Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Have you ever sat on the tarmac for two hours, then been told to get off the plane, then been made to sit in the airport for 12 hours waiting for the next available flight? Happened to me. It was super happy fun times. While I was dealing with that fiasco, the Packers got down to 75 players by making a couple of cuts and putting a bunch of players on IR. Here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
