What to expect from Daniels at his press conference
DANIELS has had plenty of time to think about his next step in his career, but it wasn’t easy when he was a junior in high school.
He was the youngest player on a high school football team, and it was his first year as a starter.
He’d come into the league as the fourth-string quarterback, and that was all that he wanted to be.
But the way he handled himself after that first season as a rookie in 2013-14 was what set him apart from his peers.
“It was a different way of playing,” DANIEL said.
“I was so mature, I knew what I wanted to do.
I was so calm and composed.
I could talk to anybody.
I wasn’t nervous.
I wanted it all, and I was ready to go.
I thought that was my opportunity. “
When I started, I was playing with a lot of confidence.
I thought that was my opportunity.
It gives me confidence. “
Now, it’s not like that, and for me, that’s a good thing.
It gives me confidence.
I’ve been through this a lot. “
In my mind, I think this is the right move.
I’ve been through this a lot.
I can be myself.
I’m a grown-up.
I understand what I have to do to win a game, but at the same time, I’ve got to be better.”
After two seasons with the Chargers, DANIels returned to the gridiron and earned All-Pro status with the Chiefs in 2016.
This year, he has been even more productive, making a career-high 52 starts and starting a whopping 61 games.
The only problem was that it took DANIERS time to adjust to the playbook.
“That’s something I’ve learned the hard way,” he said.
“I had to adapt my whole body and my approach.
I think I’ve done a really good job of that. “
Just learning the offense, the terminology, the playbook and just getting comfortable with that, getting comfortable.
You have to find a way to fit the team. “
Every team that I’ve played, there are different things that they do.
You have to find a way to fit the team.
That’s the thing, to find the best fit for your team.
I just think that’s been a big part of it.”
You have to know what you want to do on and off the field, and then you just have a plan for what that is.
“With that mindset, he knows he has a real shot at being the next Hall of Famer.
The Chiefs don’t have any other quarterback on the roster, but DANIENS could be the best one.
He’s also not the only one.
In his career as a pro, there’s only been one other time he’s had the chance to throw for over 2,000 yards.
That was in 2007 when the Cowboys had Tony Romo.
That season, he was an absolute monster.
He threw for 4,838 yards, 33 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions.
DANIETS career was defined by his ability to be both a weapon and a finisher.
Now, he is one of the game’s most efficient passers.
But DANIES isn’t satisfied with the current roster.
He is ready to get a little younger.”
It doesn’t really matter. “
(With) this team, it doesn’t matter what position you’re playing.
It doesn’t really matter.
If you can do it on the field for the team, you can’t be a backup.
We have a really young roster. “
We have the guys to be the starter, and we have a lot to prove.
We have a really young roster.
There are some guys who aren’t even in the league right now.
The coaches have got to trust me and me trust them. “
But I feel like we can be a really special team.
The coaches have got to trust me and me trust them.
I believe in myself and I believe we can do something special.”
It’s not easy to come here and say, ‘Hey, I’m the starter,’ but I’m ready to take it.
I feel I can make the leap from this to being the starting quarterback.
