49ers vs. Falcons, NFC Championship: Jim Harbaugh isn't thrilled with David Akers

USA TODAY Sports

A kicker who got cut from his last team after missing a big-time playoff field goal missed a big-time playoff field goal?

David Akers hasn't been very good this season. He's been so ineffective, in fact, that before the playoffs, the San Francisco 49ers brought in Billy Cundiff, cut from two different teams in 2012, to see if he would be a better idea. Cundiff couldn't win the job, but Akers...yeah, it appears he still has some problems. He doinked a 38-yard field goal — in a dome, it's worth pointing out — that would have tied the AFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons, 24-24. Instead the Niners are still down three.
