Jim Harbaugh says he’s sticking with David Akers

According to Matt Maiocco of, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that embattled kicker David Akers would keep that job for the Super Bowl.

Akers missed a 38-yarder yesterday, and hit his only attempt in the previous playoff game against the Packers. But he was 29-of-42 in the regular season, and was shaky enough they brought in Billy Cundiff as insurance/motivation.

Given that options aren’t many, pumping up Akers is probably the 49ers’ best play right now.
