SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - From the way Vernon Davis struts and smiles around the San Francisco 49ers locker room, it might be hard to tell the tight end has endured a ``stressful season.''
Not once has he complained or pouted about his limited touches. Davis even laughs about how he might have reacted in his younger days if the ball so rarely came his way.
A year ago this week, Davis had the defining moment of his career: a game-winning catch in a thrilling 36-32 playoff win over New Orleans. Now Davis enters San Francisco's NFC divisional playoff against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night somewhat of a mystery. He's perhaps the most proven and prolific threat for the 49ers, though his role has diminished in the last six weeks.
