Vernon Davis On The Bears: 'I Think We Can Destroy Them'

Bears-49ers on a Thursday night, competing against "30 Rock"? Sure, it may not feel like a real NFL game, but tight end Vernon Davis is trash-talking like it's another Sunday afternoon.

"I think we can destroy them," the 49ers tight end said Tuesday of the Bears defense. "I think we can destroy their front. I don't see anything spectacular about their front line."

Davis, so often a flash point on this team, did not back down from what he said a day earlier, but he did try to soften the impact of his unequivocal statements.

"I wasn't trying to stir anything up. I wasn't saying it to put anybody down," Davis said Wednesday. "I was being confident in myself and my teammates. I'm just being confident. I think we need a spark. As a captain, I'm here to motivate my team, get them fired up to play."

Any intimidation that offered, though, was quickly lost when teammate Manny Lawson added his own take.

"The only sense I'm getting is the vibe that we want to win. We're tired of losing."

I get the feeling we're thinking about possibly winning. So, uh, get ready Bears. Maybe.
