Akers bears no ill will toward Birds
"All I can say is that Philadelphia's been a huge blessing in my life," said Akers, whose family remains in South Jersey. "I spent a third of my life there; two of my children were born there; all three of them have been raised there; I've got so many friends that are almost like family to me. "My residence is right across the river there, and I just can't say enough for the organization for the way they gave me the opportunity to make it in the NFL. This list goes on and on. "Some people are like, 'Are you bitter about this and that?' No. It's part of the business. You come; you go. But Philly, that's where my home is. I will always be grateful, and I'll be back after the season."

Sunday a must-win for Vick, Reid, Eagles - NFC East Blog - ESPN
As early as it might still be in this young and crazy NFL season, Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers is nothing less than a must-win for Reid and the Eagles. A loss wouldn't eliminate the Eagles or get Reid fired, as some overreactive fans wish it would. But to lose at home to an NFC West team and wake up Monday morning at 1-3 would expose Reid to two things he doesn't appear to handle well -- adversity and outside criticism.
