Jermichael Finley

Yes, this thread is way premature, but I pose the topic anyway.

What do you all think of Jermichael Finley, the athletic receiving tight end for the Packers? Do you rank him right now with the other established top-flight tight ends in the league (Antonio Gates, Dallas Clark, Jason Witten, Tony Gonzalez)? How good do you think he can be?

Re: Jermichael Finley

I'd say he's tier 2 at this point in his career. I wouldn't say he's at the elite level just yet, but he will be. He's got all the skills needed to be the next Gates, Gonzalez, or Clark. Had he remained healthy last year, he would be Top 3 or 4, no doubt. As the season progresses, he's going to become something special.

Really? No mention of Witten?

Re: Jermichael Finley

He's a beast, but he needs to spend more time on the field vs IR. 50% of his 4 years in the pros has been on IR.

Slipped my mind. Witten is definitely elite. I love watching that play against the Eagles when he lost his helmet and kept going, despite the team it was against.

Agreed.

He has all the talent to become one of the elite TEs in the league, but he just needs to remain healthy and I honestly can't mention him with those names YET until he proves that. Once he does, then I have no problem with mentioning his name with the Gates' and Wittens of the world.

Re: Jermichael Finley

Finley has all the talent, but need to see some consistent results. He was on his way to a 900 yard receiving season last year, it seems like, before he got injured. 2009 was a decent year.

1-2 years of elite production and then he can be considered top 3-4.

Re: Jermichael Finley

He is an elite talent. One of if not the best in the league. His talent puts him with Gates and Witten. But the best isn't decided on talent alone. You have to perform on the field and put up numbers. He hasn't done that yet. When he does, he will then be considered one of the best.
