Default Owen Daniels!

It's Sunday morning (for 5 more minutes at least) and I feel really excited about Owen Daniels. I feel as though he's been overlooked a bit by the fans this offseason, but this guy is clearly one of the top tight ends if not the top one in the league. When he got injured in 09 he was on his way to becoming an All-Pro at his position and he was just playing lights out. Hopefully, he'll finally have the kind of season like he was on pace for back in 09. So yeah, I think OD will finally have that huge year he's due and I think he'll play a big factor if we are to make the playoffs this year.

I was at the Bills game when OD got injured, and I've never seen a more devestated player! His heart is HUGE and he gives 1000% all the time! He has that aura about him, like AJ, that screams confidence, and that's what is needed to win in the NFL.

I am very optimistic that OD will return to his pre-injury abilities. I am a big fan. However, if he can not, Dreesen is quite capable of being the starting TE. This is becoming the team with depth we have longged for.

Dressen improved a lot last season, but OD just has that ability that only star players do. He has that presence in the offense and him making those big plays over the middle is a great asset for the team.

I was extremely high on OD when we first got him. I think that I began to take him for granted.

He is a beast in every sense of the word. With he and dreesen, we could really give defenses fits in a two tight set.

With vickers and Casey at the fb spot it opens the possibility to pass or run out of that formation tremendously. If you leave vickers or Casey wide open they may pick up 20 yards instead of 8.

But yeah, all of that starts with od.

There was a game last season (San Diego maybe) where we were coming back from behind (as was the script last year) where an entire drive was to OD. I remember him being so incredibly open on every play of that drive, which I never saw Dreesen being able to do. I'm hopeful that he's able to bring that every game this year. I see him being in the top 5 in tight ends again now that he's conditioned.

His nickname from Wisconsin is The Weatherman, and I personally like that one much better.

Props for recognizing and admitting that. I think people forget how good he is and how valuable he is to this offense, as evidenced by many of the threads posted around the time of his contract negotiations.

To be fair, od has really just started showing that he's back from his injury. Couple that with the fact he's had the same kind if injury two times before and surely you can see why some folks started devaluing him.

Or in my case, had forgotten just how good he is when he's on.

Well, between the Rainmaker and the Weatherman, there should be plenty of dark skies ahead for opposing defenses.
