Dempsey's 63 yrd FG record broken?
 
Did I just hear that right on SF game?

Not broken , but tied.

San Francisco 49ers: Akers' 63-yard field goal sends 49ers into halftime with a 16-7 lead over the Green Bay Packers - San Jose Mercury News

I just turned on the 49's game and thought I heard that.

Records are made to be broken.
We all had wished that Morten Anderson would have done so during his Saints years.
Sort of keep it in the Saints ' family.

From what I heard the record was tied, 63, which Jason Elam (Denver I believe) had already done. I could be wrong tho. It said "63" on the screen as I watched him kick it. It will be all over the highlight shows if he broke it.

Yes, tied. I had to fact check and then edit my post. Oh well, good for him.

We still own the record because we did it old school.

Tied it. It hit the bar and bounced over.

Impressive! I have been on a practise field with two kickers who were hitting 65 yard fieldgoals and it really is a sight to behold.

it will be broken eventually - but how many major records have stood for so long?


40 years?

I am sure that who ever breaks the record - it will not stand nearly as long,

But the thing I admire about the record is - bot just that it was one of the most thrilling moments in sports history, or that it was achieved by a disabled person - but that he was strictly speaking - an average kicker.

He was an "everyman" proving that on sometimes we can all rise to the occasion.
