NFL Rumors: Will David Akers Kick For San Francisco 49ers Against Baltimore Ravens?
Throughout the entire 2012 season, there’s been plenty of reason for concern over San Francisco 49ers kicker David Akers after he only connected on 29 of 42 field goals–which is rare considering he established a reputation for being one of the greatest kickers of all time during his stint with the Philadelphia Eagles. What’s even more frustrating is Akers missed another field goal from 38-yards out against the Atlanta Falcons during Sunday’s NFC Championship game that could have played a huge difference maker in the outcome–leaving many to wonder whether or not the 49ers will go with someone else at kicker in New Orleans.
One of the hottest NFL rumors this week involves Akers and the chances of San Francisco going with another kicker against the Baltimore Ravens in a few weeks–which wouldn’t be a surprise considering the battle at kicker before the Divisional Round against the Green Bay Packers. Keep in mind the 49ers were considering the possibility of using Billy Cundiff at one point during the playoffs–so Akers’ job security seems like anything but secure at this point.
It’s difficult to determine the reasoning behind Akers and his struggles this season, but the one thing that is certain is the last thing San Francisco wants to see happen is have one of his kicks prevent the team from winning the title this season. With the way the big show has gone down over the last couple of years, the intense matchup between the 49ers and Ravens could easily come down to a field goal.
And if that kicker ends up being Akers–San Francisco could be in trouble if he continues to struggle.
