Friday Morning Green Bay Packers, NFL News And Links: Ray Nitschke, Jermichael Finley, And Winning

After Wednesday's drought, Thursday was a day loaded with good content from all around the internet. Biggie ups to the entire internet world for upping their game. As I discussed yesterday, the NFL players, Roger Goodell, and some owners had discussions over three days in Chicago ahead of Friday's big court ruling, and I'm optimistic that this means the lockout will end soon. Based on how much other people are writing about actual football right now, I'm obviously not alone in this thinking. Let's get to the Green Bay Packers news and links.
