“I wasn’t mad about having to run gassers,” he said. “I just feel it’s his fourth year now, and I told him it shouldn’t be him now. Everybody makes mistakes but it shouldn’t be him. OK, a rookie? I accept that.”
Gore and Davis have a friendly relationship and joke around frequently in the locker room. Before talking to reporters Saturday, Gore said he had already spoken to the tight end about the matter, telling him: “It’s time to be a man and try to do everything right. There are younger guys who probably look up to you on the team.”
"A few guys were mad, but like I told them you can’t get mad because there will be time you make the rest of us run. I told them they should be happy that I made them run because it’s extra work for us and a chance for us to get better. It keeps our lungs going. If anybody else makes us run, I’ve just got to suck it up. I can’t say nothing." - Vernon Davis' thoughts on the issue
On Defense everyone knows Pats the man, we also got Clements, Spikes to pick up the leadership role. On offense it was always kinda iffy. And ill bet most people think Vernon is a big emerging leader because he gets a lotta headlines. Personally i think Frank is the big guy on offense. Wheter Vernon steps up or not..thank god.
