3 Ways Mike Daniels Embodies Everything the Packers Are

Mike Daniels is an explosive player in more ways than one. On the field, he is a beast...I recently quipped that the Army had called Daniels on the phone to see if they could recruit him to drop out of planes as a bunker buster. During the loss to the Colts, I stood speechless watching Daniels take not one, not two...but three players to task and almost sack Andrew Luck for a safety. But to me, right now, Mike Daniels is more than just a dominant player...he embodies a lot of who the Packers are right now. Here are three reasons…

One of the surprises of the Packers' 2016 season so far is the revolving door at the running back position.

There is a saying in the NFL that there are no moral victories and that is true. A win is a win is a win and a loss the same. The Packers were unable to get a "W" yesterday and that is disappointing, especially as it pertains to the NFC North race. The Packers, with the loss against the Falcons, put themselves behind the 8-ball in the North and Packers fans find themselves hoping for a Jay Cutler (brief) resurgence tonight as the Bears take on the Vikings on MNF. There are no moral victories...however.... (more…)
