There was a time Mike Neal let expectations soar. He was bold. He set the bar high. He warned everyone he was coming.

Quote:
The first padded practice as an edge rusher was everything Green Bay could have hope. With a jarring punch, the 26-year-old who bench-pressed 500-plus pounds in college hinted that he'd be a threat standing up. He's able to bend at the waist easier; he gets a running start.

In gaining speed, flexibility the position demands, Neal does not believe he compromised strength.

"I can still generate that power and explosiveness coming off of one step, two steps and being able to get separation," Neal said. "I'm just a little bit smaller."

The Packers have been coy on Neal's role. Last week, defensive line coach Mike Trgovac raved about Neal's pass-rushing ability. In nickel packages, he could remain a down lineman, shooting gaps. Green Bay will not want him exposed in coverage. Maybe he's in a three-point stance one play, standing up the next.

Five years in, Clay Matthews still needs a running mate at outside linebacker. Biting his tongue, he noted that defenses — just like offenses — start the season with "unscouted" looks, too. And the Packers do have a few new wrinkles for the rematch, he added.

Here is to hoping... but until Neal provides results on the field, I shall temper my excitement.

I just haven't seen "it" from him to make me a believer that he will have a sizable impact. Hope my negative Nancy attitude towards Neal gets slapped smack off me..

He looked dominant in the last preseason game.

It remains to be seen how he will look in the regular season. And how long it will take before offenses "figure him out." And how he reacts to that.

Neal and Daniels - two guys who looked like potential breakout difference makers this preseason if they can keep it going when the games matter.

If this OLB thing works out with Neal, they should try it with Daniels too. Undersized guy who gets to the QB.
