49ers | Benefit when opponents focus on Vernon Davis

According to San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, three opponents this year have taken "drastic measures" to make sure TE Vernon Davis had quiet games. The three teams intent on minimizing Davis were the New York Jets, New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks. In those three games, Davis was targeted seven times and he caught five passes for 65 yards. TE Delanie Walker has been a beneficiary of coverages skewed to stop Davis; his biggest games have come against the Jets and Seahawks. RB Frank Gore ran for 131 yards and averaged 8.2 yards a carry when the Seahawks focused on stopping Davis. The Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco's Week 8 opponent, will keep an eye on Davis; however, they likely will not do anything "drastic" to keep Davis out of the game.
