    Stats thus far:
    Receptions: 39, 2nd in the NFL among TE's (H. Miller first with 40)
    Yards: 497, 1st in the NFL among TE's (D. Clark second with 485)
    TD's: 5, T-2nd in the NFL with Shiancoe among TE's (V. Davis has 6 after today)

    Not to mention if you've been watching the games you know how incredibly clutch his play has been this season. He's a complete TE and in this offense he's a top 5 player at his position, not to mention he seems like a great locker room guy and team player.

    Can we re-sign him soon, please?

    Houston made a mistake by not resigning him this past offseason...

    Now he's going to demand rediculous money.

    Houston will probably franchise him and then we'll lose him after another year. I just don't see them spending that kinda coin on that position when we have alot of players that we also have to sign.

    Exactly, especially if he keeps this pace up.

    Yeah, cuz it was just sooooo foolhardy of the Texans to offer him top 3 TE money.

    X 2 Owen, Demeco and MAYBE Robinson will get paid. We will win, they will get paid. Hollar.

    Bob Mcnair, and I agree with him on this, has told his players:
    "Win, THEN you'll get payed."

    Mr. Mcnair does NOT appear to be a "Drayton Mcclain" type owner. He
    genuinely will pay to win, not just to fill the seats. The players get the
    message. If they win, they will get payed. No more long-term deals
    for mediocrity.

    He would've been a hell of alot easier to negotiate with last offseason (instead of pretty much cutting off all talks), than it will be this offseason.....when we won't be able to talk him off top 3 TE money. He's going to cost more money now, that can't even be argued.

    No need to argue about it now at all, I agree. He is worth it and we have to pay him, no way we let him walk if he keeps up this kind of production. Would have been nice to have gotten something worked out before this season started but the cats outta the bag now, he is one of the best TEs in the league.

    I now understand McNair's agenda, but Daniels is commited! He is spending extra time learning special teams? His performance this year and last year. Doesn't that count to give him his deal?

    I am willing to admit that I was in the Owen Daniels is not a Top 5 TE club.

    I'm with ya. I was in the wait and see - 1. how Daniels plays, 2. if Casey can make an immediate impact and show signs of being a great pass catching TE.

    I waited, I saw, now it's time to re-sign Daniels... ;)

    I understand wanting to sign him. Great. At least one report was he was offered #2 in the league TE money when everyone around thought the #1 in the league money was stupid. Seriously, other than the result of having him signed what would you have had them do? I mean other than whatever OD wanted is there an acceptable answer?

    I hope to God we sign this guy. He's been my favorite player since 2006. And he's making my signature look goooooooood.

    When I first read about McNair saying that I was really impressed. On so many levels I love that this is his approach. Not only does it motivate the players to perform at a high level but it motivates them to raise the play of those around them as well.

    I think it's a brilliant move that will cost this team dearly from a dollars and sense stand point but that will pay off magnificently from a success stand point.

    I don't mind opening the vault for Owen Daniels. He's turned into a top 5 (even top 3) TE. Not bad for 4th round Casserly pick. :)

    Owen Daniels is worth it. Dunta's not.
