    In Seiferts blog on ESPN.com, he quoted MM saying that Finley is a long shot for sundays game.


    The Packers dont have anyone to fill his shoes (2 TE's on the depth chart). Its D. Lee and done. Maybe a fullback to line up in his spot to provide pass and run protection? I think this might hurt because Tauscher and Clifton will be back and Im not sure about Green's status so it would be nice to have a healthy team, especially Finley who is a big part of that offense. We will be missing something is he cant go.

    Spencer Havner apparently plays iron man football for the Pack. He is now listed as a 3rd TE and a 3rd LB per GB wesbite. ESPN has him listed as a LB alone.

    Havner had TD on sunday. OHHHH and he also plays special teams... what a guy!

    He made the long touchdown, then tackled Cribbs in the very next kick return. That, to me, is a tough, team player.

    Hopefully Havner can step his game up again this Sunday. It would definitely help.

    Havner could actually have a big game Sunday. The Vikings pass defense is suspect and we all know they will be paying most attention to Driver and Jennings, Jones and Nelson leaving that open for checkdown TE's and some dump passes to RB's. This could be a good game for GB if they can get better pass coverage. TJ Lang looked good. Even though it was Cleveland, I really think he could be the real deal. Packers will win if they can get some pass protection.

    Will Jordy be healthy enough to play this Sunday?

    Would've helped if Jordy was around to play. Time for James Jones to shine!
