Behind the Scenes with Daniels

1 decade 2 years 10 months ago Monday, September 03 2007 Sep 3, 2007 Monday, September 03, 2007 10:43:51 PM CDT September 03, 2007 in Tiger Talk

You've seen him on the field, but the time Chase Daniel uses to prepare off the field comes in the cover of darkness. A video room in the Missouri training complex. Recently, he let our cameras in for a look behind the scenes.

Football talk. A second language to most. But it rolls off the tongue of the Tiger quarterback.

"I don't think anyone can even go in and watch an hour of film the whole week and be prepared on what we can do. You'd have to be upstream because there are so many complex defenses now a days," said Daniel.

Complex, but beatable. Mizzou scored on eight of its first possessions last season.

"We like to script about 20-30 plays that we have going into a game that we like," said Daniel.

In last season's game against Kansas, Mizzou used 26 first quarter plays and scored on all three possessions.

"...Score fast...that's what we like to do. We like to be able to do it fast," said Daniel.

Chase is also quick to realize he's not perfect. While watching a pass to ???????, he commented,

"This isn't a good throw at all. It's hitting seven yards in the end zone. It needs to hit at the five."

The play of the game against KU was a pass to Jared Perry.

"My body turn got him just enough for me to split it through the window and he got it. That's a coaching point that I need to have in mind and I need to do that...75 yards later," said Daniel.

Daniel is a big numbers guy, and not just about passing yardage. He plays the odds when scouting a defense.

"Each day we go over different stuff. Their blitz tendencies, 3rd down tendencies, 3rd and long, 4th and short. Every sort of thing. We have a huge breakdown on percentages and percentage blitzes," said Daniel.

Before games there is one last tape Daniel watches, with only good plays allowed.

"You're seeing yourself make the big plays so you get it in your head. It's imagery. It's mental imagery and you get it and you see it done and you see it the right way and then your going to go out Saturday and do it," said Daniel.

It's the rest of the week where Daniel preps for weekend glory.

"If you're prepared there's not much that can go wrong. If you're prepared you're not nervous. Nervousness comes from unpreparedness. If that's a word."

A word that is in Daniel's language.

Daniel's video study started in high school. When he'd eat and watch with his high school coach during lunch. He says he watches about 15-20 hours of game tape per week. Daniel says he tries to model himself after Peyton Manning and Tom Brady a couple of quarterbacks that are known as film rats, and Super Bowl Champions.
