    Boys lets not speculate and just wait and see what comes about all this!

    Finley was good for us no doubt, no one can say when he was on field last year he didnt contribute. Having a QB like Rodgers makes players great, so im not to "worried" if we lose Finley, love him back but I sure wont be panicing. We dont need vet WR/TE. Rogers has proven that with Cobb and now Boykin and Quarless. Miles White will be next in line, I could see flashes and with year under all there belts they seem to just get better in GB! This is what a GREAT qb does for a team, takes off pressure from the rookies. We got a lot of talent, the least of our worries is the receveing core.

    Defense please :)

    Rodgers and Quarless don´t seem to be on the same page, Q had most of his reception when Flynn was throwing him the ball.

    Quarless seemed to be on the same page with Rodgers in Chicago.

    He had two receptions in the game, nothing to get excited about.

    One of those 2 was a HUGE reception. He also got screwed out of a 3rd.

    It´s true the one reception was an important one, nevertheless it´s a fact Rodgers doesn´t target him a lot.

    Quarless has had five drops during his career, I don´t think that´s a huge problem with him.

    Quarless had 87 receptions for 1,146 yards and 8 TDs during a four year career at Penn State.

    Agreed. No news in this situation is probably bad news for Finley.

    Does anyone think the TE position has grown enough with lyerla and Rodgers that we might not even look at Finley when/if he's cleared? I guess we need to see them actually take some snaps in the offense but who says Finley is worth the time and risk even if cleared? I mean, he was improving last year, a lot, but he has always had a drop problem and he's the only guy I've really ever heard talk about "chemistry" with AR being a problem. I just don't see GB taking this risk if Rodgers or lyerla emerge or both emerge big in this preseason.

    I don´t think Dr. McKenzie will ever clear Finley to play again for the Packers even if some other teams might want to take the risk.

    I hear you Dylan. I've never been a huge Finley fan only because he has never been a consistent performer, whether due to injury or chemistry issues. His potential is through the roof but not seen often enough. Personally I'd rather dedicate snaps to some of the younger guys with Quarless - another inconsistent performer - in place. I don't think that we need to spend the money on the TE position as much as defense and O-line.

    Maybe he is able to stand up straight? I'm hoping for the best and unfortunately I feel the best would be him not being able to play yet being healthy enough to live well.
