Akers: 'Just trying to get the rhythm'
49ers kicker David Akers explains the goals the team has heading into the first preseason game.
Same way you do for for practice and you just trying to get the the rhythm it. Time it snapper holder just trying to kind of killed off -- you you're last year. And that's kind of the idea of the whole offseason is just can't get so they can work on the finite. Pieces of things that might help you. You know -- on this one or two here and there yeah obviously that's our that's our goal I mean you go into the season and -- 100% it. Likely it is that happened and is the real strong -- tried to. Find a way to make your misses be not as costly for the team that played in a lot of different games and a lot of different stadiums in a lot of different. You know climates and so. This time a year it's generally quite a bit windier and it has gets a little bit easier. As far as the toughness of the wins is that as the season progresses -- and I've been told. Seem like it kind of went that way last year is very windy in the pre season innings and a pretty nice there through the mid part of the season so. You know we -- really fortunate as a great weather last year I think her across the league and really great weather. It's again looking back in the east Leighton for the -- -- economy and Alan and -- and thinking you know goodness I'm I'm not there anymore you straight. But that didn't happen last year. Trade for this year. I think it does indeed leave it I said Dave you figure out candlestick when you realize you can't figure out. Project that it helmet off thinks that lets me sleep better at night. Thinking what is meaningless when you're not you feel what you feel at that instant. Fletcher got takeovers and just play that type of you know win percent. It's always a nice opportunity when it goes and you know but if it didn't go whenever I would -- -- a great -- That was a -- was tough game you know I really felt we're gonna win that game coming down even in regulation that we're gonna get that that fumble there and and it didn't happen. And going and going forward I mean he is trying to have a death you know take get all -- and and try to learn from mistakes and you try to fix and go on. I'm one for six in that game -- -- -- is there a common denominator in me you know in the NFC champs of game that. What is great you know just DL would be in that. Sort of opportunity last year the way that team -- I struggled a little bit in years past -- -- kind of get a resurgent. You know people in this area of the Bay Area were really supportive. The niners and and how we were able to us to have a greats of the -- season last year. So it's trying to hopefully keep that snowball and keep that momentum going and and get into the season is. Certain regular season it's it's a test in the beginning right with the Packers. I'm very much pleased -- -- -- -- -- were employed and so. You know obviously we we go out we try to do the best we can. For the team and I do it that. We get to have a job and support our families as well so. We tried -- three you know try to be as best we can but -- -- fourth area to win with our line and and they do such a great job so there're couple things that -- we -- needed to work -- slash -- blocks in there and whether or not I needed to speed up on time -- with those guys. Try to figure out some some ways it kinda alleviate that -- The the misses me it's hard enough to make kicks you know we start have a blocks in that that in there it's. You don't wanna get that change of possession and big moment and change to the to your opponent so -- wanting I think we really wanted to work on as a unit this year.
