Simoneau the kicker
Eagles kicker David Akers did not kick the extra point after the fourth TD.
Back on November 12, 2004, special teams coach John Harbaugh had this to say during a news conference----
On how K David Akers feels: "David has a hip flexor thing, we're resting him during the week. He should be fine for Monday night."
On whether he thought of bringing in an emergency kicker: "No. He'll be fine for Monday night."
At that time, he worked out someone else.
On whether linebacker Mark Simoneau is getting extra reps at kicker: "We had tryouts yesterday, full tryouts. (TE) Chad (Lewis) looked good. He was the guy kicking. Mark has a foot deal so he hasn't really done anything and Chad looked good kicking. We will not need a backup kicker."
So today's extra point by Simoneau should come as no surprise.
(Akers had a hamstring injury and there was no word on his return.)
