Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News And Links For August 23, 2012

Happy football day, ladies and gentlemen. The Green Bay Packers take on the Cincinnati Bengals in their preseason dress rehearsal tonight. The first two preseason games were rough, but nothing to be concerned about. If the Packers look poor in the third preseason game with all of Marshall Newhouse, Greg Jennings, Jermichael Finley and Charles Woodson back on the field, it'll be time to freak out. Most of today's daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links is obviously about the game ahead.
