Vernon Davis

This whole thing was probably just a ploy to drum up attention for his stupid FANTEX sponsorship.

He causes a stir with a holdout, he gets interviewed about it by every media outlet, then plugs his new investment. The company probably paid him the money he lost from the holdout.

once vernon has a bad game a segment of the base will say
well he should not have held out of camp
well he should not have said the word brand
well he should not have taken a picture with jimmy grahm on june 25th
well he should not have tweeted on june 28th
one thing always leads to everything right?

Well 4 million is > than 200k. So it may have been worth it from that standpoint. But I don't know about Fantex- in I my opinion, 99% of the publicity generated for VD and Fantex were negative.

yes lets take vernon outside and beat the s**t out of him for having interests outside of football like most other players have. thank you for bringing that up, that is another thing i will add to the list of things to hear and read when he has a bad game
IMO, VD will have a tremendous year since we improved our WR corps.

He should, I'm hoping, see less double coverage as the season progresses.

if crabs and boldin are full go,, its pretty hard to double vernon. then if those guys are at a high level, the opposition can not afford to stack the line to defend our run thus leaving them vulnerable to those 3 downfield. whatever stevie, miss lloyd, baldwin, the rookie, whomever bring to the table will just be gravy

I'm feeling the same thing. It's like excellent combination punching in boxing. When it's working it is almost unstoppable.

agree. when all those parts are working, combined with a improved ck who can hurt you with his legs as well, I am not sure how even roman could f**k it up.
