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.

Quarterback Trey Lance wasn't the only San Francisco 49ers player who suffered an injury during the team's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters this afternoon and provided injury updates, as he typically does on the day after a game. "[Tight end] Tyler Kroft had an MCL sprain," Shanahan said. "He'll be out a few weeks. [Rookie running back] Ty Davis-Price had a high-ankle sprain. He'll miss a few weeks also." Shanahan added that they just learned about the injury to Davis-Price. The team will expect their other rookie running back, Jordan Mason, to step up in Davis-Price's absence. "He needs to [step up] now," Shanahan said of Mason. "Last week was his first week getting a lot



Orlovsky says 49ers not a championship-caliber team with Jimmy Garoppolo, expresses concern for Trey Lance

The San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl odds saw a slight boost thanks to a Week 2 win and the switch at quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo replaces starter Trey Lance, who suffered a broken ankle in the Niners' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks and will undergo season-ending surgery today. Keeping Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal now seems like the 49ers' best offseason move. Once seen as an unnecessary luxury, holding onto the veteran quarterback keeps the team competitive this season. One ESPN analyst, Dan Orlovsky, doesn't agree with oddsmakers, though. He doesn't believe the 49ers are better equipped to make a championship run with Garoppolo at the



49ers QB Trey Lance could make full recovery within 10 to 12 weeks, says surgeon

Trey Lance will likely head to injured reserve soon. On Monday, the quarterback underwent what most assumed to be season-ending surgery to repair the damage suffered when he broke his ankle against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. On a conference call with reporters this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded pretty confident that Lance would be ready to go for Week 1 of the 2023 season. One expert isn't so sure the injury is season-ending, though. Foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung, a consultant to the Los Angeles Rams, believes Lance could be fully healed within 10 to 12 weeks. Assuming the lengthier estimated recovery time, that might make him available after Week 14. However, the shorter estimate could mean Lance is healthy after Week



49ers guard Aaron Banks doing 'a hell of a job,' says Kyle Shanahan

There was a lot of concern surrounding the interior of the San Francisco 49ers' offensive line heading into this season. How would the largely inexperienced starting guards perform? One player responded to the concern by playing some impressive football in the first two weeks. Pro Football Focus handed second-year guard Aaron Banks the team's highest overall grade (77.7) among offensive players. In addition, Banks is the 49ers' highest-graded offensive lineman this season, even beating out veteran Trent Williams by a slight margin. Banks' pass-blocking grade of 82.2 ranks second on the team. Who beat him out? The 49ers' other starting guard, Spencer
