Question what's the price...

I'm fine either way depending on the price.

Finley has great potential, but just plays good to very good level.

I don't want to play for his great potential if he's only bring good to very good level play.


Either way I hope they draft a new TE, not impressed with the guys after Quarless and a couple years from now that TE hopefully be ready (if not sooner).

To be honest, no. I think, on his day, Finley is an absolute monster but there are too many reasons why.

1) Salary expectations - I would be very surprised if him and Ted are on the same page value wise, even on a one year deal like Fatass.
2) Hands - I would very much like someone very sure handed, less athleticism or not.
3) Neck Injury - Scared the shit out of me when it happened, and I wouldn't want to see him get hurt again, medical clearance be damned.

Only sign him to an incentive laden deal for this season, put him on the PUP list until game 9 and let him rehab that neck. He more than likely is not ready to play yet.

Any injured player has the right to come back and prove himself. It isn't like Finley is a poor man, he's made good coin the last few seasons. Both parties should get some insurance on any contract. And after Finley proves he's healthy, pay him top five TE money!

Assuming Jermichael Finley is at no more risk than prior to the injury, ink him for sure.

Put me down as a "no".

Finley has been too inconsistent. He only shaped up performance-wise and attitude-wise in his contract season.

Getting him back now, in addition to probably costing WAY too much (anything more than Quarless gets would be WAY too much), would stunt the progress of Quarless, Bostick, and maybe Stoneburner.

Almost certain now that The Packers will soon sign Finley.

For some reason Ted Thompson just loves to ruffle Texas' feathers.

[wasntme]

When/if Finley is cleared, he is still the most talented TE on the roster.

Quarless will be his solid self, another year away from the injury, his blocking is only going to get better as his knee gets stronger.

Bostick and Stoneburner can only benefit by getting in another year working on Special teams and not being forced into the starting lineup.

Give these guys time to develope if possible.

Ryan Taylor still around, Special teams ace,(need those ST aces)!!

That would be 5 TE's.

The norm as of lately,

Bringing Finley back would maybe change draft strategy.

Ted might look for a project TE to stash on the PS.

No Finley, he is probably looking for a TE in 2nd or 3rd rnd, a guy who could maybe play if forced due to injuries.

Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
