"Things are going to be said," 49ers guard Eric Heitmann said Wednesday. "You see bulletin-board material all the time. It's happened to me in the NFL and in college. You can't get emotional about it."
"The guys up front, I think we can destroy them," Davis said. "I don't see anything spectacular about their front line."
Davis' outburst might be a good thing for Singletary, who will face his former team for the first time as a head coach. The comments lessened the attention on Singletary's relationship with the Bears.
"I'm not glad he said it, but I'm not going to think a lot about it," Singletary said. "He said it, it's out there and they'll have their reaction. We'll just go play the game."
Heitmann said he doesn't feel any added pressure to back up Davis' words.
"As a player, you have to stay focused," Heitmann said. "You can't worry about what is being said. If you get too emotional, you can mess up. You have to have a level head to be successful."
