Vernon Davis Talks About the Hardest Hit He Ever Took (Video)
The thing veteran NFL tight end Vernon Davis remembers most about the hardest hit he ever took is that, immediately afterward, he actually didn’t remember very much at all.
Davis spent some time talking to kids at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington over the weekend. During a Q&A session, one of the kids asked him about his hardest hit. Davis said it came courtesy of Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor in 2012, back when Davis was still with the 49ers.
“It was crazy,” Davis told the kids. “He hit me so hard, I just got up, I didn’t know where I was going, kinda lost my memory a little bit…I just didn’t know what happened. I was like, ‘Wow I just got hit by a very big man!’”
The kids thought Davis’ brain trauma was HILARIOUS. Take a look:

Vernon Davis may not have known where he was after the hit in question, but nobody who was watching that game has ever forgotten it. It came during a Week 16 NFC West showdown in Seattle.
With the Seahawks up 14-0 late in the first quarter, then-49ers QB Colin Kaepernick threw a 20-yard pass to Davis, who was about two yards in front of the Seattle end zone. However, right as Davis was about to make the catch, Kam Chancellor came out of nowhere and plowed into Davis like a Mack truck.
Take a look:
The pass was ruled incomplete, and the refs flagged Chancellor for unnecessary roughness. Technically there was nothing wrong with the hit. It just seemed wrong to hit a guy with that much force.
The Seahawks would go on to win that game 42-13. However, the 49ers would go on to win the NFC title and play in Super Bowl XLVII against the Ravens.
