Competition For Akers
Akers is still the man from within 4o yards (though Sunday's 38 yarder was a bit unnerving!). But in the NFL, what wins the games for your team is having a kicker that can connect from 40+ when the offense stalls after crossing mid-field.
Right now and over the past few seasons Akers has shown that he can no longer be counted on from long range. He used to be the man, a sure thing, one of the NFL's most dependable kickers. Unfortunately not so much anymore.
Reid is overly loyal to his players, so bringing in a kicker for competition is most likely not going to happen. But since we are in a bye week, why not bring in a kicker. Why not make that kicker John Carney, who looks like he will be released by the Giants and is a perfect 12-12 on field goals this year, including 2-2 from 40+.
Competition can only make one and one's team better right? Yea, not so much with the Eagles.
