DC Dom Capers: 'The big plays, we’ve got to get that squared away'

Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers caught a break when the offense nose dived so badly against the Cardinals, many didn't notice the poor play of the defense. Capers, while getting a do-over at the expense of the offense, says the unit has to tighten up. "Well, we knew going in that it was the No. 1 offense in the NFL. It was going to be a challenge.

DL Mike Daniels on extension: 'I’ve heard a lot of horror stories, so I’m glad I’m here'

While Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels  focused soley on the season at hand, he let his reps handle the work of his future.

Packers Can Right Ship with Win in Detroit

For some reason, in the Mike McCarthy era, the Green Bay Packers have often played their best when their backs are against a wall. And after losing four of five games, it’s clear that the Packers are in a desperate situation and in desperate need of a win. So what should we expect from the Packers on Thursday night in Detroit? I’d expect them to come out swinging. That’s exactly...

Too Many Turkeys On Thanksgiving

The Packers’ stunning loss to the Bears on Thanksgiving night was a true team effort. And while a handful of players performed admirably (T.J. Lang, JC Tretter, Mike Daniels, Sam Shields and Quinten Rollins), the majority were either just OK or downright bad.

As with any general question related to the game of football, statistics can only tell us so much.  What they do show...

Reactions to Green Bay Packers training camp day 12

It seems as though day 12 of camp for the Green Bay Packers was seen as a cause for concern on the defensive side of the ball. There is a lack of depth on the defensive line currently due to injuries around the team. Letroy Guion, Bruce Gaston and Mike Daniels were all out to injury and illness. Also, for the first half of practice the defense was without B.J. Raji. He ended up...

Packers: Why Green Bay Should Give Mike Daniels an Extension

The Green Bay Packers have been consistently good over the past decade for two big reasons: they draft good players and then re-sign them to long-term contracts. It really sounds very simple. But, trust me, it’s hard to do. Yet, Packers general manager Ted Thompson has had great success with his team-building philosophy, he just needs to keep applying the same methods, which would...

Green Bay Packers should extend Mike Daniels sooner rather than later

Since the Green Bay Packers moved to a 3-4 defense in 2008, they’ve had some very impactful players and a few elite ones.

The Packers finished 20th overall in the NFL allowing 4.3 yards per carry. They were often embarrassing in the first half of the year allowing 4.8 yards per carry and really tightened it up in the second half...
