Well, Finley's drops clearly aren't his fault...they are Rodgers' fault...

...Finley returned to the chemistry issue in an interview Wednesday with Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com and placed the burden on his quarterback. “Not good enough at all,” Finley said about his chemistry with Rodgers. “Something to be worked on, and try to work on it as much as I can, try to talk to him as much as I can, but like I said it takes two people.


I was a Finley believer and kept waiting for the "development" to come. The only development I am seeing is his use of excuses of his suckage.

Yerko got taken ... hook ... line ... SINKER!!

Here's the link to the actual source, Jason Wilde, not another Packers fan site! :P
Source - read this instead of Brian's article which is filled with unreasonable naive bias. I said it Brian-shock-value-for-page-clicks! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Well, IMO Finley doesn't come off good in the original article either.

IMO Rodgers hones in Finley too often, just like he did back in 2010 before Finley's injury then.

At this point, I'd almost rather have Bubba-I-never-break-a-tackle Franks.

Scratch that. Delete the "almost."

And I definitely would rather have The Toolbox.

I think everyone is too hard on Finley. I mean you want Bubba Franks over him? That's crazy if you ask me. He's 3rd on the team in receptions and Nelson is droping as much balls as him. I gotta piggy back what Aaron Rodgers said. Jermicheal has to get confidence early in the game. Honestly the guy drops one ball and he needs to shoved out of Green Bay? Cmon now.. See how he progresses through the season and see if he gets more consistant before considering an replacement. This type of talent and body type doesn't come around often. He just needs to play ball. I've seen some good flashes in the Seahawks and Saints game and I'll say the guy is underrated at blocking. I hope he gets healthy and hits a good stride. We need him.

Dude has this season to prove himself. Actually he's got that 2 year contract.

But in fairness, he's dropped more than one ball.

Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley have dropped five passes each. Where's the Jordy Nelson bashing?

Jordy doesn't run off at the mouth as much as Jerkmichael.

I'm not saying he doesn't say some unnecessary things. I'm just saying people jump to conclusions and if they took the time to listen to his entire interviews and the questions asked ... most would have a different opinion.

I think his little shark fin after a first down is absurd, however, when you catch one out 8 passes I suppose one does have to celebrate.
