Happy Tuesday to all you Packers fans out there! We learned something yesterday in the aftermath of the Packers-Redskins game: the NFL has no idea how to consistently apply punishment for illegal hits. As you might expect, Brandon Meriweather of the Redskins, who knocked out Packer running back Eddie Lacy with a concussion before concussing himself trying to do the same thing to James Starks, plays a prominent role in today's cheese curds.

Davon House's play gets noticed - JSOnline
As expected, Tramon Williams shifted to the slot when House came in. House played pretty darn well too, and has come a long way since getting embarrassed by the Cardinals in the preseason.

I don't blame him for being disappointed with the defense's performance late in the game. They'll need to be up to the challenge next week in Cincinnati.

Redskins' safety Brandon Meriweather must have missed NFL's 'safer game' memo - JSOnline
Yeah, Meriweather won't be on the "tough, physical - and legal - hits" video package.

Meriweather will be fined, not suspended, for Lacy hit - ESPN Wisconsin
Dumb. Even dumber because he did it AGAIN a few minutes later.

Dashon Goldson suspended against Patriots for personal fouls - Bucs Nation
Read the statement from NFL VP Merton Hanks. Is he describing Goldson or Meriweather?

Long and short of Rodgers' productivity - Green Bay Packers Blog - ESPN
The Packers' receivers put up "283 yards worth of YAC -- the most by any team since the start of the 2008 season, according to ESPN Stats & Information". Nice.
