San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis recorded six catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in Colin Kepernick's first start.  Since then, Davis's numbers have dropped, which he blames on a lack of chemistry with his new quarterback. "We don't have it," Davis said, via The Sacramento Bee. "You have to expect (that because) he just stepped in. Me and Alex -- we've been there. It takes time. It took time for me and Alex to get like that. It's like it's starting all over again, especially for me." Davis added: "In practice, he would overthrow me," Davis said. "I think he's just kind of scared on my speed a little bit. He doesn't really know it. We don't have that timing. It'll come. Just like any quarterback and any wide receiver. It takes time. … That's what makes football that much more interesting and fun." Davis has made it known that he prefers Alex Smith over Kaepernick as he has just four catches for 29 yards with zero touchdowns since Kaepernick's first start. The 49ers hope Kaeperncik and Davis can get on the same page as the seven-year pro is a nice weapon to have come playoff time.     H/T: NFL.com
