@Rwy in Sight, The autopilot won't sort out a bad situation, only the pilots can do that - hence there are two (supposedly) fully qualified pilots on every commercial flight above a certain size.

I think it is the phrase "Kicking it straight" that some object to; nothing needs to be actually kicked.

However, yawing your aircraft to align with the runway as you flare is entirely sensible...
