You are going to be reading this and say out loud,“Did you see him in the Purdue game last year?”  Yes I did. I also saw him be one of the few bright spots during the National Championship Game as well.  Daniels is a great talent and has the skill set to be a dominant wide receiver, but my man disappears far too often. Look at it this way; in his first three games last year, Daniels had 17 catches for 299 yards and four touchdowns.  Guess what his stat line was for the next seven games? 18 catches for 235 yards and a doughnut for touchdowns. He needs to play every game like he played the Purdue game. So if he could be consistent and show up for every game, he has the chance for a successful year.  As The Rock once said, “Success isn’t always about ‘Greatness’, it’s about consistency.”
