Yes, what you said in the edit.

And for the record, Favre's long ball was underrated. Remember 2007? Favre had more completed long balls than Brady did, and Brady had Randy Moss in Moss's best year ever (including 1998).

You may be right about Favre learning to lay it off later in his career, but my memory sucks. I remember his later years better than his early years.

So I hope Aaron learns to lay off a little.


2007 the Packers lead the league in yards after the catch. Top of my head I can think of a few plays that were about 20 or so yards ... Jennings-slant-Chargers, Jones-curl route?-Broncos, and the overtime pass was a nice over the top pass, another slant against Chiefs ... all in 2007. Favre zipped them and the WR racked up the 'long ball' yards afterwards. Not to discredit Favre here, cuz he had to put the ball in the right place for the WR to make those yards.

2007 was a really great year for Favre, but that doesn't mean he was accurate with the deep ball (as I was mistakenly referring to) throughout his career. Look at the '03 Raiders game... the receivers made him look great that game.

Jermichael Finley would have dropped probably two TD's in that Raiders game!!

James Jones over the last couple years droped balls and they still brought him back last year. Why not give Finley a chance? Obviously Jones is making most of his oppurtunity this year. Who's to say Finley can't rebound in a young 2012 season? No ones lobbying to get JJ out anymore are they?


Problem is Jones doesn't spend so much time yapping.

In fact its typically exactly the opposite. Jones invariably takes the blame.

That's part of the reason some of us get upset at Finley and annoyed/frustrated/ballistic about Finley. Finley hasn't performed on the field OR watched his mouth.

As play2win pointed out, he seems more like Javon Walker 2.0.

My comment, it could be full of crap and I have no stats to back it up, but man it feels that Finley's drops are always drive ending or momentum killing drops.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

Every team has to have a yapper. We as Packers fans are just so full of themselves with the Titletown USA, Packers People bullshit that they forget that aside from the money and the fame, the players are out there having fun.

I like the comic relief. Finley is a charismatic guy. We haven't had that in Green Bay since Favre (though now you can count Clay Matthews as such a character) Is he being the great player he has the potential to be? No, but he's good. The only Tight Ends really playing worth a shit right now are Heath Miller and Brent Celek, and they aren't exactly the phenoms that Gronkowski and Graham are.

What I don't like is the bullshit that our coaches feed our players and having most of them say "Oh, they didn't win. We beat ourselves." That's the kind of garbage I don't like to hear, and I'd rather have Finley showboat.

Finley's Finley. It's nowhere close to what Javon Walker did.

To tell you guys the truth, I was a big believer in Finley when we first drafted him. This kid had a lot of raw talent and is very athletic it's really a shame that he lacks concentration and confidence skills which separates him of being a good TE.

Really sad, when he got injured I really thought he would come back the following year and perform lights out, afterwards coming back from his injury I said to myself he might be out of sync and this year he would pick it up.

Eventually I see him regressed from last year ... Now I'm not saying that he doesn't have the skills / talent to become an Elite NFL TE but I don't think we should keep him after this season unless he improves in the next coming weeks. We've got more important key players waiting to be re-signed " Matthews / Raji / Aaron Rodgers and at his cap and at his level of play is a really big waste of cap space.

Finley was a beast his first season then he had the injury.

For me though he just doesn't seem to have the passion of that first year any more.

I prefer the passion Tom Crabtree has for the game and the Packers.

hardrocker950 (10h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (19h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (20h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (20h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (20h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (20h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
