Chase Daniel was an undrafted free agent out of Missouri during the 2009 NFL Season.
He has a super quick release like Romo's, and he has the same speed coming out of the pocket. He played well in the preseason with Redskins, but was released. He was then signed by the Saints practice squad for most of their season, and then won a ring being the third QB for the Super Bowl.
Chase is now the favorite at backup QB for the 2010 season according to many New Orleans newspapers who wonder if Pat Ramsey will even make it through training camp.
He, like Romo, also has a good No.1 option to work with in Marques Colston. You may be asking yourself,"Surely Drew Brees isn't going to have a bad season is he?!"
Remember who (Drew Brees) is on the cover of Madden 11, and we all know what that means.
Madden 1999 was the first year they put players on the cover. Garrison Hearst has an outstanding season, but breaks his ankle in a playoff game that costs him two years of his NFL career.
Madden 2000; Barry Sanders is pictured over John Madden's right shoulder, but he decided to retire.
Madden 2001; Eddie George fails to rush for 1000 yards and the Titans miss the playoffs.
Madden 2002; Daunte Culpepper misses four games due to injury and leads Minnesota to their worst record at 5-11 since 1984.
Madden 2003; Marshall Faulk has the worst injury-free year of his career in which he rushes for 430 yards less than the year before.
Madden 2004; Mike Vick breaks his leg in a preseason game against the Ravens and misses 11 games.
Madden 2005; Ray Lewis has the worst injury-free season of his career in which he didn't record an INT for the first time in his career.
Madden 2006; Donovan McNabb suffers a sports hernia in Week Nine and is lost for the season.
Madden 2007; Shaun Alexander breaks his foot and misses six games.
Madden 2008; Vince Young throws eight more INTs than TDs and loses in the playoffs.
Madden 2009; Brett Favre betrays the Packers and the Jets as his arm injury and attitude cost both teams their seasons.
Madden 2010; Troy Polamalu injures his knee in the first game of the season and never returns.
Madden 2011; Drew Brees is featured on the cover (effects not yet known).
To move away from the whole conspiracy idea, I'd like to point out that Daniel is a lot like Brees. He knows the system very well, he is the same height, he won his state's championship, he was an All-American, and he has a quick release all like Brees does.
Daniel has received praise for a great offseason from coach Sean Payton and QB Drew Brees. If Brees gets injured at any point in the season, look for Chase to come in and perform well.
