Nows there a surprise...a Deadskin fan rooting against the Eagles. 8-o

Akers was hands down a hero, but I'm still disappointed that the Eagles hadn't prepared for this scenario.


Valiant effort that paid off with a win. Now the repercussions: he's got a torn hammy that will probably affect him the rest of the season. I guess Reid asked him if he was okay to play and Akers said he was, but that's what any player would say! It's a coach's and medical staff's responsibility to evaluate a player's injury...not the player. Case and point: Randy Moss last year.

Oh well, I don't have him on my fantasy team or anything and what he did was truly heroic....just don't know if it was worth it in the long run.
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?

Yep, he deserves some credit, but sadly i would reccommend dropping him this week for the CIN or CAR kicker if either is available on the WW, Akers more than likely wont be starting this week and even if he does he wont be used much and wont be kickin extra points.

I know what a hamstring injury from personal experience. If you kick once and it pulls, it's not going to feel any better the next time you kick. As a matter of fact, you could injure yourself permanently.

Shame on the Eagles for putting Akers in a situation where he is their only competent kicker.


Exactly. Mad props to David Akers, though.[/b]

Akers won't be playing this or next week either, from what I heard.

He's gonna need a prop to help him stand if he keeps playing around with that hammy. I don't see what all the fuss is about, he was only doing his job. Isn't he like a blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do? Aren't those guys supposes to have superior flexibility and such to begin with? Also, he missed 2 kicks in the season opener that cost his team the game, no props there, huh?

Players play through injuries all the time, why the mad props to Akers for making a kick? :-?

because he played with a torn hammy, which is serious for a kicker, especially if it's your plant leg!

Definitely a big ;-D to Akers. Watching him go down after having to do the kickoff the for the second time at the beginning I though that he wouldn't be back for a while, but a big :-t to the Eagles for not having at least 1 other guy who could be even decent as a kicker.
