Greg pappa the raiders announcer was on 95.7 the game this morning and said davis is megatron. I almost choked on my breakfast from laughing so hard. Im sorry you can make davis a non existance with double coverage. Teams covered megatron with three guys and he still beasted. The whole bay area is ridiculous right now. Its like their judgement is clouded right now from the high of the saints game

He's not megatron, but if you need double coverage to stop a TE than that's pretty effective right there.

No need to worry. Eli is Optimus Prime.

Davis and the Gronk can definitlty be considered the Megatron's of TE's. Because if you need 2 players to stop him then face it he is a machine.

With that said I don't agree you need 2 players to cover him just a really athletic player (especially if you are bumping him off his route).

never have 5 good minutes against the 29th ranked pass defense been so blown out of proportion

I like Optimus Eli. Always saves the game when all hope seems lost.

I do agree bigblue d you can effectively cover him one on one like we did in week 2 (yes im a cowboys fan and come in peace just here to let you know how the bay area is talkin about this game since i live here). Hes not a great route runner hence why he runs alot of easy routes so all you need is speed to cover him. I think with your guys front whos playin so lights out right now can cause havoc in this game.

Possibly.

Like many Tight Ends, Davis causes matchup problems for any opposing defense, only the degree of difficulty in covering him is much higher than normal tight ends. In fact I'd say it should be harder to cover him than any tight end in the league.

He's more physical than almost every tight end, and much faster with high 4.3 speed.

And while he isn't very tall for a TE, at 6'3" 250lbs he still outsizes the CBs that can keep pace with his quickness.

I don't see how you can NOT double team him.

That said, it's not like any other receiving options on the 9ers are worthy of extra attention. Crabtree is a solid number 1 WR, but nothing spectacular.

If the Giants pass rush works like it is supposed to work, there will be no need to cover Davis because he will have to stay back for extra protection before Alex gets abused more by JPP and OSI.

Davis is a great TE and has exceptional speed for the position. Let's not get carried away though, he is not Calvin Johnson. He's into curling though, which is awesome.

when you blitz constantly and leave some loser safety or LBer one-on-one with Davis, OF COURSE you're gonna get torched.</P>


when we drop 7 and still get pressure, let's see how Alex Smith Vernon Davis does then.</P>


I watched Aaron Rodgers, whose 20 times the QB Alex Smith is, look for passing lanes and windows and couldn't find many.</P>


Looking forward to seeing what Fewell dials up this week.</P>

No. Megatron is a freak athlete who can make catches in double/triple coverage.
