This week at Packers Talk Radio Network:

Ryan Braun’s return to Miller Park following a 65 game suspension last season caused John to say that there is a double standard in how athletes are viewed, and how Packers fans view Brett Favre is proof of this.

John also had a few words to say about the disaster known as Quarterback Bracketology at What odds do you think a site like would have given that Rich Gannnon would beat out Brett Favre?

The entire PTRN staff came together to produce a three round mock draft, with commentary about the Packers selections.

Four was the magic number this week, as Ian gave us 4 players who could play a big role in the Packers offense next season…

Matt gave us the names of four players who could develop in 2014

And Ian wrote about 4 defensive players who may play a big role for the Packers in 2014.

Matt says this season is a make or break season for Dom Capers. I wonder what everyone else thinks of this idea.

We took a look at recently re-signed FB John Kuuuuuuuuhn in a player profile.

And Cheesehead Radio returned to the airwaves with a jam packed show featuring an interview with Packers S Sean Richardson. A must listen to episode.

Don’t forget to stop by and check out this week’s edition of Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived. It is a must read every Sunday during the far too long NFL off season.
