Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for September 18, 2015

New, comments

Sunday's tilt with Seattle will feature some players in new positions on both defenses.

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks kick off their week two matchup this Sunday night, and there is a ton of uncertainty about who will line up where in that game. For the Packers, Bryan Bulaga's knee injury is making him doubtful (unofficially, of course) for Sunday; we should have more news on him today in the team's injury report.

For the Seahawks, one of the surprising unknowns is actually Richard Sherman. As you'll see in today's curds, Sherman has been lining up in a variety of different places this season, a major change from the strategy employed by Seattle in the past.

Check out those issues and more in today's curds below.

Clay Matthews will have radio receiver in his helmet against Seahawks | JSOnline
This will be a first for Clay, and though Dom Capers didn't say whether he or Nate Palmer would be the "primary" player to make the calls, it's still a step up for Matthews in responsibility.

Perhaps it's the thinness of the Seahawks' secondary so far this year, but Sherman moved around far more in week one than he traditionally has in the past. If he were to cover Cobb out of the slot, that would be a first in a Packers-Seahawks matchup.

No guarantee Morgan Burnett's return will fix Green Bay Packers' run D - Green Bay Packers Blog - ESPN
Sure, it's not a guarantee, but there's still a far better chance that the Packers can contain the edge with Burnett on the field than without him.

Lang has good taste. When asked whether he prefers Miller Lite or Bud Light, his response was simple: "Spotted Cow."

Needing his 'A' game | ESPN Wisconsin
Apparently Sam Shields did not think he played a poor game against the Bears, and he did have his moments, but by and large the verdict was negative thanks to some untimely penalties and missed tackles. He'll need a better level of play moving forward.
