Mike Daniels is probably right.
Daniels told Sports Illustrated he doesn’t think the Green Bay Packers’ defense gets the respect it deserves.
Daniels pointed to the team’s 2016 rankings against the run (8th) and in sacks (6th). Probably not coincidentally, he left out the Packers’ ranking against the pass (31st).
Daniels also points out the play of ascending players like Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Nick Perry.
Nationally, no one talks about the Packers’ defense and there’s good reason for that. They’re always overshadowed by the offense and, as we’ve seen so many times, they just can’t seem to pull it together in the playoffs.
Respect is earned.
Go out and earn it.
What? is he kidding? 31-0 early into the 3rd quarter? and Daniels wants respect? They shit the bed so bad that I could smell it . . . Zero sacks, zero FF’s, zero int’s. 493 yards allowed. Matty “ICE”? 392 yards? 27of 38 with Zero int’s? 5 for 6 in the red zone? Did Daniels take over J. Jolly’s “purple drank”? They were not even in the same fucking game thanks to their play . . .
MMTT and Kozak have it exactly right.
M D should stfu and try to play football at the same level of the smack talk that comes out of his mouth.
8th against the rush? (why run against the Packers with that pass defense (duh).
Dix had a decent year and Perry now has had 1 good season in five. Gee, so those things are why the Packers deserve more respect?
Someone should remind Mr. Daniels not one player, made a play against the Falcons…not one. 31 points given up a minute into the 3rd quarter, and Daniels demands respect.
Maybe after Daniels gives birth to that massive growth around his waist, he’ll feel better.
Daniels wants respect? The same respect he showed the Falcons offense before the game? Before…..the Falcons steamrolled his mighty Packer defense.
What a fool. Is this his attempt at trying to be a leader again?
Teammates be like, ‘Mike being Mike’ and then they get on with playing football while Daniels stews and continues to get his ass handed to him.
A bona-fide bad ass doesn’t run around talking about being one. He just is one.
The defensive stat sheet for that Falcons game is all you have to look at when wondering where all the respect is. Straight zeros across the board, up and down, for everyone. That’s how much respect you deserve. 000000
That’s like admiring Mike Ditka’s intellect, or your average ‘sconnie’s physical fitness….
