It was three seasons ago New Orleans Saints quarterback Chase Daniel sewed up his job as Drew Brees' understudy and three months ago he was taking all the snaps at practices where Brees was absent due to contract negotiations.

So why is the offense so different with Daniel under center?

There are two reasons for that, to hear Daniel and the coaching staff tell it. One is that Daniel can run the ball, the other is the coaches have no problem with him doing so.

"By no means is it meant that I'm dropping back and going, 'hey, I'm just going to run,' Daniel said after a practice this week that again featured him scrambling during some team drills. "No, I'm going through 1, 2, 3 and if I see a hole I'm going. And that's something that (offensive coordinator) Pete (Carmichael) and (quarterbacks coach) Joe (Lombardi) like, they say, 'hey, this is a skill that you have, a skill that a lot of quarterbacks don't have. If you can go and get us 5, 6 yards and a positive play or 20 yards on a scramble, go do it. Don't be afraid to do it; don't listen to what anyone else says.'"

Drew and Chase might be the same height. Their not the same Quarterback.

I was watching one of his runs in the Pat's game. It looked like Drew taught him to slide. I hold my breath every time I see those guys go in head first. Makes me nervous.

I don't really like running Quarterbacks.

And with the way he's progressing, I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they give him the green light to pass as well.

In the 2013 draft, absolutely no later than 2014.

Re: New Orleans Saints backup QB Chase Daniel has the green light - to run

I am kinda mixed on Chase. I love his ability, and hate his decision making. I know he is ripping at like a 71 completion percentage during this pre-season, but his decision making skills have me worried. Yes, I do get no one goes through progressions and reading defenses like Brees does, so I guess if in doubt, let Chase run it out. Way better than an untimely INT, for sure.

I agree that next year or the year after, the Saints will pick a QB very high in the draft, perhaps a first rounder, to groom. In a perfect world that QB gets to sit for a few years, and then take over after being trained by Brees.
