SANTA CLARA — Alex Smith did not throw a pass to Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis last Thursday Night. Here’s what Alex Smith said about that Thursday at his locker.
Q: You didn’t throw any passes to Vernon Davis last week. How important is it for you to get him involved in the offense early and often?
ALEX SMITH: He’s a key for us. He’s a great player, a guy who really gets us going at times and a playmaker for us. He’s a guy we’re always trying to get involved. It’s the truth. Always. He’s a focal point for us. You never know how the game’s going to unfold, though. My job is not to go out there and force things. Let it come to us and hopefully we’ll get him involved.
