Vernon Davis Guests On NFL Network's 'Good Morning Football'


After scoring his first touchdown as a Washington Redskin this past Sunday, tight end Vernon Davis joined NFL Network's *Good Morning Football *on Wednesday.

Davis, who started in place of injured tight end Jordan Reed, caught his first touchdown pass in 33 games on Sunday. But his celebration afterward was what everyone was talking about.

"You have to be in compliance, I understand that. I totally understand that," Davis told the *Good Morning Football *crew. "But shooting a jumper is one of those things that [getting flagged for] doesn't resonate with me. You can go out there and spike the ball, but you can't shoot it? C'mon, tell me something better than that, because it just doesn't sound right to me. It doesn't sound right at all."

Davis was docked $12,000 for his jump-shot celebration.

The celebration wasn't the only thing that caught the *Good Morning Football *crew's eye. The Redskins have won four straight, largely in part to the brilliance of offensive coordinator Sean McVay.

"Sean is a young guy, he's very young. He's brilliant," Davis said. "He's coming up with all kinds of different concepts when it comes to the passing game. It's just amazing; everyone respects him. We love him around here. His energy has been phenomenal."

The crew pointed out that McVay, 30, is younger than several veterans on the roster. Davis was jokingly asked if McVay would ask any of the veterans for advice, since he's so young.

"No, not at all. We respect him around here," Davis said. "He's very mature, and it's almost if he's in his forties because his approach to the game, the way everyone respects him around here, he's been nothing but phenomenal.

"You can't do anything but respect him because he's always talking football. He's just football 24/7, and the guys love that around here, the coaching staff loves him, and he's just doing all the right things."
