D WizzleSenior Analyst IOctober 27, 2008
  • Has not talked to Vernon Davis, but he will. He says he is not in a rush to do it.
  • "One of the biggest things we talk about on this team is respect."
  • Said that Davis crossed the line, and if he had to do it over again, he would do the same thing.
  • "Vernon is not a problem guy." 
  • Said that Davis is not a distraction on the team.
  • "No one is above the team, including myself."
  • Does not have a doghouse and won't play games with his players.
  • He and Mike Martz looked at the film this morning and will have a conversation about who will start at quarterback against Arizona.
  • "We have to make the best decision to make the right fit."
  • The decision on the starting quarterback will be unanimous.
  • "I want to be a physical football team."
  • Loves Martz's offense.
  • Tony Wragge and David Baas played great. 
  • "We are a young and aspiring team. We don't need distractions and the people that don't want to be a part of this. We need everybody on deck. My eyes are always looking out for those people that want to be a part of something special."
  • Doesn't want his players to argue with the referees. "We all would like to choke them at times." Says it is better to back away and move on.
