I wouldn't go that far, Daniel was the main protagonist much more than Jack was.
Yes, he was, in framing the back story, figuring out how the gate works and then how to get the team back home, but having already solved those problems in the movie, he wasn't really necessary for the TV series since it was an action/adventure show. The Daniel character could've been just a supporting role, something like General Hammond or Dr. Frasier, with the main focus being on O'Neill and his team of "this week's redshirts."

I'm glad they didn't go that route, but if RDA had been a camera hog it probably could've turned out that way.
