Jim Harbaugh Losing Patience With K David Akers' Missteps
49ers kicker David Akers missed a 39-yard field-goal attempt late in the first quarter of Sunday night's win over New England, his latest misstep in a wildly inconsistent season. Akers is 25-for-35 on field-goal tries this season, and head coach Jim Harbaugh clearly is losing patience, Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Akers came back to make two short field goals later in the game, from 20 and 28 yards.
"Specialists sometimes only get four or five opportunities a game, and you've got to make the play," Harbaugh said Monday. "You've got to see him do it, got to see him make those plays."
Harbaugh insisted Akers is still part of the team. Asked if there was any thought to making a change, Harbaugh replied, "No, not at this time."
