Kuharsky blogs on Owen Daniels (http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/27315/monitoring-owen-daniels-comeback), Kubiak reveals quasi-plan for how many snaps Daniels will play vs. Colts in Texans home opener:

Owen Daniels could be a huge key for the Texans against the Colts at Reliant Stadium on Sunday.

But how much will he play? Hes coming off of an ACL repair, the third of his football career, and he didnt play in a preseason game.

Gary Kubiak wants to be cautious, but he could be persuaded to let Daniels play more than the team is planning.

Its easy for me to tell you all 20-25 plays, Kubiak told the Texans media. Im feeling good about that right now. Ill listen to him, is what Ill do. Hes going to play a quarter of the snaps I would say, or a third of the snaps. If he tells me he feels good then I may let him go. Ill see how hell respond to this weeks work ...

Let me see how he feels. I want to do whatever is comfortable for him. I dont want the pressure on OD. To me, the pressure is on us to bring him back the right way.

In the flow of a game, it could be hard to compute the right way if Daniels is effective and helping the cause.

Receiver Kevin Walter has big expectations for Daniels' first game since Nov. 1, 2009.

It feels like hes been practicing the whole camp, Walter said. Hes not missing a beat. Hes out there running great routes. Hes in great shape and hes going to help us out big time on Sunday.

Outside of how the knee handles the work, speed is the question to me. Daniels at his best runs very well. If he doesnt run as well, does he remain as dangerous?

Peyton Manning certainly expects him to be.

Im really happy to hear that he has rehabbed. Im sure our defense isn't all that happy out there playing because what a weapon he is, but it's credit to him for rehabbing and getting back, Manning said in a conference call with the Houston media.

There are a lot of similarities to Dallas Clark in the fact that hes very versatile. Hes a guy that you have matchup problems with. Do you put a linebacker or a defensive back on him? Hes got great speed. He's a heck of a guy too and glad to see him back healthy.

When Daniels is out of the game, whether its Joel Dreessen or James Casey in his place, the Texans need to keep that guy involved.

Tight End I feel is our most stacked position. Dressen proved in preseason and more importantly last year that he can be more than capable of being a productive pass catcher at that position. I think we are a better team with Owen as our starting TE but we need to run the ball to win the game on Sunday, so Gary, please take it slow with Owen.

Welcome to the board.

You've probably read a lot of my posts on here, so you should know that old GP has a lot of good insight into Texans football.

I am sure you probably agree with 98% of what I say, so it sure is good to know that you will be right there in my corner when these other rapscallions try to besmurch my honor on here. Don't even enteratin what they have to say. They just be hatin' on GP. They hate the player and should actually hate the game instead. Etc., etc.

Welcome to the board, and I can't wait to see you rubber-stamping my opinions and other factual talking points.

I kid, I kid...welcome to the board...as a poster now! :breakdance:

LMAO! Nice post!

Thanks.

I've wanted to do that for sooo long with new people who come to the board.

Just start up a whole gang system where the new people are under my employ. They back me on all I post. Or else. LOL.

I get a kick out of sitting here wondering what some of the lifers think when they read what I posted. I imagine a few of them are throwing up in their mouths at this very moment. LOL.

It's like the old pink Teddy Bear in Toy Story 3, who shows Woody and Buzz and the gang around the new daycare facility...only to lock them away in the 3-year-old room. Bwahahahah!!!!!!!!!!!
