Younger, Better and even puts points on the board! Mike Daniels fills the gap left by Cullen Jenkins without breaking the bank and brings a nasty mean streak to the defensive!

According to ProFootballFocus, only Cameron Jordan (14), Kyle D. Williams (13), J.J. Watt (11), Calais Campbell (11), Muhammad Wilkerson (11), Antonio D. Smith (8) had more sacks than Mike Daniels (7) from the 3-4 DE position.

How satisfied are you with Daniels replacing the void of Cullen Jenkins on the Packers defensive line?

I like!
I can hardly wait to see him rev up this defense this year.
As of right now he just may be my favorite defensive player.

Jenkins was better, when he was healthy. Not sure Daniels is gonna hold up against the run as Jenkins, but at least we're getting production from somebody.

Keep him fresh, and let him go after the QB.

If it were not for Nick Collins getting hurt, people would have been saying Cullen who?

Sacks are such a tiny percentage of the snaps a DL gets in a 3-4. They are just a few percent.

I don't really care if they get 2% or 4%. It really makes little difference. The other 495 snaps mean as much.

I would be just as happy to see 0 sacks, but the opposing QBs not have any room to step up in the pocket. So they are always throwing off their back foot and don't have any place to escape.

Also when Jenkins was with the Packers, the base DEs were allowed to rush up field a lot more. In the last two years base defense has been asked to play more one gap... with rumors of the Packers going to more one gap systems, it'll be very interesting to see who earns the starting base DEs roles...

I think a lot depends on the new system and what they're asked to do in it... which is why I hate waiting to figure out the new system.


It might mean something or might mean nothing, but Packers.com changed the listings and have Daniels listed as a DT (with all the NTs)... where all the other guys under 315 pounds are listed at DE instead... does that mean they don't think Daniels has the length to play 3-4 DE? Or that he's mainly going to be playing inside and not DE role? If so that means he's not going to be playing the same position as Jenkins did... though I hope Daniels can battle for the position.

sacks are a very overrated measuring stick for that particular position.

Mike Daniels has the potential for greatness. What gives him this opportunity is his tenacity, leadership qualities, and endless self-motivation. He is my favorite player on this defense.

Odd, never seen that picture of Datone before. Here's one that's more well known.

If they let them all compete for one gap 3-4 DE, it'll be interesting to see who comes up the winner between Daniels, Neal, Datone, Boyd and others... of course there are two 3-4 DEs so that might make it even more interesting...

beast (29-Sep) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (29-Sep) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (29-Sep) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (29-Sep) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (29-Sep) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
