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! [grin1] [grin1] [grin1]

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.

uffda udfa (2h) : It's just fine.
musccy (3h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (3h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (4h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (5h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (5h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (5h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (9h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (9h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (9h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (9h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (11h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (11h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (11h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (12h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (12h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (13h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (14h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (14h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (14h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (14h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (14h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (14h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
