Vernon Davis will destroy Chicago

49ers tight end Vernon Davis is flapping his gums, claiming to be able to destroy the Bears like Godzilla can destroy Tokyo.  OK, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but judge for yourself.  This is what Vernon had to say about the Bears front seven in today’s conference call ahead of the Thursday night Bears-Niners matchup:

“I think we can destroy their front,” said Davis, who is one of the 49ers’ team captains. “The guys up front, I think we can destroy them. I don’t see anything spectacular about their front line. Their linebackers, I think we can handle them pretty well. I like (Adewale) Ogunleye. I like the way he’s playing up front. He’s about the only player I like on their defensive line. I think he’s doing a good job.”

So I guess Wale is the only one that can save us!  Easy to take a shot a team after giving up 41 and 45 in two of the last three games.  Pick on someone your own size!

Davis also took a swipe at Lance Briggs, but seemed to start back peddling as soon as the words left his yap:

“He can’t check me,” Davis said laughing. “… I think Lance is a good player. I totally respect Lance Briggs. He’s a good player. He’s been around before I came in this league and I respect his game. But we still have an opportunity. If he’s matched up against me one-on-one, I’m going to try my best to beat him.”


Lance throws his resume in Vernon Davis' face

Briggs, who almost became a 49er a couple of years ago had this to say of the Briggs (#55) and Davis (#85) matchup:

“It matches up well,” Briggs said. “It matches up four Pro Bowls well. I’ve been in the league going on seven years. So at some point the savvy and the know-how start to take over.”

Go on with your bad self.  Way to throw those Pro Bowls in his face Lance!  Now how about somebody throw a hat right between the 8 and 5 on the front of his jersey and drive him a couple of feet deep into the turf.

Davis is doing some big talking for a player that got sent to bed without his supper by head coach Mike Singletary in his Niners coaching debut last season.  Kids!  When will they ever learn?!?!
