Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers news and links for May 17, 2013

Daily Green Bay Packers links, today on Eddie Lacy, Nate Palmer and Randall Cobb.

USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday, ladies and gentlemen. If you haven't seen it, we explained why the site's been slow lately and when it's going to be completely fixed. Things should work a bit better today than they did yesterday, and everything should be completely back by the end of the weekend.

As far as this post goes, it's getting harder and harder to do. This isn't the true NFL deadzone, but it's close. The MSM outlets are taking it easy right now, and for good reason. They absolutely kill themselves July-April every year.

Remember when Dez got "over-hyped" going into camp and delivered in camp and the regular season? I have the same feeling about Nate Palmer.

Eddie Lacy on Rushing for 1,000 Yards: "I Really Think I Can" | Cheesehead TV

I think he can, but I don't think he will. The Packers are going to have to cut at least one competent running back this year. I think they'll average 4 YPC and rack up considerably more rushing yards than they did last season, but I don't expect Lacy to touch the ball enough to get 1,000 yards.

I'm really looking forward to our best offensive playmaker not getting nailed on kick returns.

We're not here because there are huge question marks around our division rivals and our window isn't closing, with Rogers and Matthews having signed long-term deals.
