Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Aaron Rodgers says everything is fine with him, Jermichael Finley

National Football Post

Since the start of the season there have been a number of points when you’ve wondered about the relationship between Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tight end Jermichael Finley.

Basically, that’s because Finley has talked about it repeatedly as his levels of frustration with his involvement in the passing game fluctuates.

But Rodgers said it’s all good between him and Finley and he is not concerned with published quotes that have been attributed to his teammate. Finley’s primary gripe has been about “chemistry” or a lack of it. Finley has 35 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns this season, not up to par with production he’s had in the past. Drops have been a significant issue for Finley this season.

“Most of the time if something is said, whether it came out wrong or maybe it did come out the way they want it to, I have an open door policy at my locker. Come talk to me, and if you don’t, I’m going to come talk to you probably,” Rodgers said on Tuesday on 540 ESPN in Milwaukee, according to Jason Wilde of

“With Jermichael, I think it’s been about getting on the same page and spending some time together,” Rodgers said. “And I think the thing I appreciate about him over the last three or four weeks is just how he really has been a good teammate. I think he really has. He cares about his guys; he’s been intentional about spending time with me and wanting to make sure we’re on the same page. And I think it’s helped. I really do think it’s helped.

“I think the best is still in front of him for this season and I think there’s going to be even more opportunities as we go. I really like what I’ve seen from him and I think he’s going to be important to us as we make this stretch run.”
