Mike Daniels WIll Be The Only Former Packers’ Player In The Super Bowl
Green Bay Packers will not have much representation in the Super Bowl. Obviously, they aren’t there, but also, their former players aren’t really there either. This isn’t a situation like the Detroit Lions where Matt Stafford is there. I called Lions’ fans ‘losers’ last week for cheering on Stafford but realized that was kind of a dick move. It’s a little weird to be going nuts for him like that one fan who went viral, but at the same time, there is nothing wrong with cheering for a guy you loved that didn’t wreck the franchise. Green Bay will have one former Packer potentially in the Super Bowl and that is Mike Daniels, the former defensive tackle. Daniels will be appearing in his first Super Bowl if he does get elevated from the practice squad.

It doesn’t seem like Daniels was able to go on Sunday due to the groin issue that has been bothering him the last few weeks. Or Cincinnati decided to keep him on the practice squad. But assuming two weeks will help it, Daniels will likely be able to suit up for Cincinnati when the Super Bowl rolls around. Despite rubbing some people inside the Packers organization the wrong way, Daniels was always a genuine, stand-up dude. It is hard not to root for him to get his first ring. If you’re looking for a reason to cheer on Cincinnati besides the improbable story, look no further than Daniels.
