Green Bay Packers quarterbacks, both old and new, are at the forefront of today's Cheese Curds. While we have a little more insight into what makes rookie fifth-round pick Brett Hundley tick, we also find out about some great Brett Favre stories from his oldest daughter, who has gone through some tough times herself and emerged as a successful person.

Sprinkled in among those pieces, we also have more player and coach interviews from OTAs, as well as a statistical breakdown of Aaron Rodgers' excellent ability to avoid interceptions.

Enjoy!

Emmanuel Sanders, Randall Cobb top the best No. 2 receivers of the 2015 NFL season - SBNation.com
If you ask me, the tiers should look slightly different, but this is about right. And as for Sanders, yes, he's great...but I don't think I would want any of these other names suiting up for the Packers over Cobb.
