Part IV passing game analysis: second-half Raiders

Reduction of production for Vernon Davis is an issue.More of the same for the 49ers in the second half of the Raiders game – poor protection, failure to see open receivers, inaccurate passes, one-read-and-go mentality.

Vernon Davis with some words of wisdom
