I'm surprised if the Packers let him go, especially with him under contract.

Sorry. Just trying to find silver lining here.

he did finish the year strong. the issue becomes money vs production. He stays if Ted feels the are getting their money's worth.

He played through a difficult shoulder injury for a good portion of the middle season.

The issue is whether he played well knowing his future is on the line or if he is finally living up to his talent and will continue even after he signs a new contract.

The jury is still out for me on this one. Seems he played well like this right before his last contract.

I don't know if adios is accurate, but Finley has a major flaw and that is run blocking. Proper run blocking involves technique, but more importantly, attitude. I'm not sure Finley isn't just a mental midget when it comes to this attribute. Would like to see an upgrade to James Campen to see if we can't right this wrong up and down the offensive line.

I'm not one to pile on Finley and he did finish the year strong but one play that bothered me about the game was when Rodgers ran out of the pocket and pointed for Finley to go block for him Finley cut back and try to make a big hit on a 49ers player that was well behind Rodgers instead of going out in front and blocking a player that mattered. It didn't really have much of an impact on the game but I though that was kind of a lame job by Finley.

Is he even a run blocking TE? No. He's a receiving threat, he usually is never on run plays anyways. Crabtree, Williams, and Taylor is. I say keep him. Sad to say Greg might be gone, but we got a lot of great receiver's on this team. And I have no doubt we could find another one, if need be.

So you just telegraph every running play? No, Finley needs to get his hands dirty. He's big enough and there is no reason he can't run block.

What do you need a run-blocking TE for?

Just pick up another 7th round OT and play him as a TE on the 13 running plays each game.
