With the offseason upon us, we find ourselves looking both backwards into the relatively recent past and forwards to this summer in today's cheese curds. In a few months, two Packers legends will be going into Halls of Fame within a few weeks of each other, and those two men are inextricably linked to each other.
Of course, I am referring to Ron Wolf, architect of the 1990s Packers, and the quarterback he so desperately wanted, Brett Favre. While one enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, the other will be inducted into the Packers Hall.
Today's curds feature a look at different facets of the two, as well as some looks back at recent weeks in the 2014 season.
