Morning roundup: What's holding Finley back?

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Why hasn't Packers tight end Jermichael Finley realized his potential? And why is his career more closely following that of Jackie Harris rather than Keith Jackson? Harris was a former talented Packers tight end but never quite lived up to his potential. Jackson, another former Packers tight end, was a proven playmaker that helped the Packers win a Super Bowl title following the 1996 season. Pete Dougherty explores the factors that might be holding Finley back, and concludes that the Packers tight end is pressing and trying too hard to make plays.

Rob Demovsky explains what changed under special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum. *In his weekly Packers Q&A, Wes Hodkiewicz catches up with Packers rookie Jerel Worthy. *In his By the Numbers column, Eric Goska explains why Aaron Rodgers could have a field day against the Colts' defense Sunday. *In his Packers Insider, Demovsky gives a Thumbs Up to and a Thumbs Down to. *Mike Neal could be ready for action on Sunday, according to Hodkiewicz's Packers notebook. *Here's a transcript of my Packers chat with readers on Friday.
