Coach Jim Harbaugh said there’s a “good chance” both kickers will be on the roster for Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, though he didn’t specify whether each would be among the 46 active players but did say “that’s conceivable.” Harbaugh indicated one of the two has already earned a lead for the job but wouldn’t say who it is.

Nothing But Good News From Practice As 49ers Wait On Next Opponent

As the 49ers sit back and wait for the rest of the NFC to duke it out in the first round of the playoffs, they can continue to focus on getting healthy and figured out what to do with David Akers. Although there is still a lot to be determined, both of these issues are being addressed, and the team will have a little over a week to determine what direction they want to go in the kicking department, and the status of Justin Smith.

San Francisco 49ers Turn Attention To Kicking Game Woes

David Akers wrapped up a regular season that he would like to forget. Unfortunately, with the playoffs around the corner and a team that needs contributions from all phases, the team can’t forget.

Although the two teams tied last time, nobody gave the Rams a shot in the rematch against the 49ers. San Francisco scored first and it looked like a rout, but St. Louis fought hard for four quarters, forced overtime, earned the upset, and won the season series against the NFC West-leading 49ers.

Akers’ Leg Should Be 49ers’ Top Concern Heading Into Next Week

The big news after the 49ers’ recent tie was the condition of Alex Smith. The team’s starting quarterback suffered a concussion that forced him out of the game, and it showed how vulnerable this team is without Smith. However, the severity of his injury indicates that he will not miss extended time, and instead the team should be more concerned with David Akers and his drop in production this year.

49ers Defense Sends Message In 30-22 Win Over Packers

The San Francisco Defense was the story on Sunday keeping the Green Bay Packers off the scoreboard for most of the game and stepped up late to hold off the Packers rally. Alex Smith was almost as impressive committing zero turnovers and answering each time the Packers threatened to come back and steal the game. The entire team earned a grade of an A and are perhaps the most complete team in the league.
