Here is my assesment of Daunte, he is a good QB, but the coaches have made him way too conservative of a QB. Last year he had too many turnovers, but now he is playing tenative, will never try to throw a pass into coverage, and is afraid to run over guys now. He is 265 pounds and he runs out of bound after 4 yards!? They have turned him into a headcase, and he used to be able to throw good running, but now he can't throw unless his feet are perfectly planted and he has plenty of space to get the ball in. He needs to re-learn to take some risks. He needs to be cut loose, set free, allowed to play like he used to, have fun, run over Defensive backs. 2 years ago he was a very good QB. He would run over guys on runs, not always lower his should, but be able to pick up the first down without going out of bounds, he used to not be scared to throw the ball into coverage. Now if nobody is open on third and 7 he will just throw the ball away instead of risking an interception.
