The big talking point surrounding this year’s Niners is whether they can rise back up from the valley of 0-0, get back to the playoffs, and eventually wind up back in the big game for the second year in a row.

Former 49ers tight end Vernon Davis knows exactly what that’s like after losing the Super Bowl to the Ravens in 2012 and coming oh-so-close the following year. While practicing to compete in the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars (premiering Monday, Sept. 14 on ABC at 8 p.m.), Davis sat down with our own Kyle Posey on Friday.

Here’s some of what they covered:

  • His favorite memory from his career
  • George Kittle picking up the mantle of great #85s
  • What it’s like the year after losing a Super Bowl
  • Cramming to learn Peyton Manning’s playbook after being traded midseason in 2015
  • How fast he could run a 40 yard dash right now
  • His prediction for the 2020 49ers
  • An amazing story involving Sean McVay and Trent Williams
