He could probably still run faster than Bubba Franks. Maybe. :-k


Ah, ol' stonehands. Finley's gunning for that title too, but he doesn't have an awesome name like "Bubba".

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 guess since Bush insn't getting enough playing time and Hawk is playing good, somebody has to be the target of hate.

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.

But when they are criticized, it has been justified. Finley has been sitting at 4 drops since what, week 3?

He's also has a measly 13 catches for 132 yards and 0 tds in the five games since week 3 as well, which is reason enough to be critical of him. Most of which have been games without Jennings so there should have been plenty of opportunities for him to put up some big numbers.

Not having Jennnigs, does not give Finley more opportunities, it makes it possible for the defense to cover him tighter because of not having to worry about Jennings. Finley is going to get the same amount of snaps. Jennings out gives another WR more oppourtunity.

He can't throw the ball to himself.

I'll go back through the game later this week, and pay attention to Finley to see the coverage on him, and if he is just being overlooked, or if it is coverage or just not getting open more that is causing fewer targets. It could be that Rodgers has been told that he was trying to force it to Finley to much.

Why wouldn't Rodgers overlook Finley? I wouldn't have a lot of faith in the guy to make a tough catch over the middle at this point. I would personally trust Jones and Cobb more. When a player fails to make many clutch plays, it's only natural for them to drop down the progression a little bit.

Could it be, that Finley was having drops because he was getting targeted more, now that the targets have shifted, Cobb has as many drops as Finley.
