San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh had dubbed his team's playoff road as 'three Super Bowls'. "We'll look at it as three Super Bowls that we have to play and win," Harbaugh said Wednesday on KNBR 680-AM via the San Jose Mercury News. "That's just extremely fun to think about that and the excitement of that, because it's so immediate, it's so now. It's not like the beginning of the season when you're thinking of long-term." With the being said, Harbaugh has a little kicker situation to grab a hold of before their NFC divisional matchup. The team signed kicker Bill Cundiff Tuesday to compete with David Akers ahead of their playoff opener on Jan. 12th, but the goal here is to decide this competition sooner than later. "It could be settled early next week but I'm not going to put a timeframe on it," Harbaugh said. "We'll practice Thursday, Friday and then we'll see if a decision is made, or if it goes into Monday, Tuesday, or after. But there's no timeline on it." var switchTo5x=true;
