Despite what Ted said in that quote, I think how he drafted the last 2 years is much more telling about his feelings towards Finley. Whether it be due to injuries, his mouth, or the combo platter, to me it's clear that Ted has reservations about resigning Finley.


Good post!

To expand on it, we'll see who is going to get resigned first: Sitton, Raji, Matthews, Finley, Nelson, Rodgers redo. If Finley gets left to last, I think he'll be gone.

For me it has nothing to do with the football field or thinking his talk would affect the outcome at all. As a fan of the team I prefer to have players not be arrogant jerks. As Zero said, I don't mind him saying Packers are looking great, but to single out a person and use their role as a position to say that they aren't worthy enough to talk. I don't agree with belittling people, you can disagree with someone's opinion, but how does him being a backup have anything to do with it? Especially when Finley's stat line looked a lot like a backup last season.



This is such a non-issue. He's being an arrogant jerk..? Trash talk is just part of the game.

And if Finley is healthy, he's going to back up his talk with his production this year.

By the same logic, Ted thinks Clifton runs his mouth a little too much, cause he's spent 2 first round picks on tackles. And he's planning a contingency for Woodson and/or Williams talking their way out of town, cause he's drafting and signing cornerbacks...

Of that group, Finley, Sitton, and Nelson expire after this year. I doubt Rodgers, Raji, or Matthews get new deals since they all have multiple years left on their deals.

He didn't even say anything bad...I like his confidence. I don't understand why he gets called "little TO" every time he is mentioned in a topic.

I also disagree with what he said, but this isn't the best counter. Clifton and Woodson are nearing retirement.

My point was that you draft for depth, not because you think your projected starter talks to much. I think it's more likely that he'd be concerned about Finley's health than his words, but we just don't know either way.

Anybody can claim what ever they want. It is pretty safe because Thompson sure won't let on what he is thinking. So nobody can say you are wrong.

Reading TT's mind is a pretty dodgy prospects in the best of circumstances.
