The more he talks, the more Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley makes himself sound like the scorned ex-girlfriend of Aaron Rodgers. There was a point in time a few years back where it looked like Finley could emerge as Rodgers’ favorite target and one of the best tight ends in the league. Now, any day with multiple catches is an above average one for the former Texas Longhorn.
Last month, Finley openly admitted that he and Rodgers have had serious chemistry problems over the past couple seasons. He reiterated it once again last week.
“Both of us need to just go out, maybe have a drink or two and just spill everything,” Finley said last week according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “It sounds easy, but it’s not. He’s throwing it to who he’s comfortable with. I think (Randall) Cobb’s taken my position from ’09. I want to line up where Cobb’s lining up because I know the ball’s coming there.
“But me and 12 just ain’t been on. He’s had some guys come through this year

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley still seems to have chemistry issues with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He recently talked about them.
MELTS DOWN LIKE VELVEETA
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has made public his concerns about how Aaron Rodgers doesn't appear to be looking his way, saying "me and 12 just ain’t been on."
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It may not seem like it from outside the Packers' locker room, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers insists that his relationship with outspoken tight end Jermichael Finley is actually quite strong at the moment.
Finley has commented numerous times over the past year that there can sometimes be a lack of chemistry between he and the NFL's reigning Most Valuable...
University of California football coach Jeff Tedford was fired Tuesday in his 11th season at the school, and his most successful former player didn't waste any time coming to his defense.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If the Packers are going to win their sixth consecutive game with a victory over the New York Giants on Sunday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers will need to perform better than he did last year in the playoffs when Eli Manning & Co. ended Green Bay's season prematurely.
In his weekly meeting with the media, Rodgers talked about a growing rivalry with the Giants...
Aaron Rodgers is a pretty sensitive guy.
Maybe not quite as sensitive as his interview on “60 Minutes” made him seem, but a caring and compassionate person nonetheless. Rodgers showed off his sensitive side yet again recently, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback teamed up with the MACC — Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer — Fund to help raise awareness for the work...
Enjoy…this one is for you SteveGoat. I am sure Arodge and Coach Mike were way impressed. Seriously?
Finley may be trying to talk his way out of Titletown

What did the Packers accomplish against Detroit on Sunday that they've done only rarely under coach Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers? "There’s definitely something we can draw from," McCarthy said, looking ahead to a stretch run that could culminate with a berth in the rugged NFC playoffs.
Week 12: Green Bay Packers vs. New York Giants
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
The Packers are on a five game winning streak but are wounded. The Giants are not playing their best ball right now. I think the game is close for an entire 60 minutes and call me crazy, but I think Mason Crosby ...
The city of Toronto is getting ready for the Grey Cup and everyone is excited. Even mayor Rob Ford wanted to get in on the fun.
He wanted to show the whole world he could play quarterback like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.
Unfortunately he ended up looking like Michael Vick.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Pro Football Writer The Minnesota Vikings must play perhaps their best yet this season to emerge from the last six games with a playoff spot, let alone a winning record.
The defensive line will have a big part in this.
They visit Chicago on Sunday and Green Bay the week after, facing the NFC North co-leaders...
Sometimes 12-years with a College Football program is too much. In fact in major conference college football it often is.
12-years for Jeff Tedford at Cal was exactly that: Too long.
Tedford was fired Tuesday morning as the Golden Bears limped through a 3-9 season. And yes, the school owes him money. A lot of money. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million for the next three...
How does the average Green Bay Packers fan spend his/her Thanksgiving Day? My guess would be rooting against the Detroit Lions, eating more than one should in the span of an afternoon, and filling up on beer (Leinenkugel, anyone?). While these are all wonderful ways to spend time with friends and family, Thanksgiving is also the holiday where we examine our lives to focus on the...
