So much rides on the shoulders of kickers. While their task seems to be simple, they have to overcome enormous pressure when the game is on the line, to nail, what could be, the deciding factor in a game. 

The San Francisco 49ers were put in a tough spot leading up to the Super Bowl: whether to stick with their kicker, David Akers, or not. Boomer Esiason joins Bleacher Report's Behind the Mic to discuss what is going on with the 49ers kicker. 

Did Harbaugh make the right decision by sticking with Akers, or should he have made a move weeks ago? 

Watch now to find out what Boomer thinks about this kicker situation in San Fran and don't forget to tune into Behind the Mic, only on Bleacher Report.
