The double standard is hilarious.
Vernon has set the standard... there is no comparison. When Crabs catches 13 touchdowns in a season, fans will be more than happy to give him a free pass.
What standard? If he is the best there is we are a long way from being great.
I think he is really good, and has all the tools to be at the absolute top, but he is not there yet, or anywhere close. Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates type of guys are a level above him if you ask me.
Jerry Rice was the absolute best there ever was and I can guarantee he would be catching passes. Davis is not a natural pass catcher and taking an extended vacation isn't going to help.
Same goes for Crabtree not being there, and I would say a lot more heat should be on him than Vernon, but I don't get why VD gets a free pass.
In the end it is a small thing as these might very well be a waste of time, but I would feel more confident knowing they were all working on their game together.
