    Finley has been a bit better catching the ball lately, but the area he's most improved in over the last month? His blocking. That's almost more important than the drops issue and I think It's part of why the running game has improved lately.

    I have noticed this as well, I have even seen him running down field to help block. It's very refreshing to see.

    Thing I've noticed about Fin blocking is the guy has to be shorter than him, or he has to catch the guy off guard. But that chip of his has been dropping guys. Fontenot has done a good job

    I'll give you that a TD may be more worth celebrating than a first down. But I would contend that a first down is at least as significant as a sack. It keeps the Offence on the field for another 4 downs, that is pretty significant imo.

    I think Finley blocks whomever he is supposed to. I don't know if the guy was shorter than him or not but he blasted him and then went out for a pass on one play I noticed last night.

    Yay! I stood up for James Jones and Finley at the start of the year and they both turned out! Not often both MM and TT are wrong about a player.

    They weren't that's the point. If they stood by both players and were excited about their prospects for the upcoming season then why would I doubt their intelligence?

    MM has been an unwavering supporter of Finley. Calls him the hardest worker on the team.
