AM Quickslant: The Missing Piece to the Packers Defense

  3 years ago     74 Views     Leave your thoughts  

"The day this Packers defense finds a vocal leader who can walk the talk is the day the Packers go from perennial playoff team to dynasty." Well Mike Daniels has been in the news this off-season. This guy obviously has what it takes to be a difference maker on the Packers D-line. And this D-line has every indication of improvement with BJ Raji back at nose tackle, getting healthy, Datone Jones expected to make a big step forward, and the addition of Julius Peppers (D-line...OLB...doesn't matter!)

Here comes the RADAR...get down! Last night, Bucky Brooks put his top 5 pass-rushing duos in the NFL. Not surprisingly, this list did not contain one duo that many in #packernation are very excited about...Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers.

Ted Thompson is not afraid to scan the Division II and III ranks in search of hidden talent he can add to the Packers. And, he's found some decent gems that made their names in a Division II or III school. Some of these are names we've come to know well. They started in smaller colleges and found a home with the Packers. Names like Erik Walden, James Starks, Jamari Lattimore, and the fan-favorite John Kuhn are all from Division II or Division III schools. So, I started to wonder what Division II and III players have been making a…

Hargrove’s Return Could Spark the Packers Down the Stretch

The Packers will have to do without Anthony Hargrove for the first eight games of the season this year. While there's little doubt the defensive line could really use his contribution in the first half of the season, I'm wondering if there is a surprise benefit to Hargrove not hitting the field until the Arizona game on November 4th.
