If you think that the pain of Sunday's loss might have worn off by Monday afternoon, dream on. The Packers were back in Green Bay and talked to the media for the final time this year as they cleaned up their equipment. The themes, by and large, were pain, anger, frustration, and massive disappointment, as you might expect.

Today's cheese curds cover some of those comments, but also include a takedown of overly conservative coaching that was a contributing factor to the loss.

Normally I'd say "enjoy," but today I'll just say click around and be informed.

Guard Josh Sitton says "This team, I don’t think we can be this good for a while. It’s going to be tough, anyway." Still, there's a good chance that the Packers will end up with over $30 million in salary cap space after making a few moves, and they should be able to bring back several key players who are free agents-to-be.
