Your nose is your best friend in this situation -- if it smells at all bad, don't cook it!
I should be okay. 3 day in the refriderator is usually okay, plus the first day it was still mostly frozen. Like Merrill says, give it the sniff test. You can tell right away it it has spoiled.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
Sturdy enough to grill, fry, and turn into ice cream sandwiches, too
