This, according to former Green Bay Packers tight end Mark Chmura, who has made a questionable decision or two himself.
Chmura has repeatedly called Jermichael Finley a moron on his radio show.
“He is a great player, but he is a moron.” Chmura said Sunday during his gig as a host on ESPN Radio 540. A silly post-game quote sparked the derision, but this isn’t the first time Chmura has questioned Finley’s intelligence.
“Is Jermichael Finley stupid, arrogant and/or both?” Chmura asked beat writer Jason Wilde back in May.
Wilde eventually offered up that he doesn’t think Finley is “a terribly bright person . . . what’s the saying? All the tools and no toolbox?”
Chmura said at the time he “smelled a pending disaster” brewing when it comes to Finley and continued to ask if he was a moron.
“First thing I’d do, I’d say Shut your mouth. Shut up. Shut up! You’re dumb,” Chmura said. “You’re a heck of a player but . . . be quiet!”
Certainly Finley has said some stupid things in his day. I remember when, as a rookie, he laid blame on quarterback Aaron Rodgers for mistakes that were clearly his, but he’s been pretty much a model citizen since then.
Sure, he’s been a little brash, particularly in calling out New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, but Finley looks like a guy who can back up his talk.
Chmura, on the other hand…
Everyone deserves a second chance and Chmura was a great player for the Packers, but the last thing most of us remember him for is attending a post-prom party and ending up in a hot tub with some girls who were under 18… and drunk. Chmura was accused and acquitted of sexual assault, but if you want to talk about moronic decisions, I think that’s a good place to start.
