The Green Bay Packers desperately need to improve their defense.  One strategy may be to reshuffle it. As mentioned in the Monday morning one-liners, the Packers have slid defensive lineman Mike Neal to linebacker. Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel explains the challenges Neal has faced.  Though Neal has lost weight to assist his

This reminds me of Kampman when Capers first came to town. That didn't work out so hot, and Kampman was a much better pass rusher than Neal has been. I hope this either works or they pull the plug before it gets too far along.

Kampman was still better in that 1/2 season than anybody we've had out there since then. Not bad for his first year in transition. He could have done it but I don't blame him for going to the Jags to play his natural position and got paid a lot of money for it.

I do think Perry will be far better than Kampman every would have but he had his rookie struggles last year and played a few games with a wrist that needed surgery. I can't wait to see this year with 2 actual legit OLB

I'm tempted to say I agree, given the weakness at ILB, but supposedly better pass coverage ability is needed at ILB than OLB, so Neal would be even more a fish out of water there.

Yeah, Neal at MLB is a silly and horrible idea.

I’m hoping the Mike Neal experiment at linebacker works. I think it’s a cutting-edge attempt by Coach Capers to keep pace with a changing game. This is an attempt at creating a new kind of slash, a defensive lineman/linebacker. I’m interested to see where this leads. If the game was to one day eliminate three and four-point stances, this could become the wave of the future.

I just find it hard to believe this plan is going to work effectively.
It will probably be "back to the drawing board" after the 3rd preseason game.

My gut feeling on this is that they want to use him situationally or against teams where they need a rush and a run stuffer, not necessarily a prsuer. Two games against the Vikings, games against SF, NY, WAS, PIT and ATL (more so for Jackson than Green) and that fits almost half the schedule. If Perry is healthy and continues to develop this may not be necessary, but Neal can also go to end in sub packages so his versatility will help, too.
