Welcome to Thursday, July 18th, everyone. I feel that it is my duty to remind everyone that the Green Bay Packers will be reporting to training camp exactly seven days from now. If you have any questions about camp, how to attend, or when practices will be, check out our early primer here and know that we'll fill you in on all the details next week before camp starts.

For today, we kick off curds with a pair of stories about past Packers memories - new inductees into the Packers Hall of Fame feature prominently in both. Then it's on to a discussion of the receiving corps.

Faith carried KGB through 9-year career, into Packers Hall of Fame | Press-Gazette
Wes Hodkiewicz takes a great look at the career of the fan favorite and reminds you that his presence made the Jamal Reynolds draft pick hurt less than it should have.

I don't care what 49ers fans might say...Don Beebe wasn't down by contact.

Will "Third-Year Rule" Apply To Cobb? - Packerpedia
This is a great look at the Packer receivers who have taken a big jump from year 2 to year 3 and whether or not we should expect Cobb to take another big step this season. With his complete focus now on offense, I certainly hope so.

Could injuries at wide receiver hamstring the Packers? - Lombardi Ave
The one person that wasn't addressed here is Jermichael Finley. He'll be asked to step up as much as anyone else if one of the big three wide receivers gets banged up.

Packers financials: No '14 salary-cap spike - NFC North Blog - ESPN
If you were counting on a big boost in the salary cap next season, it's time to think again. It will probably get nudged up a tiny bit as it always is, but it seems there won't be any huge jump because of the new TV contracts.

All right, I'll go ahead and say it. Suh, aren't you already used to disappointment?

Enjoy your Thursday!
