Akers cut

I hated his guts during the season, but I still wish him the best. He's a good guy, and despite our worst fears, he didn't cost us in the post season.

we need to find our own LEGatron in the draft we have enough picks
Can we get a Clydesdale from one of those budwiser commercial?

Maybe he injured himself on that kick

There are three prospects who should be available in the fifth or sixth and two of them have real strong legs. I've really never seen anything like what happened to Akers. If you watched him in pregame warmups, it was always the same. He'd be knocking everything in from all angles and distances. Then the game would start and he'd go to hell. Very strange mental block.

Forget bringing in an old, worn out retread. Draft a kicker in rd 4 or 5. Pay him league minimum. Watch him be better than Akers this year.

Draft the kicker from Florida or FSU.
Almost cost us a first round bye.

We are 13-3 again without this asshat

Has this guy been cut yet?
I like this decision. He was elite one season for us and cost us several games the next. He kicked a 63 yarder and then missed some 30 yarders. Plus he is 38 and has seen some wear and tear.

We need a fresh young kicker from the draft. Take a page from the Ravens and draft a long term solution so when we are inside 50 we are getting the 3 points automatic.
