A Violent Femme’s View – Blinded Me With Science
“I’ve got to get back in my groove and get the chemistry down with the quarterback,” Finley said. “As everyone can see, the chemistry’s not there with the quarterback.”
Sometimes, it’s the brief blurbs of Packers news, like this one from Rob Demovsky, that paint a clear picture. Jermichael Finley was on fire earlier in the season. He was magnificent in the Chicago game, yet Aaron Rodgers saw fit to chew on him a little bit. I admit, I was more than a little surprised by QB1′s comments, and though he was very professional (and also praised #88′s talents highly), I could tell he was serious as well. It’s not like Aaron, in my experience, to criticize a fine performance. I suspected he had his reasons. They are starting to appear to be more obvious.
Jermichael’s been dropping balls. We’ve seen it. Detroit, Atlanta. He’s lost focus, he’s got a contract coming up, and he’s got competition. Jordy Nelson has come on strong, and of course in the Detroit games James Jones (JAMES JONES?) did terribly well. Greg Jennings is almost always amazing and my beloved Double D still has what it takes to pull in the passes. Not to mention that another tight end, Tom Crabtree, has caught a TD pass more recently than Jermichael.
And yet Jermichael has the nerve to say his problem lies “with the ‘quarterback’”? No, Jermichael, your problem is with your mental focus, your lack of maturity and your attitude. Pull it together, shut up, be ready to listen and learn, and get the job done. Then you’ll have proper chemistry with AARON. (That’s his name, you see. You might see fit to use it.) And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to do this and get re-signed to a contract. But if you keep this up, which sadly is starting to seem like may be the case, I for one am just as happy to let you move on.
Chemistry. Whatever. You blinded me with your (lack of) science, Jermike. Grow up.
Go Pack Go.
