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. Some players have had game-changing performances (see: Clay Matthews forced fumble in Super Bowl XLV) and some have displayed wondrous athleticism. However, none have brought to the table what Mike Daniels has brought to the defense since he arrived in 2012...

How Will the Packers’ Run Defense Perform in 2015?

It was a tale of two halves for the Green Bay Packers in terms of its run defense last season, and it may be the biggest question facing the team heading into the 2015 season. 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...

Packers D-line Dilemma – Draft Choice vs Free Agent

The Green Bay Packers are hoping for a major step-up this season with their defense. There will be make-overs in the secondary as well as inside linebacker. But it will be up to the Packers defensive line to make the biggest jump this year in order to earn a trip to Super Bowl 50. The experts argue that the lines on both offense and defense dictate the game. The Packers have developed...

Ryan Offers Hope Inside

Three years ago, I raved about a fourth-round pick from a Big 10 school. That player was Iowa defensive end Mike Daniels. Well, I’m about to do the same thing about another fourth-round pick from a Big 10 school. This time the player is Jake Ryan, the throwback inside linebacker from Michigan who’ll now be joining Daniels in Green Bay. Ryan isn’t quite as talented as the five...

BREAKING: Green Bay Packers select Christian Ringo, DL, Louisiana-Lafayette, 210

He recorded 11.5 sacks to lead his conference and tied the school record for career sacks with 21. A small-school prospect with upside, he can potentially bring some skills as a defensive end in a -4 scheme. Mostly unknown, he was off the radar for...

Looking Back at the 2012 Green Bay Packers Draft

With the draft only three days away, let’s take a look at the last draft class we can make meaningful judgments on: 2012. With their fourth season approaching and fifth year options on the line, some players have a lot to live up to still, and that is true in Green Bay. In 2011, the Packers had their greatest regular season in recent memory, dismantling opponent after opponent...

Packers Begin Offseason Workouts

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has declared that the 2015 team won’t use “remember Seattle” as its battle cry.  I’m, of course, referring to the horrific collapse late in the 2014 NFC Championship game that saw a Packers team that was in control and poised to make yet another Super Bowl appearance, only to squander it away in the most dramatic fashion.  McCarthy...

Mike Daniels next in line for new deal from Packers?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Mike Daniels is one of the most underrated members of the Green Bay Packers’ defense, and was ranked the 11th best interior pass rusher in the entire NFL. That is an impressive ranking, and it’s hard to see Ted Thompson letting a guy like him leave anytime soon if he has anything to say about it. PackersNews.com brought up the question of whether...

Top Free Agent Fits for Packers

The Green Bay Packers have just under $22 million in cap space left this season.  They’ll need somewhere between $2-$3 million to sign their draft class.  General manager Ted Thompson and vice president of football administration/player finance Russ Ball also like to roll some cap space over to the following season so we can assume that not all of those dollars will be spent...

Packers Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory in NFC Championship

Fans of the Green Bay Packers witnessed a game yesterday that will go down in Packers' lore...for all the wrong reasons. The team played 56 minutes of good, not great, football against a Seattle Seahawks team they had on the ropes, waiting for a knockout punch that never came. In the end, the beaten and bruised champ rose from the canvas (or turf, in this case) and wound up delivering...

Packing the Stats: The Green Bay Packers Pass Rush Under Dom Capers

The Green Bay Packers pass rush under Dom Capers has been a hot-button issue seemingly since the fall of the Roman Empire (which happened right around 2011 if my public school education serves me right).
