What options do we have besides Cundiff?


The Norweigan FTW. He hits multiple GWs and becomes the greatest kicker in the history of football.


I'm literrally crossing my fingers that we sign this guy before the playoffs.


Why because he makes some fancy kicks...i saw this over a week ago and didnt even entertain the thought... the corner kicks were kinda impressive but totally useless, and 90% of the other ones could have taken 100 takes each.

I think we should bring in Cundiff to handle kicks up to 40ish yards and just cross our fingers with Akers from any farther.. Didn't the Ravens or Saints do this with Cundiff a few years ago in the playoffs?

And actually, GW, it would probably work nicely with Longwell

He can't be worse than Akers. Or... *shudders at the thought... Billy Cundiff.

Akers has been bad no doubt, but I doubt this kid has ever kicked in front of 1000 people let alone 55,000...ill pass

With David Akers struggling, 49ers are bringing kickers to San Francisco for workouts, including Billy Cundiff and Justin Medlock.

Honestly anything is better than Akers right now. It seems like his cofidence is shot. If we do end up signing Cundiff I will still be crossing my fingers each FG attempt though.

I can get over another kicker missing a crucial kick...not Akers. Dude is done. He's the kicker Philly cut. What sucks is we didn't use Arz gm to get a new kicker some gm kicks to get the rust off.
