49ERS have never had a 1,000 yard TE

If Brent Jones couldn't do it, I don't care if it ever happens.

I just looked him up, he had 747 and 735 in his best two seasons, would have thought he would have been higher. On the other hand we had a lot of other good weapons on offense and only one football.
Well a few years back with QB X, he almost broke the record for TD's in a season. I'd rather see that side than the 1000yds.

That's what happens when QB X is only comfortable throwing to one guy. Kaep will distribute to Boldin and whoever steps up, so it's going to be tough for Vernon to break the TD record or even hit 1,000.

Kaep locked in on crabtree last year just like alex did with Vernon. Now that crabtree is down, I hope it will result in Kaep spreading the ball out more often than he did last year. It will be tough for Vernon to do either/or but if there is a guy on the team that can do it, it would be Vernon. If crabs was healthy it would be a different story. Even though boldin had a phenomenal postseason, he didn't do too much in the regular season. Boldin also had a couple of years of flaco throwing him the ball.
Gronk has done this right? If he can VD can too but given the kind of offense we run I don't see it happening probably more like 700-800 or right about there.

Exactly. Thanks for pointing that out. He was kaeps security blanket, as vernon was alex's. Now was either a bad thing. Hell no. I think every Qb should have a go to guy. Like Peyton with Wayne (when with the colts), or Brady when he had Welker. It really speaks volumes when you can rise from bad things happening. I def wanna see what kaep's made of this year. My only worry is that, he and Vernon will never be as close as Vernon was with Alex. and spread the ball to 10 receivers if you want too. Vernon is still one of the top TE's in the game, and id like to see his production go back up.
if they distribute the ball efficiently all around and win games, who cares?

Stop being homers , no way any 9er TE will break a G

With Vernon already having had a season that was just 35 yards short of a 1000, it's hard for me to understand how thinking it's possible to get just another 36 yards receiving makes one a homer.
we need Alex Smith back so Vernon can produce again

People underestimate just how good Vernon davis really is. He is probably the most athletic tight end in the league with jimmy grahm being a close second. IMO he is faster, stronger and can jump higher. Grahm is a couple inches taller and that gives him an advantage in jump ball situations. His hands have come a long way from where he was at his rookie year. I bet if he had played with a better qb these past couple of years, he would've already eclipsed that mark. I remember him being the talk of the combine coming out of college and he posted some ridiculous numbers for a tight end. He has and will continue to be our most valuable deep threat.

Not only that but he is also very crucial to our running game and even pass protection. He is like having an extra offensive lineman out there.
