Jermichael Finley

Needs the ball. Or else…

You knew the only thing that could derail the Green Bay Packers high-powered offense was the Green Bay Packers.

We, along with just about everyone else who knows football, questioned whether there were enough balls to go around during the preseason. Well, there aren’t enough for [intlink id="209" type="category"]Jermichael Finley[/intlink], that’s for sure.

Finley was constantly double teamed by Denver last Sunday. Quarterback [intlink id="25" type="category"]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] responded by throwing the ball to his receivers and the Packers won going away.

Finley responded by bitching about not getting the ball.

“Double-teams,” Finley said, shaking his head. “That’s something that we have to go back and look at and create ways to get (me) the ball, somehow.”

I’m sure that’s the coaching staff’s first priority. Finley also explained to Rob Demovsky how this doesn’t make him selfish.

“For sure, they took me out of the game,” Finley told Demovsky. “I don’t know what I came out with, but hopefully we can go back and dial something up for the double teams. We’ve got to have something for it.

“We’ll have to go back, not being selfish or nothing, but go back and dial up something so you can get your playmaker the ball in games like that when it’s close.”

And so, the first chink in the armor is named Jermichael Finley.

Hopefully, the veterans on the team can reign him in.
