With Mike Neal being needed at OLB that means we should see more Datone Jones, right?

If Datone wants to be known as one of the all-time greatest DEs, he needs to bring it!

I wouldn't think so. Mike Neal's position this year is OLB. So the rotation at DL hasn't changed due to injury to OLB. However, it seems like I have definitely seen him on the field more recently.

They should switch Datone and Mike Daniels to OLB.

I would really like to see Datone get some time at OLB. He played some LB his SR year in college as a pass rusher from a two point stance.

I think the Packers could use Datone as a pass rusher espeically on the 2-4 nickel... where OLB is really playing a 4-2 DE like role.


As for Daniels, he moves very well, but I'm not sold on him being at OLB. I wouldn't mind trying it in practice to see if it might work thought.

If Daniels is going to play a LB spot, I'd want it to be in the former 3-4 system the Packers run which was more high risk / high reward and they asked their DL to pass rush a bit more and asking their ILBers (mainly Hawk) to deal with OL getting to them more. In fact, I think Hawk was being asked to play a LB/DL hybird role, which he had to move quickly to get to a OL blocking and try to beat them while keeping the ILB clean.

I think Daniels might be a very good fit for that LB/DL tweener role.

Well, assuming we can get some guys healthy and the new found pass rush from Perry coming from the right holds up, Daniels and Jones should get 1 on 1 matchups on the inside. It'll be up to Jones at that point to take advantage.

If we're going to stand everyone up we might as well just run the Psycho package. The personnel we have now might have more success with it than when we tried it with Matthews and a horde of bums.

Of the healthy guys, I think the strength of this defense is the NTs (Pickett, Raji and Jolly) and Daniels. Packers defense is ranked 3rd best against the run... and I'm assuming part of the reason the Broncos are #1 is because teams stop running as much trying to keep up with the Broncos offense.

But I don't think they could get all the NTs on the field AND playing well in the Psycho package.


I think it'd be best to stay with in the system that's already in place, other than maybe try to get OLB some more depth there maybe by letting them using Datone Jones some and asking other DL to step up for Jones at push DT in the nickel package. Maybe get Raji, Jolly, Daniels, Wilson more snaps in the pass rush DT role if the can handle it with out dropping off what they were already doing.

I wouldn't count on it, but Boyd might even be active for his first game of the season (because of so many injuries)

Daniels has been our only pass rush from the D-line all year. Why on earth would anybody want to make in a LB?

1: He can get to the QB.

2: He's undersized for our DL.

3: The DL in our system is supposed to take up blockers, to allow the LBs to get to the QB.

I agree. Daniels has played extremely well on the DL. I don't see that bulk transferring to LB. Not at all. As for Datone Jones, I am really looking forward to him getting off the schneid and making a big impact as a pass rusher. Pile up some sacks. Force some turnovers. he did make that really nice fumble recovery last week to help add the FG before the half.

1. No shit that's his role on the DL

2. He's not the right size for an OLB either. Plus he's been just as beastly at stopping run plays so I don't see how his size is relevant at all.

3. The nickle DL in our system is supposed to get to the QB and he's the only one whose been able to do it.

Regarding Datone, that's what I'm waiting for and IMHO the more snaps he gets the better he is going to be.

This isn't Madden. You can't just take players and have them all of a sudden play a completely different position. It's hard enough to successfully change a player's with an entire offseason, and you expect it to work out with three days of practice?

I don't disagree. My comment was mostly tongue in cheek based on every name thrown into the pool for alternative options at OLB. If we had everyone healthy I wouldn't mind seeing us try the psycho package once or twice; but everyone healthy isn't a luxury the Packers have claimed in years.
