Yeah, if you can play...you START.

A concept Dom Capers never "executed."

He had the team on a high school varsity and junior varsity format: Only seniors dress out.

Isn't it nice to have a coach with the balls to start who he thinks is the best player? Kubiak obviously values his assistant's opinions.....and then makes up his own mind on things pertaining to this football team. Owen Daniels has looked impressive catching the ball, but I haven't paid much attention to his blocking; that'll be my focal point for him Sunday. Also, I'd expect to see Putzier and Bruener get their fair share of time this weekend, even though Daniels has been dubbed the starter.

Well I had to have a talk with coach about it. I could hardly have my player riding the pine.

It's nice having an offense that actually incorporates the tight end! Its nice having good, quality tight ends also. And to think, some people here wanted to keep Marcellus Rivers.

Not bad for a guy who was for much of his college career (including his
senior year), "not" a starter.
Apparently this version of the WCO that Kubiak is running is the ideal sytem
for a TE like Daniels toexcel in. Something about his size (not real big but with
enough strength and technique to be a decent blocker), yet very good hands
and athleticism which enables him to run the routes and catch anything thrown his way.
Also, if anybody else noticed that Lundy fumble he recovered in the Denver
preseason game had to be impressed with his hustle. Looks like Kubiak was.

I reckon we'll see all 4 TE's in action this week. Bennie could operate as some form of H back - a bit like Chris Cooley of the Redskins.

I'm glad to see Danilels getting the nod. I think he's been a clutch player this preseason and I think he definately deserves a shot at the regular season. That being said, I'm extremely happy to see B.J. make it through the preseaosn unscathed and on the team (we owe him that much IMHO). I hope he gets up to his potential this year as well and finally gets to showcase the talent we thought he had coming out of college a few years back.

too many tight ends. Putzier caught one pass and rumbled. Why isn't he starting? Seems like he's the complete package. Joppru? Went from none to too many. too funny.

I'm all for Daniels starting at TE, but it didn't seem to me that he got that much time in during the pre-season. I thought the starting spot would go to Breuner or Putzier.

A lot of attention was paid to the running backs, and I watch the trenches more than anything else, so I have only a peripheral assessment of the TEs. Does anyone else have a better vantage, or am I the only one a little surprised to see Daniels crack the opening line-up?

Daniels saw a fair amount of action--he had 4 receptions in the 1st game alone.

Totals
Daniels 7 for 82
Joppru 4 for 32
Putzier 2 for 26
Bruener 1 for 18

I don't want to be a hater but I don't really see why Bruner is still on the roster. Kubaik sure likes him a lot for some reason though. I'm not sure how much he's costing us but after getting rid of Armstrong, this guy's about a 1-trick pony as there is. I know his catching skills are underrated, but with Daniels, Putzier, and BJ, I wonder why we should keep him. Should've let him go and keep Smith or Wand here instead.

I am not. As stated before he had quite a few receptions and it seems like those came mostly on 3rd down where he found a whole in the zones.

But the real reason I am seeing him as the starter is because Kubiak has mentioned time and again that he really sees Daniels as a down in and down out TE. I think we will still see a good chunk of Putzier with the two TE formations.

OD is a STUD!!! I like the fact that the guy came in as a 4th rounder hoping to make the team to a NFL Starter. I think he is getting the start because of his game against Denver. He blocked very well against some very good DE and we all know what he can do with the receiving side of the game.

Note that many weren't happy we didn't draft a DB at #4; we got a starting TE instead. If he lives up to expectations it'll end up being a very strong pick.

Add that to picking Ryans over Winston in the 2nd and it appears our coaches did more homework than the board. If our rookies continue to play well in live games we had an excellent draft. The coaches are to be commended.
