I added a new poll that goes with my most recent post about Vernon Davis. He is seriously missing in action. Of all the talk of the hype and potential of Davis, this year has to be the most disappointing. He has only five catches and 87 yards. He should be getting that at least every game. With Mike Martz coming in Davis was suppose to finally have his breakout year. I don’t see that happening.
Who is to blame?
The figure can be pointed to Martz and Mike Nolan for not involving him more in the game plan however I think the blame should be on Davis. Even when he has been thrown to he has not looked impressive and it seems like he stops running his routes anytime a defender is within five yards. Frank Gore and Isaac Bruce are getting into the action by catching balls thrown their way, so Davis has no excuse and no one to blame but himself. I think Martz has lost some confidence in Davis and what he can accomplish in his offensive system. Remember Martz has never had a tight end really be the focal point of his offenses. He seems to be continuing that trend with Davis and the 49ers.
Step it up Davis or you will be thrown into the bust category with Alex Smith.
The new poll I added asks what should the 49ers do with Vernon Davis? Take the poll and tell me what you think in the comments.
