Happy Friday, ladies and gentlemen. It's the Friday before a playoff game and it's the middle of January, so seriously, who's going to miss you if you duck out for a really long lunch? I recommend having a couple of adult beverages on your break, because you deserve it.

In today's edition of Cheese Curds, we have stories about our wide receivers, including Donald Driver, as well as Colin Kaepernick and things that you should keep an eye out for during the game.

49ers' switch to Kaepernick a gutsy move, but the right one | Green Bay Press-Gazette

Long term? Absolutely. I'm pretty sure that Colin Kaepernick will be a Pro Bowl-caliber QB shortly. He's awesome. But time will tell if it cost them a shot at a Super Bowl in the short term.

Unfortunately for Donald, I think that would have come in Week 17 if it was going to come at all. I think Mike McCarthy got the assistant coach notification that you get in text-based sports simulation games. "Assistant coach Edgar Bennett believes that Donald Driver is past his peak and can no longer perform at the highest level, but should be allowed to see out the remainder of his contract because he's a good influence on the young players."
