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.

Vernon Davis talks about an epic finish and the game ahead at Candlestick.
When 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was watching the Giants-Packers game on Sunday, he admitted he "prayed" for the Giants to win, so the NFC championship game would be played in San Francisco. His prayers were obviously answered. Whether or not that's a good thing for the Niners remains to be ...
An enigmatic player for San Francisco for six seasons, Vernon Davis lived up to his star potential against the New Orleans Saints.
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. It used Chyrst’s familiarity with the Saints from his days in Carolina. Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports did a great job detailing the origin of the…
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. When he broke down in tears, I couldn'...
While fans in San Francisco have been celebrating "The Grab" that thrust Alex Smith and Vernon Davis to the national scene, there's a pair of hands on the New York Giants making just as much news.
Talk about heart stopping. The San Francisco 49ers win over the New Orleans Saints in the final seconds will always be remembered in franchise history. How the touchdown from Alex Smith to Vernon Davis that propelled the 49ers to the NFC Championship will be referred to is still waiting to be written. My vote is for The Catch 3.0. Before the game the 49ers were not given...
Antrel Rolle is glad to have answered Vernon Davis' prayers. But he has a warning for the 49ers tight end and his teammates: Be careful what you wish for.
