David Akers and the Packers game, looking back.

During the wildcard game everyone on here and myself included gave Akers a bunch of shit for missing those field goals. Well, now we know why he was off his game.

Long story short if you don't want to read the article:

"After David Akers missed two kicks in the Philadelphia Eagles' playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers earlier this month, safety Quintin Mikell said his teammate was distracted by an off-field issue.

His agent, Jerrold Colton, said it was a "private family health concern". Akers had been silent on the issue but told The Philadelphia Inquirer in a story that appeared in Sunday's editions that his 6-year-old daughter Halley had a malignant cyst in her left ovary that was removed in the week after the game."
