Jermichael Finley says his knee is like new

Jermichael Finley AP

Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was off to a great start in the first four games of 2010 before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the fifth. Now Finley says he’s ready to play just as well as he did nine months ago.

Finley posted a message on Twitter this morning noting that he’s been working out, pushing himself, and feeling as good as ever on his surgically repaired knee.

“I just thought to myself that its May & this knee feels brand new already,” Finley said. “This what my Pack Fans been waiting 4 huh.”

Seeing Finley catch 80 passes for 1,200 yards — what he was on pace for through four games — is certainly what Packers fans have been waiting for. The question is whether Finley can stay healthy for long enough that the Packers buy into him as a wise long-term investment.

    If healthy he is the second-best TE in football behind Gates (*assuming Gates is healthy lol)

    Yep. It’s always 100%… always ‘just like new’. Have you ever heard a player say otherwise?

    Speak for yourself. The kid is hardly annoying, and anything but a turd.

    A.) Gates? Please. Gates is the poor man’s version of this kid. Going to blow up this year, which is the last thing the rest of the NFC North needs.

    Further, his injury last season was a freak one. Had Donald Lee not fumbled, Finley would never have been jogging back to the ball, and never would have taken a shot to the knee.

    Bet against him, I dare you.

    B.) I see based on your name, you are eye to eye with Rashard Mendenhall, so you clearly are the cerebral type.

    C.) “Since when did you become the physical type?!?” (Biff, from Back to the Future – sorry, couldn’t resist, all)

    I am a packer fan, and even I am tired of hearing this guy open his mouth. I think this guy would make the top 10 dumbest NFL players list, excluding the criminally stupid.

    Unfortunately he may have more time to heal if both of these money hungry jackasses don’t just get a deal done and get back to football.

    @bearsrulepackdrool- NFC Championship… nuff said.

    This guy is so annoying. He talks an awful lot for a guy who has done nothing. Hey “Nineleveninsidejob”…..you are a complete moron. Comparing Gates to Finley is like comparing a Corvette to a Honda Accord. I can tell by your screenname your low level of intelligence.

    @bearsrulepackdrool – did Jay Crybaby Cutler come to your house to watch the Super Bowl? Cuz he sure as hell wasn’t playing in it.

    Won’t matter. There is a new TE sheriff ruling the NFC North. His name is Kyle Rudolph. Remember the name Packer chumbalones.

    Wow…that one hurt. So sweet watching the NFL’s Top 100 of 2011 this past Sunday and watching B.J. Raji take that Cutler pass the other way for six…

    Since I was reading one name I thought I would read them all. Did you know you misspelled “green”?

    Finley is a talent, but the Packer offense got much more dangerous after he went down and McCarthy and Rodgers started spreading throws around instead of trying to get the ball to Finley so often. He makes the Packers offense incredibly tough to defense – as long as he’s one of the options, not always the main one.
    And Pervy, really? You’re so desperate that you’re going to talk up a guy who hasn’t played a pro down yet as the new saviour/missing piece of the puzzle? Rudolph may turn out to be good, but he’d be maybe fourth on the Packers’ TE depth chart.

    Ten bucks says his best days are over. Hope I’m wrong but this guy ain’t going over the middle and taking any more hits.
    I thinking his hands won’t be so great anymore.
    Dropped another one Germichale???

    No, but seriously, Finley is an annoying turd… Great talent – but very much a turd.

    Who?

  22. leroysbutler says: May 12, 2011 6:33 PM

    Pervy is to knowledgable football fan -as is

    Donald Trump is to knowledgable presidential candidate.

  23. ted1sheckler says: May 12, 2011 10:26 PM

    Finely has played to injury plagued seasons, yet he’s already better than Gates? Is it any wonder that the rest of the NFL fans hate you Packer fans?
    It’s not suprising that you are as a dumb as you are. After all, this is a fanbase that buys “stock” with the value of toilet paper, and thinks that makes them “part owner”.
    Only in Wisconsin!
