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, and he’s gone to them instead of me. And really, it’s out of my hands at the end of the day. If I could throw myself the ball and run under it, I’d do it every play because he’s just not throwing me the ball like he used to.” A nagging shoulder injury hasn’t helped, but Finley said he believes he is “about fourth” in terms of receiving options for Rodgers. In addition to the comments he made in October, Finley also said over the summer that he and Rodgers had no chemistry at all during the 2011 season. At this point, Rodgers is probably just tired of hearing his tight end complain. Maybe they’ll go out and have a drink and sort all this out. Or maybe the more Finley talks the more Rodgers will pretend he doesn’t exist. Photo credit: Chris Morrison-US PRESSWIRE
