LOL yup totally agree. But this is Niner Talk
Guy is a great signing. We comp[lained about Akers all season and when we sign the best kicker last year everyone complains. The guy is not going anywhere. He played for Seely while in Cleveland. I have to admire a kicker that asks for permission to go to the stick when the weather is bad to kick, so he knows how to approach it when the games start. I never heard of that before by a kicker.
Signing Dawson also frees up a draft pick that can be packaged in a trade in the early rounds. Like I said before this is a good move. But you can't satisfy everyone
