Packers Morning Buzz: It's The Mike Daniels Show
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a cup of coffee (or brew some tea, if that’s your thing) and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Eric Baranczyk and Pete Dougherty's look at the quietly excellent play from Kenny Clark against the Seahawks.
Mike Daniels was without question the Green Bay Packers’ player of the game in their win over Seattle on Sunday.
But another big reason coordinator Dom Capers’ defense held the Seahawks to only three field goals was Daniels’ partner in the interior of the defensive line, second-year pro Kenny Clark.
The two provided the backbone for the Packers’ nitro package, where safety Morgan Burnett moves up to inside linebacker. For that smaller, faster lineup to work, the interior of the defensive line has to win against the run, and on Sunday both Daniels and Clark won consistently.
