Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for September 12, 2013

Thearon W. Henderson

The Packer receivers (and a tight end) take center stage in today's link roundup.

Welcome to Thursday, everyone! It's the start of week two with the Patriots and Jets playing tonight, but before that we'll have our NFL picks and some more analysis and preview of the Packers-Redskins game on Sunday afternoon. The Packers' receiving options are a focus in today's curds - make sure to check out the breakdown of Jordy Nelson's catch below. Jordy's awesome.

Finley talks about his sore big toe | Packersnews
Well this sounds like a little better news than just hearing that he didn't practice on Wednesday. Hopefully he will indeed be ready to go on Sunday as he expects.

Holmgren among 16 first-time Hall of Fame candidates | Packersnews
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what Holmgren did for the Packers in the 90's, but I think Ron Wolf or Kevin Greene deserve to be in the Hall before Holmgren.

James Jones isn't complaining over lack of receptions | Packersnews
Let's hold our horses and not jump to conclusions - after all, we don't know if his sister has started ranting on Twitter about it yet.

Let's hope Morgan Burnett will be back and we won't need Banjo out there on defense.

You know it was a rather rough week for rookies when Geno gets the "rookie of the week" award.

Breaking Madden: Peyton Manning and his offensive line of 160-pound twig-people - SBNation.com
For over a decade, Peyton Manning has been a Madden god. Jon Bois destroys him with 5-foot, 160-pound linemen. I'm disappointed that I didn't get picked to play left tackle.
