Quote: Davis’ stat line of 14 catches for 168 yards and 2 touchdowns looks even more impressive compared to his 16-game results from last season of 31 catches for 358 yards and 2 touchdowns. At this time last year, Davis only had four catches for 68 yards.
So what’s changed?
“You grow,” Davis explained. “You’re developing not just as a player but as a person. When you develop as a person, you fine tune yourself. You figure out that it’s not just about you, it’s about the team and the contributions you make on the field, helps the team.”
Now obviously, he's getting targeted more than in previous seasons (more than any other receiver on the 49ers), but he's also making the catches he dropped in seasons past.
Do you guys feel like he may be the best TE in the game? I'm starting to think he might be, before this season he was looked at as the best blocking TE in the NFL. Now that he leads the league not just TE's in TD rec and is playing extremely well not to mention his new found leadership as a captain on the team (great move by Sing the importance shouldn't be downplayed VD takes it very seriously) he may not be #1 right now but the guy is very very close.
Patrick Willis and Vernon Davis - the 2 consistent bright spots on our team in the first 7 games. It's simply amazing how much Vernon has changed in one off season. Sure, there were some other factors at play, but end of the day, a man has to want to change for it to happen. All the credit to him.
Glad he's leading the NFL in TDs.
personally I don't think there is anything wrong with Raye the team just needs to learn yet another system and the offensive line needs a make-over.... Anyone think that shaun hill should be our 3rd stringer and Nate Davis our back up or just me????
