Chase Daniel discussion

I am hearing conflicting assessments of chase just through different fans. i personally think he looked good in the preseason game and believe that working with brees has made him somewhat of an interesting prospect. i think if something happened to brees (god forbid) he would be serviceable. do i think he is the future?....NO but i do believe he is a good back up. Your thoughts please...

From what I saw of him the two times I went to camp, he's a
good backup. He's proficient, and is showing increasingly
Brees-y footwork. I think he's the perfect understudy, and with
his dedication and enthusiasm, is everything Brees/The Saints
could ask for in an understudy. Sean Canfield, on the other
hand. Jesus. That poor child. Maybe he'll come around.

Brees didn't start out great in San Diego. That's why they drafted Rivers. It took Drew a few years to get to the level he is at now.
Give Daniels another year working with Drew and he will be able to step right on in there without skipping a beat.

I agree, what I've seen out of Chase so far is better than I have seen of half of the guys starting on some other teams.

If not Chase, then who?

I guess the important factor to consider is the offensive scheme and the personnel.

I think he will be somebody elses future. I stated this earlier in some other thread that I think he will be traded for a couple of picks to get the chance to start for som QB needy team ala Matt Schaub.

I think he looked good against the 49ers and hope he can continue that during the pre season to up his stock some more.

Daniel looks "ok' to me, but he leaves a lot to be desired. If Brees goes down the season is done, we have to accept that.
The info. I'm "privy" to was watching him the two times I saw him
(first day of camp, last day of (public/NOLA) camp, make mistake
after mistake and he looks extremely underweight and in need
of some soup and more weightlifting to me. "Big arm"? I didn't
see it. Maybe he didn't bring it with him the days I saw him.

He's a good backup, since Brees really doesn't need anybody challenging him in order to compete at a high level. Sometimes competition at the QB spot can be a good thing, but that obviously isn't the case in NO.

I'm not sure if he's the future - of the Saints or any other team for that matter - but Brees was very complimentary towards Daniels when he spoke to the media about him early in the camp. Naturally that could be just Brees trying to build him up, but there could be something to it.

Just based on what I've seen from him I don't think he has the skill-set to be/become dominant in any particular aspect of quarterbacking, but he can turn out to be a reliable #2 with emphasis on game-management. I guess only time will tell, but at the moment I'm content with him being the #2.

On the other hand, I'm slightly more optimistic about Canfield.

Now that's funny right there.
