• 'Good chance' 49ers carry both Akers, Cundiff

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jan 7, 2013
    Harbaugh said it's "conceivable" both Akers and Cundiff could be on the active roster for Saturday's game. David Akers and Billy Cundiff were taking their competition to be San Francisco's playoff kicker to Candlestick Park on Monday. Akers missed overtime kicks twice against the Rams this season, with the 49ers losing at St. Louis and tying at home. As 49ers fans know all too well, Akers, 38, created the need for this competition by losing his once-automatic accuracy. Here's a relevant tidbit on Cundiff, the 32-year-old brought aboard last week: In 114 career games, including the playoffs, he has not kicked at Candlestick. Five days ahead of their NFC divisional playoff game against Green Bay, the 49ers held another phase of their kicking duel - not in Santa Clara but up the road at the creaky old Stick. Coach Jim Harbaugh said there's a "good chance" both kickers will be on the roster for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, though he didn't specify whether each would be among the 46 active players but did say "that's conceivable."
