I do understand the 1-4 string thing with Brady he came out as a 7th round pick and earned his way up. Davis has not. I have nothing against you or anyone else or DAVIS I'm just fed up with people saying put Davis in he's god. He could very well be AMAZING but I will reserve judgment until it is proven on the field. He has currently done nothing, he is known to have problems in practice with the playbook and he has done well against scrubs, if he plays well this weekend I WILL BE VERY EXCITED because the niners are life, however until then I will wait for results that matter!@

Nobody thinks Nate Davis is God. Some fans just believe that the team got another steal in the draft(the others being Gore in the 3rd round, Willis at #11 first round, Crabtree #10), and want to see him groomed as the potential QB of the future.
He was considered a 1st/2nd round pick but fell to the 5th because of his learning disability. His 1st rd physical talent has been displayed during preseason games and his 5th rd learning disability is on display during practice.
Even during the San Diego preseason game last year, he played well. There's a video of every throw he made last year so there is no spinning it any other way.
The video shows him clearly eluding the pass rush and making accurate throws, checking down, throwing 20 yds outs on a rope, hitting the reciever in stride, staying composed in the pocket. All this without knowing the offense.
The kid has been successful with his limited reps and has earned the chance to push for the #2 spot.
