Doesn't make a difference Vernon Davis is still the far more gifted TE. The only thing Gronk has over VD is a far better QB and a heavily pass offense
Better hands, better body control, better receiver..
put Vernon in the Pats offense with Tom Brady and I guarantee he'd put up Gronk numbers, if not better.
he put up nearly 1000 yards and 13 TDs with Shaun Hill/Alex Smith as his QB under Jimmy Raye's offense one year. No doubt he could get 400 more yards and 4 more TDs with Brady in the Patriot's system (matching Gronk's numbers)
Vernon is the all around best TE in the game, when it comes to receiving, blocking, athleticism, mismatches, whatever. Vernon could do everything. No way Gronk can do what Vernon did in last postseason.
Just my opinion
