Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for April 9, 2014

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Pray for good health this year, Packers fans, as I am doing for Casey Hayward and the rest of the team.

The Green Bay Packers are in the news around the league today, as one of the games on their schedule has had some details leaked out to the media. Let's just say that it's not exactly a premier game. In addition, Kony Ealy is the subject of a pair of today's curds, as two different analysts break down his game in very different ways.

Also, we have a recently-fired NFL GM saying the Packers need to draft an offensive tackle early this year. Sorry, but I'm not buying it. Keep Calm and Trust Ted.

Hey football gods: can we please let Casey Hayward go through this year without any hamstring injuries?

Last time, Jordy Nelson became a big bargain for Packers | Packers.com
Indeed, and he won't be anywhere near that kind of a bargain again. Jordy is getting PAID this off-season.

We probably won't know the full NFL schedule for another week or two, but it appears that Green Bay will be playing in Buffalo sometime this season on a Monday Night.

Former Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik apparently doesn't believe that David Bakhtiari will be the long-term starter at left tackle. I will reiterate that Dominik is a former NFL GM, though.

Personally, I still think Ealy will get drafted by a 4-3 team as a defensive end.

More on Ealy - in this case, more is less according to Stephen White.
