Happy hump day, everybody. Only four more days until the Packers are back on the field at Lambeau. But more importantly, it's only a few hours until they take the practice field and we see which of the injured Packers are back at practice. (We're all crossing our fingers that Clay Matthews is out there.) On to the links!

Packers receivers happy to share the wealth - JSOnline
Of course Randall Cobb would be the guy who knows which Packer was the last to catch 100 passes...Cobb's the one who has the most realistic shot at being the next.

Turnover battle is one worth winning for Packers - JSOnline
I'd be curious to see overall NFL winning percentages at different turnover differentials. I bet it would be relatively close to the Packers' records under McCarthy.

Packers' perspective on the early bye week - ESPN
Basically, the veterans think it sucks, and the rookies don't mind.

Sneaky, sneaky? Not so much - ESPN Wisconsin
This is an interesting look at when and why the Packers started getting away from using the QB sneak in short-yardage situations.

Packers OLBs Not Named Clay Matthews Offering Virtually No Pass Rush | Cheesehead TV
Kevin and I discussed this on the podcast last night, and think that Clay Matthews' availability will be the deciding factor in Sunday's game.

Ravens acquire OT Eugene Monroe in trade with Jaguars -
Interesting...if the Jaguars are having a fire sale, perhaps we could get Paul Posluszny for a 5th-round pick?

Fumblr, Week 4: Shut up, Cris Collinsworth -
Cris Collinsworth is a moron, J.J. Watt is a bloody mess, and Eli Manning is Eli Manning. Enjoy!
