I guess we can say the same about the Bears. The question is: Will the Bears season be over by the time they get their players back? Or will it be over after that?

I wish Finley a speedy recovery and much success with his next team. It's too bad things didn't work out well in Green Bay.

Finley has been wildly inconsistent and now has suffered a major spinal injury. He may discover that his market price has plummeted dramatically. If you also consider some of these young TEs that are having a lot of success (Cameron, Reed, Thomas…)I just don’t see teams paying a high price for him when they can draft someone instead with much more upside and pay next to nothing for the first several years.

If his market is gone I can see GB bring him back at a reduced price again, but I hope they draft a good young TE early next year.

Rodgers seemed to have been on a "better page" with him this year.Finley hasnt been bickering nearly as much ( yes,its a contract year which im sure has a ton to do with it) point is,if Rodgers wants him back and is comfortable im sure TT will take that into consideration and with his price dropping like a stone,i also can see him re signing for a 1 or 2 yr deal at much less cap number then his 9-9.5M this year...We also have to wait and see if he even is allowed to or wants to play.Im sure if Quarrless plays well and proves hes healthy and on the same page ect that will play into it as well but in the end i do think Rodgers will have a say( now of course if Finley still wants 10M or more per,thats another story,or even if Finley wants what hes getting now ( 9-9.5M) thats another story as well) but also, there ( alot of times) seems to be that 1 team thats willing ( maybe not this year with Finleys neck/spinal cord injury) but after playing a year and show hes healthy willing to shell out and take that chance..Again, we have to see if Finley even wants to come back to the NFL again or if the Dr's will clear him to play.

I've seen very few players in NFL history accept pay cuts from their current team. And the players that have are nothing like Jermichael Finley. I've seen absolutely nothing about his personality that suggests he would do that. Plus Ted Thomoson has EXCELLED at moving players at the right time. Why ruin that stellar record? It's the thing I believe Thompson does best, Justin Harrell notwithstanding. Keeping Finley would simply compound his previous mistake.

BTW Finley's last contract cost the Packers 3 million dollars per TD. Considering his production, Finley was paid MUCH better than Aaron Rodgers. IF Aaron Rodgers got paid like Finley he would eat up the entire salary cap. So the pay cut would have to be enormous in order to make any sense.

The last thing the Packers need is to set a precedent where every receiver that is as unprodutive as Finley can get paid huge amouns of money. We already have many receivers that are MORE productive than Finley. I'm hoping that Thompson can close the Pandora's box he opened with Finley. Rewarding Finley more won't make that any easier. Are we ging to pay tens of millions of dollars to our receiving corp every year? Keeping Finley woud give every receiver the bargaining power to get a King's ransom and if they didn't they would justifiably move on to a team that treats their players fairly.

If James Jones was paid like Finley he would have been paid 52 million dollars for last season. If you were James Jones agent do you think you would fail to notice that?

what's the line out of Die Hard from Theo?
THE QUARTERBACK IS TOAST!

I feel bad for Finley. I wish him well. Where are the guys that wanted to dump A.J. Hawk and keep Desmond Bishop instead, I'm wondering? I think Thompson had that one sussed out. Liking the play of Lattimore too.

Lots of guys get injured. Most of them aren't rehabing in their multimillion dollar home paid from an enormously excessive contract. So, although I do wish Finley well, I can't really feel bad for him. If you want to feel bad for someone, feel bad for Hawk. I seem to recall that he took a pay cut in the offseason. Probably to help pay Finley's contract. Hawk is out there playing well! And what is his reward?

You cant feel bad for Finley ( after suffering a Spinal Cord injury) because hes rehabbing in a multimillion dollar home and paid an enormously excessive contract?
WOW

Says the person that famously stated after Culer's injury ""Cutler sucks, it's a blessing he got injured." Don't be a pathetic fool! The drama queen act is growing old. I want EVERY player in the NFL that gets injured to fully and quickly heal. Is it necessary for you to "feel bad" in order to want that? I'm so sorry you need to "feel bad" in order to be a decent human being. Football players suffer injuries. It is not only a risk of playing fooyball, it is a FACT. No player with a lengthy NFL career can avoid it. I don't "feel bad" for them getting injured and I especially don't feel bad for those that get disproportionately compensated. I do however have compassion and empathhy for them and I do want them to recover quickly, completely and as comfortably as possible. Is that too difficult for you to comprehend? I can explain it using smaller words if you like.

excuse me ignorant arrogant prick! a groin injury isnt serious,and i said ( No one wants anyone to get injured or likes to see anyone injured)
POINT IS,im so wrong for stating my point and YOU COMEBACK and bang on someone with a spinal cord injury you are not only an ignorant arrogant loudmouth prick but a pathetic hypocrite.]
We have all explained my explanation but you twist words to fit your arrogant needs,but,you stated you cant feel sorry for a spinal cord injury because he gets paid to much and has a Multimillion dollar home AFTER you take my words and twist the meaning to suit your egomaniac needs

Cutler is missing a month of football due to that groin injury. I see YOU do not think that was serious. Yet you want people to believe that you are soooooooo concerned about injuries? Who the heck do you think you are fooling?

YOU said "Cutler sucks, it's a blessing he got injured" and you did explain that nobody wants to see someone get injured BUT does that make it okay to say? If a person says that nobody wants to see somebody die, can they say any classless thing about a person following their death? You said what you said. And I stand by MY comment that I don't need to be lectured about compassion by a person that would say such a thing!

I bet you don't feel as bad as the Vikings feel right now. The Vikings have the self-pitty thing down to perfection.

Yet,you bitch and complain and twist my meaning and bash me YET,You then state you cant feel bad for someone ( who suffered a spinal cord/neck Injury) who may have suffered a career ending injury because he is rehabbing in a multimillion dollar house and makes excessive amounts of money and even more sad,you are so fricking clueless,you dont even see what a hypocrite you are,your ego is so fricking pathetic along with you attitude,its almost sad.I explained my meaning and everyone involved was mature enought to accept not only my explanation but knew what i meant but you ( with your huge Ego and arrogance completely missed it ) but still has to beat a dead horse by twisting words and acting like your typical Arrogant self.you are a sad human being.
