Found July 12, 2013 on Football Nation:
Jermichael Finley, honestly, is one of my most hated players. It's weird too, because I'm a Packers fan.Well, it's not weird. The weird thing is, I'm about to tell you why you should put him on your fantasy team.Finley last year was 19th in fantasy points for tight ends. He's the 7th highest-paid tight end in the league. That's not good. He only had two touchdowns.What's even worse, is he had the most drops in the entire league last year. I've even nicknamed him "Drop-michael Fin-hands." Plus, he's only played two full seasons, and that was at the beginning of his career.But, I guess we should talk about the good.Luckily, after the threat of losing his job (which I kind of hoped for), he stepped it up, gaining 150 extra yards with only about five more catches.

The one thing Rodgers did say to the reporter is, ”at some point you’re going to get a real job.” While I respect and  believe TMZ does a pretty good job with reporting news, to have a guy go out and ask Aaron Rodgers what...

Packers' TE Matthew Mulligan happy to do 'the dirty work'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Matthew Mulligan understands his role. Now with his fifth NFL team after signing with the Green Bay Packers this offseason, the 28-year-old tight end doesn't expect to make highlight-reel catches or have many Lambeau Leap-type moments.

Green Bay Packers: Mason Crosby needs a return to form

Mason Crosby (Photo Credit: AP) Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby has one of the strongest legs in the NFL.  He was also one of the most accurate kickers.  The key word: was.  Last season was no doubt Crosby’s worst season as a pro.  He had a career low 63.6 field goal percentage, which was second worst in the league.  Aside from his field goal percentage, Crosby also...

Green Bay Packers: 6 Bold Predictions For 2013

Anyone can make “bold” predictions about a team. I could tell you that the Chiefs will have a major turnaround, get into the playoffs as a wild card, and pound their way through the AFC to the Super Bowl. I could predict that the new schemes in Cleveland will make Trent Richardson a 2500 yard back and allow Brandon Weeden to complete 70% of his passes. It’s easy to throw out...
