Jermichael Finley Blames Aaron Rodgers for Lack of Chemistry

Jermichael Finley

The issue of chemistry (or a lack thereof) between Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley and quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been brought up before… by Jermichael Finley. Well, not surprisingly, Finley is at it again.

Now, Finley is saying the chemistry between he and Rodgers isn’t good enough and he pretty much blames Rodgers for that.

“It’s OK,” Finley said Wednesday. “Not good enough at all. Something to be worked on, and try to work on it as much as I can, try to talk to him as much as I can, but like I said, it takes two people.”

Finley first brought up the chemistry issue this past summer, saying he didn’t have the necessary chemistry with Rodgers to put together a monster season in 2011. So, the obvious thing to do when you’re Jermichael Finley and clearly not having a monster 2012 season? Blame chemistry and your quarterback.

Has Finley’s act gotten as old for everyone else as it has for us?

Whether it’s valid or not and whether it was his intention or not, the last thing the Packers need right now are players criticizing each other in public. Hell, after his agent publicly said Rodgers isn’t a leader, it’s the last thing Jermichael Finley needs to be doing right now.

But hey, we all know this guy isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.

So what of old Sure Hands Finley? Well, he’s obviously pissed because he isn’t getting the ball enough. He has only 22 catches for 198 yards and one touchdown on the season. His nine-yards-per-reception average is weak and suggests he’s neither breaking tackles or getting open deep. It also doesn’t help that (by our estimation) he drops every third pass that comes his way.

At his current pace, Finley will finish the season with 633 yards and three touchdowns.

    Jesus tap dancing Christ. This guy never shuts his fucking mouth. Do you see Nelson talking? No. Do you see Jones talking? No. Do you see anyone on the team blaming someone else for their own fucking problems. NO. If Finley caught 10 balls in practice for every time he opened his mouth, maybe he would get the ball more. We’re all tired of this guys shit and I won’t shed a tear if he’s not back next season. He’s a cancer and needs to be dealt with that way. Either step the fuck up and do your job, or get out.

    Not that I would ever wish an injury on anyone…but I wouldnt be upset if Finley cant go this week and D.J. Williams finally gets his chance to show how much better he is than Finley.

    Does chemistry make you drop the ball when it hits you square in both hands? Fuck, maybe he should go back to science class.

  4. packer5 October 11, 2012

    Finley either is the biggest deformed idiot to ever open his mouth or he wants out of Greenbay.To bad d.j. cant stay healthy,I like him more as a receiver.Thats all Finley will ever have is potential and that dont win football games. Sense they did not trust him anyway ( short contract) should have traded him for 1 or more good draft picks.

    Won a Super Bowl without Finley. He was/is not essential to winning.

  6. Abe Frohman October 11, 2012

    I’m betting that he’s the same “anonymous” source that says the refs are out to get them.

  7. Chris October 11, 2012

    Trade this dumbass.

    Enough already.

    1. nurseratchett October 14, 2012

      That sums it up!

  8. therealChuckywasCecil October 11, 2012

    I have kept silent during the past two years hoping the drops would be less frequent and the “potential” would be realized. I kept thinking if we let him go, we’d regret it as he would go on to stardom elsewhere. I no longer feel this way as the drops continue, the mouth never stops and the questionable quotes and inferences indicate he is as stupid as it gets. 17 drops in 2 seasons. Put up or shut up, as impossible as this seems for him.

  9. Buddy October 11, 2012

    It doesn’t take two people to catch a ball YOTTO boy!

  10. White Lightning October 11, 2012


    I think Buster says what we all feel at this point..

  11. brad October 11, 2012

    Rodgers needs to blister one right at his fucking head, maybe that will knock some sense into him.

  12. Jurgens October 11, 2012

    What is chemistry? What does Aaron have to do to create more chemistry? Catch his own passes and hand them over to Finley? Good lord.

    Let the DJ Williams era begin:

  13. iltarion October 11, 2012

    DJ Williams pulled his hamstring in practice and had to sit out.

    As bad as that news is, I still think you bench Finley, injured or not. He is adding nothing to the team right now and needs a wake up call.

    In a way, he is right. Rodgers is a bad QB for him because he spreads it around and because he doesn’t like throwing the ball up to covered WRs like Brees does.

    Let’s all hope Andrew Quarless fully recovers from his injury and looks good coming off the PUP list.

    As much as I typically don’t join the “trade him” crowd. I have to agree on this one. It would be nice to trade this guy if possible. I’m sure he’d love to be a Dallas Cowboy and Witten is getting old and Marcellus Bennett is no longer there.

    what a bean head doofus. Is this chump for real? I’m sure he & his agent will soon be blaming Rodgers for throwing him bad passes or not enough passes or some assinine excuse. someone on this blog called Finley a cancer in the likes of TO & Randy Moss. I am begining to feel the same way. BYE BYE Jerkmichael…don’t let door county hit you in the butt on the way out of Wisconsin. Or Brown county either.

    He’s dead to me

  16. ryan October 11, 2012

    Bench him. Cut him. Fuck em’.

    1. nurseratchett October 14, 2012

      I wouldn’t fuck him. It wouldn’t be worth taking my pants off. I’m sure he blames premature ejaculation on Rodgers, too.

      Where’s DD? Maybe he’d do him….although he is a little obsessed with A-Rodg’s ass….

  17. icebowl October 12, 2012

    To be expected – when things go wrong the deflection begins…..
    Finley needs to get his act together before he becomes a permanent disgrace to the Green and Gold.
    Let’s friggin beat jj. Watts & Co on Sunday nite and move on…

  18. Dave October 12, 2012

    we need a high level programmer who is also a packers fan to take out finley’s twitter account. if the guy can’t control himself we should step in and “help” him out. Take control and post a simple “Jermichael needs to focus on football and will no longer be tweeting from this account” probably only half the battle, but could prove to be useful. flip side could be everyone who is both a pack fan and a twitter user could block finley, who knows, maybe if no one is listening he’d finally stfu

  19. Au Green October 12, 2012

    Put a fork in Finley, he’s done. Finley will be dropping passes next year for a different team.

  20. Brewcrew610 October 12, 2012

    One thing I have learned from what can you expect from a democrat.. personal responsibility??.. no way!!.. just another shining example.. blame blame blame

  21. Richard October 12, 2012

    This stud TE is listed as a game-time decision. i hope he is healthy enough that they activate him and then proceed to bench his ass just to make a point.

  22. Darrin October 12, 2012

    I’m done with this clown. Actually, he’s only ruining his chances to cash in with another team. I’m sure other GM’s are taking note of his antics. What an overrated fool.

  23. Richard October 12, 2012

    All he needs is a domestic disturbance arrest and he can officially be renamed DropMichael OchoOcho.

  24. Denise October 13, 2012

    BC610: WTF, does being Dem have to do w/personal responsibility you moron? Keep politics out of this sports blog please.

  25. nurseratchett October 14, 2012

    The chemistry was great in 2010….oh, wait, Finley was on IR that year, wasn’t he?

    As I said before, when the ball is in your hands & you can’t catch it, that’s physics, not chemistry.
