Vernon Davis believes the San Francisco need to develop a sense of urgency and it needs to happen fast. During an appearance on Pro Football Talk, Davis said that the 49ers ‘must’ win a super bowl.
“We must win a Super Bowl title,” 49ers tight endVernon Davis tells NBCSN’s Pro Football Talkin an interview that will air on Tuesday. “You play this game, that’s what you play this game for. You play the game to go to the Super Bowl and that’s the only reason why we play to win and make it to the Super Bowl. So anything short of that would not be acceptable and I think my teammates know that as well.
“I mean, we’ve had multiple opportunities to make it and to win it. When we were playing back in New Orleans we played the Ravens we had a great opportunity in front of us but we just didn’t seize the moment but you know what the unique thing about it is we get another chance. We still have the same chemistry, the same guys that are back in the locker room but we have another chance to do it again.”
It’s not breaking news by any stretch, but it shows the volatility surrounding a 49ers organization that has friction among the front office, head coach and certain star players.
San Francisco came up short against the Giants in the NFC Championship Game in 2011, lost to the Ravens in the Super Bowl and barely lost to the Seahawks in 2013’s NFC Championship Game.
Windows close fast in the NFL, and Vernon Davis sees that.
