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.

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.

Re: Dempsey's 63 yrd FG record broken?

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.
