Akers was money last year. It looks like he's caught a case of Steve Blass Disease.

Although in football we should really call it The Delhommes.

There really ought to be psychological and sports medicine studies on how a B+ QB (I'd put pre-Bad Day Delhomme on par with Flacco) so abruptly becomes a synonym for legendary fail.

He supposedly had double hernia surgery in the off season. I would assume that would fark with your kicking.

They couldn't sign Cundiff if they wanted to. A player cut during the playoffs isn't eligible to sign elsewhere until the offseason.

That was something I'd never seen before. He actually bounced it off the top of the upright. Has that ever happened?

i've not researched the NFL rules on signings, but they're very wonky.  like i heard yesterday that either the Ravens or 49ers signed a 10 day contract with some offensive line coach.  or how teams sign players during the playoffs in general.  or another example, how the Pats signed Josh McDaniels during last year's playoff run.

Ravens signed a 'consulting contract' with Philly's old O-line coach to be a run-game consultant. He will take over as O-Line coach after the Super Bowl. My understanding is that it limits his access to players compared to actually being a coach - but not by much.

And coaches have different rules (and a different union) than players.

yeah, i'm sure he'll have very limited contact with the players.....*wink*......

i doesn't really bother me, and if the NFL hasn't adopted a rule barring it, then game on.  just seems nutty is all i'm saying.  but legal, so, game on.

It does kinda make sense that if people can interview your coordinators while you're in the playoffs, you should be able to hire people back. Otherwise it's a gangbang of all the playoff teams with people stealing their assistants and making sure they get all the first options at anyone else who might be available to fill the holes made.

Yeah, coaching rules are COMPLETELY different than player rules. It seems much less regulated.

the mcdaniels hire was sketchy.....i don't know what his contract status was with the rams, whther they let him walk (resignation, termination, who knows) but it was like, the rams season ends, and within days he's under contract as a patriot.  just odd.

but legal.  good for him. if the NFL doesn't care i'll try not to.

See the thing about a doink is that it doen't sound good, because it isn't good. When a kicker does a doink nothing good comes out of a doink. Akers has to find a way to stop the doink.

The great thing about this is I have no idea whether you made that up or he actually said it. And it doesn't matter because Madden is awesome.

Yeah, the Ravens are totally gonna win now. -_-

As a Niners fan, I'm okay with this. And by okay, I mean completely worried about our kicking, but figuring Akers can't be any worse than Cundiff, and if we're going to miss FGs anyway, I'd rather go with our guy.
 
2013-01-22 03:54:15 PM  
Man, I really want Akers to get a ring after all that time in Philly. His second Superbowl, SEVEN NFC Championship games, numerous other playoff appearances, just let him get a ring.

You're obviously not a real Eagles fan. There wasn't a single threat of violence in that entire post.

Dance with the one that brought you.

Am I the only one that notices that all of his bad misses are on left hash kicks? Get the man on the right hash for crying out loud and at least help yourself out! Then next year draft a kicker in the third round and move on!

Barry McCackiner: Am I the only one that notices that all of his bad misses are on left hash kicks? Get the man on the right hash for crying out loud and at least help yourself out!


All of his kicks sail left regardless of which hash he's on. He can't make a field goal to save his life anymore, which is appropriate because if he misses one in the super bowl, I'm going to kill him.

Dude is just finished. The Niners will just need to go for it on all 4th downs, because Akers is a guaranteed miss. Don't give him the opportunity to burn you, especially now with Captain 3 and out replaced at QB with Kaepernick, the Niners have a real offense for the first time since Jeff Garcia.

that's me with Anquan "The Chainsaw" Boldin.  He had a relatively quiet season but a monster postseason. And although he left Arizona under a cloud, he never quit on the team and by all accounts, is a good guy.  I would love to see him get a ring because all he's done for two franchises is give maximum effort at all times.

I had one side done last year--I'm having the other side done a week from Thursday. It's really, really painful, and the side done last year still hurts often when I move certain ways. I'm sure it's messing with his kicks big time.

Not only that, but apparently he tweaked it in November. So he's hurt.

Yet he can kick 60 yarders in practice, has no problems with the kickoffs and extra points.

/was the double hernia surgery in his hands? They seem to be planted around his neck, come FG time.

how bout we just get rid of kickers altogether since they ruin football.

/ aside from kickoffs
 
2013-01-22 08:30:28 PM  
They should use Andy Lee or Isaac Sopoaga
 
2013-01-22 08:56:41 PM  
Didn't he doink one over the crossbar from 63 yards?
