Daniels wants 'dominating' standard for improving Packers defense

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Oct 21, 2013

The Green Bay Packers' defense seemed to own the Cleveland Browns for most of their 31-13 win on Sunday.

However, one lineman sees even more potential for a Packers defense that has given up just 13 points per game in their last three contests.

When Mike Daniels heard 620WTMJ/NBC26's Larry McCarren say on "Packers Live" his defense gave up 216 yards to Cleveland, he double-taked, "How many total yards?"

When McCarren confirmed tha total, Daniels retorted, "It's about 200 too much."

Certainly, it's understandable if Daniels was exaggerating, but his comment afterward seemed to be no exaggeration.

"Quite frankly, I'd like to go and blow teams out every week.  It doesn't seem feasible, but we're the Packers.  We do the impossible," he added on the show which airs on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26.

Daniels and his Packers defensive teammates rank 15th in the NFL in total defense and 12th in points, but he sees much bigger things for his injury-riddled but recently-stellar defense.

"It's all about dominating them, then sacks, interceptions and big plays like that will happen."
