Packers Daily Links: New Video Boards At Lambeau

New video boards and a sound system will be installed at Lambeau Field by next season. That and more in today's Daily Links...

In time for next season, new video boards and a new sound system are expected to be installed at Lambeau Field. "The new video boards would be built in the north and south end zones, where the current boards are located," writes Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "The new boards will be bigger, brighter and HD-sharp." Who wouldn't be happy with this? When many projects take years to develop, the Packers are moving at the speed of light on this.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is featured in an article by Lori Nickel of the Journal Sentinel about how few interceptions he's thrown. "It's a testament to how well he's thinking out there, how well he's reacting and how well he's throwing out there," backup quarterback Matt Flynn told Nickel. "And the receivers are doing a good job of being friendly to the quarterback and making plays, running the right routes, not cutting their routes off. Aaron is making good decisions and being real accurate." Rodgers hasn't thrown an INT in the past five games.

In other Rodgers news, the quarterback will be named NFC Offensive Player of the Week reports Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Rodgers has also been nominated for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week.

Center Scott Wells is the interviewee in Tuesdays With Wilde, by Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin. It's heartwarming to read how Wells is trying to teach his children about Christmas. "We’re trying to incorporate them into some of the charity work we do to help them understand that everybody’s not like this," said Wells. "We do the adopt-a-family, and last year I did the bell-ringing for the Salvation Army and I had Jackson go with me to do that. We were at the mall, and it was fun. He had a good time, running around asking people to put money in the kettle. He probably got more donations than I did. He has a good heart, for sure, and we’re just trying to get that through to them that not everybody gets toys for Christmas and that’s not what Christmas is all about." As usual the rest of the article attempts to learn more about the personal life of the subject.

The Packers are showing an inability to score on long drives, according to Adam Czech of AllGreenBayPackers.com. "The Packers have scored just three touchdowns in their last 22 drives of nine plays or more," writes Czech. "Two of those touchdowns came late in the fourth quarter to tie the game (against the Dolphins and Falcons). For the season, the Packers are 6 for 26 on drives of nine plays or more." Interesting.

Former Green Bay Packer Al Harris has been placed on injured reserve. "When I asked Al Harris’ agent, Jack Bechta, about Harris’ injury, he responded over Twitter that the hamstring injury was not on the same leg that shelved Harris last season and added that the injury was not too severe," writes Max Ginsberg of Purple Pants Green Jersey. It's impossible to predict injuries and how Harris may play in the future, but the organization's decision to release Harris is looking like the correct one.

The last time there was an article highlighting Rodgers' lack of turnovers (fumbles) he promptly fumbled the ball into the goal line. Suffice it to say that I hate these types of articles!

Also yestarday, Vonnie Holliday was on Scott Van Pelt Radio yestarday. When asked where his favorite place to play was (played in GB, KC, MIA, DEN, WASH), Vonnie said Green Bay hands down. He had some very flattering words for titletown that any packer fan would really appreicate. He said he appreciated GB when he played here, but not until he got older and wiser that he realized how special it was. He said his family still requests tickets to packer games, saying "We want to go back there." I still think it would have been a good idea to nab him last year. Low risk, low reward and he loves the place.

Probably even more important ...... Vonnie has only missed 4 games in the last 6 seasons (inclu. 2010) ,,,,, Who would you rather have coming in off the bench? ..... Wynn or Holliday.

JSOnline is really tempting fate... Right after they post articles about the Rodgers not fumbling and the reduction in penalties, the Atlanta game happens.

Here's hoping this latest article on interceptions isn't a jinx.
