Finley tweets out intention to return, takes shot at Chmura

Packers tight end Jermichael Finley apparently wanted to make it clear his intention was to return to football, judging by the gratuitous use of capital letters.

But he also chose to take a swipe at the guy spreading the word his career could be over.

Finley took to Twitter to dispute the previous claim by former Packers tight end Mark Chmura that his career would end because of the surgery.

“For All The Craziness That’s Going Around ‘I’m Not Done With The Game Of FootBall,'” Finley said on Twitter. “Thanks To ‘Dr. Mark Chumra’ For The False Story.”

For Finley’s sake, we hope that he recovers well enough to play again. Whether that happens with the Packers or any other team remains to be seen, as he’s a free agent after this season.

    That was a lame Chimura slam. You need to incorporate the babysitter in there too

    Except that Chmura never said it was over, he said he “would bet it was over” based on his own experience with neck surgeries ending his football career. He even said that if it wasn’t over, it he would bet it was over in Green Bay based on how they handled Nick Collins.

    Team doctors cleared Finley to be an idiot.

    Finley, you should’ve used the Jerkstore line on him. Or tell him you slept with his wife (assuming she didn’t leave him after the house party incident).

    Playing Doctor with the babysitter…

    “I got a chance to talk to Jermichael Finley before the game, and I would bet my bottom dollar his career’s over. Over.”

    That’s what the babysitting molester narcissist said.
    He really should find other ways to be relevant instead of speaking for others.

    Sooooo….is Chmura going to pay up or is he going to Rodgers someone out of their winnings?

    Finley’s career may not be over but I think it’s a safe bet to say that his Packer career is.

    That turned out to be a pretty expensive ‘option’ to pick up. Gotta think that that extra dough could have kept Greg Jennings in town.

    Too bad…all around.

    Finley is an idiot. Came very close to becoming a quadriplegic. He has an opportunity to walk away not only a rich man, but healthy and able to hold his kids. To threaten that is pure ego and whacked priorities in life.

    I wonder if there actually is a Dr Mark Chumra out there??? That would be funny, but, if you are going to go out there and take a shot at someone, you might want to spell his name right, just saying

  13. dragonfly99 says: Nov 15, 2013 3:21 PM

    Because of his injury, I can’t imagine he would draw a lot of interest in free agency. He would be wise to walk away now while he still can.

  14. nflofficeadmin says: Nov 15, 2013 3:26 PM

    at this point all one can say is, bueno suerte.

  15. farvite says: Nov 15, 2013 4:04 PM

    Johnny Holland
    Roland Mitchell
    Sterling Sharpe
    Mark Chmura
    Terrance Murphy
    Jeremy Thompson
    Nick Collins

    .. You’re done bro.

    … At least as a Packer.

    Well, like 90% of other NFL players……what else is he gonna do if he gives up football?

  17. judsonjr says: Nov 15, 2013 4:24 PM

    A lot of the Packer players that had neck issues have wanted to come back, but the Packers would never OK it.

    Sterling Sharpe wanted to come back, even talked about going to Dallas…it never happened.

    Collins wanted to come back, but thought better of it.

    The Packers traded for Eric Dickerson in the early 90’s, but wouldn’t let him play because of a neck condition. He even said he’d sign a waiver to keep playing, they still said “no thanks”.

    You’re right about all those retired neck problems except one: Sean Richardson – he healed up.
    If Finley heals like that, he’ll play.

    I think Boykin has more yards than Jennings this year? – I could be wrong, but We haven’t missed a beat at Receiver – it’s Oline/Linebacker/Secondary/QB injuries that’s hampering us this year.

    He simply should have reminded MC that he was a pediatrician NOT an orthopedic surgeon, and to stick to his chosen field of speciality.

    What The Hell Is With The CapiTals? It is harder to type like that than correctly. Baffled.

  23. atthemurph says: Nov 16, 2013 9:15 AM

    It depends on where the fusion was done. We’ve heard Chmura say it was between the 3 and 4 which means history. If it was 5 and 6 then he could come back.

    How about a report on where exactly that surgery was done then we’ll know?
