I think the Jolly decision is coming right down to the wire.  Going to be tough decisions on the DL this year.

They will count Neal as an OLB, keep 7 DL.  They all fit then.

That would mean cutting Boyd or Wilson.  I've had Jolly in over Boyd, but I don't think of it as a done deal.

No it really wouldnt.  If you count Neal as an OLB on the DL you have
1. Raji
2. Pickett
3. Jones
4. Wilson
5. Daniels
6. Boyd
7. Jolly

Am I missing someone? 

The OLB cuts would be interesting. Locks for Clay, Perry, Neal.  Moses seems like a lock then you have Palmer and Mulumba.  One of those two would definitely have to be on the PS but would either make it there?

It never seems to work very good.  I don't see the point of giving up 15 yards for free.  Maybe you are right about Matthews, Jones and Perry, but that defense always seems to cost the Packers or just nearly cost them.

The point is to get the defense off the field. The yardage doesn't matter.

Now I get what you're saying.  I don't see them keeping Neal on as a pure OLB though.  I see 7 DL, with Neal being one of them.

They would have also chased that play down from behind for a much shorter gain.

But they dont really need to call him a DL specifically if he can play OLB as well.  It gives the team roster flexibility and if the last DL is more valuable to the team than the last OLB then you have the ability to do that.  I think Palmer or Mulumba has a better chance to make the PS than Boyd so I would go that route

STL special teams are kicking our a@@


How's that?

Maybe 3 plays... 1 big return when backups were in, 1 bonehead play by Brandon Smith not getting away from ball on ground and it touches him and Crosby kick that was partially blocked... but still good.

I think special teams in first half for Packers was great other than Tavecchio missed FG...  we bottled up Austin on punt/kick returns very well.

I tend to agree with your logic, I just don't expect it to play out that way.  I think it would be safe enough to stash Palmer on the PS.

Nice to see Coleman play better.  Great catch by Stoneburner.

Maybe but with how good the Packers are at drafting I think teams take notice when they cut a guy they used a pick on.  How often have we been able to stash our own draft picks (not counting 7th rounders) on the PS?

Stoneburner just proved why he might be able to be put on the PS that was a hellava play by him

If I have to choose between risking Boyd or Palmer, it's going to be Palmer.

Oh I agree I just dont think it is safe to assume Palmer makes it there.  I love the idea of keeping 7 DL and Neal as a hybrid.  Jolly has earned a spot as even though I missed the second half of the game it sounds like he played a great game.  I saw Wilson blow up a run earlier as well
