Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for January 30, 2014

New, comments

The Packers' fullbacks share the spotlight with the Super Bowl in today's curds.

Matthew Stockman

There are just three more days until the Super Bowl is over and we can all stop hearing about Peyton Manning's legacy and Richard Sherman's mouth (at least for a few months). Personally, I'm much more interested on what happens on the field than off on Sunday, and we have some links for you today about just that.

Of more direct importance to the Packers and their fans are the stories about fullbacks John Kuhn and Ina Liaina today, while the backup quarterback position gets some attention as well.

Enjoy today's curds as your week begins to wind down, and keep it here for our Super Bowl picks and our breakdowns of the outside linebacker position.

This is an interesting point - the Seahawks don't mix up their coverages much. They just win with traditional man-to-man and Cover-3 designs.

"Now it's been said that the Broncos have 'fixed' their run defense...well, I'm calling bullshit on that." Love it.

Here's a look at just why many companies can't use the term "Super Bowl" in advertising for themselves - namely, because the NFL is both forced to resort to legal action and has no problem doing so.
