Found January 21, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has already made the decision that David Akers will be his kicker heading into Super Bowl XLVII. “The decision’s already been made,” Harbaugh said, per CSNBayArea.com. “David Akers is our kicker.” I think the best move is to go with Akers.  It’s hard to find a reliable kicker at this point.  They might as well go with guy they’ve had all season.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Jim Harbaugh goes nuts after a controversial call

The Harbaughs Teach us Why Numbers Don't Lie.

A team, player or coach may be at the top of their game but the difference between themselves and others is small. So minute that over the years, timing and luck at times have more to do with success than preparation and execution. Because at...
