GREEN BAY, Wis. Jermichael Finley is tired of getting in trouble for comments made in the media. So, the typically outspoken Packers tight end tried a new approach following the 23-14 win Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings.
Finley, who has talked openly over the past year about his lack of chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, caught six passes for 60 yards against Minnesota. After the game, Finley had an interesting, very Rasheed Wallace-like exchange with reporters in the locker room.
Asked if it felt good to contribute in a big win, Finley responded, "I think the Packers and the offense played great today and I'm just glad to be a part of it."
Then asked of his exuberance on the field following a 21-yard catch, Finley said, "The Packers and Aaron Rodgers and the offense played great today and I'm just glad to be a part of it."
Another question, another "I'm just glad to be a part of it" answer.
