If the Packers could sign Jermichael Finley to an incentive based contract, I'd be all for Finley's return. However, Finley wants to cash in and I believe someone will pay him, IF he is medically cleared.

Imagine everything Andrew Quarless has been through. A gruesome leg injury that robbed him of the entire 2012 season.


He's trying to replace Finley as the starting TE and I think most would agree he's a better run blocker than Finley although he doesn't have as sure of hands as Finley nor the speed.

Quarless has really came on strong the last six games of the season with drive extending catches.

For the season, Quarless has 24 of his 32 receptions and his only 2 TD's when the Packers were trailing. 3 when winning, 5 when tied. That says the Packers trust him to help them move the chains.

Packers will be fine at TE with Quarless and Brandon Bostick in 2014.

With the reemergence of a real running game and depth at WR I am ok with a TE who is more proficient at blocking.

I know this thread is about Quarless, but beside the final touchdown to Cobb, that threading the needle pass to Quarless was probably the most impressive play I have seen Aaron Rodger's make in his career so far.

Quarless is starting to look better. They are using him more vertically rather than the 5 yard peelouts. He seems to have gotten the confidence in his legs again. And he is catching the ball. I think he got screwed in that catch reversal.

I am comfortable without Finley going forward.

We are a better team with Quarless at TE than we were with Finley. Quarless is not a prima dona. He simply works hard and gets the job done. I also think he has as good of hands as Finley. Maybe better. Andrew Quarless is more of a "team" player than a "me" player.

I'll take Quarless any day.

There is no way Finley is taking a team friendly contract. Some times you have to let a guy go. I'm fine with Quarless and Bostick next year. But I really hate thinking about Finley tearing up the league in another uniform.

I guess I'm the only one who didn't mind Finley's outspokenness. Pity we never got to see the total package out of him.

I got so I could tolerate it. When he was a rookie and sitting on the bench I found it necessary. By the end of his contract I just shrugged.

While I agree that we will be fine as an offense with Quarless and Bostick, I hate to think about the day that Finley comes back to play against Green Bay. Our defense struggles covering good tight ends over the middle, and Finley is a big, fast, athletic TE that would hurt us. He's really one of my favorite players because of his passion for the game. This is a tough situation to be in, and I trust whatever Ted Thompson decides to do.

I can't really argue with that. That pass to Quarless was huge - I thought for sure it was either a pick or incomplete when he released it.

Lot of gut checks in this game, and those 2 catches were nothing short of epic. As much as I like Finley, we can survive without him if needed.

I don't think that was an impressive play by Rodgers. That ball should have been picked. We were lucky it just deflected off the defender a little bit and that Quarless was still able to bring it in.

I don't think Quarless is special but I think he can be a very important role player. He has played FB, H-back and TE blocking... and with his catching improving he's doing nice at TE as well. I really want him resigned (though not over pay for him).


But also think they should draft another TE with upside.


Also I think Quarless is faster than Finley (track wise), but Quarless isn't natural route runner where it seems to come very natural to Finley and Finley naturally does a lot of the little things correct where Quarless didn't but he's getting better at them. Football wise Finley might be faster, but Quarless has the potential.


One play I have missed and kind of hope to make see Mike McCarthy surprise a team in the playoffs with is the TE screen. Quarless has looked good at it in the past, and since Mike McCarthy has not used it in a while it might surprise in lead to a big play. (of course screen to Cobb might be better).

I think Quarless is our answer, his hands to me seem to be as good if not better than Finleys. He blocks better than Finley which with our line helps alot. Remember they line him up in the backfield to help protect at times which could lead to some kind of pass to him out of it.

The main reason I would worry about Finley is because their is only 1 football on the field and we have how many receiving threats? If we get Jones back we would have Nelson, Cobb, Jones and Boykin, Lacy coming out of the backfield. So Quarless would be a nice little plus without spending the huge money.
