Happy Wednesday, Green Bay Packers fans. Today marks our typical transition from one week to the next, as we wrap up our coverage of the Jets game and look ahead to the Lions next Sunday. Today's curds feature profiles on several individual Packers, including a pair of wideouts not named Jordy Nelson and two critical defensive players who have been getting used to more work in a 4-3 defense.

Oh, and we've also got plenty of foolishness at the bottom of the bag of curds today, including the best use of Super Mario Bros. music in recent memory. Enjoy!
