I like what I am hearing about Cundiff. Like many others I hear his name and only think about that botched kick in the AFC championship. I tend to overlook that the guy was pretty much automatic anything inside 55 for the Ravens all season before that.

I think Akers is still hurting from that groin or whatever injury he had. Maybe heal him up and he will be good next year and in the meantime we can use this guy. Just hopefully we don't have to put him in position to win a game in the clutch.

I am quoting myself because I want to at least have this pointed out.

Yeah except he was pretty horrible this season with the Skins before he was cut. 7-12 including 2 misses from 30-39 yards.

Ill give him a pass. Akers was pretty horrible with the US this season as well so it can't hurt to try.

He was hitting 75% of his kicks before the Saints game (6 misses in 10 games). 61% since (7 misses in 6 games).

In the end the only thing I can really conclude is that we are in no position to put either kicker in a situation where he either makes it or we lose. Simple as that really. Last year we could lay the whole season on one kick and this season we better not cut it so close or it's a coin toss.

Just another item on the list where we can put "no room for error."

We are walking the tight rope in more ways than one...

But an injured Akers may be better than a healthy Cundiff.
www.rotoworld.com

David Akers (pelvis) revealed Thursday that he underwent surgery last February for a double sports hernia.


Complications from that surgery have been behind his struggles of late. Akers was shaky on the first day of his kicking competition while Billy Cundiff showed a stronger and more accurate leg. "The telling sign to me is the fact he's missing them wide left, which means he's not getting his hips through the ball," ex-49ers kicker Joe Nedney said of Akers. "He's not swinging confidently through the ball." It's premature to predict a winner here, but Cundiff appears to have the edge.

Or maybe not. If Akers pelvis doesn't dramatically get better by next week, as bad as it may sound to some of you, Cundiff would be the safer and better option.
i would be very disapointed if they let this linger into next week. make the decision tomorrow or saturday thus giving lee lots of reps with billy, if that is who they pick

Agreed. Think Harbaugh should name who's going to start at the lastest, next monday.

Ouch...just like the games

Akers is performing realy bad. If Cundiff has any pulse, put him in.

Cundiff is 7-12 this year for 58% and has made zero FG over 50 yards.
I don't feel good about either but I am praying that Akers is feeling better in a week.

Why does Cundiff get a pass? I am not trying to make any point with that question, I am curious to know if there were any unusual circumstances that contributed to his performance for the Redskins.

About the reps with Lee...Isn't there enough time for Lee to work with both of them?

He doesn't but I like him this week based on the most recent performances from both. Not saying we couldn't cherry pick a million instances from each but most recently I got to with the guy who gives us the best chance. Nobody really has earned a pass but I like the guy who isn't hiding or masking injuries and looks like he can hit kicks we need to be a gimme.

In the clutch neither has any merits but when we need the gimme..... s**t I can't really argue against Cundiff in favor of Akers at this point.

What is the hurry to make a decision?
