Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for October 15, 2013

We look ahead to Sunday's game and hope that young Packers will step up in the place of injured veterans.

Well, great. Randall Cobb is out 4-8 weeks. Nick Perry is out at least one. James Jones might play on Sunday, but he might not. What a wonderful way to start your week as a Packers fan. Ugh.

Anyway, the team needs to move on without the injured players, and we fans do as well. Let's start doing that by identifying who will be playing in their places, and today's curds discuss that at length. Hopefully Tuesday will see less bad news than Monday did!

Here's an interesting take. I agree up to a point - the start of the playoffs. Then it gets dicey.

I disagree with the Defender of the Week. A.J. Hawk should have been recognized.
