The past two seasons, Michael Crabtree has replaced VernonDavis as the 49ers' go-to receiver. And that seems OK with Davis.
"I think that Michael Crabtree has done a terrific job as far as stepping up and becoming a leader," Davis said. "He's been through a lot as well. It takes time for a guy to come in and be successful. You have to go through some things first before you can reach your highest peak. So I think that he's been patient as far as that."
That patience is paying off for the 49ers.
