David Akers Anyone?

He struggled last year a bit. But has shown that he can produce at times. Not sure if he is an upgrade but has a stronger leg than Gaham. Over the 80% mark for his career. Up and down the last few years though.

Just an idea.

I like him more than Shayne Graham. Sorry, but that project failed IMO. He just doesn't seem to have the leg anymore...

He's been more down than up the last few years. His time in the league will expire soon imo.

Saints had one like Akers, his name was Hartley!

I want to watch the entire game and not turn away when a field goal is attempted like I did with Hartley.
