Packers safety Nick Collins had more than 140 characters worth of information on his possible comeback Wednesday, and how it could impact others in the same position. He followed up on a series of tweets by telling Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com that he was ready and willing to risk it to play again, after being...

With what's being reported about Finley loving the idea of playing for Seahawks or Giants... I doubt he's back. He's thinking grass is greener already.

I really don't give a damn if Finley is back, especially for the money he is apparently expecting. Collins, however, assuming he could still be anything like he was before, would really be a welcome addition.

That brings us to the question: Is Nick Collins a blatant liar - saying that a lot of other teams' doctors cleared him, and the Packers doctor was basically the only one to reject him? OR Is the Packers doctor - and by proxy his bosses - Thompson and Murphy acting just plain stubbornly irrational? There really wouldn't seem to be any other possibilities, considering the certainty in Collins words.

McKenzie has always been uber-conservative like that.

He doesn't ever want to be the guy who let a player go back out on the field, who subsequently got paralyzed. Most other doctors probably don't want that happen to them, after a player has already been rejected by some other team's doctor.

What happened to Collins was a complete waste. imo.

Great start. Once Jermichael is signed, all we gotta do is figure out who’s going to play TE for the other 8-9 games.


He's been the tease of all teases ever since the end of the '09 season.

So you believe Collins told the truth, and the good doctor is a stubborn ass?

Not to get political, but I really hate when the word "conservative" is used to mean ........ stupid.

Ironic, how the new word for stupid is conservative - with a picture of the Mount Rushmore of stupidity for illustration: Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Eric Cantor, and Paul Ryan.

I would have to say, Collins is misremembering. If his claim that the Packers doctor was the only one that wouldn't clear him, than why was is he not playing anywhere else? The Packers released him, which means he was free to go to any of those other teams and let those doctors clear him to play.

While I am not a doctor nor did I sleep at a Holiday Inn Express, I would apprehensive to bring a player back with a neck injury like that, especially at a position where hitting is so much a part of the job.

No, I believe the surgery was unnecessary.

It also seemed to me at the time that the doctor was less than forthright about the surgery.

Although I also recall hearing that the surgeon who actually operated, cleared him.
