Vernon Davis is an emotional guy. If you weren’t aware of that before last weekend, I’m sure you are now.  By now we have all seen this picture of Davis one place or another.  If the Niners go on to win the Super Bowl, it will likely be the moment that sticks out in everyone’s mind from their playoff run.  Considering he is such an emotional guy, it comes as no surprise that Davis would speak highly of his teammates — even if it makes little sense. “(Alex Smith is) a strong guy. He’s a warrior,” Davis said during an interview KNBR in San Francisco. “When I look at him that’s what I look at him as. He’s been through so much and been criticized. A lot of people have talked about Alex Smith and he’s by far the strongest individual that I have ever seen in my life, mentally and physically.” There may not be a player in the league that is strongly physically than Davis himself.  He should have left it at mentally, which would have been fine and is something we can’t measure.

The game-winning toss from Alex Smith to Vernon Davis last week came directly from quarterbacks coach Geep Chyrst. The play, called “Vernon Post,” was only installed a week ago.

Divisional weekend’s five most valuable players

Vernon Davis, Tight End, San Francisco 49ers. When people called this the Year of the Tight End, no one even really had Vernon Davis in mind. Somehow, though, on Sunday, he became the dominant force he was always supposed to be. Too fast for linebackers to cover, too big for corners or safeties, Davis finally made big play after big play.
