"He might be an ass, but he's talented."

And he is young, but "ass" is too kind. "D|ck" is more accurate.
That shttitude is what McTed've been weed killing, trying to.
Wonder if they talked about it in private. "See what the kid Finley said?" "*smirk* Yeah. Think he'd catch more than one before starting in on coaching."

How about the next time it hits your hands you catch it. You cost the Packers 4 points by now making the TD and they had to settle for a FG. In other words you cost the team the game (so did other but that's not the point) you complain about how the ball gets to you and you lose the game for the team?


It's amazing how different fans see things differently. That pass in the end zone did not even look catchable to me. The one on fourth down would have been a very difficult catch if he made it. The problem on both plays was that Finley failed to get open.

But Finley did not "lose the game for the team." A player doesn't lose a game by failing to catch a pass in the second quarter.

His comments were stupid and not the sort of thing I expect to hear from a Packer player, but maybe it's just a case of him being a rookie and being frustrated after a loss. Calling the QB out for a bad throw is especially idiotic. If he wants a good throw he should try getting open. Hopefully he will wise up.

Like said before, he's new to the media and everything. Ofcourse these comments aren't really doing him any good, especially having proven nothing, but let's just see how he goes along.

A couple of weeks ago Rodgers was an egoistic dck if I remember correct.

He really should stop doing this though, especially as a TE. He's not supposed to be a prima-donna like half the WRs in the league. The only TE that can pull that off is Shannon :p

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.

Oh, the "get on board or keep their 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.

What causes some worry about Finley is that, for most of us, this is the first thing that has come out of his pie-hole since joining the Packers. It's all we have to judge him by right now, and it's not a good start. But it will quickly be forgotten if he plays well and doesn't make a habit of saying dumb things.

Finley's a playmaker and will eventually start for the Packers.

He might be an ass, but he's talented. He's a rookie with no experience. Once he gets experience, he'll produce.

But yeah, it's all his fault.


If he is an ass now, what kind of attitude will he have once he is a "regular" on this offense? I dont want a Kellen Winslow on this team. Shut up and play or go home.

McCarthy's thoughts on Finley's sentiments:

Quote:

Finley's gripes find no traction

By Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel

Posted: Nov. 3, 2008

Green Bay - Rookie tight end Jermichael Finley wants a bigger role in the Green Bay Packers' offense, but after Sunday he might be lucky to be active for the next game against Minnesota.

Not only did Finley play poorly against the Tennessee Titans, he mouthed off afterward, complaining that quarterback Aaron Rodgers' throws didn't play to his strength and that the coaches have to better understand his talents and what he can add to the offense.

Suffice it to say, he wasn't hearing an amen from the choir.

"I don't agree with the tight end's quote," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday.

Finley was involved in a fourth-and-1 play on the Packers' second possession in which Rodgers threw a "back-shoulder" pass, for which the tight end had to turn around. The ball bounced off his chest, incomplete.

"We were expecting man in that particular situation," McCarthy said of the coverage. "It's a hot situation for that particular play. Jermichael had a poor release. He was too high, and Aaron was trying to 'back-shoulder' him. It's a play that we practice all of the time. It's a common throw in our offense."

Finley was also involved in a second-quarter play from the Tennessee 5-yard line in which he ran a fade route to the left corner of the end zone. There was a man underneath him and a man over the top, but there was enough room for him and Rodgers to connect for a touchdown.

Finley was backing up to the end line when he made an awkward leap for the pass, deflecting it out of bounds with one hand. The Packers wound up settling for a field goal.

"There's nothing I could have done; it was out of bounds," Finley said after the game. "When I was running, the ball was, like, fading more and more. I just made an effort toward the ball so there's really nothing I could have done with that one."

That wasn't exactly the interpretation of offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

"You've got to get two feet on the ground and go up and jump up and go get the ball," Philbin said. "It isn't that hard of a game. Yeah, I thought he was open. I mean, they had the safety over the top and they walked out a linebacker. It's a pretty good matchup."

As for the throw, Philbin said it was just fine.

"I think so," he said. "I think you have to go make the play. I try to act smart and say there's some special super technique that we had for that but, geez, go get the ball. If you're in the backyard, that's what you would do."

Like a wise man once said:

"Don't let your alligator mouth get you into a situation your hummingbird ass can't get you out of. "

I pretty much chalked this one up to immaturity and/or lack of experience with the media. I suspect that his coaches will be delivering a crash course on STFU this week... I hope he is smarter than was evidenced by those comments.

That was the worse call of the game to let Finley play and Jones sit.


I don't disagree that Finley's comments are of the T.O./"Meshawn" variety, but I disagree with this statement. The Packers used the 3 TE set with success on Sunday. That's something they would not have been able to do with ... erm... only 2 TEs.


Well with Jones and Martin they could of run the big 5. But with Jones on the bench they couldn't run the big 5.

And Finley had two drops and one catch for 6 yards. Of those two drops one was for a TD and one was on 4th down for a 1st down.

I thought he could of got both. No saying they were easy but their not paying him for things to be easy for him. And no he didn't lose the game by himself I over did it there but if he were to makes the catches he dropped the Packers might of won the game.

And he's acting like Owens/MeShawn and he's making more bad plays than good ones.

I don't know who said that quote but I like it. I hope the coaches get on him for those commit. Do you really think Rodgers is going to want to pass to you with commits like that?
