Happy Monday, ladies and gentlemen. Things are going to be happening quickly over the next week. The Packers cut down to 75 players this afternoon, play a preseason game on Thursday, then must hack their roster down to 53 players less than 24 hours later. We'll make our guesses at the 53-man roster after the game on Thursday, and I'll be fun to see how close (or embarrassingly far off) we are. With that, here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
