There were a pair of football games this past weekend, each featuring many of the best players at two very different levels of the sport. While six Green Bay Packers players were in Arizona for the Pro Bowl, GM Ted Thompson was busy scouting the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama over the weekend.
In addition to looking back at those two games, today's cheese curds feature the grades and season recap from a few of the media publications that cover the Packers. Take a look around, then come back here later today as we begin our season recaps with the quarterback position.
