Briggs is right about one thing. Finley is an idiot. I can't argue with him there. And that's as a Packers fan.

Still, here's pulling for a Packers win.

I'm gonna have to agree with Briggs too. Finley is an idiot.

Are BM and Finley related? It seems they are cut from the same cloth....

Sad,Packer fans agreeing with Briggs,but, yea, Finley is an idiot.We have listened to Finley say some stupid shit during the last few years and you just shake your head and wonder.
BM is an idiot as well,Hes throwing a hissy because the Packers shut him down, and its no surprise a Bear hates a Packer,but, have some class ahole

Plus BM has just joined the Bears. It is not like he has a long standing rivalry vs the Packers to "hate them". I would understand the hate coming from guys with years of experience vs the Packers but Marshall got shut down for one game, which is all he knows of the Packers. Not so much "hate" worthy is it?

Sounds to me like the cutless effect is running amok with the rest of da cubbies players - cutless whines-it then spreads

Part of it is GB has beaten CHI 5 straight as of right now,Cutler is 0-3 vs GB and Brandon Marshall hasnt beaten GB as a Bear as of yet,so im guessing that has something to do with it.
Marshall is mad but it was Cutler who shot off his mouth to start with and GB was answering back to Cutler.
Theres a reason why a talent like Brandon Marshall has been on 3 teams in his short career.WR like BM are the type of WR that teams franchise or lock up long term,BM gets traded,then traded again.This is the only controversy hes been in as a Bear and its really not a huge deal and hes trying to goad the Packers into Single coverage as Capers had a brilliant game plan and shut him down.YES, GB secondary ( who Bear fans say sucks) SHUT BM DOWN in game 1,lets see if they can do it in game 2.Finley should keep his fricking mouth shut,although i dont think he meant anything bad about it but still,although, Urlacher is at the end of a brilliant career,he is still a much better option then his replacement

Maybe we should forgive BM for his comments, after all it was probably his other personality that said it and not him. He probably just forgot to take is Multiple Peronality medicine again. Maybe it was his other personality that had such a poor outing against out Packers in September too. (What a joke he is).

It's a common thread throughout the NFL, everyone missing a hunk of cheese on their head hates the packers.
Brandon just catches on faster than most.

Yeah, well, we all know Urlacher benefits from those around him. They make his game better. This is a given.

Some people try to twist that inside out and say that it is he that makes his teammates better. But that is just too cliche to even bother responding to.

On Finley, of course won't try to defend anything he says, but I thought I read that Jordy Nelson has as many drops as Finley. So either quit being a hypocrite admit you just want people to 'know their place', i.e.'shut up and play'.

p.s. not a Finley fan

I think you are right about the “total drops” between the two, or at some point recently you were.
Before you start the hypocrite game please keep in mind other things come into play as well though and not be so short sighted.
#1 money
#2 drop%.
Now a quick check of the these stats will prove your point better.
#3 Not to mention Jordy does NOT run his mouth and is NOT a distraction, I firmly believe in something called “Packer People”. I think many players hate Finley’s loud mouth BS and it best fits teams like the Cowboys or Jets.

ps - Not a Finley fan either, but I like Nelson.

I should clarify by saying I am not an anti-fan.
Just that I am not a fan.

I could not find the stats about drop percent.
And, do these stats take into account what type of pass they are? Was it catchable. I mean, let's say a deep pass slightly overthrown. Having the receiver's fingertips touch that pass, would that be considered a dropped pass?

Recent tests have revealed that BM in fact has no personality at all.

Once again, our Bears proved their mouths could beat anyone, oh wait, that isn't where the game is won. Trash talking belongs on the playgrounds as do some of the Bear Players. Another nice job Cutler!
