The team has plenty of leaders - Gore, Eric Heitmann, Bruce, Hill, Willis, Clements, Spikes, Michael Lewis, Jeff Ulbrich, Joe Nedney. They don't need to burden Davis with an unneeded chore

During a 49ers practice last week, Shaun Hill hit Vernon Davis in stride with a pass. But the ball clanked off the tight end's hands and tumbled to the turf.
Since it was supposed to be the final play of the drill, players began to disperse — until Coach Mike Singletary stopped them cold.
"Run that play again," he bellowed.
Then, directing his comments at Davis, Singletary yelled, "Come on, son, catch the ball. You have great hands."
The do-over had no chance — defenders smothered the tight end and the pass fell incomplete — but Singletary's point was made: The 49ers want more out of Davis and they're going to keep pushing until they get it.Article'
Lynch can say whatever he wants, but it's obvious Sing is expecting more out of Davis. Which I'm glad to see, hope to see it show in on-field production.
