49ers tight end Vernon Davis had a season-high six receptions on Monday night, with Colin Kaepernick throwing the passes. But that doesn’t mean Davis is ready to declare that Kaepernick should be the starter.
The day after a six-catch, 83-yard performance that included a touchdown, Davis said that Alex Smith remains the best option.
“Kaepernick played last night and happened to do a good job but Alex is still the man, no question,” Davis told KNBR on Tuesday, via SportsRadioInterviews.com.
The fact that coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to utter those underlined words makes them even more glaring. And regardless of what Harbaugh does or doesn’t say, the stuff his players say (or don’t say) could highlight the very controversy that Harbaugh is trying so hard to not acknowledge.
