Don’t Single-Team Mike Daniels
If defensive lineman Mike Daniels has the same type of game in week 2 as he did in week 1, the Green Bay Packers are going to be in good shape.
NFL Films released their Turning Point from the Packers win over the Seattle Seahawks and it’s all about Daniels.
I was at the game, so I didn’t hear Troy Aikman exclaim, “Mike Daniels is having the game of his life!”
He did have the game of his life. We’ll see if he can keep it up.
The part I love and hadn’t realized prior to watching this was Seattle’s blocking scheme on Daniels’ strip sack. They had seven blockers in for four Packers’ rushers. Along with Daniels, the other rushers were Clay Matthews, Nick Perry and Kyler Fackrell.
So you tell me, who would you not double-team in that scenario?
The Seahawks chose to double-team the two outside rushers — Perry and Matthews, which is sensible. And then for some reason, they chose to double Fackrell instead of Daniels.
Well, good thinking…
