Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for August 21, 2013

Jamie Squire

Today's Packers link dump reminds you that there's a place for the fullback in today's NFL, that players get over controversial plays easier than fans, and that having "Football 101 for Women" events is just dumb.

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone! Today we'll start previewing Friday's preseason game between our Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks, but first it's time to take a little spin around the internet looking for dirt on the Green and Gold.

It appears that video game makers have a sense of humor about their past mistakes (or the past mistakes of their predecessors). Yes, Brian Finneran circa Madden 2004 is second starting wideout on the All-Time Madden team

Do not attempt to help women enjoy football - SBNation.com
"Hi. Don't ever try to write a football article explaining football to women. If they're football fans, they know about football. They watch it, too." Brilliantly put as always, Spencer Hall.
