I love that line.... "the tight end's quote" Nope not Finely, not Jermichael, but the tight end

Reminds me of Parcells calling Terrell Owens "the player"

What are you even talking about?


That's not my opinion, let's make that clear first, nor was it ever.

I recall him saying something in training camp about Brett, and it offended alot of Packer fans who labelled him as self-centered and what not really fast.

Now these comments are a bit different obviously, but it does seem to go the same way. Condemming him on one interview.

EDIT : Typo's


Oh, the "get on board or keep your mouths shut" comment. I think most fans took that for what it was: a dumb comment by a guy who was getting a little frustrated with the situation. Some fans even liked the comment. It didn't have too much of a negative effect on Rodgers, because he had already established himself as a guy who had done and said all the right things over the past couple years. And he immediately clarified afterwards that he loves the fans and did not mean to insult them.


And you truly believe what the media says all the time? As we have come to learn sometimes the media blows things up on purpose ( this is about rodgers) Call pr and ask, might give you a whole new out look on shut up and get on board..
but yeah lets only believe the medai when it suits are arguments


I'm not sure what you're getting at here. Rodgers said it and the media reported it. That's their job. I don't remember anybody blowing it out of proportion. It was a very minor story that was quickly lost in all of the Brett Favre hoopla, as it deserved to be.

I think the veteran players should take him aside and let him know you don't talk that way about your QB. Even if you feel that way, you shut up and man up.

Longtimefan and Cheesey got it Mr. McCarthy should have a nice little "father/son" talk with Mr. Finley and the player should reinforce it. Shut up and make the play. His remarks remind me of that commercial a couple of years ago where the player blames the team for not recovering his fumble.

LOL.. I am thinking he might be doing an extra wind sprint for every letter in his comments today..

OT.. in spring ball as a kid, we had this coach that tallied your mistakes from practice and the previous season.. as we had to do one towel drill for each mistake... A towel drill consisted of running while pushing a rolled up towel on the hallways.. from one end of the school to the other..

Those were killers on the quads and shoulders.. opening day was "Contemplation Day" as he called it. I hated it with a passion.. but you tended not to make the same mistakes again. ;)
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

"Go get your towels, girls!" Drill Instructor. Standing "on line" at attention (Red stripes on both sides of the squad bay). Towel held by two corners at full reach/extension of your arms at shoulder height- between thumbs and forefingers. Do not drop the towel or lower your arms. Try it. And here you thought a towel wasn't heavy... Really quite embarassing, when you dwell on it. An excellent cure for cockiness.

Got a little hint that Mike McCarthy did speak to him and probably used some not so nice words LOL

I'm glad I read this. It makes me feel better about Rodgers character, Philibin and McCarthy equally. Don't let the whiners run the asylum.

A quick update on the latest word:

Quote:
One-sided conversation

McCarthy said he had a conversation with rookie tight end Jermichael Finley, who criticized both Rodgers and the coaches following Sundays loss to the Titans.

The sense was that McCarthy did most of the talking.

Its over with, McCarthy said. He made a mistake.

McCarthy clearly wasnt happy after Finley put the blame on Rodgers for their inability to connect on a fourth-and-1 play against the Titans and then insinuated that the coaches werent using him enough or in the right ways.

Finley refused comment Wednesday but said he would address reporters today.

I asume so, he really has no choice here. I'm guessing he'll come up with alot of words, but it's pretty much gonna be him appolegizing.

Or he's trying out for the Cowboys ofcourse.

I heard Jermichael was reviewing film extensively the past 72 hours and unavailable for comment. When he did emerge from the rear entrance to the Packer's facilities, he was questioned by this reporter as to what he had been doing. Mr. Finley advised that after careful review of the tapes, he may have erred in judgement with respect to comments. When asked if he had reviewed the plays, he said that "NO, I have not." When queried about the content of film he DID review, Mr. Finley informed me that he was reviewing Olympic film, specifically, the individual 100 me-word backstroke, and has been perfecting his technique to the Head coaches' satisfaction.
