San Francisco 49ers: Vernon Davis says Team “Must” Win a Super Bowl
- Updated: April 23, 2014
The window to win a Super Bowl in the National Football League can close fast, and San Francisco 49ers’ tight end Vernon Davis realizes that.
In an interview with Pro Football Talk that will air on Tuesday, Davis said the 49ers “must” win a Super Bowl.
“We must win a Super Bowl title. 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.” – Vernon Davis
The 49ers have reached the NFC Championship the last three seasons and the Super Bowl in 2013. The team has been close to reaching its ultimate goal, but hasn’t been able to capitalize.
Comments like this show a possible schism between the front office and the star players on the team. But then again, who doesn’t want to win.
