The value of Jermichael Finley's presence - NFC North Blog - ESPN. He wasn't used so much as a decoy last week, but the Broncos paid him so much attention that it left other receivers with lesser coverage. And I'm a little worried that the Packers are giving him the Cullen Jenkins treatment: one last big season before he leaves in free agency. Though GM Ted Thompson has made some recent efforts recently to re-sign Aaron Rodgers's receivers.

Packers' Williams hoping to shoulder more of a load - JSOnline. He appeared to be giving more cushion to Lloyd and Decker than I would expect. It's probably a good idea to be cautious with his injured shoulder, but it could lessen his effect over the next couple weeks.

Green Bay Packers news | Green Bay Packers RB James Starks works to develop instincts, vision | Green Bay Press Gazette. He's a great runner, but I would love to see him break a big touchdown run.

WAUK-AM - 10/06/11 For Matthews, one is lonely number. He is playing well, but I do think his quad injury is limiting him.

Talk of 16-0 Begins | Cheesehead TV. I expect the Packers to win every week, but they aren't going 16-0. They'll have a bad week or lose a close game sometime over their next 12 games.

Below the Belt: Poor Tackling in the Secondary | AllGreenBayPackers.Com. Mike McCarthy has said that the lockout has led to bad tackling. Their defense is no exception, but I expect they'll get better as the season goes on.
