Vernon Davis

Teams putting extra attention to stop him is no excuse. Everyone knows Romo is going to Witten, Ryan is going to Gonzalez...etc. You find ways to get them the ball regardless.
well atlanta has 2 #1 WRs in julio jones and white

agree about romo and witten

attention will now stop on VD and shifted on to crabtree ( some not all)

it will open him up more

You got to get him the ball. I've seen him beat double teams for TD's lots of times. If we use Moss a little like we never do it may open some stuff up. Make people respect something else out there for once instead of all concetrating on Davis.
wait until we play a crumby team...
You could say the Niners lost this game in OT with a 1st and 10 at the rams 26, then the conservative play calling. The coaching staff has to know that Akers isn't automatic this season, keep trying to move the ball forward. Instead there was some bad conservative play calling and Akers missed yet again.


All that said, after taking a 21-17 lead the defense has to hold the fort, if they want to prove they are a great defense, a Super Bowl winning defense, they have to stop the Rams, and they did not, with help from our special teams being fooled by a fake for the second time.
What we need is QB that can throw the ball, not just passing for 200 yds per game, I'm pretty sure that Vernon is not the only one frustrated with the way the niners are playing....teams are making adjustments already ,cause they know niners run 60% and pass no more than 10 yds ....this wont takes farther from last year...just my thoughts...

His talent is being wasted by a QB who cant get him the ball.

Ya like that one season where Vernon broke the record for most TDs in a season

First, he tied Antonio Gates with 13 tds. Second, that record was then broken by Gronkowski with 17 (?).

Whether you like it or not were not gonna have huge passing numbers under Jim Harbaugh. Andrew Luck didn't have huge yardage numbers in Stanford, Alex won't have a lot of yards either. Harbaugh runs a power running offense and our team is having a lot of success with it

And passing yards don't mean anything. Look at Carson Palmer

I know that, what's your point?

That has nothing to do with the point I'm trying to say

Well, quite frankly, you said he broke the record. Just correcting your error. Point already made.
I was at the game.

I was watching to see if he gets open. NONE of the receivers where getting open.

I believe our receivers get open via scheme not by beating the guy in front of them.

It is 90% play calling and coaching, if they are doing things to take him out of the game, do things to get him back in the game. Be creative, get the best offensive weapon the ball.

This could NOT be emphasized more. Its quite surprising when you consider how much raw talent we have yet these guys can't beat simple press coverage and completely disappear against the more physical teams. It's sad. Then again, scheme could go a long ways to help them like it does on 1st down production. But when you watch how quickly other teams WR's fire off the LOS, the exotic routes, how they fight for the ball, gain huge separation, set a DB up, make highlight catches, etc. it shows how far away we are from a real WCO.
i think vernon is now officially on the endangered species list
I think he should be used more in the redzone, but can't complain crabtree has been steping up. I like to see a few post routes called a game for davis him and alex= money!
