Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for April 9, 2014

Pray for good health this year, Packers fans, as I am doing for Casey Hayward and the rest of the team.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers are in the news around the league today, as one of the games on their schedule has had some details leaked out to the media. Let's just say that it's not exactly a premier game. In addition, Kony Ealy is the subject of a pair of today's curds, as two different analysts break down his game in very different ways.

Also, we have a recently-fired NFL GM saying the Packers need to draft an offensive tackle early this year. Sorry, but I'm not buying it. Keep Calm and Trust Ted.

Former Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik apparently doesn't believe that David Bakhtiari will be the long-term starter at left tackle. I will reiterate that Dominik is a former NFL GM, though.
