Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for December 10, 2013

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

For guys who were written off recently, Jarrett Bush and Mason Crosby have come up big recently.

As we finish our looks back at Sunday's win for the Green Bay Packers, we continue to take a look at the factors that contributed to the win. One of the big factors was Mason Crosby, who hit all three field goal attempts, and he features prominently in today's curds. The defense's performance is also highlighted. Eat up!

Packers' approaches with Crosby, Ross lead to different places - ESPN Wisconsin
Both are playing very well right now for different NFC North teams. It's too bad it took a change of scenery for Ross to turn it around.

Sticking with Crosby has paid off - Green Bay Packers Blog - ESPN
Crosby has the second-most made field goals in the league, is in the top half of the league's kickers in percentage, and is 4-for-6 on the 50+ yarders that drove him crazy last year (2-9).

Finally, a strong defensive stand - Green Bay Packers Blog - ESPN
That will tend to happen when you miss only two tackles instead of whiffing on 15 like they did against the Lions.

Capers' tinkering pays dividends for defense | Packersnews
Let's run down some of the tweaks: Micah Hyde in the nickel, Sean Richardson in for M.D. Jennings, no Any Mulumba, Josh Boyd on the field...all I know is that the result was 14 points allowed and a win, and I like it.

Packers' coordinators boast sunnier disposition after outlasting Atlanta - FOX Sports Wisconsin
There are some great points in here from each coordinator. The one from Dom Capers talking about Jarrett Bush being the emergency inside linebacker helps show the value that the team places on Bush and his ability to help out in unexpected situations.

Here are some recaps from around the league. The writer seems to forget though that we play the Bears in week 17.

NFL breaks touchdown record with 90 on Sunday - SBNation.com
That's pretty ridiculous, considering the weather conditions in many of the games on Sunday.

Road to MetLife Stadium: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow - Big Blue View
I can't be more supportive of a giant snowstorm for the Super Bowl this year. Make it happen, Mother Nature!
