Well, that was nice. After two preseason games that left a sour taste in everyone's mouth, the Green Bay Packers looked much better on Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. It still wasn't perfect, but when is preseason ever perfect? Aaron Rodgers looked better, the first team defense looked better, and there were positives from the second team defense. That second team offense, though? Ugh. We'll talk more about that later. For now, here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
