49ers coach Jim Harbaugh apparently can’t decide which of his kickers to use against the Packers in Saturday’s divisional playoff game at Candlestick Park.
Per The Associated Press, Harbaugh said there is a “good chance” both David Akers and Billy Cundiff will be on the roster for Saturday’s game but didn’t specify whether each would be active.
Harbaugh said “we have a leader in the clubhouse,” but wouldn’t say who it is.
The 49ers signed Cundiff on Jan. 1 to compete for a job with the struggling Akers, who has made just 29 of 42 field goals this season after connecting on 44 of 52 in 2011.
Akers tied an NFL record with a 63-yard field goal against the Packers at Lambeau Field in the first week of the regular season.
Akers’ 69% conversion rate still ranks better than Packers kicker Mason Crosby, who made 21 of 33 (63.6%) field goal attempts during the regular season.
Despite his struggles the Packers decided not to bring in another kicker to challenge Crosby, who has made his last five field goals, including a 20-yarder in Saturday’s playoff win over Minnesota.
