Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for October 18, 2013

Matthew Stockman

Green Bay needs big days from Jermichael Finley and Jarrett Boykin on Sunday.

With Randall Cobb out and James Jones still a question mark for Sunday's game, the Green Bay Packers will likely be leaning on veteran tight end Jermichael Finley this week to carry a bigger load as a receiver. That theme is prevalent in today's cheese curds, as is the rest of the Packers' receiving corps.

"I’d say I’m more a tight end." I wonder if he'll be saying the same thing in the spring when he's eligible for free agency.

On that note, it's time for him to step up and be more effective as a slot receiver. Expect a lot of sets with Nelson, Finley, and Boykin as the three wideouts.

"He’s pretty even-keeled throughout the course of a game." That's exactly what we like to see out of players: never get too high or too low.

Not if the play-action to Eddie Lacy is working. That will be the biggest key to Sunday's game, in my mind.
