Video: 'We should be Super Bowl favorites'

By Mike Sando


Vernon Davis recently said his San Francisco 49ers should be Super Bowl favorites.

The Pro Bowl tight end was speaking days after Vegas oddsmakers made the 49ers 4-1 favorites in response to heavy betting on the defending NFC West champs.

I thought that context would be helpful when viewing the video above.

"I strongly believe we should be the Super Bowl favorites," Davis told Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury news, "but I can't talk about it because it's all about work. It starts here at practice. I don't want to talk about it and brag and say this and that, because it's not about that. It's about working first. And in the end, you will see where you'll be."

I'm having a hard time getting worked up over those comments. You?
