Eric Reid and Vernon Davis active

Vernon Davis and Eric Reid are active for today's game against the Saints. This was just announced in the press box. Both suffered concussions last Sunday. Reid got knocked out, as in he lost consciousness. If Reid were a boxer in California, he would have to wait 90 days before [...]

Vernon Davis says a bad word

On Thursday, Vernon Davis said a bad word. I happen to love that he said it, and as curse words go, it has tremendous power and popularity. I now think more of Davis than I ever did before. Davis also spoke about going into the playoffs for the first time [...]

Hello Cohn Zohn, this is Grant. I just read the great Matt Maiocco’s piece on the Michael Crabtree – Vernon Davis squabble. Here’s my impression: Mike Singletary has created a double standard on the team. When he started as a head coach, he made his splash kicking Davis off the [...]
