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

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Our congratulations to out to the Packers' Kevin Greene, who was announced as a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Thursday night.

Good morning, Green Bay Packers fans. This is the first Friday before a Packers game since September and the first without the team involved in real football work since July. It sucks, everybody.

That said, the coaching carousel is in full swing and the off-season approaches, so it means more player evaluations and pieces on the business side of the NFL. Also, Hall of Fame finalists were announced yesterday, and one of the 15 people has a major Packers connection.

Enjoy!
