It's safe to say that Vernon Davis hasn't lived up to his hype in the NFL, but he has been marvelous today.

With only nine TDs in his career to this point, Davis hasn't been nearly the scoring machine people thought he was going to be, but he has two TDs today — his first two-TD game as a pro — and a career-high 96 yards.

The two TDs were great, and the big catch down the seam in between the safety and corner was terrific stuff.

But I am just as impressed with his blocking. He hammered Vikings DE Jared Allen on a big Glen Coffee run and has done enough to get in the way of other defenders to do his job.

Maybe Mike Singletary has gotten into this kid's head a bit.
