Last Chance for Vernon

I don't know about you, but I was excited by the Vernon Davis pick a few years ago.  We desperately needed a playmaker and, I think it was Mike Nolan (correct me if i'm wrong) said, "not only is he the best tight end in the draft but the best receiver too."  Well that has not turned out to be the case.

I'm not going to get into numbers, because we all no there not good.  Each year we keep hearing about how much he has progressed and each year he come's up short.  The part that gets me is his attitude.  I can specifically remember him catching a 4 yard pass in a PRESEASON game and taunting Shaw(u)n Merriman "lights out." 

So hear we are in 2009.  We have a offensive coach who will use the tight end.  We have a good running back and a good set of wideouts.  There is no excuse for him not to come up with his best season.  And if he doesn't what are our options moving forward.

There have been some suggestions, which started out as humorous, to convert him to another position.   So I leave it up to you, Niner Nation,  if VD sucks this year and never learns how to read defenses what do we do?
