Coach’s Commentary: Tight End

Posted by Nick Scurfield on July 22, 2012 – 12:55 pm

On Saturday, our position-by-position preview of the 2012 Texans continued with a look at the tight ends. Here’s what Texans tight ends coach Brian Pariani, who has been with the Texans since 2006, has to say about the Texans’ starter at the position:

On Owen Daniels: “O.D.’s a great leader for the team. He’s definitely a big asset, not only in the passing game but in the running game. Was huge on third downs last year for us, making plays underneath, making a lot of clutch plays. Really got back to how he played a couple years ago; was healthy, obviously, until the last playoff game after he hurt his hand against Cincinnati. But he helped us do a lot of great things offensively, running the ball, pass protection and making plays when he was called upon. He’s kind of unique in that he can get his body in some great positions. He really has great length to go get the ball, whether it’s high, low, over his head. He’s worked on that since he’s been here, and he’s a technician as a route runner. I think through the years, he continues to find another niche to make his game better. This offense really suits him, and that’s why he’s become an important part of what we do.”

The position-by-position season preview articles and Coach’s Commentary quotes for each projected starter will be featured in the 2012 Houston Texans Yearbook, which goes on sale at the Go Texan Store at Reliant Stadium and online on Saturday, July 28.
