Jermichael Finley is back in several ways
By Kevin Seifert
In Tuesday's Camp Confidential, I noted an episode that quickly grew into one of the highlights of the Green Bay Packers' first weekend in training camp.
Tight end Jermichael Finley, back from knee surgery that cost him 11 regular-season games last season, caught two passes within a second or so after two quarterbacks inadvertently threw his way during individual drills. So if a picture is worth 1,000 words, how much would a video of the play be worth?
As it happens, the Packers posted official video of the play on their site. You can watch it by following this link. It's worth your 24 seconds.
Finley, by the way, might have been the first Packers player or coach to acknowledge the growing public discussion about the new NFC force the Philadelphia Eagles are trying to build out east. Tuesday, Finley tweeted:
Man i wish we had the damn Eagles on the schedule. All this "Dream Team" talk is killin me..
That's what the playoffs are for, Jermichael. That's what the playoffs are for.
