Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for August 21, 2013

Today's Packers link dump reminds you that there's a place for the fullback in today's NFL, that players get over controversial plays easier than fans, and that having "Football 101 for Women" events is just dumb.

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone! Today we'll start previewing Friday's preseason game between our Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks, but first it's time to take a little spin around the internet looking for dirt on the Green and Gold.

There's always room for John Kuhn with Packers - JSOnline
Interesting...I'm not so sure that I agree.

Notes - James Starks takes plunge in Packers' running-back depth chart - JSOnline

Tavecchio gives Crosby needed kick - ESPN Wisconsin
If Mason Crosby earns the kicking job, and I mean really earns it, will anyone really remember that Tavecchio gave him a run for his money early on in camp?

Point of Veau: Aside from Finley, Packers Tight Ends are a Mess | Cheesehead TV
No disagreement here. We've been waiting for a couple of these guys to break out for a while now, and perhaps their lack of production will pave the way for a Brandon Bostick or Jake Stoneburner to sneak his way onto the 53-man roster this season.

The (virtual) legend of Brian Finneran -
It appears that video game makers have a sense of humor about their past mistakes (or the past mistakes of their predecessors). Yes, Brian Finneran circa Madden 2004 is second starting wideout on the All-Time Madden team

Do not attempt to help women enjoy football -
"Hi. Don't ever try to write a football article explaining football to women. If they're football fans, they know about football. They watch it, too." Brilliantly put as always, Spencer Hall.
