Mike Daniels

D-lightful Start To Season

The Packers’ defense often resembles the Bad News Bears, but it usually looks like the ’85 Chicago Bears against Seattle. Sunday was no exception as Mike Daniels and the front seven dominated and helped hold quarterback Russell Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks’ offense to 9 points and 225 yards. There’s no question the

10 Most Irreplaceable Packers

We all found out last September just how important one player can be to the fortunes of a football team. The season-ending injury to Sam Shields also ended any chance the pass defense had of being competent. With that in mind, here’s my annual list of the 10 most irreplaceable Packers heading into training camp:

Positional Analysis: Defensive End

This is the ninth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (C+): Seven-year vet Mike Daniels is the only quality end on the roster, but considering how rarely the Packers line up in their base defense (136 times in 1,239 snaps), that’s probably enough. The former Iowa star was a bit inconsistent last

Who’s Defensive POY?

There’s no doubt Aaron Rodgers is Green Bay’s most valuable player. Heck, he’ll probably finish in the top 5 when the NFL announces its MVP in February. The offensive player of the year – if you take 12 out of the equation – is either David Bakhtiari or Jordy Nelson. And the rookie of the

Best At The Bye

The Packers played only 3 games prior to their bye, and while things will obviously change between now and January, here are the 10 best players as of today: 1. Mike Daniels – The veteran defensive lineman was named the team’s MVP last season, and he’s well on his way to going back-to-back. He’s the main

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DET

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Lions: —General manager Ted Thompson has an extremely difficult decision to make in regard to the future of T.J. Lang, and the veteran guard is doing all he can to

10 Most Irreplaceable Packers

We all found out in a preseason game against the Steelers last August just how important one player can be to the fortunes of a football team. With that in mind, here’s a look at the 10 most irreplaceable Packers heading into next week’s draft: 1) AARON RODGERS – Absolutely no surprise here. In fact, No. 12

Best Moves Of 2015

Now that another Packers’ season has come to an end, it’s once again time to look back at the best moves made by GM Ted Thompson in the past calendar year. 1) SIGNING JAMES JONES – Bringing back the veteran wide receiver may have seemed like a no-brainer, but hey, you’d be surprised by how many

Done Deal For Daniels

It was always a question of when and not if Mike Daniels was going to sign an extension with the Packers. General manager Ted Thompson doesn’t let good young players get away, and the 26-year-old defensive end might be his best young player. The question of when was answered on Monday. Daniels agreed to terms on
