    Its not like Aikers missed a chip shot, playing away, with the game on the line in overtime, a 51 yard FG is not automatic.
    It was last year for the most part.

    If you get paid $3.5 million to make field goals, you have to make that kick indoors with no wind. I'm not saying to cut him since there isn't a better option right now, but if he doesn't fix this problem, the 49ers should cut him in the offseason and bring in another option.

    Akers has not been dependable, I'm really surprised by it.

    agreed. anyone that pins even half of the loss on Akers is just being one of those fans that always has to have a scapegoat for losing.

    While Akers should be cut...not til the offseason. Our offense needs to get him closer than 50+ yards out...

    I agree Akers has had a terrible year, but how many unemployed kickers do you think are out there that can nail a 50+ yarder regularly. He did nail his other 2 right down the middle, and Megaleg or whatever they call him also missed a long one. I can forgive misses of 50+, but the tie on our record shouldn't be there, he missed a mid 30 yarder in OT in that game. That one's not forgivable for someone of his caliber. Whats Nedney up to these days? lol

    Why the 49ers would play for a 50+ yard field goal I have no idea. Once they got in that range they called three straight run plays. It's no secret that Akers has struggled this year from 40+ yards out. Set him up to fail. Set the team up to fail.

    The coaching baffles me some times. How can they look like the best coaching staff in the league, then look like a high school coaching staff? I mean seriously, knowing your kicker is struggling, your going to send him out there for a 50+ yard field goal? Seriously? I mean it seriously seems like Harbaugh coaches to lose sometimes like its a strategy or something

    I agree he should go... he just isn't right and has cost us 2 wins.

    BUT... who would take his place? Would you really feel more comfortable with Cundiff or Kaeding? Neither are really a big improvement imo.

    Eh, I'm not really big on drafting kickers. Plus, that kid has missed a bunch of extra points. I'd rather just sign a veteran who has an expiring contract at the end of the year. Phil Dawson and Rob Bironas will both be free agents and good options to consider.

    What difference does it make who misses the FG? Cut him on principle at this point. He has probably in fact cost a 1st round bye. Only person I would put as much blame is Walker with Harbaugh close behind for being so poorly outcoached by the same guy twice in one year.

    Ok...here's another angle based on reading some of the posts defending Akers.

    Nobody in here can say the Niners respect all of their opponents. Even in Willis' little pregame thing with the team he was saying the Rams were only in the last game because they didn't get the Niners best shot. No respect at all for the opponent. Now the D did play lights out and that's great, but it's pretty obvious that the team all the way up and down to include the coaching staff doesn't respect every opponent like they should. A message needs to be sent to the whole team that you can't just show up collect a paycheck and expect teams to roll over for you.

    Cutting a veteran sends a message. If it were me...Walker and Akers would both be gone. It weakens the team a little bit...but I think the message it would send to everybody would be worth it. The team playing good ball without those two will be better than a team going through the motions with them.
