"Of course we want Kirk here," tight end Vernon Davis said. "We think he's one of the best guys in the locker room. He's a great leader and everything you want in a quarterback. ... Unfortunately, we don't have any say so."
"The team that hangs in there and keeps fighting and punching away for that win, that's the team that's resilient," tight end Vernon Davis said. "It's the people, the guys who make up that team. We have a lot of young energy around here, guys who have that winning spirit and attitude. Those are the kind of guys you want on your team."
