Today's curds sadly focus on failures throughout the Packers organization, from the general manager on down to some of the lowest players on the roster.

Today's news about the Green Bay Packers isn't terribly promising. Basically, the theme is things not going as expected or as hoped. Whether that's Aaron Rodgers' shoulder, his backups, the tight ends, whatever, that's the over-arching message today. For once, it would be really nice for something this season to surprise us in a positive way.

Finally, make sure you check out the last link as a reminder that everyone deserves a certain level of respect when they're talking about this team, regardless of any differences.

Tuesdays With Jayme: Playing in the Sandbox | Cheesehead TV
We don't have any women writing for APC, but if we did, I'm confident they would be received just the same as our male writers. I certainly hope I'm not wrong on that. Jayme's piece is definitely worth a read - kudos to her for both taking the high road and standing up for herself.
