Sacramento Bee: Mike Singletary spoke a lot today about Vernon Davis. And he spoke a lot of about cancers in the locker room and
how they can damage a team. But he was careful to separate the
two. "Vernon is not a problem," Singletary said. "Vernon is not a
problem guy. Vernon forgets sometimes that the team is more
important. ... You have to be able to separate the two. He is not
a guy who's a distraction on the team." Which is not to suggest
that Singletary isn't still steamed over Davis' performance
yesterday. To recap: Davis was hit with a 15-yard unnecessary
roughness penalty when he flicked the underside of Brian Russell's
facemask. Singletary said he saw the whole thing and thought Davis
was "kidding when he did it." What seemed to upset Singletary more
was Davis' reaction. He tried to talk to Davis as he came off the
sideline and Davis was defensive. When he looked behind him a few
seconds later, Davis was being demonstrative on the bench.
Singletary said he had a conversation just last week with Davis in
which he urged the talented TE to be a leader on the team. His
actions on the sideline were entirely opposed to what the new
coach was looking for.
