As week eight approaches, week twelve is also in sight, and with it comes the Green Bay Packers' contest with the Chicago Bears that evening. One of the most exciting facets of that game, in addition to the opponent and Brett Favre's induction ceremony at halftime, is the possibility that all three legendary Packers quarterbacks will be able to take the field simultaneously.

Of course, health issues for Hall of Famer Bart Starr have put his ability to make the trip very much in question over the last several months. Thankfully, there is news from his family that they are encouraged by his recent progress.

Check out the news on Starr and much more in today's cheese curds.
