The Question:
Asking my Eagles writers & fans: Down by two, 2 seconds left in the game, ball on the 44 yard line. Do you send in Akers or is Vick throwing a Hail Mary?

 

The Answers:

Me:
Neither is going to have higher than a 10 percent chance of working, but I would probably take the kick. Akers might surprise us.

Matt Bryant did 62 against us. Maybe Akers could do 61. Maybe.

 

Luther Broughton, Former Philadelphia Eagles Tight End, 1999-2000:
Field goal attempt.

 

Shaun Young, 2009 Pro Football’s Ultimate Fan Association Inductee:
You have to have Vick throw the Hail Mary as 62 is pretty much out of the range for Akers and you have the good possibility of a pass interference call which would give you another opportunity at the one yard line.
