We just play more unified without him in the line up. That is my stance. I don't know what it is, but when he's out, we seem to come together. I think when Quarless comes back there is little need to keep him if we can get a great trade done. I like the guy, but I don't think he fits in with this locker room very well. I think there is a disconnect.

Not worth the 4.7 bonus he's due this offseason.

Quote:
"First off, for Jermichael even to play in the game I think says a lot about him," McCarthy said. "I know the training staff didn’t think he was going to be able to play after his exam Sunday and even Monday morning (prior to the Houston game).

"For what he did between Monday and Friday to get on the field and show he could do it is a huge credit to Jermichael."


I think it's pretty significant that MM's standing behind Finley like this. Says alot about how he feels about him.

Every day at practice, I watch Fontenot fire one ball after another to Finley during ST segments. Amazing he struggles in games.

Mike does not deal with his players in the media. He may well have talked to Jer Mike in private.

Is it just me, or has Finley slowed down a LOT? Before his injury, I remember him streaking down the field... Not as fast as Jennings or Cobb, but definitely with great speed for a TE. Now, it seems like he's lumbering around out there and not getting any separation.

He could probably still run faster than Bubba Franks. Maybe. Think

At this point, Bubba Franks had the ability to get more YAC than Finley does.

Finley won't be a Packer in 2013 unless he takes a pay cut. Uncle Ted Thompson likes to get his $$$ out of a player.

I can't defend this guy anymore he averages 2 catches and 1 drop a game and insult to injury.....he's playing injured
I feel bad for him. I really thought he could be something special after that 09' playoff game.. maybe he can be.. who knows.. i'm pulling for him either way.

Yeah, don't get me wrong. Anyone who wears a Packers uniform I'll be rooting for. I just don't see him being a Packer in 2013 unless he takes a pay cut.

I'll admit, that game in AZ may have blinded me with optimism and upside,

now, i'm done waiting, the season is halfway over and he hasn't done shit.

I wouldnt be upset at all if we cut his ass tomorrow because what little production he brings is easily replacated or even outdone by much cheaper and less annoying players.

True that. DJ Williams showed today he can drop the ball just as ugly as Jmike. For a lot less money.

Finley just doesn't have it anymore. I don't know if it's due to the knee injury or if he just lost the fire inside.

He's on his way out imo.

Because the defenders were so shocked that he actually caught the ball that they stopped in awe for a second or two, giving Bubba a chance to run.

I've heard people complaining about the performance of just about everyone... The line as a whole, Rodgers, Crosby, Masthay, Finley, DJ Williams, Driver, you name it. I think we're all damned spoiled.
