Vernon Davis Insults Steve Smith

Recommended Posts

http://www.nfl.com/n...-on-49ers-squad

"As I think back, I think I was more concerned with the guys before me ... guys like Steve Smith and Chad Johnson (who) wanted the ball," Davis said. "It was like, 'Throw me the ball.' So I looked up to those guys and figured that that was the way to go, that was the route. But it wasn't. It definitely wasn't the route."

Davis discussing being a "cancer" should have never, ever used #89 as an example. You just don't name drop other current players. Period.

Steve Smith has individually won more games for the Panthers because of his play, than Vernon Davis has even played in the NFL.

Compliment, or insult?

I called it a backhanded compliment because he said he looked up to Smitty, then says acting like him is no bueno.

What's with 49ers, like Alex Smith and Vernon Davis, keep bringing up Panther players and then trashing them. I can't wait to watch the Ravens whip their tail in the Super Bowl and for the Panthers to do the same next season!

I don't think we're eligible to play another NFC team in the Super Bowl. :P

Smitty may have been a little selfish early on, but he's been talking about the Panthers finding a new #1 and him taking a smaller role in the offense for a couple of years now.

I think he meant to say beat them when the Panthers are at SF next season.

I think Vernon Davis simply was saying the new ideal WR is someone who acts like Megatron. There are more and more of them each year.

Steve Smith is in fact, from a much more demanding and problematic era of WR.

There's some truth to that but hard to believe Megatron would ever demand to get the ball thrown to him when he had the most targets and receptions from any player this season.

LOL, so Davis is blaming his crappy attitude earlier in his career on wanting the ball more and somehow that's SS and CJ's fault?

    • I think it will take a 3 year deal to entice him. But if you can keep the signing bonus to lets say 10 million and guarantee year 1 salary of 4 million he gets his 14 million out of the gate and we guaranteed all of it. If we guarantee his second year salary of 7 million we are guaranteeing 21 million of his 30 million which is a ton but honestly he has shown to be consistent and productive. With KK and Poe with him they would be productive.  Year three is still a manageable 9 million although his cap would be 12.  Three years from now that will be a huge bargain.  
    • Yeah it sounds like we could afford him. The thing that makes me wary of a deal is that we could go one of two ways: 1. Sign a 1 year deal for $11-12 million with no long term risk if his age catches up to him or he starts wearing down from his injuries. This only makes sense if we think we are a DT away from super bowl contention this year because then we lose him next year and still don't have a succession plan after we invariably cut Poe and get rid of Butler. 2. We give him a 3 year, 30 million deal, but then if he starts showing his age or perhaps isn't as effective in our system, we're saddled with a decent sized contract for at least a couple years. Now suddenly we're paying 3 defensive tackles way more than they're worth while having holes to fill elsewhere in the roster. I was hoping he was looking at something in the 7-8 million range, in which case I'd say go for it. Once $11 million was leaked as the going price, I'm thinking we should bow out of this one and go for a more affordable option like Bailey if we still think we need to shore up the position. 
    • There has been a bill in the Congress of the USA for decades asking for reparations. YC or AM didn't invent the idea. What I find funny is that only Democrats are being asked to take positions on Reparations. How many Republicans sponsored that bill? ZERO. And no, none of them is asked a single question about it. The reparations issue is not a presidential issue (alone). Before the bill even make it to the desk of any president, it needs to go through the normal process in Congress, which will require 100 sponsors to make it to the floor. But strangely, none of the people running for office, who will be discussing this are even asked about it. And you want to tell me ... this is NOT about re-electing a Russian Agent? I really hope you actually understand how politics works in the USA.
