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.

uffda udfa (59m) : It's just fine.
musccy (1h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (1h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (2h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (3h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (3h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (3h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (7h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (7h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (7h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (7h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (9h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (9h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (9h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (10h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (10h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (11h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (12h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (12h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (12h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (12h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (12h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (12h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (12h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (18h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
