After reading Bye Dawk:('s last post on '04 vs '09 defenses, it got me thinking when I came to Mark Simoneau. I don't think any of our linebackers this year can kick. While i love Akers to death, it probably wouldn't hurt to have a back up kicker. God forbid something happens to him, it would suck to have to get one mid year. I hate to bring it up, but also, Akers isn't quite the automatic he once was. Part of that I think comes from Detmer not holding, but we should never have to worry about a PAT. It might not hurt to start thinking about the future.
