Packers' Mike Daniels eyes defensive leadership role

GOOD! Clay start taking notes on this guy! I want angry and pissed off Datone Jones next year. I want pissed off Perry. I want motivated Worthy with a healthy offseason of conditioning and mini-camps. I want a hungry Boyd next year. I want the defense to be pissed off and not this 'keep calm and carry on' bullshit. Save that for the offense since it reflects Rodgers. While you're at it Daniels, light a napalm fire under the safeties.

Quote:
"When you're younger, you're a little more impressionable, it's easier to get (to them) than a guy who's been doing it for six or seven years," Daniels said. "I want to get my hands on those young guys.

"I've been in Josh Boyd and Datone's ears a lot. Even my own peers, Perry, Hayward, Worthy, (Jarrett) Boykin, I've been after all those guys. We have to get this done. We're third-year guys. Seems like yesterday we were rookies, but we're no longer rookies. It's time to go. It's time for us to be leaders and so let's lead. Instead of complaining about we need leaders, be the leader."


Nice to see some accountability from somebody on this defense!

And he has backed it up with performance on the field.

A smaller more mobile D Line with those four guys mentioned being the main part of the rotation - Daniels, D. Jones, Worthy, and Boyd - will make the Packers D a lot more effective, both against the run and rushing the passer.

Yeah, the ideology of having big fatties occupying blockers while the linebackers clean up is good if those fatties are actually occupying blockers. When those turds are being stood straight up by one guy and playing like they are on roller skates - then we have major problems. I think adding Jolly and another rookie to the mix and ridding ourselves of Pickett and Raji will do wonders.

We also need a goon. Like who was it, Brian Williams on the '96 team? Or a Lyle Alzado or Bill Romanowski type dude who is going to protect our guys.

Remember when Brandon Merriweather speared Lacy in the helmet, giving him a concussion? Then the next series did the same thing to Starks? We need a guy who's gonna go out there and shut that fucking bullshit down. By fear, if by no other means. This team has enough injury problems without that kind of bullshit.

We play Detroit TWICE a year. The officials clearly cannot be relied upon to protect our guys.

We have another guy who plays like Daniels on the line and a healthy season at the OLB position and things get immediately better

I'll say!

Daniels said he thought the defense bought into coach Mike McCarthy's challenge that it play a more physical brand of football and bring an edge to its game. He said in training camp and the early part of the season, it was evident the defense was on a mission.

Asked if he thought that feeling waned as the season wore on, he said he couldn't deny there was a change.

"We were doing very well with it, we were," he said. "Everyone witnessed it. But you could still see where that was not the norm yet. That's what Coach McCarthy is doing. He wants to make that the norm, as do I.

"And guess what? It's going to become the norm. And that will be our reputation because you can see it with those second- and third-year guys, and we want to bring the rookies up just like that. You can already tell, we're here to bring that. But we have to keep it like that."


This is encouraging. I wish him well.

Wayne Simmons. Yes, we need to add 2 or 3 just like him...

Wayne Simmons, not Brian Williams. That dude had an edge that set the tone for the defense. Reggie was the leader, Butler was, in my estimation, the guy who made it all come together, Simmons was the guy who had the relentless, attacking and sometimes borderline personality and playing style that rubbed off on everyone on that defense.

He brought the nasty every play, and wanted to hurt the opponent, if at all possible, within and sometimes at the fringe of the rules of the game.

This team needs SOMEONE to step up and grab this defense by the nose and lead it to something far beyond what we have had for several years now.

Thanks for the article, it was a great read, and I love hearing someone decide to step up. I'm not quoting verbatim but he had a quote about how he can't complain about there not being enough leaders, he needs to step up and be the change he's clamoring for. Good to see for a change!!
