Cheese Curds: Daily Green Bay Packers News and Links for January 28, 2013

Who knew McCarthy and John Fox were two wild, crazy guys? - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We have statistical looks at the Packers' offensive line and defensive backs to go along with roster decisions and some great wing recipes.

It's Monday of Super Bowl week, and sadly we have to focus on the NFL Draft and two other teams playing in this year's big game. Of course, there's still worthwhile news and content about our Packers though. Take a little break from your long Monday work day for a little snack on some curds.

Ranking the 2012 Offensive Lines | ProFootballFocus
Sadly, the Packers' line was, well, offensive. PFF puts a large portion of the blame for allowing 51 sacks on Aaron Rodgers, however.

Signature Stats: First Downs Allowed - Cornerbacks | ProFootballFocus
Here, the Packers appear to be in much better shape, as Sam Shields ranked 3rd and Casey Hayward 5th in fewest first downs allowed per coverage snap. Tramon Williams was not so lucky, tying for ninth-most first downs allowed; but due to his high number of coverage snaps, he didn't show up on the board for highest first down percentage.

Jerel Worthy faces battle to return from ACL surgery | JSOnline.com
With Worthy's surgery complete, he could miss some substantial time next season. After all, Andrew Quarless didn't play at all in 2012 after having the same injury around the same time last year.

Jennings, Grant good as gone in annual roster churn | Packersnews
Mike Vandermause of the Press-Gazette doesn't see any way that Greg Jennings returns to the Packers next season. With a bunch of wideouts with great potential likely to be available on the second day of the 2013 NFL draft, I can't disagree.

NFL player poll -- 61 percent disapprove of Roger Goodell - ESPN
I'm actually a little surprised that the disapproval rating isn't higher.

Now for a little bit of Super Bowl coverage from around SBNation.com:

Alex Smith will reportedly seek release from 49ers after Super Bowl
Will he be cut or traded? With teams knowing that Smith wants out, I can't see anyone offering up more than a mid- to late-round pick for him.
