In an earlier edition of Cheese Curds this week, we discussed how the Green Bay Packers will need to get big performances from Nick Perry and Julius Peppers this week as pass-rushers. With the Atlanta Falcons possessing a big-play offense with an excellent quarterback, moving him off his spot in the pocket will be a critical factor. However, one player whose contributions in the pass rush are constantly undersold is Mike Daniels. The defensive tackle ranked fourth on the team in sacks...
