Heading into the playoffs, the San Francisco 49ers brought in free agent kicker Billy Cundiff to battle struggling placekicker David Akers. Cundiff was eventually released, but one has to wonder after last night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, if the Niners will bring Cundiff back as the team prepares for the Super Bowl.

Frank Gore of the San Francisco 49ers scored a TD in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship game to give the Niners their first lead of the day. Gore then proceeded to twist the knife deeper into the Atlanta Falcons’ thigh by doing his rendition of the ‘Dirty Bird’ touchdown celebration.
For those of you who have lived under a rock for the past 30 years, the Dirty Bird...
The game started off rough. 17-0, but the 49ers hung in there and did what they needed to, to come back and win 28-24.
