49ers Sign Billy Cundiff To Compete With Struggling David Akers

David Akers, one of the best kickers in the history of the NFL, is having a rough year. He is 29-42 on field goals this season, including a 7-13 mark from 40-49 yards. As a result, the San Francisco 49ers have signed Billy Cundiff to compete with him for the kicking job for the playoffs, in which the 49ers have a first round bye.

There’s only one problem with this move: Billy Cundiff is terrible.

Cundiff this season is 7-12 on field goals with a long of 45 yards, which is obviously not a trustworthy mark for a kicker in the NFL. He racked up those numbers as a member of the Washington Redskins, who cut him in early October.

He was also responsible for this, one of the worst misses in NFL playoff history, costing the Baltimore Ravens a berth in the Super Bowl last season.

Akers should win this competition to keep his job, unless Cundiff has somehow improved dramatically over the last few months.
