Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for November 11, 2013

The Packers will look to recover from another injury-ridden game on Sunday. We try to make sense of it all in today's curds.

Another game, another quarterback lost to injury, and another game where the defense lets Packers fans down by giving up big chunks of yardage and looking sloppy in coverage. Just think, people - we were one Scott Tolzien twisted ankle away from having John Kuhn play quarterback yesterday. That's how far we've come in the past seven days.

To help us wallow in our self-pity for our Monday hangover, we have links about yesterday's game from various sources. Get ready to hate the last two games even more than you already do.

Mike McCarthy steamed as Packers' soft defense folds again in loss to Eagles - JSOnline
Stop me if you've heard this before. The starting QB gets hurt early in the game, a backup comes in and the offense moves the ball, but the defense's inability to get off the field shuts down any hope of a comeback. It's deja vu, you guys.

Josh Sitton on injuries: What's in the water? - JSOnline
It turned out to be a godsend that Lang was able to come back so quickly from his concussion, as he was pressed into emergency duty at center in the second half.

Hits just keep coming as injuries knock out 6 more Packers - JSOnline
I don't want to hear another fan of another NFL team complain about injuries derailing their season. Ever.

Thumbs up to Bostick, down to Crosby | Packersnews
Good for Bostick - at least one writer around here has been hoping he would break out at some point, and both he and Jarrett Boykin showed good chemistry with Scott Tolzien.

Matthews dislikes club scene - ESPN Wisconsin
It seemed pretty clear that Matthews wasn't himself out there with a club on his right hand. Holding or not (and there were several holds on Clay that were missed in my opinion), he needs to be able to disengage from blockers better in the coming weeks.

Tolzien makes most of opportunity - ESPN Wisconsin
Really, Scotty did more than one could expect from a player in his situation. He showed command of the offense, looked to have more zip on his throws than I recall from his Badger days, and in general wasn't rattled by the moment. I like that McCarthy already committed to him as the starter for next week.

"Chips Report" from Week 10 Packers Loss vs. Eagles | Cheesehead TV
Datone Jones' play in this game should not be ignored. After a slow start, he suddenly has three sacks in two games, and has been a force to be reckoned with.

NFL takeaways: Panthers become legitimate, while Denver has a scare -
Here's the week that was in the NFL, which confused the hell out of me. At least we know the biggest reasons for our team's meltdown over the past two weeks - what happened in Indianapolis this week?
