49ers Will ‘Evaluate” Kicker Position After Two More Misses By David Akers
After the latest missed field goal in his forgettable season, David Akers trudged to the sideline, violently slammed to his helmet to the ground and sat, alone, near the end of San Francisco’s bench.
The mild-mannered Akers’ frustration had clearly reached a boiling point and, possibly, the 49ers’ have reached their limit with him as well after pushing first-half field-goal attempts of 44 and 40 yards wide left in Sunday’s 27-13 win over Arizona.
In the aftermath of the victory, Jim Harbaugh didn’t assure Akers of a spot on the postseason roster. The 15-year veteran has missed 10 of 19 attempts from at least 40 yards this season and his 69.0 field-goal percentage (29 of 42) ranks 30th in the NFL.
“I don’t know if we have to,” Harbaugh said when asked about possibly changing kickers. “We’ll evaluate the position. It’s his job to make the field goals.”
