Throughout NFL history, there have been some great dynasties, like the Steelers of the '70s, the 49ers of the '80s and the Cowboys of the '90s. So where will the next dynasty come from? 

The answer to that question is Seattle if the person you're asking is San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis. Despite the fact that Davis' 49ers have played in the last two NFC title games, Davis sees an emerging dynasty in the Seahawks

"They're building a dynasty over there," Davis told NFL.com, via the San Jose Mercury News. "They've got some good players over there. I mean, these guys are starving. So we have to really keep that in mind because these guys are coming to take us out."

Davis isn't kidding about the Seahawks wanting to take out the 49ers. Just watch the video above: It's from San Francisco's 42-17 December loss to Seattle and features Davis getting laid out by Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor.

"I respect them, just like I respect my team, but we want to win, too. We're in it to win it," Davis said. "So we have to really make it upon our responsibility and put it all out there and play each game like it's our last game."

Davis and the 49ers will get an early shot at ending the Seahawks' emerging dynasty before it starts this year. San Francisco travels to Seattle in Week 2 for an NFC West showdown on Sunday Night Football
