Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for November 6, 2013

Al Bello

Now that our tears of unfathomable sadness have dried a bit, it's time to start looking forward to the Eagles on Sunday.

Happy (?) Wednesday, Packers fans. Today's injury report from practice should be a curious one, as we'll learn how much Clay Matthews and Nick Perry are able to do. For a team with virtually no pass rush from their linebackers since those two went down, their return this week against the Eagles would be a welcome shot in the arm for a defense that couldn't get off the field on Monday night.

That defensive performance, as well as the availability of those two players, are all discussed in today's curds. Oh, and there's that issue of the starting quarterback to discuss as well. Let's get to it.

Mike McCarthy confident Packers backup QB Seneca Wallace will get the job done - JSOnline
I think we're all crossing our fingers that Wallace improves from Monday to Sunday the way Matt Flynn did from the Detroit game to the New England game back in 2010.

Jermichael Finley out for season; Clay Matthews returning to practice - JSOnline
We told you about Finley's move to IR last night, but what we didn't yet know was that the Claymaker will indeed be back at practice today. Here's hoping Nick Perry will join him.

Eagles say Packers still dangerous without Rodgers | Packersnews
Yes, because of a guy named Eddie Lacy.

Rodgers' injury hurt Packers defense, too | Packersnews
Here's an interesting look at how the defense's struggles to get off the field may have been a result of Rodgers' absence. I don't buy it that much though - they had four chances to stop the Bears on that final drive and failed each time because of execution (or at least that's what I think).

Packers' secrecy borders on absurd - Drew Olson
Do you agree with Drew? Or do you think it's reasonable to withhold information until tests confirm a team's first impressions?

Special teams step up - ESPN Wisconsin
I fully expected this to be the phase of the game in which the Bears would have a chance to defeat the Packers on Monday night. For once, the Packers' special teams outplayed the Bears', and it wasn't even close.
