SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Vernon Davis had a cross-country flight and an entire off day to think about the touchdown that should have been.
Colin Kaepernick overthrew the tight end on a would-be 34-yard score during the first quarter of Sunday's 41-34 victory at New England.
Davis acknowledges he is still getting used to Kaepernick, who is 4-1 since becoming the starter in place of Alex Smith.
From gauging the zip on the ball from the strong-armed Kaepernick to his tendencies and their timing together, Davis said he believes things will soon start clicking.
Another special January would be just what Davis has in mind. He caught the winning TD from Smith to beat New Orleans in last season's divisional playoffs, then had touchdown receptions of 73 and 28 yards in a 20-17 overtime loss to the New York Giants in the NFC title game.
