He looked great the last 4 games last year, so he isn’t a bum.What is there to showcase? Teams know what Akers is.if you are gonna showcase someones talent, you actually have to give them meaningful carries.Weird that all off season not even a peep. Why wait until after week 1?
My guess is that Akers was on double-secret probation from last year’s antics and “one more slip-up” was all it took.
Another possible situation is that McVay made a decision a while back that Akers is not his guy and he tried to use Week 1 to showcase Akers talent soley for trade purposes.
garbage time carries dont mean much
