Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels was named to the Pro Bowl roster Tuesday. He replaces Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who the league announced won’t participate because of an injury.

It’s Daniels’ first trip to the Pro Bowl. He was an alternate each of the past three seasons.

Daniels started all 14 games he played this season, making a career-best 72 tackles while finishing third on the team with five sacks. He becomes the Packers’ first defensive lineman to make the Pro Bowl since B.J. Raji in 2011.

Daniels joins Raji, Bob Brown (1972), Henry Jordan (1960-61, 1963, 1966) and Dave Hanner (1953-54) as the only Packers defensive tackles to make the Pro Bowl.

    Wait, what? You’d think some DT would have fallen into a Pro Bowl once in the last 45 years.

    I guess you could also say you would think the Vikings could win one super bowl in 57 Years

    How is it different from the “other” requirement?

    Really just more of a common sense thing….Viking fans wouldn’t understand. Let me break it down for you. If you’re going to constantly trash a team like you and teddy do, the team you root for should be as historically good, if not better, than the team your trashing, otherwise you just sound stupid.

  7. If you think winning a Super Bowl is as easy as getting one player from a position group into a Pro Bowl
    ——-
    No, obviously winning a SB is much more difficult….which is exactly why fans of a team that has never won one shouldn’t throw shade on a team that has multiples….it’s unbecoming.

    Pretty tough to get the pro bowl when you have the Williams Wall in the division, and increase the difficultly even more so, when they are taking StarCaps.

  9. Glad Mike Daniels made it though I was hoping Arizona’s 1st year starting 3-4DE 6″5/299pd Olsen Pierre would of made it. Pierre was an absolute monster in his 1st season starting with 5.5 sacks/51 QB pressures/24 QB hits, PFF gave him an 81.9 overall grade. Given that was his 1st year starting Pierre is going to develop an absolute monster going into years 2-3 starting. Big 6″4/298pd DE Robert Nkimdiche took off this season as well in his first year getting a lot of playing time with 19 QB Hits/35 QB pressures/1 forced fumble. Nkimdiche has all the talent in the world and a LIGHTING FAST get off coming off the ball, extremely explosive with elite power he just needed to develop his technique as he was so raw. His technique is far improved, he absolute man handled both the NYG and Hawks and in weeks 16-17, and was a beast versus the run. PFF gave him an overall grade of 75.7 on the year. Nkimdiche just keeps getting better and better, with his technique getting a lot better this offseason I think next year is the year he is going to absolutely take off into stardom as a 3-4DE, i’d bet he posts somewhere between 6-9 sacks next year.
