VD looking out for the team and not himself.


Training my friend, training. The young lad is being tutored by Mike Singletary on how to be a man. The light bulb may be starting to click on with Davis after getting some special handling by Singletary.
until his first unsportsman-like conduct penalty. I'll be impressed when he just hands the ball to the ref and goes back to the f**king huddle. It remains to be seen if he can have the maturity to be captain, it'll be great if he does.

I agree with some of the other guys, that this is probably a maturity building tactic by Singletary. Sure the guy is probably going to slip up from time to time, but I think overall he is not a guy that is going to screw up the team with stupid antics. Things could be worse. There are a lot of dumbasses that do much more stupid sh*t than Davis in the NFL.

Okay, he'll lead the team in the coin toss. Now, Vern, go lead the team in catches over the middle, YAC's, and TD's.

I don't want him to just hand the ball off and go back to the huddle. You need emotion to play sports. I don't want penalties either, I just want him to restrain himself and celebrate with his teammates like everyone else.
I hope he scores 2 TD's on Sunday
You know what is odd? I recollect in an old article during training camp VD calling out Crabtree. Saying something to the effect that Crabs should of signed immediately and report to camp. VD further stated that Crabs was only hurting himself, which has obviously been debated to the Nth degree here.

Just a thought.

Unfortunately for Vernon emotion and penaties go hand in hand. Once he learns how to restrain himself he will be a better player for it. Teammates won't respect a captain who pounds his chest after a 3 yard gain. Team captains are supposed to lead by example. I'm not saying he has to be emotionless, just don't hurt the team.

You don't understand WHY he's doing this? You're a smart dude SD, come on.
Vernon's only sin is that he wants to win SO badly. Yes, he is a showboat, but after the pants dropping / winners / shower escape, the only scrape has been ONE, I repeat it ONE fight in training camp.

Vernon wants to be great individually and now it seems he has shown team loyalty. Brent Jones (soft mitts) he is not. Why try to make him that. He is what he is, a great blocker. Great speed and strength. GIVE HIM THE BALL IN THE FLAT. I repeat GIVE HIM THE BALL IN THE FLAT. He made that nice over the shoulder catch in the end zone last year but no one will confuse him with John Frank (whose hands were so good he retired to be a plastic surgeon lol), The Ghost, Kellen Winslow.

Jamie Williams got a lot of respect around here for being 1) personable; 2) articulate; 3) a hard nosed player; 4) could catch a pass now and then

Instead of focusing on him being Click Clack #6, lets focus on what Vernon has become. A still emerging player. Singletary thinks he is growing up as a leader. Probably the best blocking tight end in the league BAR NONE (sorry Floyd); a Pro Bowl Third alternate. What's Michael Huff up to?

After his famous benching by Singletary, how many unsportsmanlike conduct penalities did he get the rest of the year? I don't know, but I don't recall it being some kind of regular occurance.
