    I like Akers...had a rough stretch last year but is otherwise money...as Skippy was for a long while before the bottle consumed him.

    Might be on the downside a little but he's an upgrade on what we have. So if all things equal and it's him or what we have, I say Yes. Kickers are hard to predict. So many through the years were written off by one team after a long stay and flourished somewhere else. So it's worth looking at.

    i get force fed eagles games...he was terrible last year. weak leg, poor accuracy, and his kid was diagnosed with luekemia....kickers are unstable to begin with, that just makes him untouchable at this point in his career imo

    I agree, watching almost every Eagles game I'll pass on him.

    I'd bring him in just for the competition and see if he got his head straight. Last year was bad for Akers but other than that he was money for the Eagles.

    I also think when the labor situation is ended they pickup Kai Forbath for a look see.
