Steve Young spoke on KNBR Wednesday afternoon. Here’s what he said about the 49ers’ use of Vernon Davis.
Q: Should the 49ers do a better job getting Vernon Davis open and part of the game plan?
YOUNG: I haven’t seen the explosiveness, and he’s an explosive player, so if part of this switch to Colin is to be more explosive then let’s get [Davis] out on the short motion. If [Davis] is your No.1 explosive player in the pass game, and he certainly qualifies, then he can’t line up in the tight formations and let it rip.
Whenever we wanted to get Brent Jones going, we’d just bring him out short motion, move him around to the slot, Y-motion, just make sure that he didn’t get caught up in the wash every time. Get him out on the perimeter and make it happen.
