San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis scored a touchdown in the third quarter of Sunday's game at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers and celebrated with his signature move of dunking the football over the crossbar of the goalpost...or at least he tried to.
Unfortunately, Davis was a few inches short in his leap and got "rejected" by the crossbar. Looks like Davis needs some extra practice next week.

One of the best trends of the last decade or so in the NFL is the increasing number of college basketball players that have been converted to tight ends. It started with Tony Gonzalez, then Antonio Gates, now Jimmy Graham from the Saints. Right in the middle of the athletic basketball playing tight end explosion, there was San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis.
Thanks to our friends at CosbySweaters.com we have this wonderful footage of 49ers tight end Vernon Davis attempting to dunk a football after scoring a touchdown.
After the ball clunked off of the cross bar and went forward, David Akers tied the NFL record for the longest field goal at 63 yards. His reaction was priceless, as was those of his teammates. Not only did they act like he helped them win the Super Bowl, but he looked completely shocked. The video is below:

GREEN BAY, Wis. – On a normal day David Akers tying an NFL record on a 63-yard field goal would have been the lead story from a regular season game.
But when his team the San Francisco 49ers serves up a very confident win over the NFC’s team to beat, his accomplishment becomes one piece of a very large pie.
From the first tick off the game clock, Green Bay was snuffed out in...
The Lambeau Field crowd watched as San Francisco 49ers kicker David Akers made a record-tying 63-yard field goal as seconds ticked away at the end of the first half.
Jim Harbaugh would love it if his postgame handshake with Detroit coach Jim Schwartz last season were ancient history 11 months later.
If only. Not this week. Not with two unbeaten NFC powers set to face off in prime time Sunday night, when the Lions visit the reigning NFC West champion San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park.
Harbaugh refers to it as a ''mini controversy...

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer The San Francisco 49ers showed all the same poise and big playmaking ability - not to mention dominant defense against NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers - in a season-opening statement victory at Green Bay as they did in coming so close to a Super Bowl last season.
Who said the reigning NFC West champions couldn't do it...
Not suiting up for the 49ers season opener are: WR/returner Ted Ginn Jr. (right ankle), RB Brandon Jacobs (left knee), QB Scott Tolzien, RB LaMichael James, TE Garett Celek, NT Ian Williams, G Joe Looney.
Ginn and Jacobs didnt practice all week because of their injuries.
James inactivation isnt a total surprise, though it does leave the 49ers very thin with options at...
Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesOne of the most memorable times with Randy Moss and his rivalry against the Green Bay Packers has got to be when he mooned the crowd when he was a member of the Minnesota Vikings.Well, the veteran wide receiver is back and back with vengeance. Now a member of the San Francisco 49ers, Moss decided to play around with the Packers fans again at Lambeau Field...
Maybe they can shake hands and put the issue behind them for good.
All eyes will certainly be on Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh when they meet up in Week 2 in a rematch of the 49ers’ 25-19 victory over the Lions at Ford Field last season. Following the Week 6 game, Harbaugh aggressively shook Schwartz’s hand as he ran off the field...

Better than last year?
The San Francisco Defense. Okay, fine. The San Francisco 49ers might just have the best defense in the NFL. Blah. It kills me to say that. Not because I despise the other teams in the NFC West, but before, the 49ers could have a good-to-great...
Which way does the thumb turn for the 49ers after their momentous 30-22 victory over the Green Bay Packers to open the season, including a “miracle” field goal by David Akers, a coltish Frank Gore, a battling but bloodied Joe Staley, Alex Smith on his A game, a vintage defensive performance, Randy Moss in the clear, a Colin Kaepernick cameo, Vernon Davis’ TD rejection and much...
They are the difference makers, the scapegoats, and the late round pick in your fantasy draft—kickers, punters, and long snappers often go undrafted, unappreciated, and generally fly under the radar if they are doing their job right.Headlines are usually made when a snap is muffed, a kick is botched, or a punt is blocked; however, in the opening week of NFL play, it was the special...
