In yesterday’s Cheese Curds, we at APC took a look at the Green Bay Packers’ financial reports, which were released this week. The team reported record revenues, and are in a great position both for the time being and looking ahead into the future.

One of the great things about the Packers being a community-owned organization is that the team returns the support that the community provides. As we wrap up another week and inch ever closer to training camp, today’s curds feature a look at some of the team’s charitable activities and grants.

Meanwhile, we are less than two weeks away from the Packers reporting for camp, which means that we’re getting more and more examinations of the team’s roster. As APC’s breakdown continues today with the offensive line, check out a link in today’s curds which tries to determine just how many roster spots are actually available.

All I can say about this is LOL. Clay sacked Cutler 8.5 times in his career, and even once petitioned the league to change his half-sack (split with Erik Walden) to a full one.

Romo sees no signs that Rodgers is slowing down, despite Rodgers’ recent comments that he’s starting the “back nine” of his career. The former Cowboys QB says he sees Aaron playing another dozen years.
