Well, that was nice. After two preseason games that left a sour taste in everyone's mouth, the Green Bay Packers looked much better on Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. It still wasn't perfect, but when is preseason ever perfect? Aaron Rodgers looked better, the first team defense looked better, and there were positives from the second team defense. That second team offense, though? Ugh. We'll talk more about that later. For now, here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
I'm suddenly feeling much better about our running backs.
Another post along the same lines.
This is a very kind headline.
Either he's lying or everyone who is not a member of the Packers' staff sucks at watching football.
Sounds about right, though Benson probably deserved a spot on "the good".
Always a good post.
Yep. They're bad.
More from around SB Nation after the jump.
I hope you didn't see this live, because it was gross.

This is odd timing.
