When he isn’t throwing wild haymakers at other guy’s helmets, Jermichael Finley has been kicking ass, apparently.
“He’s been running his routes really well,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “Something clicked last year midseason … and it’s carried over this spring.
“He’s got himself in unbelievable shape, and he’s come in and been dominating out there. I’m really proud of him and the steps he’s made.”
Coaches are saying Finley has also made progress as a run blocker, an area where he was awful last season.
That sounds about right, considering this is a contract year for Finley. You know guys always come to play when their futures are uncertain.
Finley is clearly taking things seriously for the first time in his career. He hasn’t been running his mouth like in past years. Instead, he speaks to the media in only sound bite form.
If he can stay healthy, Finley just might make himself the focal point of the passing game again and get that pay day he’s looking for.
I like how we split him out wide & create match-up nightmares for under-sized corners.
With Jennings gone, something tells me he’ll have a big season & receive more targets this year..(contract year too).
We’ve heard this all before. We’ll see.
His run blocking wasn’t THAT bad last year. He has been improving on that every year.
Maybe something just clicks when you stop running your mouth, do your job and worry about YOU?
Does anybody know where I can stream the game tomorrow?
NFL.com has the game livestream…NFL channel also is re-airing it at midnight, I believe.
You can watch any NFL game you want all season long for free at TheFirstRow.eu. The only sucky part is it isn’t HD quality.
If none of those work, Atdee.net or atdhe.eu
Yeah, 1265 Lombardi Ave.
What if you live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado?
Obviously you teleport to the game and steal someone’s tickets, duh.
Then I’d hit the slopes and forget about some preseason game whose #1 priority is not getting anyone important hurt.
Wow, are you a jackass.
That is an ironic user name for someone who takes life too seriously.
WTMJ is live streaming all games now.
Finley will have to dominate with Cobb and Jordy hurt. Can he play right tackle?
like I’ve said previously, Finley has the “shut up” part down pat, now lets get with the “put up” part. Show us what you’ve got and you’ll get that payday. …….a contract that is cap friendly , of course………
I smell franchise tag…or perhaps two in a row – contract year each year…for the next 3…
Greg Jennings switched his mouth with Finley’s
Update me next week when we starts dropping every pass again.
In about 5 weeks your inbox is gonna be mighty full.
It kind of pisses me off when players…get “more serious”, or “try harder” or get in better shape…in a contract year. It implys they aren’t committed to being the best player they can in other seasons.
Finley was ranked 12th in the league by yards last year, 34th in the league by TDs. Yet the Packers are paying him the 4th highest salary of all tight ends in the league. Even if he does well, he will probably only deserve a contract like he has now. Let’s hope he doesn’t do a Greg Jennings and think he deserves a huge raise.
Exactly deepsky. I don’t care for Finley at all, it’s been overhyped for too long, every year the conversation starts out…”If Finley can……”…Enough already, his bad traits far outweighs his good. Overhyped and overpayed.
