The Packers Are Nerds, But They Can Beat You Up
The Green Bay Packers are a weird bunch.
This year, it's the defense's odd obsession that's garnering media attention. That obsession? Anime, evidently.
Bill Simmons' The Ringer outlines the defense's love of Japanese animation.
"Okay, it may be for nerds," says Mike Daniels in the piece. "But we are a new wave of nerd who can beat you up."
Evidently Daniels is the ring leader of what's described as "the NFL's only known anime ring." Nick Perry, Datone Jones, Clay Matthews, Sam Barrington, Morgan Burnett, and even Eddie Lacy have been known to dabble as well.
I guess if you're going to be a nerd, it's good to have some big friends.
