Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for October 8, 2014

New, comments

As usual, it's mostly about Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay today. Granted, that's usually the case the day after his weekly radio show on ESPN Wisconsin, but his comments are worthy of some dissection this morning. Among the topics he discussed yesterday were the play of a rookie receiver and his distaste for interceptions, both of which are covered in today's cheese curds below.

Meanwhile, Morgan Burnett is bouncing back nicely from his rough 2012 and has started the season looking like an impact player against the run. We've got a look at a few of his big plays from last Thursday's win.

Talking about a different topic, Rodgers hates throwing picks, and I mean HATES it. Apparently one rough year in eighth grade stuck with him for the rest of his life, and now he's at nearly a 4-to-1- touchdown-to-pick ratio.
