    Hope he's back for the Chargers. I would like to see him have a 3 sack day against Rivers.

    Best of luck to Neal, hopefully he can provide some pass-rush upon return.

    3 sack day? Let's start with baby steps, like "staying healthy".

    I love that guy.

    However, I hope his first game is the one I'm gonna be at, in San Diego.... because the over/under on how many games he will play without getting another nagging injury is ........ not high.

    I'm a big fan of Mike Neal. I feel he has had some unfortunate luck and he is waiting to prove all the doubters wrong

    So the earliest Neal could return to the practice field would be Oct. 31. That would be seven weeks after he had surgery to remove loose chunks of cartilage in his left knee. Neal originally sustained the injury during an Aug. 16 training camp practice when he planted wrong during a non-contact drill, but he didn’t have the surgery until Sept. 13 after the knee didn’t respond to treatment and rehabilitation.

    As ecstatic as I would be if Neal were to return in time for the Chargers game, at this point I'd be thrilled to just have him in any game this season.

    Lets face it guys. We don't need him. We're 7-0. It would be icing on the cake if anything.

    I do think we "need" him. But I also think we "need" someone like Finley, even though we won the SB without him. Sure we can win without the guy, but it sure would open things up for us if we had him. I have resigned myself to the idea that he won't play this year, though.

    But it would be sooooo Sweeeeet to see him barreling down on Rivers on 4th down and watch him throw the ball out of bounds.

    Neal comes back and plays to his potential and the other guys get healthy, we are looking at a whole different D the second half.

    Get our big pass rushing DE back is always a good thing, I mean nothing against Pickett, dude is great against the run, but we need to get someone to help Raji with the inside pressure. ... Disrupt the QBs we face and what not.

    Seriously, let's get through one game without going down, watch some film and see how it goes. I think he should even split time his first couple games back. It's not like we're dying at that position, and having a healthy bench is the most important thing for the Pack in the big picture.

    I think the bye week gives the secondary a chance to get fairly healthy and we'll be looking at a whole different D the second half anyway.
