Three Things from the Packers’ 17-9 win over Seattle in Week 1

La Crosse, WI, United States / Classic Rock 100.1

1) Mike Daniels is a freaking beast.

Daniels was a force on the offensive line, recording 1.5 sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss, hitting Russell Wilson four times over the course of yesterday’s game. He also had the most important play of the game, forcing the Wilson fumble that set up the Packers on first-and-goal, which the Green Bay offense promptly punched in via a Ty Montgomery touchdown. It was obvious how good Daniels was, and he made an impression on new teammate Ricky-Jean Francois.

Also, holding Eddie Lacy to JUST THREE YARDS ON FIVE CARRIES was icing on the cake.

2) Aaron Rodgers is still a pre-snap master.

I don’t know how #12 continues to do it, but he is a master of catching other teams off-guard, most often with too many men on the field. The 32-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to Jordy Nelson at the end of the 3rd quarter on the #FreePlay was a thing of beauty.

3. I think we’re going to like Martellus Bennett.

I initially didn’t love Bennett shoving KJ Wright after a late(-ish) hit on Aaron Rodgers, but after reflecting on it for a bit, HELL YEAH. Not only will Martellus be a factor in the passing game, but he’s a big, take-no-crap player that you’re glad is on your team.
