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.
