Anthony Davis says he misses football and bashes 49ers

Dec 27, 2016 at 7:45 AM--


Are you tired of hearing about former San Francisco 49ers tackle Anthony Davis yet? If your answer was no, here is a little tidbit from yesterday. Apparently, according to a Tweet he sent out yesterday, Davis misses playing football, but not enough to play for the 49ers because he effectively bashes management and ownership.

The Tweet by Davis was later deleted, but luckily, Jon Becker of the Oakland Tribune and Contra Costa Times copied the text and shared it.

"I miss football," Davis said via Twitter. "I don't want to play for Jed, Trent or Pat though. They're all full of shit."


Jed would be Jed York, the team CEO. Trent is Trent Baalke, the team's general manager. Pat is Pat Flaherty, the team's offensive line coach.

These days, there probably aren't a lot of fans that would argue with Davis on the Jed and Trent part. The Niner Faithful are growing increasingly frustrated with the two and the direction that they have steered the organization since firing successful head coach Jim Harbaugh.

After retiring for health reasons last year, which included concussions, and following a year of what can be described as "social media attacks" against the 49ers and Baalke, Davis filed for reinstatement into the NFL. He was approved to return just as the 49ers opened training camp.

Despite his hard work and continued praises from the 49ers, Davis was never able to wrestle away the starting job from the bigger Trent Brown. Following the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, Davis suffered another concussion. This time, it was during a practice as the team was preparing to play their Week 2 opponent, the Carolina Panthers. On September 26, Davis retired again from the NFL.

Of course, a return would mean that Davis would have to play for the 49ers.

49ers Notebook: Former teammate bashes Garoppolo; Cowherd believes Garoppolo will have a market

Here are two San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you. Both involve veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He will start against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend, returning from the calf injury sustained on October 3. While Garoppolo is the 49ers' starter this season, the team drafted his successor, Trey Lance, in April. San Francisco will have a decision to make on Garoppolo after this season. Some wonder if the team might even look at opportunities before the November 2 trade deadline. Former Patriots teammate bashes Jimmy Garoppolo Don't count former New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett among Garoppolo's biggest fans. Bennett bashed his former teammate during an appearance on the



John Lynch: 49ers learning from draft hits and misses; Aaron Banks, Ambry Thomas will contribute

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit



Collinsworth: 49ers a 'power football team' at their best, can recover from 2-3 start

Cris Collinsworth hasn't given up on the San Francisco 49ers. The team may be entering Week 7 with a 2-3 record and riding a three-game losing streak, but the NBC announcer knows things can turn around quickly for Kyle Shanahan's squad. Collinsworth will be calling the game on Sunday night between the 49ers and Indianapolis Colts. He was in Santa Clara this week to watch practice. Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area pulled him aside to talk about the Bay Area team, which has struggled to live up to its potential. "They're close," Collinsworth responded when asked how he views the 49ers. "I think that's the only way you can say it, is there's some teams that you look at them, and you go, 'OK, they're definitely not making the playoffs.' I mean, we're already to



Why Rich Eisen says the 49ers would be 'crazy' to put Kyle Shanahan on the hot seat

If you spend a lot of time on social media, you probably noticed a very vocal segment of The Faithful calling for the San Francisco 49ers to fire head coach Kyle Shanahan. If not that, they believe Shanahan should at least be on the hot seat, and the outcome of this season to determine his fate. Shanahan was given a pass after last season's six-win campaign. His team was coming off a Super Bowl appearance, after all, and had just endured one of the most injury-plagued seasons in recent NFL history. Shanahan is also 31-38 as a head coach, including 2019's 13-3 season. If you throw that out the window, the coach has never guided a team to more than six wins. He could do so this season. However, after winning their first two games, the 49ers have stumbled through
