As the Green Bay Packers approach the final game of their 2013 preseason schedule, we're starting to guess at who's going to be with the team after Saturday's cut-down deadline. Rest assured, we'll have plenty more on that as the next few days go along, but until then, it's time to take a spin around the internet, where we find that Aaron Rodgers is the true American quarterback.

Bob McGinn - For Packers, more tackling in camp could be best medicine for rash of injuries - JSOnline
Yes, the Packers had a lot of players sitting out practices and preseason games...but then again, four of them were injured before training camp, several were fighting off other injuries suffered before camp, and the starting left tackle blew out an ACL. I see where McGinn is coming from, but I'm still not 100% on board based on the numbers alone.
