This might have already been brought up before. Is it just me, or has Vernon Davis gotten alot slower? Remember, he ran a 4.38 40. With that kind of speed, even cornerbacks would have a hard time matching his speed, let alone his 6'4 size and 250 lb frame. IMO, he should have more success than Randy Moss ever did because he's matched up against slow linebackers or small safeties. When I see him not getting any separation, or getting tackled by linebackers, I'm just dumbfounded. Dude has the almost the speed of Ted Ginn! What is going on!?!?!?
I'm not knocking the guy. He's actually my 2nd favorite player on offense (after Gore of course). I just see so much potential.
LOL. There are always some of you that always miss the point. Where in that last game did he show dominating speed? That fade route against s**ty safety Wending? That TD where he juked the defense?
If you READ, I was talking about his SPEED.
Let's think about it logically. He is supposedly almost as fast as Ginn. He is as tall and has a much bigger frame than Randy Moss. He's a TE matched up against eitherslower linebackers and slower safeties, not cornerbacks. He has the tools and athleticism to be the best TE to ever play the game, without contest. But, yet he hasn't dominated the game like Randy Moss has. Yes, he's a great TE, but READ: I said DOMINATING as in there is no contest, as in throw it when he's covered by a line backer and safety, and he'll still come up with the ball because of his spead and height. As in, even cornerbacks can't catch up to him to make the tackle.
