going for a FG was a gamble in itself.

yes,,,, thank you. The way the coach looked when he hooked it, i assumed akers would be removed from the team at half time and andy lee would punt on the kickoffs in the second half. they just can not bring him back,, can they? we really do not need that drama again
A one legged blind man would be a step up!...

i hate him(not the one legged blind man)
I say maybe with a restructured contract. I think he compensated for his injury and couldn't get his technique back. With an offseason to get healthy he may be back to form.

I'd be shocked. His problem wasn't physical, it was mental. He'd make every kick in pre-game warmups. He'd be just nailing them from everywhere. Then the game would begin and he'd go into the tank. He had the yips. He was a head case. He's gone.

He will absolutely not be back. I'm surprised he wasn't cut during the season!

Had we won the SB, it wouldve been the most amazing tightrope walk of all time for a kicker. I cannot believe that he didnt cost us our division title, our 1st round bye, our Divisional playoff game, our NFC Champ game, OR the SB.

We made it through all that with basically the worst kicker in the NFL, and it never came back to bite us. Unfortunately for Akers, had we won the SB, his horrible season wouldve been totally forgotten. People would just remember the record setting 2011 season, and the SB in 2012.

I don't think so. Even if we won the Super Bowl, nobody would want him back next season because we'd all remember his crappy 2012 season.

Im not saying he wouldve been back, just that his horrible 2012 wouldve been forgotten in the next few years.

He had all of LAST offseason to recovery form the double hernia SURGERY he had last February.

Again, his problem was not physical. He would nail all his kicks in pre-game warmups. He nailed his kicks when he was competing with the other kicker they brought in. It was a mental problem. It only happened during games. He's got a case of the yips.
