49ers sign Billy Cundiff

Originally posted by BayArea:
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.

I am not sold based on how Cundiff performed this year in games.
I wish there was a third option.

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.
wow, you have alot of people inside of you

Over/Under is 5 at the moment.

1. I just want this to be over and not have to deal with this on game week
2 if we do switch kickers,, i would like to have lee get as many reps with billy as possible
3 if akers is indeed hurt then its easy and quick , put him on injured reserve, take your chances with billy, hope for the best and hope akers is strong next year

that last one was tough to type with all of the "hopes" in there

i am very worrying about Bill Cundiff give us for failed in playoff if he will kick the missed goal and keep fail? I will be upset for seroius.. I want Bill Cundiff must practice for kick the balls the goal and keep practice to kick for 2 hours or 3 hours a day and all weeks because playoff is very serious and championship for important!!

THIS IMO FWIW TBPH
If Cundiff misses a game winning field goal in the playoffs... God help us all... We're talking riots in the streets of SF...
Cundiff is/seems like a well spoken dude. I like him, but Akers is our guy.

Didn't John tell Jim about what happened last year?

Those are fair points.
1. I understand but I want to be sure that the team has the best guy out there.
2. I can't imagine that there is not enough time every day for Lee to get in his punts and as many reps with Lee and Akers that they are capable of because none of them practice very hard.
3. I am not sold that a healthy Cundiff is better than a hurt Akers based on how each has performed this year.

Me, Myself, and I are starting to feel really crowded around here. And that doesn't even count the other voices.......
Cundiff was a good kicker when he kicked for the Cowgirls. after that idk what happened to him in his other stints but he's still an upgrade over David Fakers

Take a kicker in the draft and cut ties with both these clowns in the off season. One of these fools is going to cost us.
if harbaugh goes w/ cundiff that will be a huge mistake.....this ass clown talked about going home to phoenix to be with his family over the weekend and then coming back next week. shouldn't u be here practicing all weekend mr cundiff? its the playoffs!

akers has been a beast and he just hit a 54yd fg in seattle i'm sticking w/ akers if i'm harbaugh...the players support him (ie vernon's comments on akers after arizona game)
