The San Francisco 49ers have gone from one of the best teams in the NFL to arguably one of the worst an extremely short period of time. After head coach Jim Harbaugh’s departure, the 49ers have fallen apart with no telling when things may turn around for the storied franchise.

The majority of the prominent players on the squad that made the team so successful over the last few years have either retired, headed elsewhere in NFL free agency or were traded. The latest big-name to leave San Francisco is the veteran tight end, Vernon Davis.

The two-time Pro Bowler was traded to the Denver Broncos earlier this week and seems to be relieved to get a fresh start with a legitimate title contender. Davis asked about why his production has dropped off the last couple of seasons and blamed the ugly situation in San Francisco, via NFL Network’s James Palmer.

Davis said the simply look at the team he played on the and the constant turmoil that has attributed to everyone’s poor production in San Francisco, via Palmer.

Davis goes from a 2-6 squad to one of the few undefeated teams in the league. The veteran tight end will have a chance to resurrect his career in Denver as a red-zone target for superstar quarterback Peyton Manning.

The Broncos will have Davis on the field in Week 9 against Manning’s former team in the Indianapolis Colts. Denver is favored to remain undefeated this week with a -6 point spread. Manning and company should get the win while also covering the spread on the road.
