    Should The Steelers Be Interested In David Akers?

    The Pittsburgh Steelers saw what could possibly rank as one of the worst missed field goals in Super Bowl history in their big game against the eventual world champion Green Bay Packers. Kicker Shaun Suisham came in for a routine, albeit 52 yard, field goal, and promptly shanked it to the left. And it wasn’t a few inches from going in, or anything like that, it was quite possible that Suisham was suffering from a bit of double vision during the kick.
    Read the rest here.

    At this point I'm all for an open competition for both the Field goal and Punting duties on the Steelers for 2011. While Sushi was very good in the regular season, and I don't knock him for missing that long one in the super bowl, I wouldn't just hand the job over to him. Same for Kapinos, who did pretty well in the limited duty he saw. Once this labor situation gets resolved I would expect them to sign a couple kickers and punters to the roster and let them compete for the job.

    Akers was solid for Philly for a long, long, time. If he wants to come to Pittsburgh I wouldn't have a problem with him auditioning for the job.

    In the playoffs, I wouldn't say Akers was clutch.

    He was also dealing with a cancer diagnosis for his daughter, can't really blame him for not being focused.

    If for nothing else Akers would fit in with the class acts that the team's brought in recently.

    Running the same play through the same hole three times in a row was essentially a Jedi Mind Trick.

    Shows an intelligence above that of average NFL coordinators, the man is a freakin' Jedi. lol.
