Vernon Davis racks up 171 receiving yards, two TDs in first half

It took 49ers tight end Vernon Davis less than two quarters to set a new career-high for receiving yards in a regular-season game.

Davis hauled in seven receptions for 171 yards and two touchdowns in the first half against Arizona on Sunday as the 49ers rolled to a 22-14 lead.

The touchdowns highlighted the skill set that makes Davis such a tough matchup for defenses. On the first score — a 61-yarder in the second quarter — Davis lined up near the backfield, a la a blocking back or H-back. Colin Kaepernick faked the handoff to a tailback, then hit Davis downfield for a touchdown.

Later in the quarter, Davis split out to the right like a wide receiver, and Kaepernick hit him for a 35-yard score.

Davis needs 10 yards to exceed the 180 he reached against New Orleans in the 2011 divisional-playoff round.

    Get ready for some whiner excuses. We’ll hear how great the cards are just like they’ll say how horrible every team is that Seattle plays. Lol

    Wow – classless fans follow a classless coach.

    Doing the wave and cheering while they’re strapping a Cardinal to a board due to neck injury concerns.

    Just wow.

    Hey realitycheckbaby give them a little time to learn how to not act like complete trash. Most of them just started getting into football this season. Ah who are we kidding, bay area fans will always be complete trash.

    Wow a hawk fan calling someone a fairweather fan I have lived in the Puget sound close to 20 yrs and you guys are the worst bandwagon fans I’ve ever seen look in the crowd at century link everyone is wearing brand new Seahawks gear where was the 12 man five years ago. They didn’t exist 95 percent of Seahawks fans born in 2007 I am an eye witness

    My guess is that 95 percent of the Seahawks fans think the name Zorn is some new grunge band playing this Saturday at the Lonely Planet Bar.

    I also came from the bay area, living in Spokane 3 years ago, nobody cared about the Seahawks.

    I’m amazed at how many Seahawk fans there are now.. BANDWAGON JUMPERS for sure..
